If y'all must use an ST style tire, there is an American made ST tire by MULTI-MILE- My son has ordered a set for his 5er- I had personal experience with this brand several years ago on a passenger car- The product was very good in all aspects- I believe the factory is in Ohio- JMHO- DD

File Complaint About Tires Here http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchSafetyIssues

We can continue to banter back and forth on this forum about XX brand tire failures, or we can actually try to do something about it.

Use the link above to submit your actual failure information.

Multi Mile is a brand that is marketed by the same company that does Tow-Max.

Welcome to TBC Brands

Carlisle is the ST company located in Ohio, but I think the tires are still made overseas just like the Goodyear ST's.

I have been assured that the STs made by Multi Mile are manufactured in the "good old USA"- When the tires arrive, if they are not of US manufacture, they will be refused and our search for an American made product will resume- JMHO- DD

Multi Mile sells the Power King - Towmax Brand, so they are not made in the USA

When I did some research, I found that many Tire companies do the engineering in one country ( like the US or Canada), then contract the large tire plants in China and Taiwan to produce the tire.


These Chinese production sites, also make generic tires and private label them for sale in different parts of the world.


Companies like TBC brands imports these privately labels tires and distributes to lots of different tire shops in the US.

Update: Jayco is doing right by me and correcting my tire situation. This is not the first time Jayco has stood up tall on an issue and just reinforces my decision to stay with them. So for all you guys keeping score, put a talley mark for satisfied owner.

Not having to deal with Tow Max or TBC brands is worth it alone as I am sure they would find a way to blame me.

That's excellent news "3's"! What are they going to do for you, if I may ask?
