I'm not sure I understand this statement. Please explain how the tires, the only thing that actually touches the ground, don't support the weight?

This X17Z is a disaster waiting to happen on the freeway / interstate. I have a Reese dual cam hitch attached to a 2008 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 access cab with the factory tow package. This tow profile is way off level. The TV sags on the rear and the X17Z sags in the rear.
Your Tacoma should handle this trailer just fine. I don't think you have the hitch setup right.

Im sure jayco got a "good deal" with the tire mfg to carry their line and install on most of their TT at the factory. Sadly most consumers dont check into or care about the type/brand of tires that come new on their TT and just assume since they are new all will be OK. I see Jayco doing this deal to keep prices lower and to move more units at the dealership.

If these tires are so bad, why aren't we seeing lots of trailers by the side of the roads while traveling? When we were at the RV show, lots of manufacturers are using the Towmax tires. So by now there are many thousands of these out there.

I'm not sure what brand came on our new 2012 197, but they are pretty much done after a couple of short trips around here and a 6000 km run to Whitehorse and back. I will most definitely be putting a better grade of tire on it this time around. El cheapo tires are just that - cheap!
