"H188ST" (WD) is a tire company

Bought a used 2011 Jayco 165 and it has the above listed tires. I looked up the DOT tire code and the are made in China in the 33week of 2010. They look good and I have put about 50 miles on them with no problem. Should I keep them? Local use only? Change them? Anybody have good luck with these tires?
Specifically ST185/80D13

Trailmaster tires

Check out this line. Looks like OE tires

Do a search for WD trailer tires and you can read all day on different forums about them.IMO they are nearing the end of their useful life on a travel trailer. I would want to start out on a used trailer with new tires just for peace of mind. These look like the original tires.

My personal timeline on ST tires is 3-4 years, most others are (I believe) is 4-5. As far as OEM China tires go my personal timeline is from the dealer to the tire store and that's about 5 miles.

Check your Maxxis DOT code. You may be swapping those China tires for China tires.


In 2009 Maxxis had worldwide revenue of over $2 billion.[2] Maxxis has operations in Taiwan, China, Thailand, Vietnam, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, The Netherlands, Japan and Dubai. The company employs 28,000 people, and its products are distributed in approximately 170 countries.[3]
The company recently built a design and testing proving ground in China,[4] and has five other research facilities in Taiwan, China, the United States, and the Netherlands.

Maxxis is the only St tire I would ever consider.

Don’t let mileage or looks influence your decision on when to change your tires. Go by the date code. I use four 4 years as my benchmark.

I would be strongly considering new tread. Depending on how and where the unit has been stored, they maybe good or maybe not. I do not like being stuck on the side of the road in a rain storm. Also when tt tires go they usually damage the wheel well. Which adds a whole new headache.
