Ling Long Tires

We recently bought a 2001 Safari Panther. Previous owner put new tires on the RV. The dealier I bought from indicated the tires were not the best quality. We replaced the steering with Hankook (they didn't have Toyo in stock)

Looking at the RV today where it is getting serviced and the the rears are Ling Long. Have plenty of tread, no checking and are 4 years old.

Anyone heard of Ling Long Tires? Since virtually all tires today are made off shore, I am sure these are another Chinese or Korean brand.
Searching the internet, can only find a dealer in Omaha who has them.

Any advise on these? Do they need to be replaced now, or do you think they are OK for a couple of years.

Thanks

Rick

Ling Long tires? YIKES! Never heard of them but the name alone does not instill confidence.

Ling Long tires , Might be just as good as any other tire though.

I thought HanKook was a funny name but I think Ling Long has them beat.

No cracking, plenty of tread with no separation, I'd keep an eye on them for 2 or 3 more years, if they stay that way, they ride.

It is one word Linglong and they are made in China. If you google Linglong truck tires you will find a lot on them.

If they have made it 4 years and remain in good shape, I wouldn't worry about them.

Many TT and 5th wheel owners, me included, have had problems with Chinese tires...I would watch them very closely. If they start to wear unevenly, get rid of them, I had tread separation.
