Well...one thing is for certain. There are plenty of people on here that have had lots of problems with American tires...so what's the difference?
If someone says they had a problem with a Chinese tire, would you only buy American tires, even though there are plenty of folks on here that have had problems with pretty much every brand out there?

I'm not being contrarion here...just pointing out that "Chinese tires" is painting with a pretty broad brush, and you'd likely be better off researching specific brands.

Good luck,

I have Cooper Roadmaster on my MH. Made in China to cooper specs.
I am very happy with them. The only difference between a MH tire and a truck tire is the price. A tire dealer sales both. Same tire.

I recently purchased six (Capitol Brand)Korean made tires for my bounder.So far I am pleased with the tires.My coach is generally driven less than 3000 miles per year so they will age out before I wear them out.

A close friend owns a tire shop and both he and his son are wearing them on their coaches.The set on his coach are four years old and up till this point have given him great service.

Ask me in a couple of years and I tell you what I think of them.

We just bought 4 Sailun 19.5" for our RV. The shop where we bought them recommended them because he said alot of the local trucking and wrecker services buy them and love them because they get great mleage and are not as expensive as Goodyear or Michelin. If our experience proves otherwise, we shall of course let everyone know immediately. Good traveling.

the other day i read a story about a weird thing in china - a heavy truck ran 1000+ miles from western area toward east; at one place it crushed a bridge. the investigator later found out - the truck was carrying 120 ton goods in spite of 40 ton limit. holy cow!! i was amazed how strong the truck was, wondering who made it, along with sense of lawless there (i guess in china, there may not be as many weigh stations as in us, or they didn't enforce the laws much). now i am thinking the tires were not bad

(the same went with a high rise residential building collapsed in shanghai years ago. the funny thing was - the entire building was lying on ground with everything intact, including the glass on windows . while blaming the poor quality control and corrupted officials, i saw the bright spot - the structure design and construction were excellent )

I try not to buy anything made in China when I have a choice. So, I certainly wouldn't put my families life in the hands of the Chinese.

Well the post here just reinforces the fact that nothing is a sure bet when it comes to tires for a motor home. And I guess you can have the best that money can buy but if you run over something, the debris on the road does not care where the tire is made. Thank you for all of your replies, they were very helpful. I believe I am going with a Firestone FS560 for just a few bucks more and give them a shot.

Bought two sets of Toyos. Made somewhere in Asia. No regrets. Last time I was asked to sign a disclaimer that the Toyos might not give as smooth a ride as Michelins. I never noticed a difference and saved many hundreds.
