Hope the Samsons you get are round. A friend bought six that were not even close. Samson said ship them back to China and we will let you know if we decide to give you any credit adjustment on them. Great warranty, eh? He ended up dumping them and bought 6 of another brand from Les Schwab.

Talking about Dougie Gary?

He and Mags are really good people.
Had the chance to visit with them when they passed through Idaho!

Samson

I put 6 on my 86 Winnebago Elandan 31ft and i love them, I paid $1100 out the door at my local tire guy here. They ride great, balanced out well, and they hold air so i am really happy with them. The date code is two weeks out of when i bought them so say what you will but i think there are pretty good tires.

Just my .02 cents on them IMHO

How is that possible?

They are made in China and they are shipped by boat which takes 6 weeks and then they have to be shipped from Long Beach to the dealer??

I bought a set of six back in Jan this year, after two tries at balancing them, the dealer told me that they would install a new set but it was a take it or leave it deal. I opted for credit for the Samsons toward Bridgestones and am very pleased with them.
The Samsons shook the whole motorhome at any speed above 55 mph.
The dealer said they will never sell another set of Samsons.

Sorry, I didn't mean to flame you - I just couldn't understand how the date could be just 2 weeks.

If you give information to people then you really should proof read it otherwise there is no value in your post.
