Towmaxx tires??

There are Towmaxx tires on our new-to-us 3912 Cyclone TH.
If I recall, they are Chinese junk and have created tons of problems.

Which tire should I replace them with. THX in advance. Johnny/Ruthie in beautiful Colorado and Iowa.))

You may be able to go to a 235 80r16. Guessing you have 225 75r16. Goodyear g614 may be a choice. You may consider going to a 17.5" tire. You will need to buy wheels too. We did that with our fuzion. Better tire options than with 16". There is lots of trailer tire info, opinions, alternatives to make your head spin. Good luck on your tire search!

My Bounder came with 4mo old tires. I read the manuf website and they claim to be good tires. Made for big truck trailers.

DoubleCoin 8R x 19.5

They look pretty good, and I am NOT going to be replacing them for a few yrs. Anyone have any knowledge of them??

Bounder is a class A motorhome with 19.5's
Cyclone is a toyhauler w/ 16's. Can't compare the two, but thanks for the reply.
Never heard of the tire you are referring to. Happy New Year. Johnny in Iowa.

Well I have six of them on my trailer. A year old and no problems. Do have my spare on currently as I have one to replace, but that is do to road hazard and momentary inattention on my part.

I will be a "lone voice in the woods" here, but the problem is more with improper inflation and overloading than with where the tire are manufactured. And that includes China. There were complaints about trailer tires long before manufacturing in China. Trailer tires are simply used at their maximum loading by many trailer manufacturers and more prone to failure if not properly maintained and not overloaded! And 'overloading' need be only on one side of one axles to create problems.

All tire manufacturers including Michelin, Goodyear, BF Goodrich to name just a few have manufacturing facilities throughout the world not just China. All tires manufactured for the US are subject to DOT regulations and monitored by highway traffic safety people.

It is simply easier to blame China than properly weigh our trailers, upgrade tires and maybe rims when necessary and tightly monitor tire pressure, wear and most importantly individual tire loads.
