Australian Tires?

OK, so cheap Charlie here thought it would be a great idea to buy some nice rims for the trailer. Got them from the a RV surplus store, however, they had tires made in China on them. Two seasons, and the tires are blowing out, and busting cords....so.........

I called my tire place, and they suggested Master Track Tires, 225/75/15E. I said OK, as long as they are not the cheap tires from China. I have done some poking around, and, according to the DOT codes on the sides of the tires, they were made between June 20-26 of 2011. Also, these tires are made in Australia. From what I've been able to gather, a division of Dunlop. {Dunlop bought out the company in 1980} My search also showed that Mor-ride pulled the Tow Maxx tires, and went to Master Track tires. Oh, I did get 5 tires. I want a good spare, too.

Can anybody help me out with this? Does somebody out there know a better way to search then google or aol?

Thanks,

Being from Australia, you will probably need to install them up-side down to get them work properly up here...as opposed to the "Land from Down Under".

Maybe I should of called you to translate. First off, tires are tyres, a trailer is a caravan, and a truck is a lorry. Ya, I was having fun. I sure hope those tires like american air. I hate to have to import air for them So, if I have problems with them on the way to Virginia, what do I call a tow truck??????????
