Question Good Tire or Not? Made in China.

My 2011 Gulf stream Travel Trailer came with tires made in China and wondering if this is a good tire? Hi-Run ST205/75R15 and more writing on the tires is JK42.

Thanks, Bob

I had a set of HI-RUN's on a small enclosed trailer. They were great. Trailer ran at gross weight always at freeway speed. Wish all of my tires ran that cool.

We still have many friends from our 5th wheel towing days. Many have had problems (including us) with Chinese tires on heavier trailers. Maybe you'll have better luck with the smaller tire and lighter trailer...but I'd watch them very closely.
