Steer Tires made in China?

I have been reading threads about tires the last couple of days. For some reason I have thought I had Continentals all round on my Southwind. I walked by the MH a few minutes ago and noticed the tires are Dynatrac. Looked a little closer and they were made 1407. AND they are Made in China. What da heck???

We've had the Southwind a year and all this time I thought Continentals? All the times I checked tire pressure and I never noticed? And I have a driver license? The rear tires ARE Continentals.

I've had no problems with the Dynatrac's. They haven't lost pressure. They ride and drive just fine. But I've heard a few horror stories about Chinese made tires and seen how some Chinese made camping trailer tires have come apart (don't know why.). Now (yeah, now) I'm a little concerned about the safety of my steer tires.

Anyone have experience with these Made in China Dynatrac tires on a motorhome?

Dynatrac is a Double Coin brand. Double Coin, while Chinese, is a good quality tire and have a good reputation around the world. In fact, they use to make Michelin Truck tires for sale around the world, and I hear, are about to again.
