Linglon Tires? Really?

Looking at a DP that has real recent tires, but they're Linglon. Never heard of them. Obviously Chinese, but an internet search gives 2 sides to the quality issue. I can only assume the owner went with these 'cause they're cheaper. So that makes me think what else has been done cheaply on this MH. Anyone run these tires?

We are seeing more and more Chinese tires as the cost of main stream tires has skyrocketed. Even semi trucks are using some Chinese brand tires with good results. I have not heard of Linglon, but there are several others that have great reviews. The problem is when they come apart they can cause a great deal of damage. I'd suggest a compromise with replacing the steer tires with a known brand.

If I'm selling a coach and it needs tires, I'm going with a cheap set. The same guy who complains about cheap tires will also complain that the coach price is too high because of expensive new tires.

No matter how much people complain about quality, very few are willing to pay for it. It's a no win situation when selling a coach. The reality is......most will see new tires and not question what brand they are.

Chinese tires are big in the pull behind and 5th wheel trailer markets...that's why they have so many problems with blow outs. Don't hear about much Chinese tires on MHs...and don't hear about near as many tire problems.

I would think Toyos just wouldn't have cost much more, but I understand the cheap fix to sell. I think I would pass on those tires. A couple weeks ago we were on the way to the SoCal desert, and in the rest stop on 99 was a gorgeous DP up on the hook. The left front shredded, and took the Alcoa wheel, the fender, internals, the front hatch, probably a bunch of wiring. I can't imagine the cost for that repair. Wish I'd been able to see the brand and the date on that tire.

I blew out more than one Goodyear G670 until I removed them. I'm not sure the Chinese stuff could be any worse.

I have them on my duals two years now no problem.Bought them originally because they were what was available at the time for the size and the Goodyears I had on had split in two.
A lot of truckers use them. Dealer recommended to not use them on the front as they do not balance very well. I have beads in them and have not noticed a balance problem.

It doesn't take much to beat a Goodyear truck tire!

You probably haven't heard much about Linglon tires because that is not the name of the company. It is Linglong. Kinda like people referring to their Cummin's engines as Cummings (sic).

I am sure that putting the G at the end of Linglon is good, the G stands for "good" and what more proof could a guy need than that?
