Power King Tires & Dynamic Tire Corp.

I beg you all to remove these inferior products from your expensive rigs. If you have followed this string thread for any length of time you certainly have come across some of my posts regarding this process of dealing with Dynamic Tire Corp out of Canada and their inferior Chinese made junk. I also blame Heartland for putting this junk on rigs we pay good money to purchase. Just not right that they put such JUNK on our rigs and then ask us to show off their product.
I just received word back today, after three weeks, from Dynamic Tire that after careful review?? I can only hope there so called experts have these tires on their rigs! Anyhow, they found it to be user error that caused the blow out. Yes, I agree, user error for not insisting that the dealer replace the inferior tires with something more reliable. That was my error! They stated that I must have ran the tires either over or under inflated thus causing the damage to my trailer. I dare them! I ck my tires before we leave from the campground to make sure they have 80 lbs of pressure as stated on the side of the tire. I don't enjoy sitting along side the road in 104 temps and changing a tire. I dare them! I strongly urge everyone that owns a rig that has Power King Tires on their rigs to write them and Heartland to let them know just how strong our group of owners can be. I dare them. Oh, they made a good faith effort by offering me $500.00 to sign a safe and harmless agreement. Hell that doesn't cover the $1400 in damages to the trailer and the $800 of new Michelin rubber I put on the rig, not even close. I'm not going to win this argument so I might as well take the $500 and be thankful I got that much out of them. I'm so angry right now I best stop or I will say something and this thread will not be submitted. Please let Dynamic Tire and Heartland know that we keep them in business by purchasing their product, that too could change it they don't change their practice of placing poor material on they're overly expensive rigs! Sorry for the length of this, but I just had to get it out of my system. We should all band together and get a lawyer to speak for us in these situations. Lawyers have to camp too don't they. Their must be a camping lawyer out there some place that would be willing to help us.I guess now we have to deal with Thor since they now own Heartland or so I've been informed. Well, let them know how strong we can be regarding their product line of RVs.

Part of the blame should be on ALL trailer manufacturers; for designing and building products with tires continually running at 90% to 100% of tire capacity. I forget where I read it, but somewhere I read that trailer manufacturers recommend replacing ST tires every 3 years. That's just plain ridiculous, when our Jeep's Michelin tires are over 8 years old with over 60,000 miles on them_so far. I credit that to running at ~65% of their rated capacity.

Tires will deteriorate faster when not rolling down the road. Sitting idle for weeks and months will actually shorten the time life span of the tire. The only way to know what tire pressure you should be using, is to weight the trailer (in this case) fully loaded (as you normally would) and go by the tire manufacturer tire pressure chart

I am replacing our tow max tires on our rig after 4 years. Just don't trust them and I check the inflation daily. Small price to pay for peace of mind. I've always wondered if, whoever takes the tires off, sells them used to some poor shmuck the way they sell used passenger vehicle Tires that are "slightly used"
