We bought some trailers at work that had some Double Coin tires on them when they came in. I liked them and bought some steer tires for the Tractor and took the truck in to get them aligned. The guy doing the alignment said they were cheap tires but 3 yrs later we are still running the same tires on the trailer and they still have tread on them within limits. I like them but with that being said the trailer does have the air system on it that keeps them at the proper pressure regardless if there is a nail in them or not. Proper inflation is the life of any tire.

Update... just had to air up my double coins for the first time since I put them on. I run them at 100 psi. they had gone down to 90-92. 3 years and only 10 psi loss.. probably should have aired sooner, but got lazy after the first year with no discernable loss and pretty much quit checking on a regular basis... tires still look good, nochecking or cracking.. I will buy them again when the time comes.

Check Toyo, Cooper, Dayton, even Kumho or Hankook before DC. again my opinion. And "I" would not have DC on the front.
Not sue Tom where you got your info regarding DC tires. We had a set put on our previous coach and found them to be very good. Great ride comfort and never lost air pressure. Yes, they are made in China but so are many other brands. And I also understand several major truck companies run Double Coins.
