Commodore Tires

I have Commodore Steel belted radial, ST 215/75R14, load range C tires on my Casita. I'm pretty sure the tires are new. However I can not find out any thing about the tires. I have been told that they were made by Goodyear. Today I spoke to a Goodyear dealer and he stated that he had never heard of the Commodore tires. I need to know if these tires were made in China, because if they are they are coming off, new or not. Thanks Tom

My recent research on trailer tires before a purchase revealed that all trailer tires with a few exceptions are made in China, including Goodyear.

Kumho are made in Korea and Maxxis are made in Thailand.

I went with the Maxxis M8008 radials ST175-80R 13 Load range C they seem to have the most positive reveiws.

Only pulled them a few hundred miles on a Trillium 1300 but they seemed just fine.

Check the "born on date" to determine the manufactured date of the tires. Tires start aging from that date, not the date mounted on rims and on the trailer.

You'll find the numbers in an oval stamped on the tire.

Look for some numbers after the tire identification number. The first two numbers are the week the tire was manufactures. The next number, if single is the year in the 90s, If double its the year in the 2000s.

For example:

011 would mean the tire was made in the 1st week (01) of 1991 (1).

279 would mean the tire was made in the 27th week of 1999.

2706 would mean the tire was made in the 27th week of 2006.

Sorry I can't help with the trailer brand, but if the tires are fresh, I'd run them for a while and see how they work out, YMMV

Where? Who? Maybe I'm blind... I don't see it. The link Dave provided gives this info:

"In addition we offer our own private branded tires which we have total control over marketing and development - Americus, Commodore, Concours, Crop-Max, KONA– STR, Nutech, Swamp-witch, West-AG. "

Oh, now I understand Tom. If the post was political, the moderators are discussing it out of view from the membership .... and they should. What keeps this forum friendly is the lack of politics, religion, etc.
