Cannot comment on Samson tires,but General makes a good steer tire for a decent price. Run Michelin and Bridgestones in the past and tried a set of Generals for the price. They wore even and steered really well.

I used Samson tires back in the 70's on class eight tractor trailers. They wore like iron. They were made in Israel then. Believe they were off brand of Goodrich or General. Better get used to "made in China" on more tires.......

The dealer quoted me $265 less per tire for the Samson's, over the Good Year's.

I see them regularly on trucks...honestly, I would probably give them a try, especially at an $1800 savings!

I installed 8 Samson tires on my class A three months ago and have put on just over 7K and have had zero problems with them. I replaced Goodyear tires with them and the ride and handling is just as good. I would say, give them a try. I don't think you will be sorry.

Yes, Goodyear North America has tire plants in Danville, Virgina and Fayetteville, North Carolina and Lawton, Oklahoma and Topeka, Kansas! Michelin, Goodyear and Bridgestone (purchased a Firestone plant in Tennesee) all have plants in the U.S. and make tires with the best sidewalls! I got this info off a Bandtag website that does recapping and the 3 tire companies that I mentioned are the only tires that they will recap!

I two have hauled trailers with Sampson Tires over the years. The Port of Seattle and Port of Tacoma used to buy them to put on there cans! They buy the cheapest tire that are on the market! You might of seen some of laying along the road (I-5) between Seattle and Tacoma.
