I had an older MH that I didn't want to put much money in. Installed 6 Samsons and drove the MH 3 thousand miles through 100 degree heat with zero problems. I gave the MH to a relative and it is being used regularly with no problems. They rode a bit rough but I can't bad mouth them and I really dislike buying Chinese.

Try looking at Hankook tires. I love mine! And yes they are made in Asia! Yoy really think your Goodyears are made in the USA?
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!


No, THAT IS WRONG! I have OWNED a Bandag on a Hankook casing! I have also seen them on Dunlop, Yokohama, BFG, Firestone, Doublecoin, and Kelly casings.

I replaced all of mine with Samsons. They are a fine quality tire. I even had my tru-balanced. I cannot see the justification in buying the Michelins. I researched the web before I purchased and found nothing negative about these tires. I had a difficult time finding any negative comments from people actually running them.

Good Luck with your Sampson tires! E-bay had 6 Sampsons for under $1,000.00 didn't say what the DOT Date codes were are what the sidewall ratings were. I have the same justification as you but reverse! To each his own!

It looks like Ebay has a pretty good deal on those Samsons. JRooster makes a good point though. Make sure before you buy them to check the date codes and sidewall ratings.
