Anybody have any experience with these tires? My soon-to-be Jayco hybrid will need two 14" tires.

I'm not a Sam's Club memeber (yet) but am considering joining. On their website, it shows these tires as "online only" with free shipping. Will Sam's mount and balance these tires? Any idea how much they would charge? I plan to get pricing from some local tire stores as well and wanted to have a Sam's Club price to compare to.

Thanks!

Call Sam's Club and ask them. You'd have an answer by now.

The Greenball Transmasters have a pretty good reputation. I used them for 4 years without issue.

But then again, I didn't hit any curbs or go past 60mph.

I had Transmaster II on my last trailer when I bought it and ended up replacing them half way thru a cross country trip with very few miles on them.

On my previous trailer we had a great set of Greenball tires. They held pressure and stayed together for 400 total miles before taking out half of the side of my rig. Greenball was such a stand up company that they didn't even say ha-ha when they denied the claim for damages.

I have had good luck with them. But for every good report you get about them you will get a bad one from someone else. So flip a coin.

Moderator note:
I have deleted several posts from this thread for being off topic. The OP asked about Greenball tires and not Maxxis. Please refrain from recommending other brands and stick to the topic of this thread.
Thank you.

Sounds like a booooring trip...LOL

Greenball tires are made in China and the market under several brands, the most popular being TowMaster. So if you get a price at Sam's check your local tire guy and see what he can get you TowMasters for, it's the same tire.

Kidding aside, there is LOT of truth in what CKNSLS says...I would add get weighed to be sure you are overloaded, I had several good years of service from my ToweMasters until I found out that ST tires are only rated for 65mph....
