Run do not walk away from anybody trying to sell you those tires. Just another China bomb waiting to destroy your trailer

Do a Search here on "towmax". This will get you 10 Threads about them, the damage they cause and the the number of members who have had failures with them. While reading these 10 Threads watch to see how many replaced with Sailuns.

Do not buy (or even take for free) a Towmax tire. Buy Sailuns!

These China bomb Tire threads go on forever keep coming.

I think there needs to be a sticky with a list of tires not to buy and run on your camper

I would say the best is quite affordable. The Sailun s637. At around $130 (what a paid) 3 years ago. Compared to the Goodyear g614 at $ 350 + apiece

Even the "H" rated GY G114 can explode. Happened to us on a 4 1/2 year old tire. Now running the "H" rated Sailuns.
