Akuret Tires AGAINNNNN

Some may remember I had a blowout with my Akuret tires last fall. It was July. My voltage was less than a month out of Factory warranty. When I contacted the distributor I got the run a round but they wanted pictures etc. Many calls later as they customer service was terrible I was pushed off to the factory. I talked to a pleasant lady there who was very nice and efficient. The factory took a while to make a decision but finally did after wanting more pictures and documentation. Today I got a check for a tire. They sent the remainder of the money to the repair facility. I tried to have them make the check out to me but they said no. It was their policy to pay the repair facility only.. Strange

At least I got paid for the damage and repairs and the factory was pleasant to deal with.

I suppose the moral of the story is be persistent and dont give up if your tires fail.

How much longer are you going to keep those lousy Chinese tires?

I haven't hear anything bad about Maxxis. Good choice.

I had a blowout with one of my Akuret tires this weekend. As usual, I checked the air pressure before I departed and all 6 tires were at 78 psi. I am now worried about these tires since the trailer is a 3895 Voltage purchased in June of 2013. Not many miles on these tires!!

Dutchman must have changed tire suppliers along the way...
My 2014 3895 Voltage manufactured in October 2013 has
Westlake tires.

I'm interested to hear if anyone has had
problems with the Westlake tires.

MY V3605 built 12/13 also came with Westlakes. I moved those over to my Teton & moved the 17.5" to the Voltage this past weekend.

Maybe they keep changing the names due to lawsuits? Just an uneducated guess!

Tires are spit out of the Asian factories by the millions. If you do a search for the factory codes you can find where your tires are made.

My curiosity got me looking, as I saw several tires that had the same tread pattern, but different names. When I found the factory codes and checked the plant where the tires were manufactured, they all came from the same plant.

Interesting to see where "North American" brands are made.

I was at Camping World in Nampa ID last weekend, wandered through the sales lot and was amazed how many new rigs, all different brands, were shoed with Westlakes. Must be the popper of choice these days
