Akuret tires

I have seen the other threads on these tires and being an engineer I probably think too much... I'm looking for logical opinions....

I have a 2013 Denali 246RK dry weight 6300# loaded maybe 7000# total.
I have these Akuret tires 225/75-15 load range D 2540# per tire. If I take off maybe 800# of tongue weight I would be at 6200# on the tires or about 1550# ea. or 61% of max load.

All you guys that have had issues have you been close to max and had failures or were you in a safe zone? I would hate to just junk these tires because of reading the threads then find I wasted $$ only to get some other China manufactured tires and now I'm back to where I started..
On a previous TT I have had Marathons fail but they were C rated and very close to max.

Thank you... Pete

You could go to LT truck tires in a load rage E. Size would be just a little different but there are LT215/70R-15 out there in load E. That would give you more peace of mind.

Re: Chinese tires. When I got my new 3600 home I immediately took off the brand new Chinese tires and replaced them (all 6 of them) with Michelin Ribs to the tune of $2100. That's what I think of any trailer tire made in China. Many threads on various RV forums on this topic.

Smart move. Good choice. If you've got the dough, do the deed. The life you save will be your own.
