    :mad2: I love it when they dump garbage on the market.

    I bought a new Haulmark Trailer in July 2009. Two weeks later the trailer was shaking the 2500 HD truck. Sure the trailer was an 2008, but the tires were made in 2006. :eek:

    All 4 tires had separated including the spare that never was run!

    I had to buy 4 new tires as the dealer didn't have the 16" tires in stock.

    I have been unable to get HaulMark or Sutong CTR tire distributor to reimburse me or provide a set of replacement tires since. 6 Months.

    If you are looking a a trailer equipped with Hi-run tires Insist they change it to another tire brand or figure the cost to replace them. Even Akret Chinese tires I got are better! (Wore them out with out separation.)

    Pic 1 is the center tread higher than the shoulder tread.

    That is dangerous.

    Good luck in getting them to make things right. I would think that the dealer would act on your behalf from a products warranty standpoint.

    THAT'S damn scary! The Haulmark dealer ought to own up and do what's right even if they're not getting satisfaction out of the manufacturer.

    Maybe file a report @ NTSB website at least get the word out to others there is a risk, did you get the s/n off the tires, possibly a bad batch production lot issue.

    Finally.

    Check arrived from Haulmark reimbursing me for the defective tires and mounting/balance cost.

    I bought a new 5th-wheel RV with TowMaster load range D tires (made in China). Had problems with 3 out of the 4 tires. One had a bubble on the sidewall and the other 2 had their belts separate from the tread. Replaced them with same manufacturer's load range E, went on a 8000 mile trip and blew 3 out of the 4 tires during the trip. The tread came off as if they were re-treads. Which they were not.
