  1. I applaud this effort by Jayco and I’m probably wrong, but I believe Cooper (in name) is the only 100% American manufacturer of tires (whereas Goodyear and most others import most of their products), although Cooper does have a few private label imports.

    This link is quite interesting in finding the DOT code on a tire to determine city/country of origin:

  2. I so happy (LOL) that they decided to put Goodyear tires on there RV’s. I put a Goodyear Marathon on my travel trailer and it lasted 575 miles before I had a blow out. Back to Carlisle.s for me. Not problems in 60,000 miles and counting.

  3. So when will these new tires begin.
