Duro Trailer Tires Good For 1 Year Max

Look on the web. You'll see countless stories of these tires dry rotting prematurely. They start warranty from date of manufacture and then make it seem as if they are doing you a favor by offering you new tires at 50% off full retail. They are a manufacturer which means you are actually paying 2/3+ the cost. If you do not accept you get stonewalled.

Keystone is still using these tires and they are no help at all either. If you have a problem contact your dealer, Keystone and Duro. This is a lesson I am slowly learning Buy American not import tires. Both the manufacturer in Taiwan and the distributor in Ga. are in it for the quick buck.

Duro tires
by: Anonymous

Bought a new fifth wheel last year put 5000kms on it Saw a lot of cracks in the sidewalls of all tires Was told tires need replacing. Cannot find a Duro tire dealer anywhere I live in Canada This really sucks.

Duro Or Any Make Of Tire
by: Anonymous

I bought a 2010 new 35foot OpenRange fifthwheel with 16" Duro E tires.The tires are never covered & i winter it outside. Have towed it from Pa. to Washington State & all over 27 states to date. Carry 80 psi in them all the time. I try to maintain a safety net of 600 pounds under my GVWR. Have 0ver 15 thousand miles on them, as they show little wear.

Never had a flat or more then 4pound air loss. I'm convinced that, other then hitting road objects,90% of tire failures are from under inflation or overload & 10% from defects. You must use a good air gage, as i found cheap ones can be way off over 10-15 psi. ALL tires are built with safety ratings just as bridge weight ratings. Hitting a curve or pot hole can cause bubbles, constant force or twisting to back a trailer in can cause side wall failure. I could go on and on, bottom line: correct inflation will take you a long way with any make of tire.

Duro trailer Tires on camper.
by: richard

UPSET
I bought new trail-lite trail cruiser new in 2009.

This spring had to replace all 4 tires as they were cracked all the way around and were rotting.

The tire tread has been measured by a tire dealer locally and there is still 90 % tread left. [still tires have rotted & crcked].

While trailer was stored for the winter, the tires were covered to protect them. Also while camping for longer periods they were covered to protect them from the sun. Still the tires went bad. Total cost to replace all 4 tires approx.$450.00. GOOD DEAL FOR SOMEONE NOT ME.

Tried to contact manufaturer re problem, told no warranty because I live in Canada.
SUCKS TO BE ME. LOVE THE CAMPER HATE THE TIRES.
CHOW.
