    I am not familiar with the Freestar brandname but check where they are made. If they are made in China it is probably only a matter of time before you join the club the rest of us are in and that is the "It went boom" club. I think most of us have replaced the China Bombs with the Goodyear G 614 tires.

    The major problem with the cheap import "china bombs" vs "G614 RST" is about 22 lbs/tire, "G614 RST" weighed 58 lbs and the Trail America "G's" only 36 lbs. The cheap tires do not have the material needed for strength.

    $271 is a fair price. I paid $265 for my first set of 614's and then when I was on the road and had to replace one it cost $381. Luckly the trucking company paid for it due to their dropping debris that ruined the tire. (Discount tire is not always the cheapest.)

    Shop around for the G614's, You may find them for around $235 mounted and balanced. Costco? http://www.trailertiresandwheels.com.../product/RG614

    After reading this thread I got on the web site link Forrest provided and the G 614 tires are on sale for $218. I ordered four for our 09 3600 RL. Been down this road with SOB trailer - two blow outs, one tread separation, one tread deterioration (chunks missing) and one starting to go, body work to both sides of the trailer, propane lines torn out, etc. I've only pulled the trailer from the dealer to the RV campground where we live and I'm not taking the chance. Will change out the tires as soon as they arrive.

    Anybody want to buy a set of almost new Freestar tires?
