 We bought a 2009 four winds travel trailer in may of 2009, we have approximately 3000 miles on the trailer and equipment associated with the trailer. as i was getting the trailer ready for this year, we noticed that all four tires were weather checked, or the sidewalls on all four tires were cracked badly. i called the dealer we bought the trailer from and he told me that i wasn't alone, in fact he had a brand new 2009 four winds trailer that hadn't left the lot, and all four of it's tires were side wall cracked badly. i ordered four new tired from a tire dealer near our home, and the attendant told me hte has already replaced several trailers tires that were weather checked also on brand new, or 2009 models. the tire i have are: duro h78-15st............st225/75d15. the cost of replacing the tires will be $485.00. in a bigger area i could understand a few trailers having issues, but i live in a town that has less then 1000 people living in it...even the greater area...marinette, peshtigo, crivitz, and include menominee, mi, and i'm sure you can see my concern. i am very safety minded, and would have been very distraught if my trailer would have crashed and killed somebody...especially my grandchildren. please look into this problem. i was also told by the nks tire people that they were pretty sure the same tire company, duro, had a major recall on their tires maybe two years back. thank you for your time, and effort concerning this matter. if i can be of any further assistance, please feel free to call on me. *tr
