RV Tire Safety
with RV tire expert Roger Marble
Here is a very good 10-minute video from a number of different companies on how modern radials tires are “built,” how some of the material is processed, tires are cured, handled in the warehouse and even how some retreads are made.
There isn’t a tire plant worker in the world (China, Europe, or the U.S.) that would not recognize what the equipment is doing.
Yes, the machines are painted different colors and the robotic handling of the tires is done with different equipment, but the end result is almost identical.
This uniformity in the process is why I have so much difficulty in accepting the idea that because a tire is built in one country, it is automatically more likely to fail than when it is made in another country.
