Default Towmax trailer tires??

Have marathons on the trailer now, and they wore funny, might not be the tires fault(had some brake issues with the calipers dragging, may have caused uneven wear?), but with them now being made in China, I am not going there, if i am going with a china product, I was thinking of trying something different. What I can get local in radial for 14" rims(I dont want to change rims), are Carlisles(Yuck), USA trail(which i believe is a rebranded carlisle), and Towmax, from what i have read on other forums(RV's) is that people have had good luck with the towmax. Anyone here have any experience with them?

Maxxis is also supposed to be a good replacement for Marathons. That is what I am going with. Discount Tire carries them.

I run towmaxx on my triple axle and tow at speeds 65-75 mph for 2+ hrs. No problems at all I would recommend

Sounds good, not much high speed towing, only the turnpike when I go to the keys a few times a year, and Alligator alley heading to Fort myers, but both of those places I would not want a blowout.

FWIW, I've had good luck towing with Maxxis and Hi-Run trailer tires for a while now.
