My husband and I purchased an new 2012 Zinger 25SB in August 2011. We are very happy with our trailer until now. We just recently noticed that all 4 tires on the trailer are from 2009 and have cracks around the outside of the tire. The only decent tire is the spare which is a radial and the others are not. Has anyone else had this problem? We already have experienced a flat tire. Any help would be appreciated.

stella2662, I would contact CrossRoads by phone and advise them of thesituation. I believe it would be in their best interest and yours to replace your tires.

I would suspect that a dealer traded out the tires and put the tires that came on your unit on a used unit to make a sale. I would go back to the dealer a ask what gives...

If what others say is true, then this borders on fraud...I would not stand for this at all...Crossroads may be a good company, but they cannot control all that sell their product. Get some answers and quickly.

;t to agree with Frank. Used tires were put on your unit. And yes, it is fraud. There was no disclosure from the dealer. Go to the dealer first and ask, politely, why you have old tires on a new unit. If they hesitate I would contact your state's attorney general's fraud division.

How could you ever prove the tires were changed at the dealer ? it would be impossible, and even if they were the selling dealer is sure not going to admit to it...the tires may have been sitting in the bottom of the pile at the warehouse and somebody spotted them and thru them in the truck that went to the plant...you sure can't expect crossroads to look at serial numbers on tires, they buy a load and install them, alot of people have had their hands on that load of tires before you or crossroads got them and to blame anybody without and proof is a really bad choice....in reality if crossroads decides to replace them they will do it to make you happy, they do not nor have they ever warranted any tires, the manufacture of the tires does not even warrant them, the wholesaler who sold the tires to crossroads does the warranty work and then the manufactuer rebates the wholesaler...good luck

On another forum they did a survey on when your unit was built, and the date that the tires were manufacture. The vast majority including mine was a month. If I recall right thelongest period of time was three months
