I think these are less than a year old and look like this.Probably does not help that they have 35 lbs air in them.Would love to foam fill them but they lose the crown when deflated and foam filling does not pressurize them to take out the crown.Who makes a good tire these days?

That those Chinese Kenja's or whatever it is?  Kendra, Kenda?   I've heard the rubber doesn't hold up on those. I have bought many Deestones, made in Thaisland, and never had a set long enough to know if they hold up. They seem better quality than others mentioned.  Carlisle still makes small tires, but even those are foreign made now I think.  Goodyear has been out of ag/lawn for long time, Firestone I don't think into small ones now. Armstrong  and others were taking up some of major brands sizes and types, but not sure if they are around anymore either. Titan was another, but don't see anymore.  Fellas out West selling some sort of European brand, have no idea what is offered and prices tho.

Wow! Those didn't last, but that 35 PSI probably didn't help!

I don't know, people say I have more than 35 pounds of air pressure in me and I've lasted 52 years so far.

I feel the need to decompress at times too!

 They are the steer tires on the back of my forklift and it gets a little difficult to steer with less pressure.

We will skid steer tires with this stuff that is rock hard. I don't exactly know what it is. The tire company fills them. The rubber peels off and you can run on the fill just about.

These import tires are worthless.

I don't know where you can buy quality rubber these days.

That is why I wished they were foam filled but they really shrivel up when the air is left out of them.

That sounds like foam rubber unless there is something else out there that I don't know about.

   My first thought would be if you are using them on a fork truck you need to get a set of tires rated for that load type.  that's most likely what killed those tires.

That might be the case but 4 pr was all that was available when I bought this set and they are rated for 22 psi.I found this no name with a 10 pr.So is it a 10 pr or does it just say 10 pr.
