I'm very curious to see if this is true. I'll take pics of my tires when I get home and post if those of us with TS trailers need to look out as well.

HF and TSS are both owned by the same parent company. They share many of the same products and vendors. What makes you think they'd be any different? Simply from the profit margins aspect, it's easier and cheaper for them to buy from one supplier in bulk.

Because they are two completely different trailers both in terms of their physical construction and payload capacity. There's literally nothing besides a holding company association that relates the two trailers.

Probably use the same purchasing agents and suppliers... like any good corporate entity would. Not to mention how easy it is to re-brand a tire... it's how China does business. One "brand" out the front door and a different one out the back. (I used to be an importer that bought from China, Taiwan, India and every once in a blue moon Japan)

They have doors? I always assumed they just built the production shack on the edge of a river and tossed the finished product out a hole in the wall onto a raft floating outside.

IIRC, the trailers that TS, Lowes and Home Depot sell are all sourced from the same Canadian company under different labels, each brand getting unique variants so you can't directly compare models between the stores.
