Angry Rainer 16"Tires

Just wondering if anyone else out there has had problems with the Rainer Tires that come on the Jayco Pinnacle 5th wheels.... Mine isn't 8 months old less than 2500 miles ... And 2 tires formed bubbles ...

Contacted Jayco and wanted to replace all of them because we don't fill confident going on trips with them ... I did on my own ... Got rid of the China tires and bought 4 Goodyear614 for the safety of my family!

You did the right thing! Ours had bubbles the first trip less than 175 miles from home. Replaced them with 17.5 Sailuns and new rims too. Original rims only rated for 80 psi.

Did you attempt a warranty claim on those tires with such low usage?

Yes they were warrantied but Jayco replaced them with Rainiers so I replaced them myself and sold the Rainiers to a farmer to use on his wagons.

Rainer 16" tires

Smart to switch them out. I also replaced all four new tires after I had a blowout on the second day of my first road trip with my new fiver. (Perfect 80 lbs pressure, 65 mph cruise control & under load limit). I was kicking myself because I had read about folks' issues but I thought "Surely they will last one trip!" WRONG! Took out some fender trim pieces when it happened too. Jayco just sent me to the Rainer warranty to get the tire replaced (which I don't want those tires again!) and refused to help on the body damage. I feel like Jayco is knowingly putting new customers on the road with the bare minimal rubber that simply won't handle the real world of these rigs.

Love the trailer overall but the tires are the weak link!

Sorry to hear about your issues. I have the Rainer 15's at just 12 months old. We just towed it from the Badlands to Orlando in 3 days with fairly high temperatures and I watched the tires and tire pressure like a hawk on the way down, fortunately no bubbles and no noticeable pressure variance between the tires. Based on some other previous post on here, I was honestly expecting problems. We kept it at 64,65 on cruise, never exceeded the max speed tolerance. Let me tell you, that was rough thru South Dakota with a speed limit of 80, killed our time. I would never tow a trailer that high, but 70 would be nice when your chewing off that many miles in 1 day.

I have over 4k on my 28BHBE in one season, no problems thus far. Keep in mind, they might be made in China but Jayco bought them and put them on your trailer!

I think that is the point of the discussion. After all, they have to get them off the factory floor and to the dealer somehow.
