My next door neighbor has a new Pinnacle that HAD Rainer tires. He made a round trip to AZ. When he got home all 4 tires were deformed. Lucky no blowout. He replaced them with Maxxis 8008. I have a new set of Goodyear Marathons on mine after 2 blowouts in 8 miles with Towmax. Going to sell the Goodyear and go to Maxxis. I would change those tires right away. Too much damage and safety problems to take a chance on the tires.

We bought a new 23RB with 15 inch Rainier's on it last month , before our first trip with it to the San Juans of Colorado I replaced the wheels and tires with 235/75R15 Generals . Will use the Chinaman tires on a couple of old utility trailers that hardly ever get used .

3,000 miles on mine before the first tire developed a large bubble on the inside of the tire. I don't understand how Jayco can justify putting something like this on trailers of this price range (80K). The tires are the foundation of the unit and I'm sure we would all be more than happy to give Jayco $300-$500 more for the peace of mind!!! Tires and the frame are not areas that any mfg should try to save money in my opinion. Jayco needs to listen to the customer more and worry a little less about cutting cost and competing with lower end units.

I left those tires at the dealership and put the first mile on the camper with G614s.

In my opinion, it's the Ford Pinto mentality. Until someone gets killed and/or the lawsuit costs exceed the cost savings they are enjoying by putting those rubber bands on their new trailers, nothing will change.

I'm about to pay for body work on my new 5th wheel that happened as a result of the blowout. Jayco dodges any responsibility and simply refers me to the Ranier warranty to replace the tire. I told them no thanks, I already have a good tire swing in the backyard.
