We just got back from a trip to Florida, then Myrtle beach with our new 2015 Pinnacle. Spent 8 miles on I-95 in NC before cutting over to 81 and of course we picked up a nail. Mine came with the Rainiers as well.

Changed to the spare and continued to a TA to get the flat taken care of.

The service tech suggested replacing the tire due to bubbles that had formed on the inside of the Rainier. He said he does a lot of tires and this usually indicates a defect. I kept the tire in hopes of getting something done under warranty but with a no name tire I am not too optimistic.

This along with other issues with my rolling lemon have me seriously considering switching brands on my next RV upgrade. Jayco has certainly slipped in a number of QC areas, this just adds to the list.

I would let the Jayco folks know about the bubbles irregardless of any warranty that is due. From what I am reading there are some who are still riding on these tires. Not only dangerous but could damage your RV if they go out on you. Just saying.

Tredit is the manufacture of the TowMaxx tire on the older Jayco's. We have replaced all of them as we had one with a bubble in it in Calif. Changed it out. Then we had one blow in Kansas. Did damage to the lower part of our short slide (driver's side), which we are now having to repair. Call Jayco, they will give you the number to call for the tire warranty. When we took off the remaining TowMaxx tires, we found they were separating on the inside also. Could very easily have had another blow out.

I have been in contact with Tredit regarding their Rainier ST tires. If anyone needs a contact name and email address, let me know in a private message and I will give you his name and contact information.

We have 3600 miles on our 2015 pinnical Rainer tires plus what ever they put on it to get it to the dealer not very happy knowing that so many problem with these tires and others that jayco are using will be watching closely and changing after this season unless a bubble or thread separation starts . I find it very upsetting that with what they cost they would go cheap on such an important item.

On a side note, do semi drivers driving the Indiana Toll Way have a suicide wish or something? I cannot believe how close they drive to each other at 70+ miles per hour. So close are some, a car can not get between them.

I consider myself a professional driver of sorts but their antics had me seek a saner route heading east. I like U.S. 30 in Illinois and Indiana!

They think they are NASCAR drivers and are drafting each other...
