I wish they still did that. But they would still be light on load range IMHO.

Twomax Powerking. They are dated mid-2012, trailer built in Dec 2012, we bought it in May of 2013. So the tires are 3 years old.

All you can do is read up on line and ask others how they held up. I have never heard of them.

Goodyear Marathons Load Range E. The dealer agreed to swap the almost new Goodyear G614 Load Range G tires and wheels from my 2008 Designer. Liked the look of the newer wheels but feel much better with the G rated tires. The Pinnacle is over 15,000 fully loaded.

Mine say Power Towing Grand Ride. I'm sure are Chinese. 205/75/14 load range C.
One thing I don't like about the White Hawks are the 14" tires instead of the 15" on the Jay Flights. Guess to keep a low as possible profile. Will. Get Maxxis load range D
when I replace these. They look fine with about 1K miles on. They should!

My Designer came with Marathon load range E tires. I changed to G614's a few months before they were 4 years old. As has previously been said "the Marathons look fine", but then we all know looks doesn't matter. You can't see the internal issues that they develop as they age.

Our Pinnacle came with Goodyear "E" Marathons.

We had it weighted, it was 15,700 lbs., I thought a bit much for an "E" Rated tire so I sold them and got Saliun "G" Rated.

The Sailun's were great, last spring we made a 10,000 mile trip South to North, East Coast to West Coast and back, no tire problems at all !!!

Traded the Pinnacle in July, new SOB 5th Wheel came with Goodyear G614's.
