Ours came with the Power King Towmax. I put a set on our previous TT and had no issues. So far so good for us with this brand.

I didn't change my Towmax tires because they are bad tires, I have no idea about that. I changed them because they were not load rated for the weight of the trailer. I don't subtract tongue weight in my equation due to dynamics involved in going down the road. If the world was flat without bumps then I would subtract hitch weight, but it's not.

Our 2014 38FLFS Pinnacle came with Powerking Towmax ST235-16 Load Range E tires. It was purchased new July 2013. Always kept tires covered and checked air pressure and maintained at 80 psi before beginning any travel. Was 25 miles into trip when right rear blew. Stopped and found left rear had huge bulge and was un drive able. They had 3600 miles on them. Replaced all 5 tires.

Rainier ST by Treddit. I get to be one of the guinea pigs and test the newest brand of RV tires.

My Designer came with Marathons and after just shy of 3 years and 2,887 miles on them (not counting the trip from the factory to my dealer), I chickened out and replaced them with G114's. Fortunately my wheels are rated for 110 psi so I didn't have to get new wheels. If new wheels had been needed I would have gone to 17.5" wheels/tires.

Do you mean G614's?

We just ordered a new Whitehawk 27DSRL. I didn't want cheap Chinese tires on it. So when I orderd the trailer I asked the dealer to remove the OEM tires and put on Hankook D-rated tires instead. Even though Hankooks are made in Korea, they are one of the worlds best tire companies and I have used them in competitive driving on our Corvette with complete confidence. Since our trailer hasn't arrived yet I don't know how these will perform. But I expect them to be as good as the other Hankooks I have used.
