Never had them myself, but I have stopped to help others twice on the side of the road with most of a towmax tire spread all over the road behind them and damage to their rig.

The two that failed on my most recent trip say YES. They were less than three years old and had very few miles on them.

Many RV dealers are using them on new TT these days, along with an attractive price point, increasing the # of them on the road. Cant help but wonder if the statistics are influencing the number of reported problems.


When I go search the Big Name Tires, and look at customer feedback, I see similar types of feedback , where big name tires are blowing out as well.

I had 2 fail and a third with imminent failure in about a 75 mile stretch. I'm 110% done with TM. These tires were 3-I shears old, had about 7500mi, never saw 65mph, always covered in storage and always inflated to the correct pressure. My TireMinder prevented any damage.

Shouldn't question #2 read NO?

Interesting so far.

Of those with Tow Max, 71% have not had a problem.

1/3 or 33% of Tow Max Owners have had serious problems, and will never buy again.

I agree, interesting. At this point 50% say "no prob". Maybe I'm an old fart but no more TM's for me.

The poll does not ask the opinion of those who never had them and never will.
