There is a huge profit for anyone involved in providing OE tires for all concerned except the purchaser.
Time will tell but as others noted, I will not be a test dummy.

We have the Rainier tires on our 2015 Pinnacle. We drove the Pinnacle from Indiana to Florida to home in San Diego. Then I noticed a huge bubble on the outside of the tire near the rim. We changed the tire, drove it to our dealer for some warranty work. When we pick up the Pinnacle in a couple weeks, we are driving it 5 miles to the tire store and replacing those tires immediately. Not worth the risk!

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.

Ranier and Knots/Bubbles

I've been browsing the threads looking for info on the tires on my Northpoint we bought in Feb 2016. They are (were) Ranier ST 235/R16s.
We were about to leave on a 3 wk trip and were picking up our RV after an awning repair when the tech noted our first bubble. Trekked quickly a mile down the road and got it replaced. When it was off we noticed two bubbles both inside and outside, near the rim. Clearly a defect.
A week later in N Carolina after leaving our 2nd site a guy (angel) in a pickup flagged us down. He said he saw a knit/bulge on inside of front passenger side RV tire...how way up under there he saw it I don't know. After taking it off, yes there were two bubbles/knots in inside. One size of softball.
Replaced all three remaining Ranier tires.
Anyone know how to get any compensation from defective tires? I kept the two defectives.

Contact him. They are the supplier to every RV company in the US. I had the exact same problem with my 2015 Jayco Pinnacle. They were excellent to deal with. You will need to fill out a claim form and they will want pictures. They replaced all 4 on mine with Goodyear Marathons and sent me a check for reimbursement for mounting. DO NOT go thorough Jayco, absolutely useless.

We just took delivery of our 2nd jayco Saturday. It is TT and came with 225/75r/15 Ranier tires. I had just replaced tires on our old camper so I had my new ones switched to the new camper. Both tires were same specs. Load range E. My Carlisle radial trail HD tires felt heavier and were more resistant to being mounted to rims. I am glad I kept my new tires. Camper dealer let me bring new camper home and get everything switched over to new camper then bring our trade to them when done. Its nice dealing with hometown dealer.

I had 4 Maxxis on my trailer. They were now about 4 years old, and had more than 32k miles on them. However, the tread was still very good. Unfortunately the belts broke in one of them. Fortunately, I found it before it came apart on the highway. I made an emergency pit stop to use the facilities on my trailer. (Isn't having your motel room with you wonderful?) Luckily, the bad part of the tire was facing forward and the parking lot was covered in a fine white dust. The middle 1/3 of the tire was buldged out and that caught my eye. Another 1/4 turn forward and I would not have seen it.

Even Maxxis aren't 100% perfect.
