Jay flight, do you know the date code on the tires? What I read is 3-5 yr from mfg is the "change it now" mark. Haven't read of a TT tire failing due to tread wear.

I inquired, a LOT about the Rainier tires on our Jayco, with Tredit Tire & Wheel. Several emails into it, Tredit pretty much couldn't say much more than they didn't have a lot of real world test data to provide as they were very new. Tredit owns the mold, or patent to it yada yada, manf in china and on the story goes. In other words, we're the ones testing the tires, in the real world. I have a thread somewhere on here on those tires.

Jayflight Swift, there are plenty of threads on TT tire inadequacies. My takeaway: get quality tire (only one or two quality ST rated manufacturers), go up in capability (size and/or load range). A more capable tire means less heat build-up, no blow out. I suggest a TPMS - no tire is puncture proof, lots of junk on the road.

I have had Goodyear Marathons 2 times and Maxxis once on my boat trailer, its a 26' weighing at 5000lbs, and hated them both, Goodyears dry rotted both times after 1 year, Maxxis lasted 2 years, we tow a lot during the summer months, pretty much every weekend, I have had Towmax on my boat trailer now for the 5th season and very happy, I also have Towmax on our 2014 Eagle, but we don't tow it, it sits on our land, our old trailer sat for 10 years on our lot, which had Goodyear marathons and they were like new when we traded it in, The one thing I figured is, when I had Marathons on my boat trailer, it was stored in a building with a concrete floor, tires only lasted 1 season, camper sat 10 years on class 5 gravel, looked like new after 10 years, so as of now I have been happy with the Towmax tires.

I noticed the diff tires too at a show.
Makes ya wonder if RV manufactures get enuff complaints that they just seek out another cheap tire Co!
Why not just put a better over rated tire on in the first place/
Oh! never mind I forgot that they get to keep the dealers into repair work and sell more parts due to Trailer damage! ha ha!

This thread is making me nervous. I have the Tow Max King ST 205/75R15 on our new 2015 24 FBS. We picked it up this past September. We are driving to South Dakota in August and I am very concerned about these tires. C load tires is what really makes me nervous. My DW will kill me if I tell her I want to upgrade the tires . Maybe i'm worrying too much.

I did however have the tires balanced when we got it home. I took the tires to Discount Tire. They didn't charge me a dime. I was really suprised.

In case anybody is curious on the Rainier, which seems to be what some Jayco's come with now, here's a thread on them, and below the link is Tredit's reply to one of a few emails.

John,

The Rainier tire is a tire specific to Tredit, manufactured by a company called Wanda in China. We own the rights to the mold, so anyone with a Rainier tire got it from Tredit originally.


As for the speed rating, they are indeed 65mph. The reason you won’t find any reviews online quite yet is that the tire has been distributed for under a year so the “real-time” test data from consumers haven’t been reported yet. From my end I have seen few issues with the tire, and of those even less were true manufacturer defects.

Camping Couple: I just finished a 2100 mile round trip to FL with mine, and I have the exact same tires and size as you. I will admit that I did think about it, but in the end they performed perfect.

I would check the date of manufacture on side of tires.From what I understand manufacturers state that Trailer tires should be replaced about every 3 years.
On my 2011 the date on tires were 5/2009. So it depends how they pull off shelve too!
Not to worry you only to inform you.

Now go have fun
