Towmax Power King Tires

Greetings my peeps.

We just bought a new 5th wheel camper and are scheduled to pick it up in about 2 weeks. The GVWR on the camper is 15500 and dry weight is 12k+.

The camper has Towmax Power King tires and I'm trying to get opinions on this line. On our previous travel trailer, it came with Mission tires and one blew taking part of the camper with it. 2 of the other 3 head tread seperation - - - and yes....they were running the correct PSI as I'm quite anal about that.

Dealer is not willing to trade out the Towmax for another line. So I have to live with them or buy new ones on my own.

Thoughts/opinions welcome.

I'm not familiar with those tires, but you might go over to and do a search. It's getting tough to find a quality tire in the 15" sizes. A lot of folks with heavier 5ivers are upgrading to 16" wheels and Michelen XPS ribs. Lot of money, but piece of mind.

I've got Carlisle tires on my 5th wheel Toy Hauler. These are Chinese made, as are most ST tires these days. I check the air pressure EVERY time the trailer goes out, check them at every stop, and I keep my speed at 60 or below. Heat is the biggest killer for tires of any kind. I'm probably going to upgrade to the Michelens sometime in the future.

If I passed you on the right, it means you were in the wrong freaking lane.
