Provider Tires

I have my new Alpine, just hit 2000 miles on it. It has Provider Tires. Tread is still good, but like many it seems this is an off brand. Anyone have experience on how long these will last? Last thing I want is a blow out. Weve had some hot weather traveling 100+.

I have the same brand of tires but not many miles towing on them. So like you I am interested to hear feedback on the tires quality. I keep mine covered and off the ground.
Here is some info on what you (we) have: (If they are 16 inch)

Yes they are made in China,but are they China bombs? I don't know or intend to find out. My tires are in great shape and I will give them a spin for a few trips unless my TPMS (highly recommended) or negative feedback on this forum say's otherwise.

I have/had the same qualms about the Provider tires but everything I've found on them has eased my fears somewhat. I'm starting to believe that even though they are made in China they are not the low quality that Trailer Kings or other lower wight graded tires are. Only have about 4,000 miles on mine at this point but so far no problems.

Accord to a guy(JIMNLIN) that hauls commercially on RV.net the Providers are highly regarded by their industry.

I don't think all "Chinese" made tires are inferior. From what I've seen there are certain plants in certain provinces (Shandong) that seem to produce the majority of the "bombs" so just being "Chinese" isn't the driving factor; it goes deeper than that from what I can tell. Probably who owns the plant, oversight, production criteria, QC etc.

The G rated Provider tires on your Alpine will be just fine. They are 4400 lbs at 110 psi. Wheels should be rated at that since it came from factory with those tires on it. You can verify wheel psi by looking on backside of wheel

Id recommend you spend a few bucks and install a TPMS on the fifth wheel. I have one and also two sensors on my rear wheel tires on truck so I can monitor temps and pressures.

Typically if I tow in 90 plus temps at 62 mph I see about 122 for average psi on RV tires and temps are around 128 depending on which side is getting sun.

My drive tires on truck run at about 90 psi with about 118 temp.

I inflate my G rated Chinese Geo Stars to 110 psi cold and rear tires on truck at 80 psi cold.

My tow speed is a constant 62 mph.

Provider Tires

Im happy that Alpine now comes with G rated tires. My 2014 Alpine came with Trailer King E rated 10 ply crap. They were removed first year before I had issues.

Honestly any G rated tires on an Alpine or like weight fifth wheel will be just fine for several seasons.

Proper cold air inflation and keeping speed at a sensible 65 or less is paramount.
