This is my 3rd Montana. Before these I had a HC that arrived with Rainer LR F tires. I felt lucky to go 45 miles from the dealer to the tire shop where I had Sailuns waiting. Shop gave me $30 each for the 5 Rainers. They went on farm trailers, hay wagons etc. hopefully on a poop spreader. I had no faith in them. Others have hade great luck. All are a luck of the draw and at the mercy of our �� roads.

You might be interested in doing some research on Boar Wheels. IMO they are the only tires and wheels to protect my crew and investment. Well worth the investment. IMO.
Stay safe.

Difficult to be sure with only one picture and limited information but that failed tire could be the result of Run Low Sidewall Flex Failure.
Do you run a TPMS? If so what is the low pressure warning level? Have you run a test to confirm the TPMS is working properly? Do you have other pictures of the failed tire?

Just replaced all 5 of our Rainier tires... After one blew and another had a tread separation. Less than 10k miles on them. Keep a close eye on them, and ditch them for something good first chance you get! It ripped a hole so the way through the bottom of our trailer!

Did you file two complaints with NHTSA? One for each tire. You will need both VIN and the full DOT including the date part of the tire S/N.


The general failure of the RV community to take the 10 minutes required to file complaints is a major reason for us not getting the durability we want.

Were they the G rated ones?
