Rainier Tires

I have a 2018 Montana fb3920 with 235/80/16 14 ply rainier tires from china.
Has anyone had experience with traveling on these?

Welcome to the forum!

The early E rated Rainer tires have a poor reputation. There has been very little data on the newer G rated tires. Let us know how it goes.

I've not had the mentioned tires. I do know the tire has a 5 yr warranty. The tire supplier Tredit, also offers a Tredit Advantage Program. It's an application you download to your phone. I've attached some information on the app.

We have about 1400 miles on our Rainiers without issues but I don't trust them. My plan is to use them this season while keeping a very close eye on them and changing them out before season 2.

They did indeed come with a 4 or 5 year warranty through Tredit. Still have little faith in them.

We ran our new tires for one season, but felt very uneasy about the reputation these tires had. I pulled in to a site and the first words from a fellow camper was; I should get rid of them quickly. My next campgrounds, two new model 5th wheels had severe damage from blowouts associated with the china tires. I spent a $1000 for G rated tires and replaced all 5 after the 1st season and it has been well worth the peace of mind that comes with it.

Look at the Brochure for your model year. Does it tout Rainier tires?
The latest Montana brochure touts Sailuns.

Having roadside assistance to help if a tire blows is good.
What is better is not have a tire blow at all.

Having a tire blow and the damage it can cause could be a trip ruining event

and off to the races

The correct size of Sailuns don`t cost that much and eliminates one more thing to worry about. I find it hard to believe people still try and get away with the factory tires after all that`s been written about them. Really stock tires are just delivery tires IMHO. Adding a few hundred dollars to the cost of a very expensive camper should be nothing to fret about. Consider the damage cost and time down.

Check your spec sheet against what's on your rig. For my 2018 HC345RL, it specs a ST235/80R16 load range F. My surprise yesterday when I noticed they are actually a load range E. Heading to the dealer tomorrow for, hopefully, the gear box oil leak fix.

When I got my Montana HC the service manager with 30+ years in the business told me "Run them for a year and then get rid of them". I got rid of them after 3 days of ownership. Call it peace of mind, call it not having to deal with a blow out at the worst possible time, call it stupid, I don't worry about it now. IMHO, buy the best that you can afford, as soon as you can and move on to something more important-LIKE DINNER!
