Road Rider ST tires

These tires are what came on my Lacrosse. Has anyone had any problems with these, particularly premature failure? I am mildly concerned as I have never heard of them, but have heard and seen pictures from other unknown tire brands and the damage caused by catastrophic failures. Looks like they are made by Dynamic Tire Corp, out of Canada. Not sure if that is where these tires are made, but I would guess China. Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.

I never bothered to look at the brand of my tires on my 303 RKS and it's in storage right now but, we bought it in early September from Schaeffer RV in Hamburg, Pa and towed it 2 hours to Gettysburg. A couple more 50 - 60 mile round trips from home to campsite, a round trip to New Hampshire and a round trip to Myrtle Beach in December and I didn't see anything unusual. So hopefully, if we all have the same tires, we won't have any problems.

Have them on my crusader. So far so good. If you keep them covered when parked, full of air and replace when they start to crack, I believe you can avoid most tire problems

What is the DOT code on the tires?
That will tell you where they are made.
I have the codes, so if you post I can tell you the origin.

Crocus,

Thanks but the trailer is in storage so I am unable to get the codes. However, I am positive they are made in China by looking closely at the picture from Dynamic. Somewhat troubling is that it appears the tires are no longer made.

In most circles they are called China bombs for a reason. Your choice as always but if it were me I would get them off this spring and replace them with a quality tire NOT made in China. Either that or be prepared for the damage when they start self destructing at 65MPH.

Well, I just replaced the Chinese tires on my brand-new camper with Maxxis 8-plies, so what can I say?

These tires are definitely still being made. They are pulled out of the same mold as a retail-sold tire called Tow Max. LaCrosse's have a 15" 8-Ply "D" Range specification. They are radial constructed.

At the expense of sounding like a lawyer, substitutions might occur from time to time .

Thanks RV Guy. I had Tow Max tires on my last fifth wheel and they were a good tire. Reading this helps alleviate my initial concerns.
