We've been enjoying a couple of consecutive weeks out camping with our Crusader, and during our last weekend move to another RV park here in Michigan, I noticed an unusual 'wobbling' of one of the trailer's tires in my side view mirror. Fortunately this was one of the front tires and more easily seen.
After arrival and setup, I did an inspection and saw a bad crowning (second pic) of the tread on this tire which suggested problems. This morning I decided to err on the side of caution and swap out this tire for the spare for our trip home this weekend. Upon further inspection I found a severe bulging on the inside of the tire as pictured.
I'm relieved that this didn't result in the blowout that was certainly in my future, which would have likely caused damage to our 1 year old Crusader.
The Power King Tow Max tires have approx 1500 miles on them and have always been kept at the proper 80 psi. I've also towed at or below 65mph, and in Michigan, the summer temps are not excessive. I've never curbed or mistreated them in any way, and stored in the winter (6 months) with most of the trailers weight off of the axles.
I have a set of Good-Year Marathons waiting my arrival when we get back home for immediate mounting. I'm not taking any chances on these ticking time bombs. Thanks to the members here for posting their stories and recommendations, and hope my experience helps others as well.
If anyone here has any info regarding this tire manufacturer (Power King?) standing behind their product, I would appreciate your sharing it? I'm not in the least bit interested in a replacement tire (same), but any consideration for refund or credit would be nice.
Thanks all! Have a great 4th.
