    Thanks , GeemanNone

    geeman53;

    Do a search on Mission Tires. There is a lot of information on them in the forum.

    Hi geeman,
    I currently have Mission tires on my Bighorn. They have held up just fine. Maybe out of luck, I don't really know. But we have put a few miles on them over three years now and so far so good. I do try to maintain the air pressure and look at them everytime we stop. We are not overloaded and I drive the posted speeds.

    Hope this helps,

    About 20k on mine. No explosions yet. Knock on wood. Plan to replace them next season.

    I check pressure before every move and put 80# cold. So far, so good.

    I also have Missions on my Sundance. I do everything that has been said. 80# pressure cold, check tires consistantly, and watch my speeds when towing. I also keep my tires covered when the rig is at home or when I spend more than a few days in the CG.

    I also have Mission 16" tires on my 3055rl, lots of people told me to get rid of them right away, but I thought I would give them a try. I maintain 80psi and check them regularly, and I also cover the tires when the vehicle is stationary for any length of time. I have probably 6000 miles on the tires and no wear to speak of and get a nice smooth ride. I did some research and found that the 15" tires were the ones that most people were having problems with....they have to be inflated to 110psi. I also read about problems with Goodyear maratons and other popular rv tires. I might have a different opinion after my 5000 mile trip this summer but, knock on wood, I'm giving them a try...jwb.

    We have about 15000 miles on our Misson tires. Just got back from a 5600 mile trip to the warmer climates of Az. and Californa. I check the pressure every time we move to a different campground. Also I check the inside, outside and the tread side of the tires for checks, blisters gashes or anything that does not look right. Yes you must get down on your knees, at least, to check the inside wall. While you are on your knees you might as well say a little tire prayer, too.
    So far so good.
