We were at the factory Rally and stayeduntil Tuesday. We had an appointment with Randy again. When we got there he had 3 guys going over the entire electrical system and they found nothing wrong and we still don't know why the power converters keep failing. When we finally left we were 50 miles from the factory and a Mission tire self destructed. I'm guessing we had between 15 to 20,000 miles on the tires. I never felt or heardthe tire blowso I had no idea I had a problem. Luckily, a truck with 2 guys pulled up and signaled us to pull over. They came over and told us about the tire. It was on the passenger side and I could not see the tires on that side. While I was waiting for a guy to come out and change the tire I called Randy and told him I was coming back and explained the damage to him. The tire was totally shredded but the rim never touched the ground so it was not damaged. The fender was destroyed and the metal skirting behind the tire was also ruined. When I got to the factory Randy had everything I needed to fix it. One guy took the rim and a new tire and went to haveit mounted and 2 guys jumped on the repairs. I was repaired and on the road in 30 min. I know if I had taken it to a RV dealer they would have milked the hell out of the job. I was so happy with everything that they did for me that they had a Pizza Lunch on me.

Tom, I have heard this story before. They are the best are they not ??? Over and over again we hear about things just like this.



Welcome to the CrossRoads Family where they do things right. Are they perfect no I doubt that they are but I have seen them step up more times than not.

What did you think of the Rally ?

I had to replace the Mission tires on ourPP before they had 5k miles on them. We were very lucky that the tread started to seperate on 2 of them right as we got back from a trip. We weren't so lucky in that we had to put a $750 set of tires on a trailer we had owned 6 months.

BFG Commercial LT. No issues and I don't drive white knuckled staring at the mirrors waiting for a tire to blow like I did with the Missions.

Are these 15" ? I need to go see what are on our trailer. I have pulled ours at 90 + MPH for hours with no issues. That being said I see a little cracking starting between the tread now and try to stay at or under the posted speed limit and watch the corners. I figure I go the rest of the year ,,, But next year it's going to be time to figure it out. I know you do your homework and might just do what you did lol

Ours are 16" and the BFG Commercial does not come in anything less than 16". As far as pulling a 5th wheel at 90+ mph,no comment on that one.

They post the safe speed limit on the tire sidewall for the same reason they post the recommended inflation. SAFETY!!!!

Just got back from Colorado a little while ago. While unhooking at the storage yard I found that both tires on the drivers side were cracked all around the tire about 1/4 inch from the rim passenger side seems ok. The crqcks were not there this morning I check all tires before I leave anywhere. I think I may check to see if Cooper has gotten into the trailer tire business

I had the exact same issue. Tire exploded onteh passenger side. I replaced it myself rather than attempt a warranty replacement.
