we have a 2007 30sk, bought used 6 months ago, reading posts on tires much to my dismay, we have Mission TC-108 ST 225/75R15 on it, there is a dot 4YB3 followed by 5206 on all 5 then there is a impressed number not the same on any this must be a serial number, checking around ou areahave not found anything but tires from china, even the toyo's on our suv were made in china. all the negative things I have read about these tires makes me hesitant to use it for long distances any help is appreciated

The #s---5206, means they were made the 52nd week of 2006. You probably should consider putting new ones on. I replaced the missions on ours with Goodyear the next year after we bought it.AND, YES, they are marked ---made in the USA!!!

Thanks for the info, our previous 3, 5th wheels had goodyears only had one failure and it failed on its 7th year, firm believer in nothing over 6 years.

I replaced my china pos tires about 2 years after owning our unit. I replaced them with Goodyear Marathons which where made in USA. Others have replaced with Maxxis made in Thailand and had good luck.

I choose Goodyears because I wanted something more readily available outside major cities, in case of an issue.

I just put Goodyear Marathons on and they were made in China. I've had good results with Marathons in the past but they were made in USA.

I had discussed with CR president that they should have an option for better tires for those willing to pay the extra, got nowhere.
