Our 2010 Cruiser has Chinese tires as do all new Cruisers but not Missions. There are approximately 7,000 miles on the tires. The tires, according to the DOT code on the sidewall, were manufactured in early 2009. We took delivery of the Cruiser in August, 2009. I inspect the tires each time I am near the RV, even at the storage place where it is kept. So far there are no signs of wear or cracks. I keep each tire at the recommended 65 psi and never drive over 65 mph. It gets very hot down here in South Central Texas so speed is a definite issue. I believe many of the failures are due to owner misuse although some swear they do not. I use tire covers when camped for more than a couple of days as UV rays are supposed to deteriorate the rubber.
Chinese tires are a definite concern to all of us but if you go on the various RV forums you will see failures of all brands regardless of place of manufacture. I have stopped reading all the tire postings because I am now paranoid about my tires. Maybe one day our non-functioning government and its DOT will step up and help us out?
