Mission Tires

The trailer we just purchased has Mission Tires on it. The trailer was never used but I read some of these tires stink. In fact I have read complaints about my of the trailer tires. What has been your experience?

Our Que has Mission tires. Took it to FL and back from PA on our shakedown a few months ago (2500 miles). I was having problems with one losing pressure....(which was the subject of multiple posts). This was ultimately found to be caused by a concealed puncture....and it was patched.
I have read many posts (RV Net, etc.) totally hostile to the Mission (and other China-built) tires....including bad experiences,BUT:
Thus far....I have had no personal bad experiences or reasons to distrust the tires any more than most other brands. We're leaving next week for a trip to the West Coast & back.... and we're planning to do it on the Missions.

Mission Tires

Don't even ask. We had a flat tire on a trip to Mississipi. (Mission tires) Trailer only 8 mos old. Called AAA. They changed the tire. checked all air pressure. Put on our brand new Mission Spare. We traveled 20 miles and had a blow out.

Needless to say, not a fan of Mission tires.

kanyonkitty is an unknown quantity at this point
I have Mission tires. I check lug nut torque and tire pressue before each trip. I have aluminum wheels. Kept tires coveded when not in use.(But, I have been lacking on this since I got the RV Port). My Sunline has been from the eastern panhandle of West Virginia to: Pigeon Forge, TN (3 times), Wisconson Dells (1x), The Badlands, The Black Hills, then to Glacier Nat. Park, then eastward across US 2 into Mackinaw City, Michigan and then south back home. So, quite a few miles, and no problems. I just looked at my tires when I got home this evening, and tread all looks great, no sign of uneven wear. As of right now, I am planning to leave home on/around July 10th for AZ, UT and CO, and will do so with my Missions. I am sure I will need to replace them by the time I complete this proposed trip, "IF" not before. I will probably be near that "magical" number of about 20K on these tires by then.
