Tire Review: Power King Towmax 225/75r/15
Power King Towmax
Pure unadultrated junk.
I always took care of my tires but these tires did not last 8,000 miles.
Do not try to get warranty because they will always blame you.
These were stock tires on a purely junk Forest River Wildcat and were supposedly rated for this class of fifth wheeler.
After 4 blow outs, all being side wall failure, and over 2000 dollars of trailer damage due to a very poorly engineered trailer design I can surely say that Power King blaming it on the owner is not justified.
Lesson learned, stay away from anything remotely related to Forest River and Power King!
Power King,Tow Max ST225/75r-15 Tires
I have Tow Max ST225/75R-15 tires, Dot code year 2007, pulling a 28ft 5th wheel trailer. I am aircraft mechanic, the tires had good tread and tires properly inflated, I drive @55mph to keep tires cool, and do not exceed speed rating of these tires and cover the tires when stored to prevent deterioration.
I had 2-tires blow out at different times, it caused a lot of damage to the r/h rear quarter panel of the trailer, lots of lost time and dollars to fix.
You're looking for trouble with these tires.

It is evident that you have had a problem but unless you spell out the details and circumstances we cannot begin to appreciate or understand what your situation is about.
A review of this kind is almost useless to publish and a waste of your time to bother posting it except to bad-mouth the dealer who you purchased it from.
I am publishing this "review" only as a bad example of many similar reviews which we simply reject when we receive them.
If you have a case, please give us all the details. Then we can form our own conclusions, but put yourself into other people's shoes and ask yourself why anyone should accept the opinion of a perfect stranger without any concrete facts to back them up?

We have a 2013 Bighorn 5th wheel that came with Tow Max tires. We were traveling from Texas to Ohio. In Arkansas we experienced a blowout that shredded the right tire and damaged the underside and wheel well and left us without lights on the right side. The tires looked new. We kept them covered. We used correct air pressure. We drove correct speed. We did everything right. My husband is a retired aircraft mechanic and is very careful about tires. He checked them every time we stopped. In Tennessee a lady alerted us to the
Second tire failure so we pulled over and he changed the second tire. 25 miles later he discovered a big bulge in the center of the tire so we changed that tire! We had one spare and bought 2 more Tow Max after first blowout. We got to Camping World in Akron and we¿re told our tire insurance did not cover mfgr defects. We bought 6 Goodyears, 4 were put on and 2 spares. I repeat...my husband is very careful about tires!!!
TOW MAX STR ST235/80-R16 POWER KING RADIAL TIRES ARE JUNK!! I think the insurance companies know it too and thats why they deny any claims. Do not put your life on these tires. Too dangerous

Tire Review: Power King Towmaster
by Peter Schemenauer
I have just experienced tire failure using Power King Towmaster tires at less than 3000 miles and driving at 60 mph on a good straight road with tire pressure at manufacturers reccommended pressure.
I could not beleive how thin the sidewall of these tires are. Since our trailer is new and we have a list of issues with it alrady I stopped by a major rv dealer in Yuma, Arizona.
One of the sales people reccomended I change all four tires. I would think by this and the amount of online comments it is time someone does something to prevent a serious accident if it has not happened already.
If you have had a problem with these tires and would like to join a group action please contact me at email@example.com

Having trouble balancing tires. Could it be the bud wheels or tires?
We have about 7000 miles on these tires. They are about 6 years old.
We changed the axel bearings and seals since, greased the front bearings, since tires are out of balance.
They are on our short 24 ft. school bus.
Because of the age of the tires and the mileage it would seem that the vehicle spends a lot of time without moving. This raises the possibility that the tires may have become deformed due to remaining stationary for long periods and losing air (which is normal) over these periods. If the tires have become deformed for this reason, they could very well be impossible to ever balance.
Another possibility are the wheels, as you suggest. Over time they may have experienced some deformation, maybe because of impact in use and this, too, could cause balance problems.
If you have a good wheel on which these tires fit that has been balanced with another tire, try mounting one on that wheel and seeing if you can balance it. If you can't then you definitely have a problem with the tire. The other tactic might be to mount a tire which you know is good on the bud wheel and trying to balance that. This would tell you whether or not the bud wheel is adequate, or not.
