Looking for FACTS on Mission brand tires.
Am doing research for a write-up on Mission brand tires. I believe the design of interest is "Radial ST". When I do a search I find a lot of 2nd hand info such as "A friend had a failure" or "I heard about Mission tire failing" or “I read about these China tires failing"/
What i do not find very often is a clear statement from a user who personal had a failure. The few times there is statement from an owner there is no mention of the tire size or the actual loads on the tires
or even how many tires they had and age of the tires. I also do not recall ever finding the DOT provided.
With all the repeated stories on this brand I would have thought it would be easy to get the facts but since there is only a single complaint filed with NHTSA and in that complaint there is no DOT info or tire size and the design is an "FT" and the person filing the complaint said the tires were made by General Tire Co. so that single complaint is very suspect and of little help in trying to look at facts.
If you owned Mission brand tires and had good luck or bad please PM me with whatever data you can. I really do not want to try and write an article based on rumor and hear say information.
Thanks for your support.
Doubt you will get many truthful answers on the actual loads....very few actually weigh their RV. What you will get is a lot of "we don't travel heavey, or we were nowhere close to uor GVWR". Kinda nuddies the data.
