I have run Roadmaster tires for a number of years on my 10 weelers with zero problems. I run 11x24.5 but they should be very similar. I am tough on tires becfause we are heavy and back in tight residential driveways many times a day. I knw that everyone hates the chinabombs, and I agree with the st tires are junk, but I think that the commercial tires are a better grade, at least those from cooper.

Just got back from our first 300 mile trip with these and I am happy. Possibly a rougher ride than the goodyears that came from the factory but then again they are G load rather than the stock F.

I think if you go read the tires again you will find that the 80 psi is the MINIMUM pressure required for the MAXIMUM rating of the tire. If you're not at the maximum weight for the tire you can run less pressure if they provide a weight/pressure chart to go by.

I have Cooper on my Winne. Ride well but only on second year to see how they hold up. We had many Cooper truck tires when I was in the business. Had great results across the board with them (as good as the Michelin and Goodyear on some of our other vehicles). I am hoping I have the same experience with these. Price was way below the other two brands. That money can go towards more fuel and toys for the MH.

Smile Cooper tires RM 170

They are made in China, by Cooper tires, but was told by my Vendor Pete's Road Service that they normally don't recommend these tires, because they had so many problem with China about failures,[not this brand] but after talking to the Rep. for more than a hour and explaining to him that most motorhomes do not drive more that a few thousand miles a year, he changed his mind and went on to say he now think I am correct, and that he now believe that these tires a good value. He said that if they stay inflated property they should easily last the 5 normal years of life on a motorhome.

Has anyone used these times and if so can you please provide me with you personal review?
Hello fellow RVers.
I have a 31 foot Winnebago class A motorhome and do a lot of travelling from Canada (Vancouver Island) to Arizona in the winter and also with a RV club. I had those tires installed on my motorhome in Jan. 2010. I wanted to let you know that I am very happy with those tires with no problems at all.
Happy travels.

I inherited a set

A new set came on mine. They have been great. Seem to ride well and are holding up well. While not a fan of China I am a fan of Cooper. Had them on many trucks over the years and they always backed their products.

I don't see any recent posts on the Cooper Roadmaster RM170 tires. Could someone that has used them for a while? We are planing on putting them on our RV before we head out this summer and would love to have some recent feedback before we do. Thanks.

Four years later I can still say that we use Cooper on our fleet trucks and have not had an issue with one yet. 3 HD trucks and 10 sets of trailers. The trailer tires that we have problems with generally are dated (old) tires and not Coopers.

They sound like they are worth considering!

Anyone have more update/experience?

Also seriously considering my options for the drive axle as I like the idea of a more traction if I get onto grass/dirt/snow...

I put them on the front of my previous 36 ft. Pace Arrow. I liked them. I preferred them over GoodYear that were on it before. The only blow out I ever had was on GoodYears less than 3 months old and less than 800 miles on them.

I had 6 of them installed in Sep and in Oct did a 760 mile trip with no issues (other than brakes). I can't compare them to anything since I had never driven the MH before. this trip. From my limited experience, they seemed fine as far as handling and smoothness.

Just my .02 cents,
64 caddie convert - Hankooks 2 years no problems (almost as heavy as my PA LOL)

1982 Pace Arrow 30ft.- just installed 6 AH11, Hankooks so far a lot better ride just installed. rear's 225x70x19.5 Have had fronts 2 months Very Happy,F's on the front and G Rated on the rears 120 psi. Installed, balanced about $1600.00 (replaced Bridgestone's, Michelin's )

1999 Deville - Good Years ensurance's 90,000 miles not 1 problem. Spendie, yes but lasted years, still got um on tried and trued.

Very Happy with Hankooks,

I looked into Roadmaster's also but just wasn't sure. They were Little less $$$

That's my experience.

After reading all of the posts on the Cooper RM 170 tires, it seams as though all the nay sayers haven't even ever tried them and wouldn't take the gamble with their precious equipment. I on the other hand am driven by price. We were just quoted 1832.00 installed here in MN. I think were going to do it. After some history, I'll report back.
