I have the Roadmaster RM160's on my 5er and they have been on for over 4years with no problems, I don't keep track of the miles ,but have over 20,000miles on them could be as high as 30,000, without any problems. I rotate them yearly and watch the air pressures. So the end result is that you shouldn't be afraid of this brand of tire, If you are happy with the price, go for it and don't think anymore about it.

Thanks for your input, I'm wondering if you did get the RM-170 and what you might think about them now. I have been looking at the RM170 and the RM253 but neither of them is pointed at a MH. Mine is a 2002 Workhorse Chassis and I have used Goodyear, Continental, and BF Goodrich on and all ran out of Time (5 to 7 yrs) so I'm looking at these now. After talking to Cooper they think the RM170 is better suited to the MH due to tread design both will do them load requirements but the 253 could be a little noise. Thanks for your comments on this.

Haven't used the Coopers, but was going to put them on my old 450 until I traded for new one. Did have the Sailun 19.5s on it for over 55k miles, no problems.
I had put Sailun 17.5s on the last Suites and they were going strong (inc trip to AK) when I traded for a newer one with Goodyears.
I have used a set of Hankooks (believe them to be Korean made) on the 450 and they did well also.
The 'China Bomb' mindset is alive and well, and should be considered when thinking about a brand never heard of before--just a little research on the internet will reveal reviews/comments about whether they perform or not.

I will add an UPDATE to the RM series Cooper's that I have used over the last 6 years and am replacing this season with more Coopers. My tires were RM170 G rated and 225/70R/19.5 size.... I ran them on 2200 mile trips and shorter 380 mile trips (4-6 per year).... and they did great. I am going to change my model to a Steer and Drive tire mix.... I did run in snow and ice and the RM170s were a bit slim in that cold ice mess... My thought is to run the RM253's on rear...perhaps front too. Still using G rated will be my goal. You do feel a difference in the F vs G rated. The stiffer G offers a stiffer ride in my 1994 32H Bounder. But it was a kind of a safer feeling driving and feeling the road.
My conclusion... I like the Cooper tires and will use them again.

Good info.
I would be pleased to hear how you find the 253's in comparison with noise being my concern.
