Crosswind Tires - How Bad Are They?

We're getting ready to buy a rig that has 3 yr. old Crosswind's on it.

I know they're cheap Chinese tires but can't find any specifics about the quality of this particular brand. Apparently they are manufactured by Linglong, a large 40 yr. old tire company in China. I also read that they have an R&D location in Ohio.

Welcome to IRV2.. you are in the right place.. members here that labored tireless here to post information and tips .. so I have only been here 2.5yrs and in all my reading... not one good thing about Chinese tires.. the members here call them Chinese bombs.. and for one good reason.. they are close anyway.. pull them.. save for spares.. check dates on spare tire.. if it is like mine.. on 2000 mh.. it still is original.. and I looked at it this summer and could not believe it is 21yrs old.. so cracked and rotten I don't think the farmers can use it.. I am 2nd owner.. so I am moving the newest tire on chassis to spare and getting 6 new ones.. it has Chinese tires from 2014.. just havenot used it yet.. tires have shot way up.. good luck and let us know what you did and maybe better members then me will help you..

I bought 2 Crosswind 275 70 22.5 for the front of my 15 Discovery. They are far better than the junk Good Years I took off. They are truly round, needed very little lead balancing. Have very deep tread. I found their website with warranty and specs.
My local tire dealer said they have had no problems with them. Mine were made in Thailand.
Saved me hundreds per tire over GY and Michelin.
They ride good and handle better then the GY's
Buy them!
Im not ready for rears yet but I will use Crosswinds there.

Actually I am in the RV right now, having just filled it up after leaving the previous owners house.

They are actually Wanli tires in the front and Dynatrack's in the back.

They are 7 years old (or the date code is '14 anyway). I closely inspected all of them & there is no cracking and no sidewall bulges anywhere so we're driving on them. Two days from Missouri back to SE North Carolina. I want to see if I can find a TPMS system at a truck stop on the way though. Peace of mind.

I'm in an '02 Holiday Rambler Admiral 30 with two slides, both on the left side. I have 80 lbs. cold in all the tires. I checked them after about 15 min. at 50 - 60 mph and they're all around 86 - 88.

I should probably have more pressure on the slide side. Any advice is wecome.

Inside the MH is a Federal Tire Placard that lists the tire size and air pressure required for when the MH is at maximum GVWR. Use those air pressures if your present tire size and load rating matches the Placard.

Yeah that's what I did. I used a laser thermometer to check temps and based on that added about 10 lbs. to the rear on the side with the slides and 5 lbs. to the front on that side. After that temps looked pretty good and we made it home with no problems.
