Needing an inexpensive set of replacement tires for my little 22' camper, I succumbed to the vast amount of positive reviews on WalMart.com and purchased two Crosstour tires. Yeah, this is a little single axle trailer, where I upgraded the rims to 16" and I run 235/85-16, 10 ply tires..... cause I tow the little guy way off the grid, into the back-country and I want toughness and never a flat. When I checked-out with the shop manager, I asked him if he had any opinion on the tires. He just said they have only been selling them for a few months, but that they were installing tons of them that are being purchased on Walmart.com. He said they seem good, balance fine and so far.... haven't had a single failure come back in. Technically, they are delivered from Simple Tire. While I was shopping online, I found Crosstours in a 255/55-19 for $80 a piece. Locally, I couldn't find summer tires for the wife's Benz for less than $150 and the stock tires priced out at $240 a tire. I may regret it, but I dropped the $320 for four new Crosstours for our ML250. The tires arrived yesterday and they look great. Tread is thick and they look well-made. Note, we have two sets of rims and run winter and summer tires on that car, so the summer tires only get about 10k miles a year. Anyway, I will report on how these tires perform over time, but wonder if anyone else has given these a try? I'm not expecting miraculous results, but if they will last three years and 30k miles, I will be pleased for the price. (Our turbo diesels tend to go through tires more quickly than any gas auto's I have had in my life.) I am sooo soooo temped to purchase a set of Crosstour 305/70-17's for my Ram EcoDiesel at $130 a tire. ============================= PROFILE Linglong Americas, Inc. is a subsidiary of Shandong Linglong Tire Co., Ltd., a Top 20 global tire manufacturer with headquarters in Zhaoyuan City in the Shandong Province of China.
