Tires?

#1
i posted this on the general board but maybe it belongs here for a better answer.
I just got a quote for new tires @ 350.00 each installed for michelin tires.

Are there other brands that you seasoned guys recommend? I got a quote on another tire of 200.00 each installed. the price difference scared me into asking what you guys put on your rv's.

the size is 225/70 r19.5

Re: Tires?

As I posted on your General RVing thread. Michelins all the way. I too use Michelin EPS RIB tires. Work great. Stress relief is worth the extra cost.

Re: Tires?

Now we know those old cummins don't have enough power to burn the tires so guess the Michhelins or ok. Woops, sorry thought I was on the dragster forum and doing a Goodyear slick burnout with the chevette :blackeye:

Re: Tires?

Seen arguements both ways. Have seen blowouts on both. Think the cause most of the times is under inflated or overload. Either should serve the purpose as logn as they are rv approved tires. Just remember that very seldow are tires worn out and they should be replaced ever 5 to 7 year regardless of tread depth. Age is what gets rv tires JMO

Re: Tires?

Thanks for the info. I have read somewhere, in this forum i think, there is a number or date on the tire that gives the date is was made. Are you or anyone else aware of this and if so is it in code or a day & year.

Re: Tires?

thanks for the quick reply. Your info goes in the file that says keep, keep, keep. I really appreciate your info. May save me from a blow out on an old tire that I did not know I had. :) :)

Re: Tires?

Don, good to hear that you are looking at the age of the tires. Hard to get some to realize that it's the age and not tread depth alone to look at on rv tires.

Re: Tires?

Don, downside to that is we got old and learned most of it the hard way. These forums are amazing with how much knowledge is shared by beginners and those that have been rving for years. We are never to old to learn but find it hard to remember sometimes :laugh:

Re: Tires?

My 2 blow outs were with Goodyear. No problems in 8 years running Michelins. The differences are:
Goodyear "E" Load Range Light Truck (LT) Tread 2 plies polyester, 2 plies steel. Sidewall 2 plies polyester.
Michelin "E" Load Range "E" LT Commercial XPS RIB: Tread 4 plies steel. Sidewall 1 ply steel (all steel, no polyester)

We watch the Roloffs (Little People Big World) on TLC channel Monday nights. If you can't get inspired by the life story of Matt Roloff, then you must REALLY be handicapped. http://mattroloff.com/

We all have our handicaps to overcome, and we do it in our own way, in our own time.
