I will look into that. I don't know why this was not suggested by the tire dealers that I have had the coach to, that was what I told them my concern was.

Tire life

Tire life has more to do with time that miles. Trucks front end will go about 145,000 drives about 245,000 cap then two times and in the dump (5 years) max There is a reason the dot made tire companys put the date on the tires. For the man that found a 6 inch split in the tire you or very lucky, 5 year max for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tires are very low cost when you think about all work they do.

Cuting tires

Dale: Tire companys like to cut new tires, drive a few miles and come back then they don't they will have to get all the rocks out first so they can cut it. Only people that do a lot of trucks do this work. Most people want to sell you not take care of you.
