Thx

Hey Vince,
I am getting ready to replace my tires. How did you go about selling the old ones? Who is in the market for aged out motorhome tires?
Thanks
Pete

Just put hankook ah12's on mine 245/75r22.5 16 ply in place of my 235/80r22.5 michelins which were only 14 ply.

The michelins were date code 2001 for 2 and 2005 for the other 4. Scary. This was just last week.

Tires ran about 1650$ and beads were 60$. I did the install myself in about 4 hours in the driveway. Torque on mine was 500ft lbs for lug nuts.

Question: why are people buying your used MH tires?

Really, why are people buying your used MH tires? While I have bought used tires for an in-town car, I certainly would never buy used tires for my MH, so who is buying them?

I have always sold my outdated tires from my coaches to truckers. I have 275/80/22.5 , truckers dont have to worry about a like new tread, but slightly dry rotted tire on the back of a trailer blowing out doing damage. Much better than a recap. Have you seen how many blown apart tires you see on the interstate ? Having a blow out on a rv is a different story. You are either going for heck of a ride if its a front tire, or risk severe destruction of body panels if its a rear tire.

I bought Yokohama tires for my coach from simpletire on line and had my local wingfoot dealer install them, balanced with beads. There have been a tire price increase on all tires since then. The tires i bought cost about $100.00 more now. Very happy with them.

Toyo tires so I understand are Japanís Michelin grade... I have them on my DP. note: keep your tires properly aired, and make sure the rear Duallies on each axel are aired equally if not you will have increased tire wearing as they will be fighting each other...

I had a similar issue on my 08 Sea Breeze and went to Les Swab tires here in Idaho. Treated me great and had about three options to choose from. (I paid $2200 for my six tires.)
Not sure where you live but there are some good options out there besides and RV dealership.
