Aluminum or Steel Rims

Are the Rims on Allegro 2015 31 SA Steel or Aluminum? We are having the tires rotated and the shop asked if the back rims were steel and the front Aluminum. Or, are they the same on the front and back.

If you have aluminum wheels the inside duals will be steel on 99% of the rigs out there.

Not sure why you are having your tires rotated - unless you are having some wear problems. If that is the case, then your alignment and loading needs to be checked - as well as your inflation pressures.

However, to answer your question, your inside dual wheels are steel.

Having the tires rotated because we are following the maintenance schedule. I called Tiffin service center before I got a response and was told they were all Aluminum.

Doubtful of this. Think you will find, as I said earlier, the inner duals will be steel.

Since we've owned MH's (1988 on) I've never had any of the tires rotated. Never had a wear issue that required it.

X-2,, Very sound advice! A 2015 MH most certainly does not need the tires rotated? As long as the tires are wearing ok, they will date out way before they wear out! JMHO! Rail!

FWIW, I agree with MR D. I firmly believe your F53 chassis has steel wheels on the inner duals. Furthermore, I'll bet money I can't afford to loose that the outer dual aluminum wheels won't fit on the front and the front wheels won't fit on the back. Almost all gassers have this problem, and I think you will find the tires have to be dis-mounted and remounted (and therefore re-balanced, too) in order to rotate them front to back. They can be rotated "side-to-side" (same axle), but that rarely does any good.


If you are able to get this rotation done without all that trouble and expense, please come back and tell us I was wrong.

Our motorhome has 6500 miles. We ordered it new, picked it up in Texas, and drove it up to Alaska. According to the Maintenance schedule, the tires should be rotated after 6500 miles. When have others had tires rotated?

If all is well with load and alignment, we really don't put enough miles on our coaches to warrant wheel or tire rotations.

Yes if we did 10K per month like commercial carrier's yes you have to if you what even tire wear. Like mentioned above, our coach tires age out before we wear them out.

Save your money on that part of your maintenance program and concentrate on other areas like tire condition as far as damage.
