There is quite a big demand for part-worn tyres (11x22.5) They are the standard size for an 18 wheel semi. Enough blow- out on the interstates and tire shops have to replace with something of nearly the same tread depth as the other tire. Maybe you could get a better trade-in price if you changed them earlier.

tires

I agree - tires are a pain. Hopefully our tires won't be sitting too much without use - that is the plan anyways, once we are finished going over everything, even though it is in great shape I still want to go over the belts and hoses and all the fluids to make sure I am not missing something. Although the rear tires look great, we will probably change them out sooner than later, it all comes down to safety and besides it is a pay now or pay more later which is a real bummer. Do you use the tire monitors? any recommendations? I know I will want that for the toad (and truck), this monster wouldn't feel it if the toad was upside down being dragged behind.....

I use the TST 507, flow thru sensors, and I kind of like it. My problem is I trust my handy tire gauge and a thump-er during stops. I use it primarily to let me know if a tire is going low or running hot. The sensor measures heat in the area of the tire and not from within the wheel. We have a 13 mile 6% grade nearby so watching the temp/pressure build is helpful. I change the batteries every six months regardless of use to minimize the chance of a sensor low battery when tooling down the highway. Be able to change your own batteries is better than sending a sensor back for overhaul.

Great, I will check that out.

When I decided to change my tires I just bought new steers the first summer. Then the next spring I bought new drives. Made the spending a bit easier by spreading it out that way. I run a Pressure Pro system. I'm very happy with it. The first set of sensors lasted about 5 years. Then I started getting some random drop outs, like the power was going down on them. So I called the company and got replacements. I think they were $35/each since I already had the system. I run 6 on my rig and 4 on my enclosed car trailer. The new sensors have worked great all last summer, and the two trips so far this spring have been fine too.
