We got new Salun tires installed by Discount Tire. Discount has some amazing services that every MH owner should know about, at no additional cost. All of these are for the life of the tires. Free nitrogen inflationary. Free rebalancing and rotations. Road hazard replacement insurance at a nominal cost. They are located nationwide under various names and they give you a booklet with all the locations.

BTW, I didn't sell my old tires.

For the rear dually's, could I get by replacing the outer tires now and wait a year to replace the inners? I'm buying a TPMS system and thinking that I'll get a warning before the inners might blow out because they are sharing the load. What do you think?

Are Michelins the gold standard for best tire value? What other MH brands have made you folks happy?

If I post my used tires on Craigslist and specify the manufacture date, is there someone out there that might find a purpose for them?

Finally, are there any Colorado Springs members that have a special recommendation for honest tire dealers that know what's needed for motor homes?

Thanks a bunch.


If you replace one of a dual pair you MUST ensure both tires are from same manufacturer, same design, size, and Load-Range AND you need to measure the tire OC when fully inflated and the two tires MUST match each other within 3/4"
