Best price for tires

We have an 05 Georgie Boy and there are hardly any miles on it. but the tires have cuts on the sidewall. Does anyone know the cheapest place to buy tires or anywhere you can buy used tires maybe off of wrecked RV's? They are Michelins 235/80/22.5. Thanks for anmy insight

I don't think I would go the used tire route unless you know they are fairly new.Costco has pretty good prices on michelins and other brands of RV tires. If you go the used tire route look at the date on the tire to see when it was made,its a four digit number right after the serial number that may read something like 2211 which means it was made in the 22nd week of 2011.Hope this helps.

We found that Toyo tires are quite a bit less expensive than Michelins and actually ride a little better.

Put Hankook's on my Winnebago on the advise of my local R.V. repair shop and so far so good. Rides nice and far less cost of a Goodyear or Michlin. I would go with all new tires, avoid used because you might get my old ones...they appeared brand new but 8 years old so I wouldn't risk it in the used department.

Since I started driving in 1962 I've never bought used tires. I did put recaps on one car though but that was when I was first married and didn't have much $$.
Since then I've never used anything but new Michelins.
