Bridgestone R268's available at Dickman's

This is an unusual one. For a few reasons, i will not be taking delivery of 6 Bridgestone R268's 12R 22.5 tires, at Dickman Tires in Junction City. This is a popular size for some of the Country Coach models, and of course others. But it is not in heavy demand for the trucking industry.

Dickman's brought these in out a Southern California warehouse, and received them in September/October.

As I will not be able to get them, I wanted to let anyone looking for 12R 22.5 tires, that these were available. A Tier 1 tire.

I've been trying to work with Dickman's on this set, and want them to be able to move them while still young! And, as a no sales tax state, this could also be a good value!

Best to all, travel safe, have fun,
Smitty

I'm riding on Bridgestone tires and love the ride. Very pleased with the tire and will look at them again when I'm due to replace tires.

Hey Cari - Missed your post!

Do you mind sharing which Bridgestone's your riding on? (We're still working with Dickman on tires in the first half of 2016, depending upon when our 'up in the air' revision to school allows us to head north!).

TIA,
Smitty

R250 295/80R 22.5. These are the tires that were on the coach when we bought it last year. Of course, these are the only tires that I have used on this coach and can only compare them to previous coaches, which were not similar chassis.

These have a 2012 date and I'm not sure of how many miles are on them. They do appear to be wearing well and they ride smoothly.

Those were one of the three tires that Parkhouse tire recommended to me when we bought our fist set 6 or so years ago now. The manager said they had had many coach owners pleased with their wear and handling. Ended up with Michelin XZE's, due to he said he could control the dates better on those and the Bridgestones would have taken him a few more days to get in.

Glad yours are treating you well.

I liked the Michelin tires on my last coach, as well. Happy New Year! Hopefully, the passes will clear soon
