Check those tire manufacture dates

We purchased our first MH in Dec of 09. It was a 2000 model National on the Ford f-53 Chassis with only 15K miles on it and the tires looked new (Goodyear G-159 245/70 R19.5). After putting 12K miles on in the last two years I found the IRV2 forum and have sure learned allot since. I noticed today that the side walls have a few checks so climbed under and discovered my tires are the original equipment manufactured in 1999. Set to get all 6 replaced on Monday before we start out for the season. Could have been a disaster.

I just bought a 10 year old coach (15,000 miles on it) last fall and it had the original Good Years on it as well. First I thing I did was get them changed. I will never expect these Chinese things I replaced them with to last that long....

What tire did you go with? My tire guy is telling me the Dinatrac is a Chinese tire but he is saying I will time out way before I wear them out. $1800 out the door and he states has sold many with no problems. He has never steered me wrong before.

That's the one, Dynatrac ST990. Made by Double Coin. I didn't have a lot to compare to ride-wise since I took the GYs off the second day. These are a rougher ride than I expected. You are supposed to inflate them to 125 PSI to get the 5675 lb load capacity. I think some others you can inflate less to get a similar weight rating. No tire pressure loading charts are available for these tires. I am running mine at 100 PSI.


They are 16 ply, speed symbol J, which technically means they are rated up to 62 MPH. Slightly concerning.... But anyway, I did a fair amount of research and price shopping so I believe them to be a reasonable value. I only have maybe 1500 miles on them so far.
