Dayco Tires???

Our maintenance facility suggests "Dayco tires". Can find no current mention of their tires on the internet. Lots of hoses and belts and historically understand they invented airless tires and many other tire inovations.
So far it's been on the phone but at $280. each for 2.75/70R/22.5 it may be worth the 30 mile round trip for more investigation.
Any info??

Years ago I worked for Dayton Tire & Rubber, which originally was affiliated with Dayco. But that was many years ago. Dayton Tire was sold to Firestone, and Dayco continued to make belting, hose, etc. Dayton is still a viable Firestone brand, but is no longer made in Dayton, Ohio.

I can't find any reference to a Dayco tire brand anywhere. Are you sure they didn't say (or mean) Dayton? As has been pointed out, Dayton is a different company/brand altogether.

If Dayco is hard to find, what do you do if you have a failure under warranty and are traveling away from your dealer?

The maint. person did mention that he understood that Dayco was manufactured by Firestone or Goodyear. Will investigate the first of next week.

The price of $280.00 for a 22 inch tire sounds very low. You get what you pay for, as the saying goes. I've done a lot a research and pricing in an effort to replace my 6-7 year old Michelin XRV's 24570R19.5. On Monday, I will have 6 of them installed on my W-20....they are Michelin XZE's, which is a better tire than the XRV and the cost for each tire is $330.00 plus balancing, installation, new steel valves, FET, etc. Three other dealers in the area were in the ball park with the price. Camping World was a tad higher for XRV's. I didn't ask CG for a price on XZE's. So, as I said, you get what you pay for. Years ago, we had a 28 foot class C and bought "inespensive" tires for it. Had three blow outs inside a year!

Hope this helps and I'm not trying to bash Dayco but relate my experience.
