Jim, they are approx. 85 to 90 pounds. I would take it to a truck shop and pay the $10 to $15 they would charge you to swap two tires. You might want them to check your front brakes at the same time.

Before rotating your tires, check them thoroughly for sidewall cracking and other damage. 6 year old tires on a motorhome are about the life limit of these tires. You might consider purchasing new and saving the price of rotating them.

Be safe.

I agree with Pusherman, and I also suggest you have the front alignment checked.

I don't think is the weight you have to worrey about, it's the lug nut torque.....

Tires on the wheels are probably more like 150+ pounds; lugnut torque will be high; you probably need an alignment, and the tires are 6 years old. Seems to me its time to get everything fixed at once by getting new rubber and let somebody else do the labor!
