What tires come on your new motorhome and what load range are they using?

Incredible price. Should be about $3000.

Ok got the tire, definitely a great deal! Date code is OCT 7 2013, doesn't get any newer than that! Hope I can find a deal like this in a few years when I need 6 tires.

Ok, I gotta ask. How does the date code indicate that it was made on oct 7, 2013? Looks like it reads 4113 which would indicate that it was made in the 41st week of 2013.

Oct 7 is the first day of the 41st week, I just rounded it off to make it easier to understand. Close enough for me, sorry.

Not sure of the no.'s on the size. I just had to replace two front Goodyears today,, they were beginning to separate on the first outside bead. i had the coach aligned before putting two new Michelins on.... the tech said it was 1/2 inch off of toe. i have no idea how much that contributed to my problem.... the tires may of had 20,000 on them and were 3 years old

I just put 2 new Michelins on the front of my motorhome a month back, the dates were Aug of this year I belleve. Cost me $1360 for 2 275/70 22.5's XRA, the stiffer sidewall. Actually the old ones drove better but one was worn down some. I plan to also get an alignment. I'm going to get 4 new rears before I leave one says its 9 years old and that's enough for me. I have it in the shop right now for a new front levelor and to check the driver windshield which is loose in the bottom left corner.

All the regular maintenance is done, filter, oil, tranny fluid, etc. Hope to leave middle of January, DD and I can hardly wait.

Time flies didn't realize this photo was in 2012. I need to wax it again, she is old but I like her.

Patstab, what park was that photo taken in and what state is it. I'm just curios, it looks so desolate with just the little palm trees and power lines. I'm assuming its florida. Is this typical for a full time or sno bird park? I envisioned them much nicer with some separation between sites. I might reconsider my plans to full time if this is the norm. Not my cup of tea.

Yesterday I noticed a bubble on the inner wall on a G670 on right front that I have had 4 years and 8900 miles, the last 3 years not moved more that twice. Will be looking for warranty replacement. Eddie Elk.

I just replaced six Goodyear 670's with Michelin's. The 670's had well over 65K in under four years. Rivering was a problem with those tires. Out of curiosity I checked ebay and they had the right size Michelin's but were somewhat more expensive than I paid using the FMCA program.

I just got a price for 6 Michelin XRV Pilot 245/70R 19.5 Tires and the price was $2525.00 installed balanced and tax included, Is that a good price or could I do better if I joined FMCA.
I've got the Good Year G670's on now and nothing but trouble they blow the sides out of them last blowout last week on I 95 front drivers side on a Good Year 3 years old and about 18K miles.

Great price! Don't forget that you will have probably another $250-300 in mounting and balancing. All in all though a very attractive figure for replacing all six shoes.
