New Tires

Just thought I would give the heads up to anybody thinking about new tires for their MH. Everybody is telling me there is a shortage of natural rubber due to a drought in the countries that grow it. The Chinese knew this was coming and bought up as much as they could get there hands on. Tire prices have already gone up about 10%. I was lucky to find a dealer that had a set in stock and gave them to me for the old price. So if you have been thinking about it you might want to get in the market and shop around. Our incomes stay the same but everything else goes up!

Don't you think Goodyear & Michelin saw this coming?

They should have, but I just tried to order a set of tires and they told me they were on national back order. I was told the Goodyears are up $30 more per tire. Sounds like they took a lesson from the oil companies. Raise the price and cut back on supply.

I just had 6 Toyo's put on this week, I was told that they expect a price increase in March, they didn't know how much the price was increasing.

Just replaced my MIchelin's with Toyo's. Got a good price, I guess I missed the price increase.
