Newbie's first post

Hello to all. I have been reading a lot on this site and am greatful for all the great information I am hoping for some advise we have a 2006 Intruder with original tires 235/80r22.5 xrv Michelin I am planing to replace with the same the dealer recommends to only balance the front tires. Says the weight of the coach would keep the rear from any vibration. I would appreciate any thoughts from this group. Thanks in advanceDave

First off

Secondly, there is another area on this site that discusses your question;

New tires - balance rear duals?

Happy RVing!

Welcome to the forum. It may cast a couple dollars, but I would make sure that ALL the tire are properly balanced. You should also consider a front end allignment when the new tires are installed. Your dealer should also fill the tires to the pressures on the tire mfg.'s charts for the weight carried, not necessarily the pressure stamped on teh tire sidewall.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I wish you a speedy recovery from the pain of having to pay for six new Michelins.....But, we all have to do it every now and then.

Best of luck

It the parts go round and round, they need to be balanced.

May I sugest that yo also invest in a set of Centramatic Wheel balancers for your rig. this will save you haeart ache of rebalancing the tires when they pickup a rock and get worn.

I had the 235/80r22.5 xrv Michelin's on my 05 when I purchased it, changed them with Toyo M154 245/75 22.5 last year, balanced all 6 with Dyna Beads and had the front end alignment last year, so far I'm happy with my purchase. Do a search on the WorkHorse Chassis Form for more info. I think they recommend increasing the caster to make it track better, you can call Brazel's and they will enlighten you.
