Amen brother, to a point.

Those tires on the Flintstone mobile won't blow out, but dang, they ride rough. Conversly, some squishy trailer tires certainly won't work for long, you'll end up upside down in a ditch with a pissed off wife. Careful consideration with an abundance of knowledge and research is in order. First and foremost, you gota know your weights.

I think 'UV protection' is such a joke on tires. I haven't seen any tire that won't hold up 6-7 years after which you are a FOOL if you continue to drive on them. Any minor surface cracking that appears within that time has NO effect on the tire's safety. Tires older than 6-7 years are dangerous and have killed/injured many people. If you can afford a motorhome, you can sure as *ell afford good, fresh tires.
