Only Michelins tires for me.

Tire Question? Now hold the laughing

I am going in this week for new tires. The present tires, Michelins 235/80 22.5 XRV have been great. Best ride I have ever had in a gas RV. No cracks, No sign of wear over 45,000 miles. Had them inspected annually last 5 years. A little soap and water---they really look like new.

It is a shame to trash these tires.

I will keep one for a spare unmounted. Only problem was I bought them 12 years ago, came on the coach when new. Even my tire guy last inspection thought they looked way too good for the 2004 date code.

Should I try listing them on Craig's List.

I felt like some one stabbled me with a knife when I replace my Michelins that looked brand knew when they aged out of the program. 60 K and still years and years of tread left. But,,,,,I felt alot safer with the new ones.

I would sell them on Craigslist. I have sold multiple sets of pull off tires there. Usually get $50-100 each tire, condition depending.

I would not keep one as a spare. I would buy another new one as the spare.

IMHO.

Let me get this straight, you would sell a tire that you would not keep as a spare?????

I knew somebody would ask. (-:

Yes I would. My usage requirements may well, and likely do, differ from those of those who would be buying such tires.

The truck tire shop I bought my tires from gave me a $100. per tire for my 9 year old Goodyears.
They make great farm truck tires.

When I replaced my Michelins, the tire shop gave me a 100 bucks per tire also. Michelin retreads them for use as trailer tires. Can't sell them for the tractor but fine for the trailer.

How do the inspect them? Just look at the outside for cracks? How do the know what's happening on the inside? Mine look like new on the outside and local tire shop said they looked good and I still went BOOM.

Your subject caught my attention..
I am looking to replace my 5 year old 295 80 R22.5 Michelin's due to extreme sidewall checking.. Michelin says "Cosmetic" I say unsafe.. I will put a knife through the sidewalls as I don't want anyone else to take a chance with these pieces of Junk.. The most expensive on the market the worst product!

YES!

Sell them on Craigslist. Depending on the size they should get about $100 per tire. Most truckers will use them on their trailers. They will NOT use them on their steers or tractor.

Do not listen to the naysayers.

If someone calls in regards to using them on any vehicle besides a trailer then they obviously do not have a CLUE about these tires.

rhusak; I just had Michelin replace all 6 of my 5 year old 275x80 22.5's due to sidewall cracking. I think a lot of if Michelin will replace them under warranty comes down to the tire shops info they give Michelin. I told my tire shop that I'd taken 1 of my DW's pointed metal finger nail files, marked it at 3/23's of an inch (this is the point that Michelin calls the cracks unsafe) and had found numerous cracks that were this deep and deeper. He passed that info along with cell phone pics, and Michelin approved my claim.

I would be making a phone call to the Michelin warranty line.. I just had all 6 of my tires replaced (XRV) with new ones.. I got an 80% warranty credit from Michelin... the date code on my tires were 2611...

Those cracks aren't "cosmetic".. they are warrantable !!

I sold my old tires on Craigslist. A guy that owns several trucks bought them for trailer use. He was happy and I got $800 for them. They only had 25000 miles on them. They were 9 years old. Michelin XZE.
