Suggestions for tire rotation in North Texas

Does anyone know of a good place to take our coach to get the tires rotated in the fort Worth area? Lots of big truck service places can do front end alignment but I'm not finding any place that can rotate the tires.

Thanks

You do not show what type of MH you have, but any medium/heavy duty truck dealer or shop can do your tire rotation.


I have a Ford F53 chassis with a V10 and just picked mine up from Rush Ford (a medium/heavy duty truck dealer) in Denver. But any tire shop that deals with big
truck should be set up to do the work.


Most normal (car) tire shops are not equipped to deal with a large vehicle like a motorhome.

If your coach has 6 or more tires you do not want to rotate them. Duals need to be run in pairs and when they wear you need to keep them on the same axle. In RVing for over 50 years I have never rotated tires. Just my 02 cents worth.

Let me clarify, I had my front tires rotated side to side at 4500 miles
at the time I had an alignment done.

Yes on duals if you rotate at all you just rotate duals in pairs side to
side.

Don't bother to rotate - it is totally unnecessary on a motorhome.

That said, any large truck tire shop (commercial tire shop) will be happy to do it for you. Truck repair shops may or may not - it's just a bother to them and they would likely prefer to expend their labor on more productive (and profitable) stuff.

Cowser Tire, Wingfoot, and Ace Tire are some Ft Worth area commercial truck tire dealers with full service.

Wow thank you all so much!! As newbies we did not know that it's not necessary to rotate the tires!!! And I should have posted the coach type... It's a Winnebago Journey DP and yes it does have the duals in the back. DH will be glad he doesn't have to spend the money!!

I have a friend that has his broken down off the rim and rotated. I have talked to him but he will not change. He does it every two years. I huge waste of money in my mind but it's his to waste. Mine are due to be rotated off my rig in six years.

I have a Sprinter, Winnebago. 31 K miles-all 7 tires have been on the Front (actually all 8-if you count the 1 new Tire). I had the alignment done at about 24K, factory alignment was causing front tires to wear on the inside.

The tires are Continental, and they are smooth riding tires. Never had them rebalanced.

As long as they roll the same direction all the time, put them front or back, left or right.

Rotation cost me $25, in Stuart, Fl., have rotated 3 times-one rotate was free because I bought a tire. I always tip the Tire guys!

You can set up a signature line , so your coach info will appear below your posts automatically.
" Quick Links" drop box , below your welcome message. " Edit Signature" type in info and click save at the bottom of the page.
It'll look like mine, in this post below the line.

X2!

But if you need tire or brake work done, Cowser tire is a good place to go.
