Demand that they start over. If you ordered a certain size, that is what you should get. If there is some problem with that size, they should have consulted with you on what to do differently. And no, receiving a 3+ year old tire as "new" isn't acceptable.

Why in heavens did you go to an RV place for tires? Excessively high pricing, no tire knowledge, and this sort of shenanigans is all too common. If you need tires, go to a tire shop. And specify what you want, including an acceptable age.

Take it back. This time specify you want tires manufactured in the last year and the size you ordered in writing. This is just another thread that tells me never go close to a camping world.

Ditto above...TAKE THEM BACK!!!! Tire balancing will be your next issue...if they get pissed off at you they may mess that up as well. Road test it and BE SURE it's right...tires are your life...bad one's not properly done can do you in.
Better to schedule tire work at a proper place..in advance. My dealer left my all rear tires at 65psi...30 short of suggested psi.

I was very disappointed to learn that Tire Rack does not carry tires for Class A motor homes (at least not our size - 22.5 inch). Does anyone know of another good discounter to deal with when buying tires? With car tires, Tire Rack will ship them to any merchant you want and you can them have them mounted, balanced, etc.

The FMCA national account deal with Michelin makes them much more affordable. Otherwise just look for commercial tire shops. The tire business has pricing that is all over the place. If you go in& personally talk up a sales or store mgr, he might sell you tires at a better level. Theses guys have a lot if pricing latitude.

Even though it might take a 'special order' at the large truck tire dealer that I use, they know what they are doing and I am willing to wait.
Good to hear the CW will take a look at the issue, but they were way out of line to install the tires that they did. Do not give in and let them provide something that is not correct or current date.

Steve haven't you been reading the notorious posts about Michelin sidewall cracks.
(IMO, recommending Michelin tires is a dis-service to other RVers).

If they do not make it right, simply charge back the transaction assuming that you used a credit card to make the payment.

Document the age of the tires and the size installed vs. what you ordered/requested.

You should receive full credit back to your account. Camping World knows this so hopefully they will remove and replace the old and incorrect size tires on your unit.

The only reason I bring this up is that CW told you they would get back to you vs. correcting the problem on the spot when you returned to their shop.

I have seen about 100 posts from you on the subject. I don't blame you for being upset by your experience but I have had a completely different experience. My steer tires are Michelin 315/80R22.5. They are approaching their 7th birthday. The sidewalls are completely free of cracks. There are many Michelin's in RV service that have given service like mine.

I have no particular loyalty to Michelin as I have Bridgestones on my drive & tag axles. I'll be in the market for steer tires in the next year or so. I will shop for the best price among 3 or4 major manufacturers.

I make my recommendations based on my experiences not yours.
