Tires

Put six new Goodyears on the coach yesterday and was impressed how these two guys worked as a team and got it done so quickly and thoroughly. I was trying to post a few photos but could not figure how to resize them and found nothing telling me how to do it. Funny thing is I have posted them in the past.
Anyway the new skins ride so smooth and we are soon to be off to parts unknown

Doc, who was the tire dealer? Did you have to wait for your size to come in or did they them in stock?

We bought them from Athens Commercial Tire. This is one of several stores owned by Atlanta Commercial Tires. They had them in stock in the Atlanta store (several in the metro Atlanta area) Their manufacture date was the 23rd week of this year. The techs who installed them said I could have gone for a while longer, but I knew they were 8 years old and did not want one blowing some place in Texas with nothing between me and Mexico but a shallow river.
Those eight year old tires had no hairline cracks like the Michelins we had on a previous coach. This coach is always parked inside a shed, out of the sun when we are not traveling and the jacks are always down taking most if the weight off them. We park on crusher run gravel
Size is 295/80R/22.5 G670RV

Google photo resize and there are a few free apps that work very well.

They also manage meta data in the photos too.

Had my Michelin XRV's installed by an Atlanta Commercial Tire outlet in July also.

Michelins are over rated and over priced. Wouldn't have them on a kids go cart.

Love Michelin's. Been driving on various Michelin tires for fifty years.

Fantastic ride and never a tire failure.

Wouldn't put anything else on my motorhome.

Cheers!

Maybe you'd feel better on this Michelin?



Or this one?



Or maybe this one?



Of course, none of the pictures above prove anything. We don't know how any of these tires were maintained or driven, and we don't know how old they were. But make no mistake, any tire can fail. If you think your Michelins make you invincible, you are sadly mistaken.

Pretty sure they are to big for a go kart.

The tire on the bottom with all the side cracks looks just like the Michelins that was on my previous coach. Blew a side wall out pulling off a ramp to the a FlyingJ in Columbia SC

Got rid of my Michelins and went with Goodyear 661s and love them! Much better feel and ride, and no cracks.
