New Tires

Looks like we are getting closer, just received this from my tire guy.

We are all set as far as the adjs. go...All I need is the actual tires to send in and we're all set..Did we decide on which tire and size we were going to go with?...I currently have in stock both Yokohama and Goodyear in stock in the 275/70r22.5 size...The yokos are too old for you ( late 2013 ) but the goodyear ( G-661 HSA) are 45th week of 2015...they are 18 ply and will carry all the weight you need..please see attached


https://www.goodyeartrucktires.com/t...75618433700000

the stated weight capacity is 6940 lbs on single at 130 lbs and 5395 on duals at 130 lbs

Actual capacity @ 120 LBS is slightly less but you should still have plenty to spare

cost on the goodyear is 496. & 32.51 fet & labor to mt & balance ( $50.00 per tire)
According to one of the stickers you sent me, the spec'd tire is different on the steers than on the drives...Is this how you want to do this.?..this would ruin any possibility of rotation from drives to steers.
Give me a call and let me know how you're leaning...I haven't looked into Michelin..usually they're cost prohibitive ...I can get you anything..just let me know.
Hope you had a nice holiday.

I have asked for a clarification on the price. I do not understand "cost on the goodyear is 496. & 32.51 fet & labor to mt & balance ( $50.00 per tire)"

What are your Tire recommendations?

The recommendation from Gillig is to run the largest tire I can.

I would think that would be the size currently on the motor home (295/70/22.5), do you agree?.

I would like to be able to rotate.

I do not want to skimp, nor do I want to just throw money at a name.

Be cautious on size and keep in mind that H tires are for very heavy loads.
I've always run G's - nice smooth ride .
Look at 275/80 R 22.5 's perfect size and smooth ride with or without the trailer . JMO !

Baby has new shoes (Tires)

Not as bad as it looks, the old tires were defective and are being sent back to Samson for adjustment.

RV is now over at Freightliner for Vehicle inspection, and to have the U-Joints replaced
