aint that the truth.. if everyone would just research Generals as one of the oldest makers and the innovations that every other company followed and the quality and price.. there wouldn't be any debate..

At least we all agree that Fat Tire IPA is the best beer!

Since we're on the subject of tires... What kind of adapter is needed to add air to the inner rear tires? I can get my pressure gauge in ok to check pressure, but can't get an air chuck in. Ideas? Advice?

a tag is the additional rear axle on some coaches.
You can get a valve stem extension that screws on the valve stem at most auto parts stores. Stainless is best.

Now, my tire input.
I just replaced 6 nearly perfect 265/75R22.5 Toyos on my coach this week because of their age.
I went back with Toyos again.
I found the best price through simpletire.com.
They took a week to get in, and had a date code of 7/17.
In case it matters to anyone, they were made in Japan not China.

I got 'em! (Falken RI151 225 70R19.5). I think they look great.

$250 ea. fully mounted and high-speed balanced after some wheeling & dealing (pun intended) with my local tire guy.

I'll report on their performance when I actually get the rig on the road in 2018.
