Tyron & Enviroshield

Hello All!
In the process of ordering our new RV the dealer has offered the 2 above options. A search of Enviroshield (interior protection and external polymer coating) offers very little info. Tyron (flat tire protection) search info is all a year or more old...sounds good but EXPENSIVE!
Normally, I'm very skeptical of these dealer add-on's but I would like to hear from anyone with any knowledge that may be helpful. Thanks

We have the Tyron bands on ours. The theory is good behind them, but like insurance I hope to never have to put them to the test. Noel

Two excellent products designed to separate the new owner from his money.

Both items are expensive and even on high end coaches is a waste of money. Get more info before you buy these items.

I think the Tyron bands is an excellent option. Real protection when a tire blows out.
How much do they want for this option?

According to dealer 365/70R 22.5" tires require 2 bands each. Their price is a breathtaking $2500 US. Don't know how negotiable that is, but, as someone has stated previously, dealer add-ons are usually so overpriced that they have lots of room to move on the price and still make good money. Another concern is tire service down the road. I called my local Goodyear dealer and he didn't know anything about it. They've been around for years. If they're so good why aren't they more common?
Thanks everyone for the input.
