Tyron Multiband

Does anyone have information on where the Tyron Multiband can be purchased? Preferably in the San Antonio or Yuma area.

In a different thread, the OP became dissatisfied with the difficulty of finding tire shops that would work on his tires with Tyron's installed. He removed them and listed them in our classified section. I think his tire size is 275R70/22.5.

Removing my Tyron bands

When I purchased my coach last year, I learned I had inherited six Tyron bands on my 22.5 inch tires. I felt pretty good after researching what they are and how they work. However, I just had the two front bands removed and I will be selling them in the classifieds. Here's why...

The issue I found is finding qualified service. I tried to put new front tires on in Phoenix earlier this year, but I couldn't find a qualified garage in the area. I called the US distributor in Florida to find service centers in CA or OR. Besides being rude and trying to make me feel guilty for interrupting his day, he would not provide a list of qualified garages (you'll notice the supplier list is password protected on the Tyron/US website). He told me to choose one city and then he would provide the closest service center (ugh!). I selected Eugene OR, since we were heading here for the summer. "Call Camping World" was his response before hanging up on me. So, I called Camping World, talked to the service manager, he never heard of them.

I took my coach to Kaiser Brake & Alignment in Eugene. They have seen Tyron bands before, but they don't have the special "spider" tool needed for putting tires on wheels that have the bands. They tried to get the tool from the same guy in Florida several years ago, but ran into the same attitude I did. Kaiser said they could install my new tires with the bands left on but, without the tool, it would costs me 3 hrs of labor per wheel.

I had to weigh the safety value versus the service issues and costs. My wife and I decided to have Kaiser remove the front bands; the rear bands will be coming off when we change out the rear tires in a few years.

Note: I'm not trying to persuade anyone against using Tyron bands, plenty of people and organizations use them, and many swear by them. Mostly I want you to be aware of the service issues I had and suggest researching this for yourself before investing in them.

I too inherited Tyron bands I discovered when having front tires installed. Tire shop had never seen them before, tire guy went to his tool box, got the right size Allen wrench, straightened it in a vice put it in his cordless drill and removed them. Installed new tires and reinstalled the Tyron's, easy peasy. Just depends on how skilled your tire guy is. At least 6 months later I was looking through one of the boxes of manuals that came with my coach and there was the Tyron tool. A straight Allen wrench that would hook to a ratchet for easy removal. I don't see them as a problem. JMO Randy
