Please help! Rialta Tire Blowout

Hello!

This is my first time posting in the forum, we just bought our Rialta yesterday!

We're in Goodyear Arizona on our way back to California and a rear tire blew out. Is any light truck tire ok? Is there any way any place we can get tires on a Sunday?

Thanks so much in advance,

Robin

I found some

Sorry for the panic post. First RV and first tire blowout! I had the understanding these were impossible to find.

Very nice to meet all of you.

A little more information would help. What size tire? Was this a used unit and how old were the tires? What was the air pressure?

If so the ad says that they would put on new tires. Did you check to see if they did (we're they really new) and if they aired them up correctly. I would call the dealer (might be open on Sunday) and see if he can give you some guidance.

Tires for a Rialta used to be very hard to find and when I had mine in 2001, the only brand you could find were Continental. Things may have changed. The problem is the load factor. Somewhere in the Rialta there should be a sticker stating the proper tire ratings.

Thanks, all! This was a 1998 I bought inTucson. He said he put new tires on the front but they were 12 years old. Caveat emptor. And the one that failed was in the rear. So we're getting 4 new tires all around.

It was just a very scary thing. But we should be on the road by noon tomorrow. Woo hoo!

This is such a great group. I've learned a lot from all the wonderful posts here. Many thanks to you all.

Happy trails,

Robin

Just be sure you check the load ratings on the tires being put on. Glad to know you found some so soon. We had some good times in the one we had.

As referenced above, Rialta tires are very, very difficult to find because they are odd sizes. The front and rear call for different sizes. I'd be wary that whoever you bought it from had 4 of these guys just laying around! Caveat emptor.

Vestadave,

I don't remember them being different sizes on the VW based units, but I do believe the rears were not lined up behind the fronts causing some interesting times in rutted roads.

By any chance, did you stay in Catalina State Park last night after buying it? We saw a Rialta drive by our site.

Thanks for the advice. I feel very comfortable with this Firestone store. They looked at the load rating and it's all good. 195/70 in front and 215/70 in the rear.

We slept in Marana. We slept really well for our first night as official RVers.

We had a 2002 and yes, larger Continentals in the rear. I don't recall the actual size but we played heck trying to get them. Located them at the Winnebago dealer in Forest City. Indeed, I remember the ruts too. Overall though I really liked the unit a lot.
