Great Place for RV Tires

Hello Folks

I just came back from having 6 new tires put on our 2012 Tiffin Phaeton. The company I used was Dumbaulds Tire Service is Somerset Pa. They were probable the best tire people I have ever dealt with. The gentleman that helped me was named Terry and he had me in and out in exactly 1 hour (4 guys). Very professional and knowledgeable about tires. There are several dealers closer to me but if I ever need tire service again I will skip them all and go back to Johnston. If you live anywhere in the area I would give them a chance.

The tires were Michelin 275/80R 22.5 XZE2 total cost including 6% tax was $3,643.

Not a great welcome to the site guys.

Grey Ghost, I went to the site that you recommended for tires (in a different post), simpletire.com, and looked for the tires that rgwarren718 bought. They did not sell the exact Michelin tire.

What I found were six XZE2+ load range J 275/70R - 22.5 for $4,008 delivered (I added $25 each to install). rgwarren did OK.

I just placed an order for 6 - XZA2 Energy - 275/70R22.5 LRJ to be installed at the end of this month. The dealership is getting a shipment from the factory next week so the dates should be fresh. Installation, new valve stems, spin balanced (steer tires only) all for 4,352 $Cdn this includes 13% in taxes (Federal & Provincial) and $9/tire levy. This equates to 3,385 $US at my Credit Unions rate of exchange today. Not a bad deal I thought.

RV Tires

Thank you JoeSR

Those guys were mean to me and hurt my feelings.

You made me feel much better.

Just trying to contribute to the board when I can.

Somewhat new to the RV world. The 2012 Phateon is my first RV. Talking about jumping in with both feet but I love to drive and see the country. My better half said the only way she would do it if the RV had a bath and a half and washer and dryer. Kind of puts limits on how small you can go. Was not to concerned as in my past life I drove for North American Van Lines and currently am a member of a volunteer fire department and am certified to drive the fire trucks.

If you were happy with the service, that is worth a lot, right there! There are so many dealers that do not know what they are doing when mounting and balancing tires, that, if you find a good professional shop, it is worth the extra money, and you will save in the long run by not having to do the job over again! I do not know how many post's I have read about people complaining about the service they received!
By the way, , and enjoy your new tires, and for relaying a great shop!
Thanks, Rail!

Welcome to the forum. One of the worst things you can post about it tires and tire pressure on this forum.
There are some real experts in there own minds that will express their opinions.

It sounds to me like you are happy with your purchase and got great service and advice form the shop you chose. Thats is all that matters.

Don't let the comments worry you.. They are comparing "China" bombs to the most premium tire on the market.. Are they overpriced.. Probably as I haven't had good luck with them.. (sidewall checking) but sounds to me like you did OK..
Welcome to the board and enjoy your coach... And tires..

I'd say you did very good on the price, and one can't even put a price on their professionalism. I paid about $300 less for smaller Michelins, 235/80/22.5, using the FMCA discount that saved me $100 a tire last February.

I got them at a truck tire business that only sells Michelins, so thought they knew how to mount them properly. They might do well with 18 wheelers but with RV's they were the gang that couldn't shoot straight. It would take a book to relay all of their screw-ups, but suffice it to say that my lugnuts are supposed to be torqued to 280-330 instead of 500 lbs/ft., and those guys will NEVER touch my stainless wheel covers again, NEVER. What a nightmare. The scary part is that if I hadn't been watching and asking questions of the guys installing the wheels, I'd have never known that they were way over-torquing. I'd have driven off the lot satisfied (well, except for the wheel cover issues). Don't assume any of those guys know what they're doing! The guy running the torque wrench may have been flipping burgers last week.
