Hi Kirby,

I have been using Armor-all tire protectant for years and never had a problem with it drying out. Once in awhile I use Meguiers Tire Stuff too.

303 Protectant has a problem and that is it washes off with rain or water as I used to use it on my decals on the RV and all it did was run when it rained.

I have tried a lot of tire protectants and Armor-all has worked the best and none of my tires ever dried out.

Lastly I will say to each his own. Use whatever you think is best for your rig but Armor-all was MY opinion.

Enjoy!

Hi! I've gotten my tires, and stayed with the Michelin's XRV's = got a good price on them with reputable local tire place that I have used many years. On their paperwork it says to have the lug nuts tightened after 50 miles, which is kind of a pain. When I called today, they said that's a standard item with tires, but not to worry because we have steel, versus aluminum. We leave next weekend for a 1500+ mile trip,and DH wants to take the rig out today to do the 50, and then I have to bring it up to the dealership next week (another pain).

Can anybody back me up that we don't need the lug nuts tightened and for DH not to worry about it? Thank you!

Thank you for the update and as your dealer said that statement is a standard CYA for just about all tire dealers worth their salt.

A very good protectant (we use it on nuclear submarine rubber parts) is Age-Master #1. By Test, it improves ozone protection by at least 100%. It is permanent.

PS I'm not talking about the Goodyear product.

First if you are going to stay with Michelin go to a Truck Center that sells to RVers.
Ask for a quote from Michelin's National Account Program for RVs. We just got 6 new 275/70 R 22.5 for $434.08, MRSP $722.21 every thing else is up to you to get best deal from tire Company.
We used Turbo Truck Center in Gainesville, GA

Michelin is also offering a rebate on 4 tires, so that was nice!
