RV tires

Bought a "new to us" 2001 Winnebago Adventurer. Had a flat tire on the way home, and were told all 6 need replaced ASAP. Where is the best, most economical place in Central Florida to get this accomplished??? Thanks so much!!!!

St. Lucie Tire & Battery in Ft. Pierce treated us right on tires for our pickup, plus we have friends who have purchased MH tires there and are very satisfied.

What size tires are you looking for, and more exactly where in central Florida are you located?

John, Congrats on the Winne and Welcome to Irv2, It looks like you found us the same way I did, we bought a used MH and had a problem and went online searching for answers, we found Irv2 while parked in a shopping center parking lot with simple problem to solve if I had the books that came with the MH but were being mailed to me. My point is this is a great place to answer many questions you will be confronted with as you get to know your rig. I know I spent hours of reading on here, use the search tool, it's your friend. I doubt you'll have any problem with your MH that somebody here already hasn't had. Check out the Chassis section for your coach, you will be amazed at how much info you'll find, I'm sure you can dig in and not only find a place in Fla for tires but what tires are best for your coach and what kind of money they paid, it just goes on and on. This place has saved me a boat load of money just by fixing things myself that without the help from here I wouldn't have attempted. So good luck with your coach and you're in the right spot.

Welcome again,

Al

Joe & Karen,
Thanks for responding. We're in Melbourne, sorry I wasn't more specific on the location. We need 19.5 tires. Thanks for your help.

I was at the small tire shop here in Williston (Ocala area) a few weeks ago with my MH and asked them for a idea of how much it would cost to replace the 8R 19.5 Toyo tires with the same tire. They told me that the 6 Toyo tires would be around $1500 and comparable Goodyear tires would be about $1700. I actually was surprised because I was expecting to hear $2000 or more for a set of the cheaper tires.

You might try:

Glenn's Tire and Service
2726 S Harbor City Blvd
Melbourne, FL
321-723-0751

They've been in business since 1952; I had a cousin who worked for them for many years back in those days. They carry a full line of truck and specialty tires for commercial vehicles and probably have the 19.5's you need.
