Thanks, I thought because of the size, the bungee, cord might not be used.

Unless you crawl underneath the coach to get the inside of the tires, including the duals, I see no practical value for applying anything to the tires. I "dress" my tires up with 303-- It just gives me a warm fuzzy to have "pretty wheels".

I saw some interesting tire covers a couple of days ago ...they were black, but they had a circle of see-through mesh in the center so basically the solid part was keeping sun off the tires, but you could still see the wheels through the mesh part. Interesting ...guess that's a way to show off your shiny wheels??

Here is the MSDS for SunBlock For Tires. Note that its main ingredient is VM&P Naptha (or naphtha) which is a petroleum distilate.

Any product that turns a tire blacker also causes the tire to adsorb more UV rays and heat. Tire dealers in desert areas often will tell you not to use these products on new tires. Use a cover.

Just picked up the genuine Michelin tire care system. Called 3 in 1 tire care. Going to try it out this afternoon. I spent weeks finding it at a tire retailer in Altadena Ca. We will see what the tires look like in five years in the So. Cal. heat and smog.

Michelin tires also seem to crack more than other tire brands.

In a recent seminar from the Michelin Man himself, Keith Bradford, he told us that Michelin XRV tires are specially formulated with chemicals that resist the effects of the sun. When parked for a few weeks I use my Prompt sunscreens that were made for covering the tire wheel wells. This helps I believe as my tires are wearing well. One thing I don't like using on my tires if I can prevent it is tire dressings.

I don't expect that Michelins will crack any more than any other RV tire or commercial tire.

i was told by michelin not to use any kind of tire protectant. he said this is what causes cracking and deterioration of tires before their time.. he said keep clean with mild soap and water. not dish washing detergent and rinse well and use tire covers. walter

The Michlin man didn't recommend his company's product?

The 303 Aerospace Protectant is a water based product. I have used a bunch of the other oil based tire sprays in the past. They look good for a week, but turn a brownish color after that, forcing you to re-apply even more. In the spring I bought 4 new tires for my trailer and wanted to try a better tire spray. A fellow IRV2'er suggested 303. It's a little $$$, but works so much better. It will last for a few weeks without re-appling more. RVupgrades.com sells 303.

As far as my slide and door seals I use silicon spray. I spray everything down about once a month. On my slide seals I'll spray some on my fingers and pull back the rubber to get some on both sides. After 5 years they look brand new.
