Tires & The Dealership

Good Afternoon Members,

I was told, the dealership I'm purchasing my used motor home from, is obligated to replace tires over 5years old.
This is from my neighbor who's been a long time motor home owner. Since we are new at this and before I make a fuss I thought I'd investigate a little further.

True or False?

Ty!

The only obligation is if it negotiated in the purchase agreement, or is warranted to be newer tires. The tires are not a law of any type.
Best of luck on your purchase.

It's a good idea to replace older tires. Some folks say 5 years, others 7, and some stretch it out to 10 (the max life that most tire makers claim). But as trikeleader says, there is no obligation on the sellers part to do anything about it, especially if it's an "as is" sale.

If older tires by date you can try to negotiate new set into the deal. Be aware the dealer may out on the cheapest tire he possibly can... so best to agree, in writing, on the brand.

I'll agree with this. Great idea.

Another idea is to negotiate the selling price DOWN to compensate for replacing the tires. Then, after purchase, you replace the tires with exactly what you want. This may be a bit more work, but if the dealer does not want to put what you want on the RV, then this may be an option.

Just, don't ride on old tires. It is not IF they will give up, it is WHEN. Well, that's my opinion. Best of luck!
