New member - tires

Hello everyone ..... Looking forward to participating in the various forums. I recently purchased a 2001 Georgie Boy Landau with less than 20000 miles. It will be a bit of a project but I am looking forward to remodeling. The tires on this unit are over 13 yrs old so this is the first thing I need to address. A friend recommended Samson Long Haul tires. This is a brand I am not familiar with. Does anyone have any experience with Samson tires?

Thanks for your help/

I have no experience with Samson. Might I suggest using the irv2 search box at the top of this page. Much has already been said about tires for an RV. You will find "which tire" has as many answers as which motor oil, which chassis, gas or diesel, etc. Happy Reading!

Welcome and glad to meet you!

FMCA has discounts on Michelin for members. You might want to check.

I have also read many good things about Toyo tires.

I'm not very helpful, my vehicles once off OEM they get Michelin's slapped on them. One thing I know is that a new tire is better then an old one. Get the best tire you can but any new tire is better. A cheap tire ius not always the best value.

Here on cars some people don't get winters arguing double the expense. I point out your summer tires do not accumulate mileage during the winter, last I checked most cars only use on set of tires at a time. Rant over.

Welcome to the forums at enjoy and stay awhile.

BTW we got 20cm of snow accumulated yesterday, feel better?

Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join the gang!

Congrats on the new rig! I'm sorry but I don't know anything about those tires. Hope everything works out for you! Enjoy the forum!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
