Pulled in for fuel with Annie behind me. Of course the truck lane pump didn't want my card so Annie ran in and I ran back and got one side hooked up. She came out and said it should go now. So I started the pump and ran back and did the other side and hooked up the the brakes and electric. Ran back to the pump in time to see it stop on $100.

We had some wind on 10 and 202 but were driving out of the rain so no biggie. Looking forward to looking around.

Don't forget to compare weight ratings between your existing tire load ratings and anything you are considering. Don't want to create an overloaded tire situation if you are close to your axle weights, especially the front.

Steve, you are too kind. As you know, Mutant ohmmmmms are the most powerful of any ohmmmmmms. Right knee is on the fast track for healing. I see no reason we can't launch this adventure by March 27 or 28.

Steve didn't you recently replace tires on Bonita? If so what did you go with!

Anyone else want to add an opinion feel free!
Papa Steve what brand was it you had such wonderful luck with?

I think your Curtis 129 is my Curtis 127 which I have listed. In either case, I think we're talking about the same mutant.

In my crazy tire adventures in Utah and Washington, I have ended up with 2 255/70R/22.5 tires by Falken on the front (635 total) and 4 255/70R/22.5 tires by Samson on the rear (1,741 total). All came highly recommended by each of the dealers. In truth, it's the best that each had. LOL.

I will not buy another Michelin RV tire. Their availability at any given time (especially summer travel time) seems to be very iffy. Finding a match for their funky sizing is near impossible. You can get close with another brand that you find in Watchamacallit, Idaho but it won't be a match for Michelin's sizing.

It's interesting, there are lots of threads on tires, pro, con or indifferent. But when I settled on the Hankook's to replace the Goodyear's, I got 6, 275/70 x 22.5 for $3000.00 in Tucson. They were $1200 cheaper than Michelin's, and $2200 cheaper than Bridgestone's. I don't know what kind of breaks you get from the FMCA deal but I was satisfied with what I was able to negotiate.
