In fact, Larry has set up and taken diwn in the rain every step we have come this trip....

We will be putting new tires on Bow's front feet next month. I'm thinking Hancock or Toyo. The tires on the front now are 2013 Michelins and have no cracking. They'll move to the rear, replacing older, outside tires. Seems that the newest tires should go on the front. Correct, guys?

Nothing against Michelin, just think they are too expensive. I'm reading the things you guys are saying about tires and heeding the advice.

You are correct the two new tires would go on the front and the two old front tires would go on one side, together and not one on each side, of the rear.
Replace the one good rear to the other side rear to replace the bad one.
Assuming that the wear is fairly equal on the fronts and the wear on the good rear ones are fairly equal.

Does that make sense? (does to me, but hey, its' me)

Barb here's a chart for the beads and amount per tire size:
Equal Balancing Beads Tire Chart

Appears your tire/wheel combination would take 4 oz. per tire/wheel. Best to buy as a kit so you get the filtered valve cores and colored caps.

These aren't Equal brand but they are similar to give you an idea on the cost: 4 oz. 4 pak kit

Yep, Sir Wayne, that makes sense. You know we trust you. You sat on our sofa. Speaking of ... we're thinking about sitting on your sofa sometime later this year. Not sure, but maybe early December? We'll be coming across the southland in November and December. Might stay the winter in the San Antonio area, or maybe on the coast somewhere. Haven't really started planning that far out.

We've got to be in Austin in time for Christmas 2016 with our grands. #2 is due any minute now!!! Mom and Dad are not saying whether we are going to be blessed with another dgd or will have our first dgs. Does not matter either way to us. We will do our job and spoil them properly - girl or boy!

At any rate, I'm hoping you can recommend a good RV Park in your area where we can spend a week in early December, 2016. This is just an idea right now. Lots of time to make a plan.
