Azloafer, if for any reason you have uneven wear (alignment) or plowing around corners and rounding off the outsize edges of the front tires or what ever the cause may be then rotating your tires will help even out the wear.

The statement that keeps coming to my mind is that most RV tires have to be replace due to aging, not mileage. If it is a strong tire and runs true does it really matter if it doesn't get as many miles?
I contacted that link and was told that their tires were dated from 2008-2009. Since they will age out before they wear out, buying a two year old "new" tire means you will only get 4-5 years life out of them. So the lower prices there really aren't cheaper if you figure $ per year of use.

I replaced Michelins with Yokohamas. They had currant date codes, are widely available, cheaper and not as prone to checking and cracking like Michelins. Love em.

A lot of people do just that. If they are too badly damaged I would feel better replacing them. I try to watch for uneven wear and catch it before it gets serious.

I've been shopping for tires too (275/70-R22.5) and had a dealer tell me truck tires will not ride as well or last as long (7 years) as tires specifically designed for motorhomes like the Goodyear G670's. Hype or fact?

Sales hype, maybe. However, Goodyear claims to have specifically developed the G670's for RV use and has included additives in the rubber to reduce the harmful effects of UV light. Since a normal big truck tire is certainly going to wear out its tread in a much shorter time than a motorhome, perhaps those tires are not designed to last as long (in terms of age of the rubber).

We've certainly been pleased with our G670's and would select them again when time to replace in 2012.

Camping World told me about getting BFG's replacement RV tires 275/80 22.5

The BFG's run $200.00 less/tire than the Goodyear G670

I have bought BFG's three times for my vehicles and do not want anything else.

Yokohamo RY-023's are a direct replacement for Michilen XZA's. THese are an "all position" tire. When I bought mine they included a 6 year warantee from date of purchase against any sidewall cracking. A whole lot cheaper then brand name Goodyears and Michilens.

Does anyone have experience with the Hankook tire? A local shop quoted their AH 11 (steer) 295 80R22.5 at $300 each.
