Hello All! Hope everyone had a great winter.
Well, to complete this thread, well, maybe not complete it but update it with a decision I'm about to make on tires.
I've looked and researched and 'think' I've decided on these tires for my Rexhall 32' Class A motor home:
Hercules H-901 - 235/85 R16
Here's a link to the info: Hercules News : Hercules Introduces New H-901 All Steel Commercial Light Truck Tire: Heavy-duty tire is latest in H-Series medium truck line-up
This is a 14 ply tire so I'm hoping the ride will be okay. Since it's so new I am having a hard time finding any reviews of it. If ANYONE you know has heard anything good or bad please let me know as I'm planning on ordering these on Monday, the 21st.
The good news is my local tire shop here in Spokane, Perfection Tire, has them right in town! And of course I've asked them to check the DOM code on them to be sure they are as new as possible. I wonder if they would order newer ones if these are too old? Oh, and what is too old? 6 Months? 1 Year? In my mind, if they are 3 months old then that's okay....right? And all the date codes have to match. (See I'm learning!)
So thanks for everyone's input and I will respond to the other items I've asked about (gas gauge, fridge, etc) when I get to them.
I do love the community here and greatly appreciate everyone's input!
Oh..as far as price, on-line those tires are $162.99 a piece and shipping was $169, so it comes out to $1146.92 if I order on-line and then who knows how much for mounting and balancing them. Through Perfection, out the door price is $1356.00 for 6 of them, so the difference is $210 which when you figure having to pay for mounting and balancing them, it's pretty much a wash and I wanted to pay back the local shop for their great service to me and my 3 kids who have used them for various issues.
So all in all, I'm happy....as long as the 14 ply tire gives us a good ride.
