Dsilva,

Guess you got up on the wrong side of the bed. I don't rotate tires on my engine. I often do on my vehicle. I was really suggesting that this is an engine forum and tire questions should be posted to the motorhome forum.

Paul, my point is, that some people make mistakes as was pointed out by several others. Then u an a couple of others scold him for what could be a mistake. That can be intimidating to the newer members who r struggling with posting.I know because I am still struggling.As for what u say to me, I'll just take that with a grain of salt.

This is a friendly forum, who cares where an Op comes for advice.....As for rotating tires on my 5er? Probably won't have too before the tire times out after 7 years. But more importantly is before a trip check the condition of the tire and maintain the correct air pressure. I bought a portable single tank DeWalt compressor which is a low profile model that fits easily into my basement and allows me to fill the tires when need...Now I hope I don't get blasted for goin off topic.....

Thanks Myway09 for the post. I had the same question. I did not notice what forum this was posted in until someone brought it to my attention. I will try to be more observant.

I usually don't even at look what sections a post is in. If I can help answer the question, I will do so. What flavor whine do some of you want?

I tried to make a light hearted point that I don't rotate tires on my engine.

You tend to get responses based on who monitors the thread. I look at the Class A thread and the Monaco thread most, and occasionally the Cat and Road Master thread.

This is because there is much less activity on the engine and chassis threads, mostly cause engines and chassis give you the least trouble on a MH, but when a good question shows up there you can learn a lot.

One thing about rotating tires on a MH, you pretty much need to dismount and re-mount as the wheels are not the same. Typically the inside drive is steel, the outer is aluminum. Both the tag (if you have one) and the outer drive rim are revered compared to the steer, and usually the inside (meaning the convex side) is pitted.

Yes to rotating tires on TTs or 5ers, no to rotating them on a MH.

With ST tires, my experience is, you don't get a chance to rotate them before they throw rubber or explode doing minor to massive damage.

I believe the cost of dismounting, mounting, and balancing would not be cost effective. Watch for uneven wear, investigate and correct the problem. The only time I rotate my tires is when I'm rolling. I too don't pay attention to where a question is posted, I look at the question.
