I don't see a way to specify the number of tires needed or a way to at least specify a range of acceptable mfg dates. but the real issue for me is finding a local installer. they want all sorts of personal information before they will show me who my local installer is....might not be anyone near me or a shop I've done business with that I wouldn't want to do business with again. interesting concept but it's not for me.

me? I'd keep shopping. I don't think I'd do biz with CW on such a big ticket item like tires but there are a lot of RV tire dealers out there. to me it's worth extra $ to deal face-to-face with a reputable business instead of a mouse click and a toll free phone number. good luck.

Have you looked at simpletire.com? Same concept, though most people find their own local installer. Simple Tire has a decent reputation.


If buying tires online, make sure you add up all taxes, fees, local disposal costs, shipping, install & balance before deciding the discount price will save you money. I've looked into it a couple times and each time I was saving only a few dollars per tire vs my local truck tire dealers pricing. It simply wasn't worth the hassle. Your mileage may vary...

looks like you have to find your own installer. seems like a lot of hassle.

Maybe, maybe not. In some areas truck tire dealers seem quite willing to mount and balance tires bought elsewhere; in other areas not so much. The dealer may even be willing to let you have the tires shipped direct to his shop. I found a willing shop on my first phone inquiry. I asked if they would do that and he responded with the price per tire, either with or without Equal bead balancing. No hassle at all.

I also asked the same shop for a quote on the tire size I wanted and he offered two brand choices, one the same as I priced at Simple. His price was just $22 more for two tires than my bottom line dealing with Simple + paying for local installation. I didn't hesitate minute and accepted his deal.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Just noticed you are kinda new on IRV2 and wanted to say hello! Others have pretty much stated my opinion.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
