I just purchased a 2005 Class C "Aspect" model (26') with 14,000 miles on it. Unfortunately, it sat in outside RV storage for the past year. Today, I went in for an oil change and the mechanic pointed out tiny hairline cracks in the sidewalls and recommended I replace the tires. They are Michelin 225/75/R16. The mechanic recommended I go with a Cooper tire since I reside in a hot dry climate (Southern Utah)and the Cooper tire has softer rubber than the Michelin and will hold up better. Any ideas or recommendations? Also,why would I neede new tires if the sidewall cracks are barely noticable (hairline)?
