When to Replace Tires?

My 2017 Tiffin Wayfarer has the original tires with 35,000 miles on them. One of the six has a slow leak, and I am awaiting news on repair.

Given their age, should I replace them all immediately? Or can I get more mileage out of them?

Rv tires age out before the wear out due to mileage. There is a DOT date code on the sidewall of your tires. It shows year and week of manufacturer. Most recommend replacing tires between 5 - 7 years after manufacture. Some extend this as far as 10 years, but for safety I think the consensus is 5 - 7.

On your 2017, you likely have a 2016 chassis with tires date coded during 2016 as well.

My 2017 Winnebago has 2016 date codes and I plan to replace them this year.

Creative,

An exemplary and objective reply. Serendipitous that we have parallel RV scenarios which makes your insight all the more pertinent.

This repair turned out to require a valve stem replacement. I will be pricing tires at Costco soon.

I'm going with Toyo's to replace my Michelins. Michelin's 255/80 sizing is unique to them. I"m getting 265/75 M154 Toyos. Or at least I plan to.

Though... I have 22.5" tires. So, no Costco for me. I have to go to a Truck Tire Center.

Like mentioned 5-7 years. I replaced mine last year with toyos much better ride IMHO and less expensive. It's a tough call some say check the thread and sidewalls inside and out for and cracking or dry rot. Of course this doesn't mean you can't get a flat or worse yet a blowout but having a good working TPMS also helps.
