I agree with everyone's comment regarding tire condition - don't go far. Also, regarding tire cleaning - 303 (can't remember mfr[sr moment]), also known as 'suntan lotion for plastic and rubber', is the only product Michelin doesn't ban from use on their tires. it gives a nice 'glow' to the tires, not a bright shine. Bob Livingston (ex editor Motorhome mag) did a long term test and feels it reduced sidewall cracking on the CA sun. I use it on tires, slide seals, skylights, roof, etc.

thx


Markka... The tire make is Yokohama and the model is RY103. It was the right front steer tire. They are 4 years old with about 25k miles on them. They are wearing nicely and the remaining tires all look good. The faulty tire has been replaced.

WOW, only 4 yrs.old and that happened? And on the right steer! The steers are the most important tires and yeah I agree with others. I would replace both front steers "el pronto" with a fresh set of Toyo's if that was my coach. You can get those for about $800 or so out the door.

In addition to the Standard Limited Warranty coverage, some Yokohama steel-belted radial tires purchased in the continental United States as replacement tires only are warranted for treadwear during a limit of five years (60 months) from the installation date.

Looks like someone might have ran over a curb and the rim cut the tire, possibly. Anyway get it replaced.

No guess needed, it will eventually blow. The only question is when. Probably on an rainy night on a two lane road right over the top of a hill 100 miles from anywhere.



Replace the tire.

If you have a good tire guy, Iím 99% sure this nothing but a little rubber left over from the mold. This the strongest part of the tire. I have never seen or heard of a tire coming apart in this area except retreads....if you keep track of the date of manufacture youíll e fine, tread means nothing, all that maters is time and sun, in the normal life of a tire......do you know how to read the date off the tire .?

Wow, That's sad. Do you use tire covers? It's a religion with me using em except for overnite stops as UV's a killer of tires. Happy travels on your new tires.

Not safe! RV tires usually go bad from exposure before they show minimum tread depth. When you get new tires, try using wheel covers when you're parked.
