New Rubber on Steer tires.

Just had new steer tires installed on the motorhome. Had 9 years on old ones and had a little wear on inside of passenger steer tire after a trip cross country. Didn't want to risk it going back across country with wear and age.
We're in CA and found an excellent place to have tires changed out. Name is Parkhouse Tire in Thousand Palms CA right off I-10 Bob Hope exit.
I was in and out in 45 minutes. Very clean shop and workers were courteous and knew what they were doing. Used Michelin Tire Advantage program through FMCA. XZA2 energy tires. That's what I had put on back in 08 and have been real happy with wear and ride so that's what I'm sticking with.
If you need tires while in this area I would recommend them. They made it easy.

Your title got me to wondering why you'd put new rubber on the tires (recaps).

Hadn't even considered recapping the tires but I guess the title could make you think that.
Hopefully anyone reading will read the rest of the post and understand.

I thought the same thing. Don't recommend recaps for steer tires!
