Saving tire money


Been trying to save some money for future tire purchase
from my part time job. But it seems that the MH is costing
more than I expected at times (new RV guy on the block).

Hope to turn the corner soon. Any of this sound familiar?
Thanks for all the past help on these forums!

PS: I said to the wife. " No! I'm not selling my 74 Merc!

Tires is about the most costly item of routine maintenance. Just had to do brake job on mine and still only cost the same as a couple of tires.

However tires is one of the biggest safety items, so don't cut any corners here.

I don't know what year your Flair is but when we first got out 1999 Tradewinds we had a list of things to do after every trip. Some were big and some were little. It settled down, or we settled down after about a year. I enjoy fixing things so that took some of the bite out and we are able to park the coach here at the house. I can't imagine dealing with all the little things if I had to park it at a storage lot.
Fear not, it will slow down to where at least you will be able to meter it out in manageable chunks.

Ours needed tires and after much research and angst I decided on Toyo Brand and saved about $1300 over Michelins. The ride is good and after only a year, hardly a suitable test, we have had no problems.
