Tire Replacement

On my Class A 36 ft Winnebago Horizon diesel pusher I had a blowout on my passenger side inside rear tire that affected the outside tire by taking all the sudden weight after the initial blowout. The tires were 7 years old, however lots of tread wear left 13/32's. My decision was to replace all 6 tires rather than the just two effected tires due to the age of the tires. (People recommend after 5 years replace your tires). I did not want to run the risk of problems every time the next tire failed. I have piece of mind now as well whenever we hit the road. The problem is that the Insurance Company will only pay the depreciated cost of the two tires. Are there any reports to show the proper course of action was to replace all 6 tires so they ride properly, wear the same and the vehicle steers correctly ? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Robert

Not that I know of. A blow out is one thing. Time and wear is normal and replacement is on you. Now if you have a tread wear warrenty or damage replacement, that is something else. That is all you are intitled too if you are lucky.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

You made the right decision to replace all the tires, but I don't think you're gonna get anything out of the insurance company! Keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Seems to me if you get your insurance company to pay anything for old tires you should be happy. I'm surprised they would pay for anything other than damage to the RV body.
