Tire Information Links - LINKS ONLY/NO DISCUSSIONS

I thought that since we get so many questions on tires and inflation it would be good to post some links from the three major tire brands. All three majors have great information. Bridgestone has a great RV tire care page and Michelin has that great video "The Critical Factor"

Bridgestone

Please feel free to add to the list. Maybe we can may this a sticky.

Additional information.

Yes, I agree. This will be a convenient way for our member to find out what tire pressure they need to run as well as other important information about their tires. Thank you.

They are just about one in the same with Bridgestone, however, different pricing, different stamping, etc., so maybe Firestone should not be left out of the mix. I bought 8 new last year before our east coast trip, no problems to report with ride quality or steer, and they were available at a decent price.

I have Toyo tires on my Coachmen and I know they are popular with other RVers so here is the link to their Load/Pressure info:

Here is a bit of safety information for those that may not know about it. The DOT will recall the GY G159 from use on motor homes starting this month. They are not suited for use in those positions.

In case anyone's interested, I found a fairly useful tire size calculator online, http://www.powerdog.com/tiresize.cgi

there's a box to enter tire sizes, you can enter as many different sizes as you want, just press enter to add another tire size. Then press the "compute sizes" button, and it will list the sidewall width, tire radius, diameter, circumference, and revolutions per mile of all sizes you entered. The first size entered is used as a "base size", all other sizes are compared to it, showing difference in speedometer reading @60 mph, and odometer reading @10,000 miles...

For some reason, it won't take 1/2 size tires (22.5 comes up 22) but otherwise, it shows you an accurate difference between sizes.

The link gets you there, but not to the RV tables. On this same site is a specific link and table for RV tires, but it isn't obvious unless you hunt for it. I stumbled across it and here it is:
