I know that years ago, they actually used to stock 19.5 and 22.5 tires. I remember seeing XRV's at several Costco locations.

iRV2 thread from 2011: Sam's Club & Costco 22.5 Tires

However, even if they no longer actually have them in stock, I believe they can still order them for you.

A few years back I bought 6 new 22.5 inch tires from Costco. The auto/tire manager guaranteed they could mount them. The next morning I got a call from a different manager indicating they could not mount them because their mounting machine was not made for that size tire. Costco canceled my order. I then went to a large truck tire center for the replacement tires.

Mounting machine? A person with 2 steel bars and a container of soap water.

Tell them they are full of crap. All tires not safe if you don't know what you are doing. They should have a cage to place the tires into so they can inflate them. Besides, great number of 2/4 and 1 ton Pickup trucks use 19.5" tires. Are they saying they don't cater to farmers with pickups????

In my 45 years of driving trucks I only saw one shop that had a tire mounting machine. Wish I had a dollar for every flat I had.

Wonder what Costco would have said if they were told they were split rims. "What is a split rim?" comes to mind.

Forget Costco for tires - they seem to try their best to refuse business in the name of safety, where a real tire shop will apply themselves to fix the problem and still be safe. Twice I have had Costco tell me that they would not continue to work on my Dodge Dakota because they want me to replace all 24 lug nuts, this because the chrome beauty caps came off, so use an 18mm instead of a 19mm, duh. Then on another visit they called because they couldnt get a lug nut off, saying it must be cross threaded, and asked that I pick it up, and go to a shop and get it fixed. I backed off all of the nuts by hand and snugged them up lightly so that the poor babies didn't have to hurt themselves removing them. They were not cross threaded, for that matter they were the last shop to put the wheels on. The last time, I went it to get a tire repaired for a small leak from a nail, only to be told I need a new tire cause there was in fact 3 leaks... then I took it to a real tire shop and they explained that it is just the one leak but it is appearing in 3 places as it apparently can travel in the outer layer. Anyways, they plugged the one small hole and a year later tire is still good. Again, a real tire shop that knows what they are doing.

Our local Goodyear Tiresource has replaced our TT tires twice. No hassle at all. They have a dedicated area with an overhang tall enough to accommodate. We ordered the tires online and they shipped to store.

The problem with buying tires at Costco that donít fit a Toyota Camry is they have no experience mounting big tires. The reason is last week the guy mounting tires was in the meat department

I worked in tire manufacturing for over 30 years and we made commercial truck/trailer tires. I am not sure how many people know that a tire coming out of the curing press is inflated to the set psi while it cools down. OSHA regulations required any PSI above a certain level had to be inflated in a steel cage. I've been retired many years but I believe the threshold was 85 PSI. BTW, I have seen tires blow inside the cage and actually lift the cage off the ground a couple of inches. That's one reason why those working in the curing room were required to wear hearing protection.They may not have the cage to inflate the tires in.

Costco has given me some lame excuse why they couldn't put tires on my '04 Dodge dually 3500 the last few times I took it in for tires. I managed to get them to sell and install 2 new front tires at the beginning of the year. Went back a couple of months later for the rears, and they told me they couldn't work on a dually, plus they didn't sell tires in that size. I asked how long that had been a policy, and the guy said he had worked there for 3 years and the policy was in effect when he started. I gave him my receipt for the 2 front tires two month's prior, asked him to tell me the date, vehicle description and tire size. His reply was "I don't know what to tell you". I told him that someone in the tire department obviously didn't know what they were talking about and I'd never buy tires from Costco again. I wound up calling a few local tire shops, and it seemed none of them wanted to work on a dually. I went on line to Tire Rack and they had the tires I wanted in stock. They also had an installer 9 miles from my house. Tires were shipped mounted and balanced the following day.

You piqued my interest and I read the OSHA regulations on mounting truck tires. Looks like a cage or barrier is always required for large truck type tires after mounting a tire on a rim and inflating it for the first time. There were many other requirements to from using a clip on air chuck to employee training.

Thanks for making me learn something new!

I used to buy 19.5” tires at Costco for a previous motorhome I owned with no issues. It didn’t fit in the shop so they did the work out in the parking lot. When I needed tires for my current motto home, Costco initially said they would order the 19.5” with no issues. Upon further review, they cancelled the order when I wanted to verify that they could remove and install the lug nuts. Turned out they don’t have air guns and torque wrenches to deal with the 475 lbs-ft. I’ve now replaced the tires twice but never again checked to see if any changes the available required equipment.

Additionally, with all the safety protocols, it wouldn’t surprise me if they only install on vehicles inside the shop or other concerns brought up in the thread. -RT

Why is everyone upset with Costco. They are not a HD truck tire shop period. Go see the experts at a big tire shop
Would you go to pep boys for Cummins in fame rebuild kit ?
