  1. New Tire Shelf Life

    Joe and Carl--From your brief post I sense this a rat hole others have gone down over the years. As a new owner of a used motorhome, 2002 Newmar Dutch Star, buying my first set of tires have learned that I did not know the right questions to ask and then not following-up before tires were installed. I have not given up quest to get newer tires, almost two years is not acceptable. Tire store has been instructed to hold my old tires, made Oct or Nov 2012 with less than 12,000 always covered, and if required/necessary will have them put back on motorhome and live to fight another day.

  2. New Tire Shelf Life

    What is acceptable shelf-life of new tires being installed on a motorhome? 24 May 2017, had six “new tires” (275/70R22.5) installed on my motorhome, tires made by a national company. When I arrived home checked tires DOT made date and learned “new tires” were made 3415 making them already almost two years old. Today upon investigation with two separate national tire manufactures I was told tires have a shelf-life of three years being held for sell in the national company warehouse and a life-cycle of ten years. I feel that this is unsettling, as I had understood it best to keep tires on motorhome based on DOT date tires were made for five or six years. My old tires which were replaced were made in Oct or Nov of 2012, but not installed on motorhome until April 2013. Comments/Guidance Desired Please. Norm
