Have been reading these tire comments for quite some time now and decided that my coach tires, at 10 years and 3 months, shouldn't be run any longer. I am extremely careful, like most of you, about tire pressures before and during long trips, not bumping into anything that I shouldn't, and continually inspecting the tires for checking, bulges, or any other visible damage. At every stop, which is usually about 2-3 hrs due to nature calling, I check the temps of all the tires including the toad.
Even after saying all that, and not ever finding even 1 check on my beautiful looking tires, I have ordered 8 new 295/80X22.5 thru the Advantage program. Must be a popular tire as there is no stock anywhere right now. Should be here in 2-3 weeks, just in time for our trip from Colorado to Michigan.
The confidence and peace of mind resulting from this will take away that constant slight worry of "should I have replaced these before I left"?
These threads are sure a great source of information!!! If I stay up late enough and go back far enough in each topic, I can usually find an answer to my question before asking.
Note: I always run tire pressure at the labeled psi, even though it is higher than required for the load, and I will continue to do so. If it works for the many, many miles I have driven, it works. And I have no complaints about the ride.
