More On Tires

We mentioned in the video that these tires are not always easy to find. Unlike automobile tires, RV tires often take a bit of time to locate. Luckily, we had already planned to spend a few days in the area.

Before they installed the new tire, we checked the tire manufacture date to make sure that it was truly a new tire. The date is imprinted on the sidewall of every tire as the week and year of build.
