The best time to change out the factory tires is the moment you get it home from the dealer.
Far too many failures to risk damaging a brand new camper.

X2 on that, my DW thought I lost my mind when I spent $1400 on new tires and rims after only one camp out with the T26TBSS there was no way I was staying with 'C' rated tires I went straight to 'E'.

Coachmen does warranty tires. They were fairly emphatic on that point. Lionshead refuses to warranty the tire as "there are many reasons tires fail." True statement, I must admit.

Bottom line - it appears FR and their suppliers will not honor warranty on tires.
