Wow that's a lot of money for tires. Some of my trucker friends retread their tires to save on money...I wonder if that's possible for RV's?

The reason most "otr" truckers don't balance with "wheel weights" is because the throw a pack of balancing beads inside the tire.

I know they have what is called regroovable tires that come on CC models. How that works is beyond me. They even say regroovable stamped on them.

I would not recommend regrooving an rv tire . by the time the tread is worn down the side walls are cracked and they are usually past the expiration date. Six to seven years and the rubber turns to crap. Truckers can put a 100k miles a year, an rv'er maybe 12k.
