Solera owners tire mileage request

Solera owners, can you chime in on how much mileage you have currently on your OEM tires. Would like to hear about how well they are performing. Please include Brand and Model of the tire. Will be a good reference I think on buying replacements.

Continental Vanco 4Seasons, replaced at about 33K miles. Probably could have gone 5K further; but chose to replace early and not worry about them on long trips.

Same Conti tires. Coming up on 30k and they look as good as new. Except the former front tires which are almost gone due to the bad alignment when delivered.

I would certainly buy them again.

Dealer told me tires would be needed to be replaced due to sun damage before tread was gone

I was told the same thing by our dealer as well. Reading in this forum, others, and Motorhome magazine all say that tire age and condition of the sidewalls determine longevity.

Tire mileage

I had the Kumo tires. Front right one split open at 40,000 miles even though there was some tread left. Now I have Michelin.

Continental Vanco 4Seasons, just over 10,000+ on my 2013 Solera S. Still look good. Lost one inner rear last year on a trip from Orlando to Tucson at El Paso due to the fiberglass tire stems leaking, replaced with steel stems with "No Problems!" Planning on replacing with MICHELIN's.

Continental Vanco 4 Seasons on my 2013 Solera 24S. Just replaced all 6 at 42,165 miles. Outer rear tires were down to the wear bars. The rest probably had about 1/32 left. I only did 1 rotation, then decided it wasn't worth the hassle to rotate them (given all the problems we've had with the air-flexx valve extensions and squeaking wheel covers every time we mess with the wheel covers).

I had Kumho. Replaced them at 36k with Michelins. Tires were worn out. Seem like very poor OEM tires...
