Not only that, for those that like to squeeze the maximum poop out of a buffalo nickel, you can rotate the spare into the "on the ground" lineup every few thousand miles. Spare to axle position, that tire to spare holder. Next time the tire on the spare holder goes to the other position on the same side. Third "rotation", repeat on other side.

In theory one can get more "miles" out of their tires, especially those who have indoor or well protected (from environment) storage for their RV.

For those who are lazy like me.... spend the $150 and save the back and time to rotate. Ymmv

Wed. 8:30Am Appt. for 5 Goodyears

Spoke with a good friend of mine and he knows I will not rotate either so Wed. 8:30 am appt. for 5 Goodyears it is. My Daughter, Son In Law, and Grandson use the TT as much as we do so safety for them was also a big influencer.

So Far So Good

Am very pleased with the new Goodyear Endurance tires on "The Bunkhouse."
Not a lot of miles yet but I can definately feel the ride difference.
Just IMHO.

Just wondering where you guys buy your tires. Your RV dealer vs tire store?

I can't remember the brand name of the trailer tires at Costco but I've had very good luck with those.
