Not your usual tire replacement thread.

I'm curious as to what people do when they replace their tires on the TT. Do you buy and have them replaced in the same place? Do you use a camper dealer? Do you buy in one place (online, etc.) and then take the trailer and the tires to a dealer? Do you just remove 1 or 2 and take only the wheel/tires to a dealer? If you remove the wheels and take them in, what method do you use to get the trailer lifted?

Lots of questions I know, but it's getting to be about time to replace mine so...


Thanks.

I used discount tires. Traveling and had tire issues. Replace all of them. Load range D or better. Your local tire dealer can do them. Just take them the unit and they will take care of you.

I used Home - Discount Tire Direct and had the tires delivered (free) to me. I then took 2 wheels at a time to the local Merchant tire and paid to have the old tire removed and new tires mounted (I should have had them balanced). For the first set that I took, I paid the shop guys a tip to do it. The second set (the next day), there was a manager on duty, and I paid the store directly to do it.

For my last camper that I just traded in I purchased my LT tires for the camper from Discount Tires; had them mounted and balanced. I did two at a time taking them off the camper and than the next two the same day. That way I did not have to tow the camper to Discount Tire to have them replaced.

I took mine to les schwab they have a over size bay and if you get there before it opens you will be first in line and can be in and out in just over 1 hour. To much work to do it my self you pay the same for mount and balance either way so let them do the work.

Took my rig to Goodyear and they did the entire job. Later, I bought a new wheel to match the 5er and took all 4 off, put trailer on jack stands and took spare, new wheel, 4 tire/wheels and TST TPMS sensors to shop and had the tires rebalanced with the sensors, mounted the new spare on the new wheel and balanced it with a sensor also.

Discount tire online - no sales tax, free shipping and $100 discount if I bought 4 tires. I paid a total of $300 for four Maxxis tires. Then brought two at a time to tire shop to replace old tires.

Over the years have done it about every way you can except on line, even pulled them off one trailer & put them on another. When you have 5 trailers any way can work. Usually use our local tire dealer he is very reasonable & very busy always............

I wanted Maxxis tires and the local Firestone dealer ordered them. The day before my installation appointment Firestone sent me a $100 off coupon so the total came to $408 mounted and balanced. Usually those coupons arrive the day after I make the purchase but I lucked out this time.
