Discount Tire has an eBay store also. I just got 4 Maxxis tires from there a month ago, and it was even a better deal than their website.

Wow. That's great. I actually called them last year to ask about a local dealer and they didn't say anything about being able to order directly from them! Oh well. I make a trip to Gananoque 3 times a year to visit relatives and I just hop across the border to Wellesley Island while I'm there to pickup my orders from U.S. companies with free shipping.

Yep, I saw that they had a $100 coupon on Ebay for a while, but it ended on March 16. I missed that option by 10 days. I had been to their website, but never thought to look on Ebay for new tires. ugh. I hate losing the opportunity to save a Benjamin.

I'm interested to know how many folks replacing their tires also replaced the spare.

My spare is entirely unused (and covered to protect from the sun), BUT I'm not sure that if I do get a flat on one of the new tires that I'd be comfortable running with 3 D-rated tires at 65psi, and one C-rated tire at 50psi ... just doesn't seem right.

Any thoughts ?

I will be replacing all 5 early next month since I'm upgrading from LR-C to Maxxis M8008 LR-D tires. I'll also be using bolt-on valve stems on all 5 wheels.

Another happy camper with Discount Direct. Ordered the E rated Maxxis 225 75 15 received in two days. Mine were a little older, one was 10 months, 1 seven and the other two 6. I also ask for the newest and was told they would try. Mine were shipped out of Ohio. Can't cry and they're new enough. They threw in 4 short metal stems, very happy. Use balancing beads for balancing tires as I have on three previous units and in my current TV. The beads work great just make sure you use the composite ceramic beads not glass or metal.

Tell me about these balancing beads. I've heard of them, but know almost nothing. Where do you get them? How do you install them?

Google "Tire Balancing Beads from Checker Flag". They have a U tube that's very good as well. I've had good luck with them in both RVs (5er and TT) as well as my 2500 Ram.

Balancing beads work great. I've been using them for years on motorcycles. They constantly are keeping the tire balanced and prolong tire life. The little ceramic beads spin to the outer edge of the tire and balance the tire. The out of balance section will get the most weight. The rest spread evenly around the tire.
Traditional balancing works great when tires are new, but after a few miles and potholes the weights May not be sufficient.
All you have to do is buy the beads and an applicator tube. Remove the valve stem and place your beads in the applicator tube. The beads will flow through the applicator and into the tire. Sometimes you must tap on the valve stem, but it's only 5 minutes from start to finish normally. Reinstall valve stem and inflate the tire. This can be done easily with tire on the RV.
