I've seen this happen before with Discount Tire, and then when it came time to cash in, the mistake was realized. I think we have a thread/member here who said Discount refunded his road hazard monies, but would not honor it as they said it was a mistake to have sold it on an RV use tire to begin with.

Their website tire warranty does say specifically that their road hazard does NOT apply to tires used on RV's in the exclusions, which I copied over from the link below and emboldened in red:

http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/infoCertificate.do

Conditions and Exclusions

Non-commercial service includes use by the owner in his/her regular trade or business but excludes commercial truck, racing, off-the-highway, taxi, limousine, or similar service. Passenger, SUV or light truck tire road hazard warranty (if applicable) does not apply to tires used on commercial trucks, recreational vehicles or off-the-highway service. Mileage warranty (if applicable) applies only to tire's original purchaser on the car, SUV or light truck on which originally installed

You may want to verify and reverify, as I would hate for you to need it and they then deny it, as per their written policy. You should have something in writing, that may claim different though. Good luck.

7Y Tires are built at this plant. Kenda did not come in that size so I assumed it was a LRE tire. Should have used the 126 service description then I would have known it was a LRG tire.
KENDA RUBBER CHINA CO., LTD.

If the factory did their homework with the OE G614 tires the rims will be 16x6.5 with 110 PSI rating for the OE tires.

Thanks for the conversation Airdale. Are you saying that my rims should be fine if the factory did it's homework?

Also, I'm going to call Forest River and ask them to confirm that G614 tire diameter will work on my tandem axel setup before I pull the trigger and buy them.

Here are three steps in “selecting the right tire” found under that heading in the Discount Tire operating instructions. There is no guarantee all stores will abide by these steps but they are there and under trained installers could very easily make mistakes when not properly supervised.

Make sure the tire has load carrying capacity equal to or greater than what the vehicle placard suggests.

Verify that the rim width range is appropriate for the tire to be installed.

Confirm that the tire-to-vehicle clearance, lock-to-lock steering and suspension clearance is such that no rubbing occurs.
