So if I held them with chocks, I'd need 8 chocks.
Ah..... We don't have to worry about snow here but maybe every 10 years. So we use the double tire covers and 4 chocks. But you can catch a sale at harbor freight and catch those really good, heavy chocks for $5 a piece

Yeah, but I don't want to haul 8 of them around!

2 years! You should see your tire dealer and get an adjustment. If they decline then ask for something in writing that states there is absolutely nothing wrong with the tires.

You need to replace MH tires every 5-7 years anyways, doubt covers would do much in that time frame unless it's sitting in the direct sun at all times.

Yes for tire covers. I don't have 47 yrs experience, but have been the victim of a rear dually tire blowout and the damage it does to the coach. Take care of your tires!
