Regarding dressings:
Quote:
Goodyear RV tires do not need dressings, appearance products or covers to help protect them. In fact, using
products that contain alcohol, petroleum or silicone may cause your Goodyear RV tires to deteriorate and crack.
Clean your tires whenever you wash your RV. You can wash your tires with the same products you use to wash
your RV – a soft brush and mild soap
Armour All contains 5% mineral oil according to its MSDS. It's the LAST thing you want to put on your tires.

I use Brylcreem on my tires. I had some left over from when I was young and had hair.

When it gets hot I bet you have an uncontrollable urge to gnaw on the rubber then

Whatever blocks the sun and its UV rays from getting to the rubber is a good idea. 303 Protectant is what I put on all the rubber outside on our camper. Ive seen cloth wheel covers and even a piece of plywood tied on so it cna't blow aaway.

Like I said, anything to keep the sun off of the rubber.

Dong' forget slide out seals, etc when you are putting the 303 on, they need it too

Jacks?

Sun covers here in Florida plus jack stands under the axles to take the load off the tires. Avoids the thump thump of flat spots from long storage. Canít be good for the tire to not be round.

Flat spots are a remnant from the bias ply tire days. Not nearly as common with radials.

Here is the answer from a Tire Engineer.
RV Tire Safety: Tire Covers - Do they do any good?


I have seen tires that were destroied by some spray or wipe on shine stuff.



While UV and ozone are bad for tires HEAT is the killer.
White covers are the best way to go IMO.


If you are only driving 60 miles a year you should probably sell your new tires and buy some used tires. Be sure to have enough inflation to support 115% of the measured tire load.

I stretch 30 gallon plastic trash bags over our RV tires when storing it. They have to be stretched a little bit to put them on and they won't blow away.

If the bags are black and tight you are storing your tires in an oven. Really NOT GOOD.

I spend six months in the winter at Isla Blanca just across the bridge from you so Hello. My 2015 320RS is facing North and with the slides out I think the tires on the East side only get a couple of hours of sun first thing in the morning and on the West side a couple of hours in the evening. I don't do anything to protect them. My original China bombs lasted four years with no problems except one flat by nail and one flat by a leaking tire stem. Both were caught by my TPMS before going completely flat.

The hot Florida sun bakes everything. We cover our tires with thick but breathable canvas covers. They stay on fine, even in wind. To keep them on in heavy weather, I tie the sides together from behind the wheels.
