I think it is different for those big tires on semi's and busses etc... i am only referring to regular trucks...
Most people's vehicle tires are worn out by 6-7 years at best anyway.

Being this discussion is in the Super C section, this is in regards to a 22.5 semi truck style tire which very few people ever mileage out this type of tire on a motorhome vs aging out. It’s not uncommon for some of the truck tires to last 100k or more miles.

I was responding to his comment about car tires, not RV tires

We just keep trying to keep rolling and stay ahead of the damaging sun rays. I would much rather replace a worn out tire than an aged one.

Goodyear made the best RV tire ever made. Then, they switched production to China and their tires were now the worst ever made. I understand that now they have switched some or all back to USA. From what I hear their quality is good now.

Makes no matter to me. My ONLY blowout ever was a chinabombgoodyear. They lost my RV business.
Imagine if China made RVs. We'd all be thankful for that made in the USA Jayco quality.

That's probably true for the average driver.

I have a classic car that is garaged and covered and only gets a hundred miles or so put on in a year. It is only driven on city roads, never goes out in the rain, etc. It has a set or premium goodyears that are about 25 years old.

The tires look perfect, hold air and I'll keep them until....whenever. On a side note, I just replaced the battery and it was 23 years old...

Now, if these were STs they would have been trashed 21 years ago...

X2. Sad thing is China probably makes most of what is already in our Jaycos.
