Tires

I've had my 29bhs for 5 years and I understand that would be time to change the tires. It cam new with GoodYears. The Jayco dealer's quote seemed high $525 - 550 installed for 4 Tow Masters. My question, has anybody used a regular tire shop to replace travel trailer tires? I take my truck to Discount Tire and I like their prices. I just don't see how I'd get the camper in their shop!
Thanks.

Our Discount Tire has a smallish parking lot out front but is larger behind the store. I make an early appointment and get there 1/2 hour or more before they open. I can then use the whole lot to position my trailer where they want it well before they open. That kind of strategy may or may not work for you.

I took my trailer to a tire store, they kept me hooked up, brought out a floor jack and did one tire at a time. They even balanced the wheels and tires, which the factory had not done.

Just a suggestion but look into LT tires in stead of the St's it came with. Just saying....

Mine came from discount too.

Search the forum for comments on TowMaster tires. They have had significant problems.

I wanted a heavy duty load range E 15" tire for my fifth wheel. The only tire I could find that met those specs was a Maxxim trailer tire. I never had any problems:

That's Maxxis not Maxxim.

Discount tire did our old pop up and truck at the same time. If I remember correctly, I dropped the trailer in the lot and the did it with floor jacks while the truck was in the bay.

I just had my tires replaced, by Discount Tire. The price seamed faie, and I upgraded load ratings. It took about a week for them to get the tires in.

Call them up and inquire about doing the trailer, they gabe me tire options and a quote overy the phone. I parked along side their building, and they did the work outside. They told me I could drop the trailer off, I just left it hooked up, and went for lunch down the block.
