We don't seem to be having much luck with our tires after about 5 years. We have a 35' diesel pusher and use Michelin tires.They start to dry rot and blow out between 5-6 years. we purchased tire covers 2 years ago for our latest set. We keep it in a pole barn (no sides).

Do any of you have regular schedule for changing your tires? We also run100# of tire pressure. Should I not expect to go any longer than this on a set of tires? I bought this rig new in 1997 and have had 2 other motorhomes both gas rigs.

Improper maintenance on your part. Dry rot is UV rays and lack of use. They make plenty of long-term tire treatments for rigs.

I could ask Crash up to the tire place. It's been about 7-8 years and 150,000+ between now and the last set on the H8H. It goes by his place before every trip.

Michelin doesn't recomend putting anything on the tires because they exued wax from the sidewalls so how am I neglecting them?
