No motorhome in my driveway.  I had a 5th wheel until September when we sold it.

If we were smart we would run them about 3 years and sell them in like new condition and buy fresh again. 


That's my plan for the Motor Coach tires. The big question is finding the market for tires this large.
Kevin I see the motor home in the driveway, gas or diesel?

Good idea I suppose. Never thought of that.

I've had very good luck with my Yoko's.  I bought 6 new in 2002.  I finally replaced the fronts a few years ago just because they were getting "dated", though not checked at all.  But near 18 yrs on them I can't complain.   I am still running the rears at 20 yrs old.  Yes, I'm jinxing myself as I type.   I likely will buy new ones come spring, though mine only have 50K miles on them and have tons of tread left.  They are lug tires and likely get something a bit less knobby the next time.

First time in 2002, they were 250 each, last time it was 450 each.  Can't wait to see what a few more years has brought to pricing.  Guess I never really thought I would have to keep buying tires even though they aren't wearing out??  Ugh.

The On/Off road version of that the tread blocks are bigger and there are only 2 rows of them.  Hankook AM09 in 11R24.5

I get some internal server code error when I try to direct link it.

Here is what I got.  Hankook A09 on/off road.  Apparently in the area they have a good reputation.  Not a lot to choose from right now.  Most of the choices were gone and I guess the supply line has a lot of orders in it.  Well I was going to try and upload a photo - that didn't work and neither does a embedded link. 

Trying this

If that doesn't go to a photo of the tires.  There near the bottom of page 1 here:

Rusty, I think Kelly is a product of good year. They are a good tire just have a little bit shorter tread life and no carcass value. If this is a hobby truck or lo mileage truck they are a good choice. That however is just my opinion based on my experience.



I cried because I had no shoes till I met a man who had no class.

I put Kelly steer tires on from my local Goodyear dealer (11R24.5).  Looked just like the 10+ year old Goodyears that I took off.  Put Kelly drives on this fall. Looked just like the Goodyear MSD tread that I took off.  Made in USA.  I used them because the cash and carry price was acceptable to me and I live out the sticks so pickin's are slim without having to get them delivered.
