  • Wash tires regularly (but not too often) with mild soap and a soft brush
  • Replace your tires every 7 years, regardless of their visual appearance
  • Avoid petroleum-based tire products that can accelerate deterioration
  • There are plaques on every RV that indicate proper tire inflation levels - these should be consulted

On the Road
  • Pack your RV conscientiously to evenly distribute weight and avoid bringing more than you need
  • RV tires weigh as much as 250 lbs, changing or rotating your tires should not be considered a do-it-yourself project
  • Be sure the size and load range of your tires are suitable for the weight of your RV

Off the Road

  • Block and level your RV each time you store it in one place for 2 or more days
  • Park your RV out of the sun or use tire covers to avoid cracks from UV exposure
  • Watch your tire pressure and keep tires properly inflated, even during storage
