If you drive a vehicle every day, you'll probably wear out the tread in less than five. So your tires will probably need to be replaced before the tread wears out.
It's even more important with the kind of weight and load that your RV puts on them.Date codes Every tire has this code on the sidewall.It gives the date that the tire was manufactured but it doesn't just spell it out right.You have to know what to look for and how to read it. It's on one side of the tire, so you may have to crawl underneath to look at the inside of your tires.The date code always starts with the letters DOT and ends with a 3 or 4 digit number. In this example, 0508 means the 5th week of 2008, or the first week of February 2008.The first two numbers indicate the week of the year. With the year 2000, the date codes have two numbers for the year. A date code of 157 would indicate the 15th week of 1997 or you are lucky to be alive if this tire is still in use. You really don't want to pay full price for a tire that has already sat somewhere and deteriorated for a year.
You probably won't get one that was made last week, but you should expect it to be within the last several months.The tire dealer may look at you as an oddball or pretend to not know what you talking about.That's when you check the number or get ready to find another dealer.Tire Size If you've bought new tires or looked at your own, you'll see the mess of letters and number on the sidewall. LT 225 / 75 R 16 Type - Width / Ratio of width to sect height - Radial - inside diameter The first letters indicate the type of tire: P for passenger car, LT for light truck, and ST for special trailer.You won't find anything special for bus and medium-duty truck tires.The number 225 in this case, is the width of the tire, given in millimeters, followed by a slash. That is followed by a number which gives the inside diameter of the tire in inches.
