At a Good Sam rally that we attended (after our tire failure experiences), a tire company representative spoke during a workshop and said that there are two actions that RV owners can do to reduce early tire failure. The first was to maintain proper tire pressures and the second was to not park on concrete for extended periods of time without placing something between each tire and the concrete. His suggestion was to use inexpensive plastic placemats like those available from Walmart. His definition of extended periods was anything longer than 2 weeks. He said that tests had shown that the lime used in concrete can cause a drying out of the rubber compounds in tires and over time it is believed that can cause premature tire failures. When we return from a trip, we put a placemat in front of each tire and pull onto them when we are parking our unit in our storage building. It takes only a couple of minutes and if it saves one tire failure, it is worth it. Gary
Those had developed an abnormal wear pattern with an inside strip wearing down.
Ron,No... Inside (or outside) uneven tread wear on Front tires is 100% due to improper alignment. Improper toe-in adjustment and/or camber.
Interesting comment on tread separation. My tires are the replacement Michelin tires from the 2014 recall. Three weeks ago the tread pealed off the outside right rear tire. Yesterday, the outside left rear tire tread pealed off. Just wondering if the replacement Michelin tires have the same defect as the recalled ones.
