The Importance Of Tire And Wheel Balancing
To get great tire performance from your Goodyear RV tires, the weight of the tire and wheel assembly must be distributed uniformly around the tire’s circumference. Out-of-balance tires tend to cup and wear excessively at the heavy spot. You should have wheel balancing performed at Goodyear when:
- New tires are mounted.
- A tire and wheel are moved to another position.
- Used tires are installed on existing wheels.
- After a flat repair.
- Any time a tire is dismounted and removed.
Tire Rotation Patterns
Every RV and trailer is unique, so consult your vehicle owner’s manual for rotation recommendations for your vehicle. If the tires on your vehicle show uneven wear, ask your Camping World Service Center to check for and fix any misalignment, imbalance or other mechanical problems before rotating the tires.
Proper wheel alignment is essential to maintaining even treadwear on your Goodyear RV tires. Normal
wear of moving parts in a suspension system can result in misalignment, which can cause scuffing and rapid, uneven wear in your tires. Take your vehicle to a Camping World Service Center for regular alignment checks and adjustments.
Routine Tire Inspections
You should take your RV to your Camping World Service Center and have a tire inspection at least once a year. It’s also a good idea to have them inspected after you drive on rugged, rocky terrain or when you take your RV in for service. Have the Retailer check both sidewalls, the tread area, valves, caps and any valve extensions. Plus, your RV’s Goodyear tires should be checked for nails, cuts, bulges, aging, cracks and weathering, as well as objects lodged between the duals.
Cleaning Your RV Tires
Dirt and grime can keep road oils close to your RV’s Goodyear tires. That’s why you should clean your
tires whenever you wash your RV. You can wash your Goodyear RV tires with the same products you use to wash your RV – a soft brush and mild soap. Each Goodyear RV tire contains additives, and as the
tire rolls, they rise to the surface of the rubber to help protect the tires from cracking. Goodyear RV tires do not need any other dressings, appearance products or covers to help protect them. In fact, using products that contain alcohol, petroleum or silicone products may cause your Goodyear RV tires to deteriorate, crack and age more quickly.
