Just saying hey!

New to this forum but not to RVin'

Just bought a 2013 Thor Hurricane 34E and looking forward to getting out of the house and using it. But first I'm going to replace the tires. It still has the orginal 2013 Goodyears on it. At 7 years old and 33k they still look great, but I've had rear tire blow outs before so I ordered new tires today.

Good for you. RV tires work hard and are near their capacity. A blow out can be pretty challenging especially if it’s on the front. I’m always amazed at the number of people who think it’s fine to overload the coach, push the tires or tow without brakes because “they’ve never had a problem”. The life you save....could be mine!!

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the purchase. It is a good idea to replace the tires at their age and mileage. You don't need a tire issue while out on the road.
