We put 40,000 miles on our last coach with 22.5 tires and never rotated the tires . The tires still looked new after all those miles . Tooling Along

I have never rotated my tires either. I suspect the fronts would show uneven wear if one does a lot of cornering but running down the road it has not been an issue for us. I've got about 20,000 miles on them now.

Probably not a good idea to rotate radial tires. a swap front to back is what is normally done but probably not necessary on an RV, few of us wear them out they die from age.

Funny we should have a tire thread , just looked at my spare and it had a big ole bulge in it. IT was a tube type tire and had an oval opening for the valve stem. could not find a stem to fit it or the correct size tube tire. Had to buy a rim and tire...

About 3 years after putting new tires on the camper I did a midwinter check and found a shredded carcass on the spare carrier. It had good tread and I probably didn't re tire it ( Big Grin ) in previous updates, gotta check the codes. No code was to be found, only remnants of tire and cover. Would that I had replaced all 5 savings wouid be the result, price nearly doubled.
