Same brand I got at Walmart for $13.17 just a couple days ago.

Peak makes Blue Def. Sam's has it for about $11.00.

The crankcase holds almost 13 qts.

The computer says 700 miles. And all my driving is 10 - 12 hr+ trip w/o break. Not sure how that effects it. Saw the other post and reminds me I have to rotate and balance tires too!

Thanks to all.

If you have to rotate tires be sure to check the pressures yourself when it is done no matter what you told the tech. I find some of them cannot read a gauge or the sticker on the door for accurate pressure. Usually the low man on the totem pole does the tire rotations. Jim

I have to pull out Friday for SHOT Show in Vegas and was trying to figure out how big a priority this service needed to be.

Maybe could get done in Vegas while I'm there three days.

Hi MILATV,
If you have an extra ticket for Shot, I'd love to meet you in Vegas

I am also wondering about the tire rotation question. Personally, I have mostly been disappointed with the quality of tire rotations with the rims taking a beating. I am also assuming that it costs at least $100 to move six tires around. I am also assuming that the from two tires bear much of the wear. Would it be reasonable to keep the tires where they are and just replace the front two more often? I would appreciate any opinions. I al run my tires at the cold air pressure of 78lbs. I have found the handling at 61lbs. very sloppy. I have always run my trucks and cars just below cold psi recommendations with success. I am intending to upgrade the suspension and considering the Koni upgrade. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Many tire dealerships will rotate those tires for free, which is what we do whenever possible.

We try to rotate at home, where we buy the tires (Firestone), but have had other Firestone dealers elsewhere in the country do these same, free rotations for us when needed.

We are on our third set.

Regarding tire rotation, what I do is move them when I do a summer/winter swap. I have a separate set of tires on wheels for winter (Nokians). Each set gets about 6 months of usage, and the winter tires make all the difference in slippery conditions. When I install them, I put the two showing the most wear on the front - the rears wear more quickly, especially when towing. Without winter tires and weight in the back, my Sprinter won't go in the snow.

Hello,
Depending on tire brand,the reliability of the tire is the durability of valve stem. The freight liner tech. Was of the opinion that the rubber valve stems on continental tires shouldn't exceed 65 psi. Please double check your valve stem capacities and of course there were different rubber valve stems, but that's why I follow recommendations on door,until I replace valve stems with higher rated metal ones.
Pete

I am getting ready to replace tires. What extended valve stems would be best for the rear duals?

I use the Borg Dually Valves which you can order from YOURTIRESHOPSUPPLY.COM. The ones you want are part no: DL1SPAL. I have used these on two rvs with no issues and they will easily support a tire monitor transmitter. Cost is ~ $120 + shipping for all 4 duals. Great product.

As a newbie with my first rv with currently 5000 miles on the odometer and this set of tires, I am looking for tire rotation and balancing advice. At present I have no plans to travel in the snow and swapping out my tires for snow tires. Since this is my first set of tires, free rotation and balancing at a tire shop is out. Because of the weight of this vehicle, I am afraid to trusting the local tire shop. Would Protag please weigh in. Rotation schedule? Should tires be balanced at each rotation? What about alignment?
