RV tire guide from Goodyear

a few folks have posted asking about long term tire storage and what to do to keep the tires healthy. it might have already been posted but it's worth posting again.

Hi, I keep mine stored tightly between two houses with 65 lbs air pressure in them; And it gets, very little, if any direct Sun light. How long is long term? Mine gets out two to four times a year. No weather cracking yet.

the guide mentions "Move the vehicle at least every three months to help
prevent ozone cracking and flat-spotting, but avoid moving it during extremely cold weather".

bob, you're so close to you house that even dust can't get in on that side ;-)

Thanks for posting this, It has been saved!

Do have a question about it, If I am understanding it right, I should have my tire pressure at 45 - 50 lbs.? and that's way over the max. weight of 7,300lbs. That just seams very low.

Hi, the manufacturer of your vehicle [Airstream] states that your tires are to be inflated to 65 lbs. Specifications and liabilities come from the finished product over and beyond the separate pieces used in construction.
