    Most manufacturers say 8 yrs life on tyres Michelin certainly used to say 8 yrs. Motorhome users are unlikely to wear out their tyres so check the date code on the tyrewall. Usually a month and year. Most mhome dealers will not necessarily change older tyres on used mhome stock so check age before making an offer and use old tyres as a bargaining point.

    Great information!!! In my opinion I would like to use snow socks of a good brand in snow driving.

    Firstly, I didn’t know winter tyres were available for motorhomes? However, the problem which comes instantly to mind is that you would need to order them, as winter tyres haven’t yet caught on in the UK (we’ve swapped summer/winter wheels on the car since 2010). The problem with slow stock turnover is that the tyres could be up to a year old when they are fitted, so if you do a low mileage, you’ll need to replace them after only four years, rather than the recommended five-year replacement on motorhomes.
