Your tires are a 875 X 16.5 . I just installed 6 new 10 ply Firestone tires in February. on my 1984 23.5 ft Coachmen. If you have a Tire Craft store in Calgary have them check for this tire. I live in Stettler Alberta and our Tire Craft store had no problem getting these tires for me. Good luck.
Don't attempt to drive on tires that are starting to seperate or you can wind up upside down in some ditch some where. Good luck.

The tire size and load range recommended by the manufacture should be on a label inside the door jam, drivers side. You can also get the date code off one or all of the tires and see when they were made. Another member can tell you what to look for and where. Newer codes are 4 numbers. I don't know about yours. Might be the same, might not. Tread wear on rv tires is not a good indicator of life left. I would continue to seek advice were I you.

My Firestone dealer was able to locate 6 tires for my 1984 Chev. TransMaster last spring. They were not Firestone's but were of current manufacture and US made. Manager indicated that their supplier was still able to obtain. Other local and national tire stores were of no help.
