I think you need a set of tires, not just one.

I second the Discount Tire advice. Question, did you try Crestview RV on 35 before you get to Schertz or Camping World over in New Braunfels?

Is this about price or availability? Any Goodyear store should be able to get you a Marathon.

Did you buy Marathon on Amazon?

Otherwise yes you may find very few of these on the shelf and have to be ordered in. Better chance of a fresh tire that way too.


Availability. I only tried my local Goodyear store. All he told me is that they don't carry RV tires with no offer to order.

They will overnight almost anywhere and you do have a spare.
Change out tire figure out where you will be the next night and have the tire shipped "hold for P/U" at the nearest UPS place.


Nothing wrong with Amazon. Just never thought about overnighting to my next stop. I'm usually just a weekender. Haven't really had to consider this type of thing. Thanks for the tip!

I just bought one of my tires a short while back. It is practically new.

No. I did not. Once I found the tire on Amazon, I was done looking.

I buy most of my tires from Tire Rack. I've had some on my front porch in 24 hrs. and never waited more than 48 hrs.

X2 and they'll match any online price. Walmart.com had the lowest price on the Carlisle tires I wanted. Discount Tire beat it.

Looks like there's plenty of answers on this post & I've had to delete some answers for violating the forum rule about advertising.
