Commercial trucks do not scrub their tires nearly as often when turning tight like trailers do. Not really a fair comparison. I would be leary of an unknown brand purchased to sit on the sales lot.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned how rough a triangle tire is going to ride.

Hard to balance too.

So the 2014 5th wheel we have agreed to purchase has Triangle TR656 14ply Load range G tires.

They were installed in Sept 2019 with little to no use since then (RV stored for winter).

Should I just commit to replacing these before a long distance road trip?

Thanks,
OJ


"They were *installed* ...... etc.

Check the *DATE CODE* on the tires !!...[emoticon]

*If* it's reasonably close (within a few months) to/of Sept 2019 -
and you don't see any obvious sidewall cracking, etc. They're OK.

If you're still in doubt, take one wheel & tire to a tire shop you trust (or think you do) - have them dismount the tire. Examine the inside *yourself* along with the shop folks. (I would expect they will try to sell you 4 new ones).

If all looks good, then -
The answer is *NO* you don't need to replace them...[emoticon]

If the *DATE CODE* is a "few" years older than 2019, I would be concerned (they may have sat on a tire shop shelf) before a buyer who didn't know enough to check - came along...[emoticon]

Yes.....that DOES happen - How do I know? They tried, I passed on the outdated tires the shop tried to sell me!

Buyer beware!
