I'll be buying 7 tires in the spring of 2022. Plenty of tread--but aged out.

My car tires are a different matter. I'm driving less than 3000 miles a year. So the tires will have only 12000 miles on them in 2024. It is in urban low speed use only.

So here's the science behind the tire aging limit:

Rubber compounds age according to temperature. It's called the Arrhenius equation. A quick and dirty version is: Chemical reactions double with every 10°C.

What that means is that tires in - say - Phoenix age much more rapidly than tires in - say - Minneapolis. That's one of the reasons why there is disagreement between users.

Then we have the issue of trailer tires. Many of these weren't designed well and failed early. This had little to do with aging and a lot to do with material fatigue. This is also influencing how people perceive tire life.

Does Good Sam have a tire discount purchase program like one of the other RV associations?

Good afternoon,
We do not currently offer any tire discount program but we appreciate the recommendation and will pass this feedback along.
