Have you ever been on the road, driving your RV, calmly staring at the endless American road ahead of you when – all of a sudden – you hear an explosion? The calm is gone, the serenity out the window, and your trip is ruined. You have just experienced a tire blowout. It happens to the best of us.
When you are an RV owner, the life of a trailer tire is only three to five years. Just because there may a lot of tread on a tire does not mean it is a good tire. For all you know, the tire (and trailer for that matter) could have been sitting in a warehouse for a few years. Tires do not have to look worn out. Regardless of how it looks, after three to five years, a tire is dangerous. When it comes to tires, it is best not to judge a book by its cover. At Hemet Valley RV, we get a lot of business from blown tires.
When a tire blows out, it will do damage to the lower skirts and sometimes the sidewall siding as well. A tire just doesn’t get a hole in it and deflates, it explosively comes apart. Moreover, when it comes apart, it’s flails heavy thick rubber causing damage to everything around it. Not only do you lose a tire, but your lower skirts suffer damage as well. It is a double whammy.
In the event of a tire blowout, Hemet Valley RV is the place to get lower skirt metal and sidewall siding.
