Recently purchased a 2002 Winn. Journey with 9900 miles on it. I think the tires are original. They look great but I think they should be replaced. Any suggestions on make of tire for quiet smooth ride? It's a diesel pusher 36'. Thank you for any help.

Before replacing check the DOT tire date code.
Maybe they aren't old.........probably are but best to check first.

What size tire?

Not positive but my recollection is that Michelin says to replace at 10 years and to start inspections at 6 -- go to their website to confirm.

DOT date code:
On newer tires, the number is a set of digits in the "Dot" row. Bad news is, on some older tires the number's on the BACK side of the tire...
Tires made after the year 2000 have four digit numbers.
First one or two digits is the week, and the last two are the year.
Below example, "2607" is the 26th week of 2007.
