With advice like that I can see why he's been successfully selling tires for 30 years. He's insuring that he's having frequent returning customers.

Maybe a practical joke? Anyway, covering is a good start.


practical joke from whom? The op or the repair guy? I doubt either of them are making a joke. I think he is serious that this was the advice he got.

Vaseline on tires ranks right up there with using Pledge to make a wreck look shiny.

Hi All.

Yep, "Outstanding Advice" he gave you. Go ahead and use "Vaseline" on your RV Tires, he said it was good for them and makes your RV Tires last longer.

We see a "New Set of RV Tires" in your "Near Future". Bad for "You", "Good" for Him, and his Business.

Good Luck. Happy Travels. Dan & Jill

That's right. I only use Pledge on my furniture and the windshield of my Airplane.

People buy Deer Whistles, K&N Air Filters, Slick 50 oil treatment and do lots of other things they believe in. That doesn't mean it's the right thing to do..

Not a bad idea from the dealer side. The faster the tire dries out the sooner he sells another set.
