Taking Care of Your RV Wheels and Tire

Your RV wheels are just like any other wheels on any vehicle in that they also need to be maintained and replaced when necessary. The wheels and tires of your RV are critical elements that need to be checked regularly and taken care of, because if they are damaged, that means you won’t be going anywhere at all.

Of course, wheels that are properly maintained will look good, and that goes a long way towards improving the overall appearance of your RV. It doesn’t matter if the wheels are aftermarket or not; wheels and tires covered in dust and grime will always look like eyesores. You can clean your RV wheels like you would care for the wheels of a car or any other vehicle, and you should never hesitate to replace them if it’s the better option.

Speaking of maintaining your wheels and tires, you should know these important tips:

  •          You should first check to see if the tires on your RV are rated properly according to the fully loaded weight of your vehicle. There are tire rating charts that are readily available for RV owners if needed.

 

  •          The tread depth of your tires should be checked regularly. It should be at least 6/32 of an inch. That is deeper than the tread depth of a car tire, but then again, your RV is heavier and the tires take a lot more punishment. Tires that have less than 6/32 of an inch depth should be replaced as soon as possible.

 

  •          You should also check to see if your RV wheels are properly inflated. The recommended tire pressures should be located on the sidewall. You can also check your RV manual or the website of the manufacturer if you need more information.

 

  •          There are plenty of automotive shampoos you can buy to wash your RV with, and you can use that as well for washing your wheels. Soap and water will clear up a lot of the contaminants and grime, but sometimes you will need to buy wheel cleaners for more stubborn dirt.

 

  •          If you’re storing away your RV for longer than 5-6 months at a time, you should know that this can actually stress out your wheels. It’s better to take out your RV for a short drive every now and then (maybe once or twice every month). You can also rotate the tires to help prevent them from sidewall weathering and uneven wear and tear.

 

  •          Using a pH balanced wheel cleaner is always better than using acid-based products. For one, an acidic cleaner will oxidize the polished finish of your wheels. This is especially true for aftermarket wheels, so take note of this.

 

  •          If you need to buy RV wheels and parts, look for suppliers or stores that have developed a reputation for service and quality. You’ll have a better shopping experience and get your money’s worth at the same time.
