Default new owner of 1996 roadtrek 210 popular here

hi!

call me Hank. this forum rules everyone here is cool I've learned a lot by checking it out . I just got a 1996 Chevy Roadtrek 210 Popular with decent mileage. It's awesome. Needs some work. Hoping to meet other 90's Chevy Roadtrek 210 Popular owners here to learn some tips and mods and to help me with finding the replacement parts I need!

i need help with finding some new tires, the michelin xps rib gets high marks in this forum but they are so expensive..... i don't want to skimp on the tires so if it's the best option maybe I'll have to ..

anyway nice to meet everyone. I am class B proud! i enjoy camping and really can't wait to get my RT in shape.

-Hank

Hi Hank,


welcome


I don;t have same as you- I have a 2006 PleasureWay on a 2005 Chev chassis
( common the RV model year is 1 later than chassis- good to know when looking for chevy parts)


I have posted recently on my tire search and end result, and also on replacing my seat base foam, and lubing the seat swivel


you can search for those if you want


Michelin Agilis Cross climate LT245/75R/16 cost me just under $800


cheers, Mike

Welcome to the forum Hank!


It's not cheap to get the proper load range E tires for your 210. You'll likely spend $600 to $800, so if you can afford the extra $200 get the Michelin Agilis suggested by Mike.

Thanks for your feedback! Intersting... you're saying those Michelin Agilis tires at LT245/75R/16 will fit my 96 RT 210 Popular? I was under the impression I needed LT 225, not LT 245. The tires from the PO that are on there now are also 225

I will look into them!

Oh I see now... They have in my size with the 225. These Agilis CrossClimates are looking like they are getting positive reviews on several sites, and they don't -totally- break the bank and seem to have good on wet roads....can anyone attest to this?

Thanks again you are all really nice to share your thoughts!!

Just to be sure you may want to double check the label on the door pillar to verify the correct tire size.

I bought the Michelin Cross Climates for my ‘92 Roadtrek 190 Versatile they’ve been just great. I wanted the best tire I could get, it’s such a heavy vehicle and I want to be safe. The proper tire size is shown inside the door jam of my drivers side door, at least in my Roadtrek.
