We have a 1995 Class B Explore on a Dodge 3500. I keep having to put new tires mainly on front. The belts keep slipping. I have had 3 different make of tires. The tires are Lt225/75R16 front and. LT245/75R16 on rear. Getting ready to sell but dont really want to. Just got her all fixed up. Any ideas out there please.

Bad steering parts, could be steering gear, frame mount flex, any/all of the steering linkage, even wheel bearings, bad shocks.


Wheel alignment. If both worn on outside or inside, toe would be suspected.

Sounds like the tire is defective, if the belt has slipped.

Do a VIN check to see if your unit was reported to be in a major accident. Bent frame, front end...

What driving symptoms does it give to indicate belt slipping? Does it handle normally when good tires on it? Load range E tires? The odds of having belt issues in 3 brands on the same vehicle is almost certainly not the tires, and your dealer should have known that and found out what was really wrong.

Are you buying tires suitable for the weight of the van?
