The damage that a blow out causes can be substantial. The average damage on an RV is around $4,300 not to count the risk of people dying.
What is going on with your tires that makes them turn brown and crack in the first place? From the day the tire is made it starts to oxidize. Go to any RV lot and look at the browning of the tires on new RVs. That is an indicator that the oxidation has already began, but it is not the fault of the dealer, (however they could pre-treat the tires with Extend to prevent the damage), it is the oils in the tire starting to dry due to UV Damage and exposure to the elements. Left untreated those tires will continue to degrade until you start to see small cracks on the outside of the tire. When that happens, it is time to get new tires because it is unsafe!
Our tire protection is like a sunscreen that protects your tires from the UV Rays and Oxidation that causes the tire to dry out and crack. If you apply the tire protection to the outside of your tires 1 to 2 times per your you will get the full life from your tires.
How long will it last?
The tire protection will make sure your tires last up to the legal limit they are suppose to be on the road; known as the DOT Date. This is a date the Department of Transportation says is the maximum time a tire can be on the road for “safety” reasons. If your tires are beyond that date and your have a blow out, harm someone else, you are at fault and liable because of neglect.
How do you apply it?
Applied with a sponge applicator. See application instructions
Can Extend be used to repair tires instead of replacing?
NO! Once you have cracks in your tires they are shot, but if they are just brown and dry you can prevent further damage.
