I would only replace them with the same. The Michelin zipper thing was on XRV series, these I would not buy. Michelins may be more expensive but it seems all the top end rigs only use Michelin, Prevost, Newell and even Newmar. They claim to be rounder, or more true. What ever it is, it works. Many people regret changing components from OEM, and you probably will too. Good luck with your dicission.

My OEM Michelins were dated around 4007, I replaced them last November with Michelins only about 3 weeks old. I could have saved a few $$ by going with Toyo's on the drive axle (315/80's) but since I had to use Michelins for the tag and steer (365/70's) I stayed with Michelin through the FMCA Advantage plan. Saved about $300 per tire off list but then no one pays list unless you're stuck alongside the road and it's the only tire available. Actually saved about $150 per tire.

X2 on FMCA Advantage Plan. Can use it for car tires, too.

Before my Ventana, I had a 2007 gasser (Thor Hurricane) which came with Goodyears. I never really liked them, so when I needed to replace them, I went Michelin and really noticed a difference in ride and handling...

if you are not going to wear out a tire but have it time out with 75% tread still on why not go to a value brand at a fraction of the price? i run Salon "spelling"? on my repo trucks, they do wear out faster then the factory tires but are only $125 for a 245-70-19.5. i know they make a tire in 11r-22.5 that is around $245 ea

I just went from Bridgestone to Yokos this past spring. I liked both tires but I saved a lot on the Yokos. Same tread patterns and the new tires are very quiet.

Two comments about tire quality. 1. have you seen what a blowout can do to fiberglass?

2. How much is your families safety worth?
