Most truck tires are speed rated to "L", which is 75 mph, very few are rated to "M" which is 81 mph. What is your tire size?

Who exactly is going to run over a Class A motor home? I just crossed Texas at 62 mph and did not feel rushed at all. I stay in my lane and mind my own business.

I am a member of FMCA and they have a discount deal with Michelin, which I have taken advantage of before. The last time I replaced tires I went with TOYO after much investigation. Have put 5000 miles so far and cannot tell the difference other than the check book.

Most 315/80R22.5s are speed rated at 75 mph. If you are looking for fuel efficient tires, the most fuel efficient Michelin Tire is their new X Line Energy Z Coach. I would not advice the X Multi Way 3D XZE, because it's less fuel efficient and adds 15 lbs of weight to each wheel position.

Just put 6 of the new X line energy Z tires on the rears. I do not have much experience with the previous tires, but hopefully they are going to work as designed..

Thanks for the info. Just trying to justify the cost of michelin verses other brands that cost less. I figured they will age out before tread wears thin.

They will all "age out before the tread wears thin." You don't "wear out" motorhome tires, they wear themselves out with age.
