What tires for a 2013 Canyon Star 3610

Looking at purchasing the noted unit and it needs new tires. Considering Toyo's 245-75R-22.5 G load or 250-70R-22.5 load h. Current tires are Michelin 235-80R-22.5 load g. I am looking at the Load H tires for a better ride but not sure what unintended consequences may occur?

I was a Michelin man for years. I am a member of FMCA so I got a good discount. There seemed like there were more and more problems the last time I bought them, side wall cracking after a couple years, a huge bulge in another. Just not what I expected from a premium tire. Last set I bought was Toyo, 3 years ago and so far I have been pleased. No problems at all and I cannot feel and difference in ride. Bottom line, very satisfied with Toyo and saved a bunch of money even with the FMCA discount.

On my previous coach the Baystar 3124 I had Michelins and previous ones too, all my cars I have Michelins our new coach has Michelins I always use Michelins even when they come with some other brand I replace them with Michelins, more important its proper care of your tires I replace the tires every 5 years on the coach on my cars its more often.

Thank you for the responses. My question is not whether to go with Toyo or Michelin. My question is what are the unintended consequences of going from a load rate "G" tire to a Load rate "H" tire. Appreciate any and all assistance.

All Newmars have always had Michelin tires under them and most of us have had excellent miles on them.
The Tireman9 may have a better answers for you in comparing different makes of tires good or bad he is found in this link from this link for new or old Newmar owners.

Iím not sure I would mess with that, as long as I can remember in cars and trucks itís always someone trying to go tall, wider, shorter etc but never had anyone change tire based on the weight rate of a tire however the speed rating no problem my buddyís did that to cars all the time. I have no experience using G over H weight, tires are made and engineered for certain weight, handling and bla bla, a 16 ply tire will (H) definitely be more expensive and heavier too, and you canít exceed the axle axle weight so what is the point? As for a ride in my opinion is that it will worst a 16 ply tires are thicker and stiffer specially the side walls to be able to handle the added weight. RV ride depends a lot more in a combine factor like type of suspension, tire inflation, alignment, weight etc tire is just one part of this equation, I know It cost me a fortune upgrading my BayStar at the end I sold it I realized I could never turn a pumpkin into a carriage Not sending you off but this is a question you should be asking a very good tire manufacture like Michelin or any other that you prefer they all have excellent customer service, your life depends on it.

Very good points ZZOTTE why mess with what has been designed for the coach by redesigning all over again, big difference between a Bay Star or Canyon Star gas and any DP, Newmar has a coach for everyone now with the SUPER C, all with Michelin tires.

Not really sure but I would expect the H to ride a little harder than the G. The H is going to be a heavier tire and I think will require more air pressure. You would have to check the manufacturer's load charts to see exactly.

Looking at the Load Charts the PSI will b e from 10 to 20 pounds less depending on the 4 corner weighing.

Hi John - To go up one load rating should not have a down side for you. The higher rated tire will have a stiffer sidewall so the ride will be somewhat stiffer but the lower required PSI will likely overcome that.
