P.S. I like Toyos too; ended up putting 147's on the front and 122's in back. They give fine mileage.
Thank you for the input... I thought so too.
According to max axle GVW #'s on the coach and weight rating on the the tires, G's are well within the recommended limits.
The coach had a matched set of six G rated Toyos (code dated 1906) when I got it. I deciced that I would match what was on it ...while replacing the front two.
.. and rotated the front tires to the right rear to replace the one damaged tire and the slightly scuffed one, as per previous post.
I'm thinking that I will put two new ones two on the front next year and two more the next....for safety mostly. But that will be less expensive and then I will do it every two years from then on....always putting "new" tires on front and rotating the front tires to the rear. I'll have fresh tires on front at least every year or two....and tires well within the recommended age limit on the rear.
I believe that the balance on front tires changes at least every two years...as does the flexibility of the rubber. That insures that I have live rubber with a recent balance on the font ones more frequently than I would have if I just bought new set every 6/7 years. Which is the recommended replacement age. (Actually some tire men think 7/8 years...if very low mileage like I have put on RVs in the past).
I can testify that just replacing the front tires and balancing all the rest made a very noticeable difference on this rig.
I said this before...but think it worth repeating, since I did a lot of tire work when I was young, and currently have a passenger car computerized tire balancer in my hot rod shop.
...the balancing sand that some tire shops put in tires is a rip off in my opinion. I "watched" them try to balance the older tires on a almost new Hunter computerized truck tire balancer (expensive). The weight kept creeping to a new spot every time (in other words would't balance). That's when we discovered the previous owner had installed the balancing sand.
I had them break down all the older tires, clean the sand out, examine the tires inside thoroughly and then try to balance them again. They "all" balanced quickly and perfectly then.. (and with less weight than the balancer was calling for with the sand).
Nothing beats a good balance job....skip the sand and other gimics.
Opinions vary of course...
