Matt,

Yes they are quieter. Not by much. They certainly have a better "road feel" for what that's worth. My real reason for changing was the greater load carrying capacity.

Our Alpine Coach was delivered from the factory to the dealer on April 22, 2005, the 17th week of 2005. The oldest date code on the tires was 23rd week of 2004. The tires were 46 weeks old on delivery from WRV, so be sure to check your tire date codes; five years may be up a lot sooner than you expected.

I decided to stay with our original 11R22.5 tire size which is not available in the Goodyear G670, so our old tires were replaced with Goodyear G662 RSA Fuel Max. This tire is designed for regional highway and local driving which matches our normal day of driving.

John

General Tires

Has anyone had any experience with General Continental Tires. There are about 5 of us who all need tires. Looks like most are replacing with Good Year. If anyone has any imput I would really appreciate it.

There may not be a dimes worth of difference between all the aforementioned tires--or maybe there is. Seems like application would dictate the best tire selection, eg, not sure a standard truck tire will satisfy an RV application. The average tire age for a long-haul trucker is probably measured in months not years. Accordingly, a trucker is looking for an economical, high mileage, tough wearing tire, while an RVer is looking for good ride, good handling and UV-resistance[age-out not wear-out]. Can you get both in a single tire at an "economical" price--perhaps?

Truck tires are job specific as well , not "standard" ..

I think most any "name brand" is a good choice .. A matter of personal preference ..

I dont see paying the price for the top two choices , when there are tires as good and better for substantially less money available ..
