Hey Geoff

I took our coach for a test drive with the Toyos on before they put on the new Bridgestones. With the Bridgestones I noticed a smoother and quieter ride and a little less sway on corners. Are there better tires or just as good? I'm sure there are. I made my choice after a lot of reading and testimony from others.

Hi Jim

Thanks that's good to know as I will be replacing our tires in a year or so.

Depending on how old any rubber is..... it gets hard and less flexible over time. Think of a o-ring that has been around for years when you go to handle it you will see that it is stiffer and not quite as flexible as a new one....... tires are the same......
