I forgot to mention the motorhome came with the G670s but in load range F. We replaced them with the same tires only switching to load range G in 2007 just before heading to Alaska. The coach now has almost 95,000 miles with 45,000 on the second set.

Bridgestone R260 295/75R22.5 LRG

Absolutely. In 40 K wore 3/32 of the fronts and 5-6/32 of the rear.

q1. What brand/model/size tires are currently on your coach.
q2. If you were to replace your tires tomorrow, would you replace them with the same tire (yes or no).
q3. If no, without reason, justification, or excuse - What is the brand/model/size tire you would replace them with.


A1: Michelin XRV 22.5"
A2: YES
A3: does not apply, however if you want to know why I'd stick with them, The tires I have are giving good service, and may well have been made by the man who cuts my hair (Depending on just when he left Michelin)

Q1:Bridgestone R250 295/80 R22.5
Q2: Absolutely Bridgestone, either these or the R260 295/75 R22.5 like Tom and Patty, which is a little more common size. Ours have shown almost no visible (unmeasured) wear in 21,000 miles; air pressure 20 psi lower than the factory Toyo 11R22.5. Ride a lot softer and handle a lot better. Hard to beat Bridgestone for tread depth and wear.

1. What brand/model/size tires are currently on your coach.
2. If you were to replace your tires tomorrow, would you replace them with the same tire (yes or no).
3. If no, without reason, justification, or excuse - What is the brand/model/size tire you would replace them with.

Thanks for the reply's everyone. Shame on all those who couldn't stop themselves from adding opinions. Especially the opinion about religion AND politics. Wow. Flagrant rule-breaker!!!

My take-away is that the vast majority are happy with the leading nationally recognized brands. Also, beyond those with developed brand loyalty (or hatred), best available price is really the deciding factor.

Thanks again for all those that took the time to help me confirm my suspicions.

Safe, happy travels to all!

You also need to do a search on this forum regarding tire sizes by brand and the potential impact on tach and odometer readings....
