If you already have Toyo and you are satisfied with them why go to something else. When my Badyear tires went I replaced them with Firestone's and have been very happy with them. They were a little cheaper than the Toyo's.

Two things come to mind:

1) On an RV like these Country Coach's you will never wear out the tires. They will hit the service life long before they run out of tread. Replacement suggestions are 5, 7 and some like to push them to 10 years. I changed mine between 5 and 7 years.

2) I have put on 3 sets since I bought my coach in 2001, two sets of Bridgestones and the current ones are Sumatomo's ST727"s.
I started with 51K on the coach and now have a little over 188,000. The Bridgestones seemed to be a little softer on the ride then the ST727's but all in all they all have served me well.

I'm a bit anal on tire pressure as I check them all the time but that seems to be one of the culprits of tire problems, uneven pressures in the duals, not so much for the steer.

The only reason I went to the Sumo's is I went back to the size that CC specified and Sumo had a great sale going on at the time, hard to pass up a good sale on BIG tires.

Bottom line is I feel if you stick with a name brand and keep the air pressure where it needs to be then any of the top rated tires should work well.

Hope this helps and good luck....

Long lasting is probably the same for all major brand tires that are properly maintained by the operator. The tire rubber will age out before wearing out unless you are doing 20,000 miles per year.

I have read that the average recreational use is about 5,000 miles per year. That is also our long term average.

We just installed AH37 Hankooks in our Dutchstar. Really like them. They’re a new design, only sold since June 2017, but truck tire place in Yuma REALLY liked them. Said they are the best wearing/riding truck tire he sells.

This is one of those Chevy vs Ford, Dino vis Synthetic, Gasser vs DP conversations. No right or wrong, and often times - what someone starts with, is what they keep using! (And note 'Wrong to say no wrong!', getting a tire that is properly sized and load ranged for your specific coach, is a 'right' move!).

I've had Toyo's, Michelin, and BF Goodrich ST230's.

My last two sets have been Michelin. First wet were XZE*'s, a very robust tire. (Check tire weights on the spec's sheets, and this is the heaviest tire in my size that I saw, more 'meat' in the sidewalls, for regional delivery/school bus usage, where opportunities to bounce of curbs can take place!. And this current set are XZA2's, which ride better, and I so far like (Coming up on two years on them.)

I had two of the XZE*'s damaged by a pot hole impact, during a Michelin tire shortage, so bought the BF Goodrich ST230s. These had been my second choice, when I had bought the first set of XZE*'s. I put these new tires on the Steers, and they rod a little softer then the XZE*'s. They're now on my Tag's.

The Toyo's were OEM from CC, and were 5 or so years of age when I bought the coach used. I have not idea how they were maintained by the 1st owner. But I found their ride to be harder then the XZE*'s, and the front end seem to wander a bit more too. (But that could have been age, and possible uneven wear based on poor maintenance of the 1st owner. So just sharing my observation, and not saying that Toyo's are a bad tire. I do not remember the tire model number.)

When researching for this current set of XZA2's, I also considered putting Hankook's on coach. Recommended to me by a Tire Manager that I know and respect at TCI in Lakeside, California. Came close to putting them on the drive and the Tag, and Michelin on the Steers, as I normally do not rotate the tires. And the Tire Manager said his feedback from others, is that the Michelin's XZA2's rode a little nicer, with less road transfer to the front end, then the Hankook's. AH11 or AH12 (Can't recall which one.) And, I was told by him, that he 37's would be out soon, and that they're a good tire.

Other tires I considered, and are worth researching are the Continentals, and the Yokohama's. And, I can recommend the BF Goodrich ST230 as a less expensive tire then the Michelin, and they ride fine, and get deserved good reviews.

If you are a member of FMCA, they have group discounts on Michelin, BF Goodrich, and Continental's. So that is away of possibly saving some funds.

Best of luck to you,
Smitty

No tire is long lasting in the motor home world, you are lucky you got 7 years.
Maybe someone has worn a set out but it always time that causes the problem.
Tires that aren’t driven, smog, sun, global warming all cause them to fail.
A failed tire can cause a lot of damage and accidents.
5 years max for me, I’ve had a six year old tire fail on me.
