Thank you all for all of your input. Tim
There will be many and varied opinions on which is the best tire brand of all those available on the market.

Keep in mind, the tires on your coach are the weakest link between your coach and the pavement.

For whatever it's worth, we've run Bridgestone tires on our coach for the last 15 years with zero problems, so based on my experience with Bridgestone tires I highly recommend them.

Good luck with your choice of tires and enjoy many safe travels...

Replaced Michellin XZE with XZE2 on 40' Coach. Unhappy with ride, rolling resistence, and noise. Immediately switched to Toyo M177. Much better in every way and wider tread with standard tire size provides much better handling through corners. I'm happy with our tires now. Good luck, this a tough one. Be careful of "cheap" tires made in China. Some are made there by reputable tire labels, but not all.

Steer tires all around are a good way to go.

Love my Hankooks on all 6 wheels that I purchased over a 18 months ago and would buy them again if I was doing it today.

Me too ! Hankook is a great tire. Off road racers, prefer Hankook. Hankook is building a plant in the US. I changed tag ( with new Alcoas too ) , steer drives better than Michleins. I now am doing the drivers, also new Alcoas. As required by Hankook.

What brand tire to buy

Everyone has different needs. We are F/T and have 8 Michelins aboard, and if I amortize the cost over 7 years it is about $74/month. I won't go broke on that!
They have superb ride and handle like a Caddy!
If I was an RV vacationer, I would go with Hankook. Heard much good about them and my Wrangler loves them.
On previous class C and gas A I used BF Goodrich. They were awesome!
That's about it for now

Why the requirement for new wheels? Do the Hankooks mount on a wider wheel?

Yes , coach had 315 22.5 Michelins on 8.25 rims which is ok . Hankook required 9.0 rims with 12R and 315s . I have 12R on my tag on new rims they are wider with Hankooks opposed to Old Mischlins , 315s on drive. I called Hankook and they said I should get wider rims. Glad I did, more rubber on the ground that way. For some reason only Mischlins will work on 8.25 rims. My coach has 9.0 on steer but came with 8.25 on drive and tag. I will next month go back to 12R on drive, as came from factory, better match up with tag that way.
