What brand tire to buy

I have a 1998 Country Coach Affinity and would like to know what brand tire to install for a safe and reliable ride. I had Goodyear's on my other coach that were made for RV's and that resisted to sun rays. I know there are a lot of tire brands out there like Michelin, Bridgestone, Hankook, Toyo
Yokohama and Cooper tires.
Thank you all for all of your input. Tim

I just put 6 Michelins on our 97 Intrigue. I could not find a 22.5 that carried more that a 275/80R22.5 XZE load rage H. I got them from my tire suppler in Akron but Simple Tire had a good price to.

I replaced the Good Year tires with Michelin two years ago and am pleased with the ride improvement. If you belong to FMCA you can save a lot of money.

WHat tires to buy??

Just replaced old Michelins with 295/80/R22.5 Toyo M144s. Like the ride, love the price. Used glass beads for balance.

Our fronts and tag are 365/70's so were pretty much "stuck" with Michelins, which isn't a bad thing!

The original tires on the coach were Toyo's 10 + years great service no problems, still looked to be in great shape when removed. Replaced with Firestones last summer so far everything is fine, they seem to ride a little better than the Toyo's.

I'm running Bridgestone R250s on my coach. I like them. Also like Michelins.

We installed Hankook AH-12 tires. They've been great for over three years.

I have had Toyo, Goodyear, and Michelins.

The Toyo was ok, the Goodyear sucked and the Michelins are running fine

I went with Bridgstones


https://photos.google.com/photo/AF1Q...U2ANbfcpibnvyi

I just replaced the 9 year old Michelin's with 295 80R/22.5 R268 Ecopia Brigsestones and Centramatic Balancer's.

Tire Balancers, Tire Balancing, Wheel Balancer and Wheel Balancing from Centramatic

The Centramatic's were highly recommended and I just could not justify the cost of new Michelin's.

The ride home was great, waiting for the first trip in June.
