No experience with Falken large tires. I put a set of Falken on my toad, at Discount Tire. Had a flat on one of the front tires on the way to Houston. It had a small-diameter piece of wire in it. Discount replaced the tire for me, for $11, in Houston. They're doing fine now.
I didn't even know Falken made large tires, so this post is probably not any help to you.

Depending upon where you are at, I got that same tire at Ed Whiteheads in AZ (4 locations in the sw) for $3300+- installed including tax 6 tires. Happy with them. I was actually able to negotiate the price down by using price comparison.

16 ply or load range H means nothing without the size. Your Imperial, besides being a spectacular coach is fairly heavy. The steer axle is rated at 14,600 and Iíll bet you weigh within 5-800 pounds of that. If the dealer is quoting a 295/75 or a non metric size, chances are good that the tire isnít rated to carry that steer axle weight or only at a pressure over 120 psi. Make him tell you exactly what heís quoting. Tire dealer try to sell whatís in stock regardless of your needs.

Steve is correct in cautioning you on the front axle tire weights. Some owners have gone up to the 315/80 front tire to reduce tire pressure and improve the ride.
You also need to be concerned about the tire dates. Some dealers will offer great prices on older stock just to move it.

Check the prices on the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) Advantage program. They have Michelin, Continental, and even some other brand tires available at great prices. You do not have to be a member to check the pricing, but you do have to join to purchase. In most cases the membership fee is more than offset by the great prices.

Tires

I was in the market for tires for my coach a few months ago ( last February ) and priced Michelin at a number of places close to my home. Found them to be rather costly and at the suggestion of a rather large tire shop, the manager there suggested Toyo tires.
Did some internet research on the Toyo and ended up purchasing a full set of 6 Toyo's for about $2000.00 less than the Michelins would have cost me. Paid $2500 installed & balanced inclusing disposal fee for the old tires.
Made a trip to Indialantic Florida (3000 miles round trip ) and then to a Nashville suburb (1800 miles round trip ). They've been trouble free and improved the ride of my coach considerably.

I guess what I'm saying is to look at the Toyo's !

Think what you have discovered is that not many know of the Falken 16 ply that you were asking about - Michelin and Toyo have many followers -


IMHO the most important thing you can do is just careful daily inspections - then drive Smart. Most tire failures are due to underinflation and/or overweight.

Throw in the occational Road Hazard just to cover the bases,

JMHO,
