Tires: Toyo vs Yokohama

Hello all,

My Good Year RV tires have timed out (7 years) so now looking for a suitable replacement. I don't want to pay the high price for Good Year RV tires. Up here in Canada they are close to $900 per tire.

Toyo 295 80R 22.5 H tires are $600 a piece. The same size Yokohama are $530 a tire.

Anyone have any opinions on Toyo vs Yokohama for a 2003 40' Windsor?

If you are paying $600 for one Toyo tire, you are getting hosed. I just bought 8 at around $400 apiece . I bought the M144 and have been pleased with them with the ride and handling.

FX rate is 1.33 so 400 us = 532 ca. Buying in Canada is expensive so the prices that were listed sound about right.

Unfortunately things are expensive up here in Canada as compared to the States. Americans are fortunate in many ways. Canada is a great country but the States have some definite advantages over Canada.

I'm just hoping for some feed back on Yokohama tires for our mh. Good or bad? Any comparisons to Toyo tires?

I'm happy with the Toyo tires I bought, but can't help with the Yokohama tires. Just make sure you compare the construction and weight rating. I seem to remember some positive reviews of Yokohama tires, but there have been a lot of positive reviews for the Toyo tires.
I hope you can get some more feedback!

The Toyos do have good reviews among the class A mh people. The Yokohamas are bit cheaper so I'm leaning that way, if others have a had good success with them.

I would say go with the best deal.
I have used both and didn't notice any real difference. Used Toyo's on autos and MH and Yokohama's on autos. Auto's were 4WD jeeps approx 50,000 mi each time. MH was DP with Toyo's, never regretted getting them.

Good luck with whatever you decide.

Oo oops, pressed send by accident. All tires are wearing evenly and ride, roll and stop very well. I don't remember what I paid...somewhere around $3400 out the door. much better ride than the Goodyears they replaced.

Last January bought 6 - Yokohama 255/70R22.5 RY023 16 ply on ebay for recently purchased used motorhome.

The old front date stamp was 0413 (Sampson) and the rear was 0408 (Yokohama). The price included everything (no tax) and were shipped to a local truck tire center. After a 10,000 mile on them, I am still happy.

Since tires must meet standards, matching the tires to the task seems to be the most important factor. Since the Yokohama lasted 10 years, I went with them. They were also made in the US.

Either Toyo or Yokohama will be superior to the Goodyears. The Goodyear G670 has a terrible reputation in the RV community.
I'm seeing lots of threads lately praising Toyo's.

Just a suggestion, maybe it would pay for a vacation south and install the new tires down here.
