22.5 New Tires Today TOYO

I have a gas 34lx National Dolphin with 22.5 wheels.

Removed the old 2007 Michelin Tires and put the new TOYOs on.

I am not sure but at 70mph they feel smoother. Maybe because they are brand new. So far I saved some cash and happy with look and feel of the new tires.

I enjoy my Toyos, although I set my cruise at 60 to save a few bucks on fuel.

I was talked into trying the cheaper Toyos two years ago. After 120 miles I had them removed and went back to Bridgestones. To me, the Toyos wandered and the Bridgestones run true. There was a very large and noticeable difference in the handling. Service Tire in Allentown, PA gave me full credit for the Toyo's and made the switch.

The overwhelming majority of posts I've read on various forums are by happy Toyo owners. I know they are well regarded in the trucking industry.

I'm thinking about replacing my tires with Toyos when I'm in Oregon a couple of months from now (no sales tax in Oregon and the Toyo tire dealer there is excellent - the Les Schwab chain).

Most people I know with Toyo tires are happy with them. I've never seen a tire cause a properly aligned vehicle to "wander". If front tires are not at same pressure then yoou could have increased roll resistance. This could cause pull.

I just replace my Michelins with Toyo. Have driven them about 250 miles and do not notice any difference. I got them in Redmond Oregon at the Les Schwarb dealer for $2750 mounted. They are 22.5's and I got all 6 replaced on my 2004 Neptune DP. As was said "No tax in Oregon" so I saved a couple of hundred plus. The quote they gave me for Michelins was $4160.

I drove 301 miles in extreme heat. The outside temperature in Needles Ca. when I went through was 118 and climbing. The tires were very smooth and never tracked wrong.

From my limited experience so far I saved a few dollars and feel I got a great set of tires.

I also switched from Michelin to Toyo last week. Have about 100 miles on them no issues.

I switched from Michelin to Toyo M154 265/75R22.5 LR G. So far they are much quieter. Could be because they are new and the Michelins were not. They were $333.93 each plus tax.
I like them.

The OEM tires on our coach were TOYOs and that is what we replaced them with. We've been very happy with them. Like others, we purchased ours in Oregon - we went with the Les Schwab dealer in Sutherlin, Oregon because we always stop there on our way north and do a few days of wine tasting.
