Another tire question

I have a 42ft. American Coach with recently purchased Michelin "Coach" tires on the steer position. A little advice on the drive and tag axles. I am definitely purchasing Michelin brand but what are you running? Size is 295/80 22.5. The Michelin tire charts are good but still a lot of choices in this size and position. Thanks

Why not put the Coach on the drive axle also? They are an all position tire and come in your size. I run the Michelin XZA2 Energy tires all around and I love them. The Coach tire is a little more expensive than the XZA2.

If you are a Family Motor Coach member don't forget the "Michilen Tire advandage" looks like a nice discount. I know that's not what you are asking, but thought I would mention it incase you didn't know.

Thanks Mike that helped compare the two easy. I have always run Michelin, just more choices now. Yes I know of the FMCA deal.

I don't think you can't go wrong with either tire. They say that the Coach tire will last longer but we never put enough miles on to wear them out. They always age out. They do say that because the Coach tire has a zig zag tread design that they offer a shorter breaking distance. Michelin also says the Coach tire is quieter than my tire but I can't hear my tires to start with.

Coach on the steer is the way to go, just wondering if that is overkill on drive and tag that's all.

If you are never going to rotate the tires then you could put the XZA2's on the back. It would save a little money and you would not be effecting quality.

That's sorta what I was thinking when I started this thread. I'll do a price check and find out. Thanks.
