Best tire?
The ones that never wear out.
The ones that never age out.
The ones that you got for free.

For me, it's never anything but Michelins and they don't score high on any of the three above.

However, I will say, get another service center.

The tires most likely DO have a date code and I suspect a service center that can't find that date may be a little unqualified to give you other tire advice/service.

Sorry to be so blunt, but that's a dead giveaway that they are employing unqualified people. b

Only Michelin & Goodyear make tires specifically for RV use.
All the rest are primarily designed for trucks.

I just put a set of Goodyear 661 hsa 22.5 on my coach. Mounting and balanced plus tax 450.00 each. The Michelins Had a lot of cracking after 6 years, they were always covered. The tire shop claimed that is why he no longer sells Michelins. There is also a number of complaints with the NHTSA.

All I can say is 85 complaints so far on the NHTSA website on the xrv tires. I didn't see any for the hsa661 or g667. And how many of the blown Michelins didn't get reported. It's your dime and your safety good luck. I will listen to the experts on this one.

Hankooks

We installed Hankooks on our 40 DP then went to Alaska. Up the Alaska highway through the frost heaves back down turning on the Cassier Hwy yikes !! Through it all no blowouts, cuts, etc. This tires preformed flawlessly and they were $1000 less than the M tires.

We all know about "assuming"

Find a 10 year old. Show them the DOT on the outside and explain you want the 4 numbers at the end of the same code on the inside. Give em $2 and a flashlight
