Best Tires for a Class A

We have a 2000 Allegro (recently purchased it) and I believe the tires are about ten yrs old. My husband and our service center could not find dates on them. We have never had blow out because my husband has always been good about replacing and rotating them. He wants to buy all new tires before we head out this summer and is wonder about some feedback from people that have experience with their tires. He has been looking at Cooper and Dunlop. Anyone have an opinion of what is best? Thanks Barbara

I have Cooper RM120 on my class A and I like them. They have been mounted for four years and show very little wear.
I would replace them with Cooper again.

If you want the best, get Michelins. We got our second set mounted yesterday.

I can't give any advice on the tires, I have not shopped for MH tires.

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.

If these tires were somehow imported from another country (illegally), they may not have the codes. Highly unlikely, though. The date code is a US Dept. of Transportation requirement for any tire sold in the US.

OP, there is supposed to be dates on all tires sold in the USA, one may need to really look on the tires but the dates are there. What size tires are on the MH now? For me, I stay away from Goodyear as replacement tires, but that I just me! There are several good tires out there, but I tend to drift towards the Firestone/Bridgestone brand. I had them on my last MH and just installed two on the front of our current MH. What ever you do, shop around for price as there are some good deals and there are some that are not.
Good luck and keep us posted.

Take a look at Toyo, I put a full set on a year ago and 4000 mi taking Michelins off due to cracking real bad. The Toyos ride better I think, cost less I know, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another set down the road.

Take a look at Hankooks. I am really happy with mine. Price was good and they don't have the Michelin sidewall problem.

Consider joining the FMCA and get a discount on a new set of tires. Cost is low and the deal is great. Through FMCA you buy direct fro Michelin or Goodyear through a local dealer. Check out the FMCA website and go from there. Just a helpful tip.

Goodyears hold pressure better than any others I have used.

We put Toyo on ours 18 months and 8500 miles later we are very pleased. They were way less expensive than Michelin even with the FMVA discount

As far as date codes go, they are only required to be on one side of the tire. They could very well be on the inside.

If I buy a vehicle (and have) that I cannot find date codes on I assume that they are one year older than than coach-and act accordingly. YMMV
