Bridgestone R 250ED Tires

I'm leaning toward getting a set of 6 of these tires (275 70 R22.5). I've been to 3 dealers and each one has recommended these over the Michelin or Goodyear as equal in performance. Anyone have any experience either good or bad?

I just finished 8 years of service from my Bridgestone 10R 22.5 tires. Had lots of tread left, but some cracking around the sidewall.

However, I returned to Toyo for the next set due to price. Quality seems to be similar.

I have had two 11R by 22.5 steer tires on the front of my 40ft Class A for about 5 years now--good treat wear and no sidewall cracking. Bridgestone has a very good reputation for making strong sidewalls--not sure how important that is for a light duty applications like RV. I see you were looking at the ED model--as I recall that is the extra duty sidewall for high scrub applications--probably not needed on an RV and might provide for a rougher ride.
PS would never use Goodyear for an RV again; but you need to check out FMCA pricing on Michelin before you seal the deal....

I've been running 250's Bridgestone on my Windsor of 7 years on the front and 5 years on the rear. I can' tell any wear at all, have ~50k on the front. No sidewall cracking at all.

I replaced my OE Michelin 255/80R22.5s with Bridgestone R250s, 265/75R22.5 tires about 25,000 miles ago. Absolutely no problems or complaints whatsoever. As with any tire, air pressure management is very important.

I put on Bridgestones in March 2014. Close to 25,000 miles later, they are working just fine. (Btw, they replaced Michelins with severe sidewall cracking.)
