Continental HSR1 275/70R22.5 tires

Hello I'm looking for opinions from Continental tire owners. I am currently looking at replacing my GY's, but I have been told Continentals are noisy and ride rough, these would be going on a 40' coach, is there any truth to the charge ?

I replaced GY's with Continental HSR 1 245/70R19.5 H load range, over four years ago. They are no noisier or ride harder the then GY I took off. The only time mine had a hard ride is when I first put them on the tire shop pumped them up to 120 PSI. I normally run the front at 80 and rears and tag at 85.

Bought our new to us 2003 Safari Sahara almost 2 years ago. It had the original Goodyears on from new. The dealer replaced them with Continental's HSR1 all the way around. I didn't want the HSR2 for drivers. 7000 miles later, still happy. I always keep all four at 110 and watch the front's for unusual wear or cupping, nothing yet. Wearing nice and even. We have a four air bag suspension. I remember when we test drove it on the old Goodyears, it was pretty harsh back then.

Thank you for your post road glide my GY G670's are aged out and show rivering, and I think the Continentals should work well.

Continentals

Hi Jeff
I put a pair on the steers about this time last year, removed aged out GY. After researching on line some of the trade articles I was sold. Plan is to replace the rears with same. No noise or ride issues. Also US manufactured if that matters to you. Take care.

Jeff,

I put Continental HSR2 SA 295/80R22.5 on my rear axle. I have Bridgestones on my steers that were put on before I bought the coach. My old Good Years I had on my rear axle were wearing weird and bumpy. After replacing them, getting the right pressures in all 6 tires after a good 4 corner weigh, my coach rides real smooth now. I've put about 6k miles on the Continentals.

Don
