Continental Tires

Has anyone used the Continental HSR-1 245/70R19.5 tires? Any comments on these tires?

I put Continental HSR2's on the rear duals last year and so far they are doing great. Mine are the 11R22.5 size, quite a bit larger than 245/75R19.5

The HSR2 is pretty much the same tire as the HSR1.

I've been running 255x70x22.5 on mine for 5 years and 50,000 miles. perfect with no issues. They were recommended by the Good year dealer who said they are great tires. Thats my 2 cents worth!!

Ran Continental and General tires in fleet operations with excellent results - primarily 11R22.5. As with any brand, air pressure and tire maintenance are key factors in tire life and tire performance.

Thanks for your input. I was looking at the Michelin XZE but the dealer said the Continental was every bit as good and at over $100 a tire saving. There were some bad reviews on other websites as "not good traction on dry pavement" and not smooth running.I just wanted any ideas you might have.

In doing a little research, I noticed that Continental has developed its own tire specially made for RVs and buses, the HSR2 SA. I've ruled out Goodyear and I'm very close to nixing Michelin due to some complaints here (but mainly at RV.net). However, I'm interested in these HSR2 SA tires for my '07 Diplomat, but I haven't found many reviews yet. Anyone have any experience with these tires? I'm going to try and get prices today.

I'm of the opinion that MOST non-Chinese tires will work in the 19.5" size.. And even then, there are some Chinese ones that will work too.. Remember, the 19.5" is still considered 'light to medium truck' duty..

I think the HSR2 SA only comes in 22.5". Unfortunately, the two local dealers I spoke with are wanting around $622-$640 each for these in 275/80/22.5. My local Costco sells Michelin XZEs for $547 each.
