As there is no information given concerning the "RV" to be purchased, it would be hard to comment......May we assume you've read the pages and pages that come up when googling "Continental RV tire REVIEWS"?

Just My Opinion here and what I dealt with working at a Auto/truck Dealership,Continental tires were JUNK! We spent more time warranting them out because of uneven wear. Just My Opinion, JUNK!

I put continental tires on the front of my 2005 37DP allegro bus. I have not seen any wear on them yet and I do not feel any difference driving them than the goodyear tires it had on it previously.

I have used continental tires on motorcycles for years and I think some of the higher end European cars have them as standard when they leave the factory. I have never had anything but good luck with them.

I've been running Continental HSR2's on the rear axle of my coach for a 1.5 years now and am quite happy with them.

I'm rather amazed to see another report calling them "junk" - Conti is a well-known, worldwide tire manufacturer and their performance tires are standard equipment on some European models.

My Car and Boat trailers like them. 1 single 1 double and 1 triple axel. The boat trailers get rolled down the hiway in 100 degree temps and then dipped in cool water, never a blowout.

Ford installed HSR's on my 2012 Winnebago. I have kept a close eye on them and find no unusual ware. I like the heavy tread and expect to get extra miles out of them. Unless I have problems down the road, I would consider them as replacements when needed.

I've have had continentals on a 40 footer for 2 years and they ride as good as any brand I've ever had.When I originally purchased them dealer put tires on with a year old date that I didn't find out till I got home.I got hold of continental and within a week all tires were replaced with new up dated tires.You sure don't find that often.

I've used Continental and General tires in fleet operations, local delivery and over the road with very good results. Like any tire, a good tire maintenance program is essential for good, long trouble free service.

I have had eight Continental HSR-1 on my Dolphin since 2010 and over 10,000 miles on them. Do not see any unusual wear, side walls still look new.
