Yes I saved so much money on the tires I was able to buy Wheels.

I bought 2 fronts Alcoa, 2 rear outside Alcoas, and 2 steel inner rear Accurides with hub and nut covers valve stems and balancing beads.

Yokahamas keep coming up and an attractive price at 321.00 a tire shipped to my door.

Recent price check on Goodyear G-670 643.99 a tire, Mich XZE are not currently available but due in shortly at 649.37

Any feed back on Yoks

At Half Price it is Pretty attractive.

I had rivering issues with Goodyear tires. Google it on the internet. For the amount of time we spend driving versus sitting, Yokohama, Toyo and Hankook's are all good tires. I purchased the Yoko RY123 16 ply for my MH and I am very pleased!

Did the same thing last year and love them.

When you shop be sure to look for the speed rating (or ask the tire guy) since some of the tires have a lower speed rating and you probably want the 70 MPH rates yoko's

Good luck!

I see you made the purchase but I did not see what brand and size. How are they performing for you?

For my Sahara, 6 Yokohamas 255R72x22.5 16 ply H range, mounted, valve stems, Equal balance by a truck tire outfit $2550. I have no frame of reference vis-a-vis Michelins, but they seemed to ride smootherk than the GY 9R22.5s they replaced. Had Hankooks on the other bus. They seemed to be hard.

I put the Sumitomos on my Diplomat and have been happy with them.

I just did a search on the Yokohama website and they don't show a category for RV tires, and don't show anything for 295-80R-22.5 tires!

I installed a set of yoko and just returned from a 5500 mile trip and cannot complain, the tire ride well and are not noisy. I have a friend in the trucking business and have run them for years and has had very good service with them and installed a set on his coach.Go for it.
