Goodyear or Toyo

I have a two quotes
Goodyear 670 245/70R 195 six of 'em mounted and balanced $2,791.
Toyo M143 245/70R 195 six of 'emmounted and balanced $2,550.
Not much difference in price. I am leaning toward the Toyo's. Anybody have a big opiion on either of these?

You will get every answer you want to your question. If you have not had problems with your Goodyear's I would stick with the chassis MFG's placement of Goodyear's.
GOODYEAR TIRES maintenance.
I do the same with the Michelin's on my coach, never had problems or blowouts on three Newmars I have owned.

You do know the Goodyear come in a G or H rating.
How about the Toyo.
Are you pricing apples to apples?

I put those same toyos on my coach last year (rpelacing goodyears) and couldn't be happier. The coach rides better, and doesn't tend to follow ruts and cracks in the pavement as badly.

Toyo M143's would be better.
