See lots of them on trucks.. These, Double Coin, Triangle, Sampson, etc.. All 'lesser known' but actually quite good selling Chinese.. I like Double Coin myself.

Sumitomo is a good Japanese tire thats also reasonably priced..

sure LR G would be even better cause you could carry less air in it for your weight and have a softer ride

I was also looking at the Hercules H-902 Tire. I need 4 so at $800 shipped compared to $1250 for the Continental it seems to make sense. What do yo think?

I wouldn't be afraid to put Hercules tires on, but I wanted the LR-F tires for the better ride. I do have Gladiators on the front (installed by the dealer before I bought the coach) and they are LR-H, a stiffer ride, but overall they have been good the past year and a half and almost 4500 miles.

I only have 700 miles on mine to home as I had to have a major operation back home. I checked them yesterday as i Put wood underneath them for the rainy season now starting. they all have full air in them so no leaks during the 5 months since they were installed.
I bought them in Eugene, Oregon to save the sales tax so I was out the door for 1400.00 for 6 of them. So far so good. I note that a lot of RV'ers are now running these tires and never talked to anyone not happy with them............yet
