I purchased new tires. Yokahama RY103

So my XRV's were ancient and cracked and needed replaced. And, since I am helping someone shop for a good used diesel rig I have also seen several used coaches with cracked Michelin tires that were not as old as they looked, so I opted to not go with the XRV again.

After reading up and also discussing tires with some family members that own commercial trucks I chose the Yoko's. I have not driven the rig much so far, but from what I could tell the ride seems to feel the same now as before, and I should mention that my rig is empty as we nearly sold it last fall so we cleaned it out, then had a change of heart on selling the old gal.

I ran 90 psi on the XRV's (per the Winnebago door tag), but since these are a heavier side wall I opted to try 80 & 85 right out of the gate. So far so good.

I think I got a fair price, $2100 out the door all in for 6 245-80 22.5 tires mounted and spun balanced. Taylorsville tire in Taylorsville Indiana was the shop.

As these tires age I will share updates.

I sent a email to Michelin becausre the ones on mine are cracking already. I told them I felt they owed me new tires as a 2 year old RV with 13 k should not need $4000 for new tires. Tire guy came to me and took tire depths and photographed them. They were only 1/32 worn from new. Michelin agreed and are replacing them. I get the new ones on tomorrow. All I pay for is mounting and balancing. Didn't want to push it further.

My xrv tires were aged out, i think they were 10 years old if i recall, so the cracking on mine was not out of order, but shopping used coaches this winter and this spring has talked me out of more Michelin tires. The cracking did not go through to the inside, so at least they were not as scary as they looked.
