We've had our Hankook AH11s since 2010. Fabulous tire. Have gone over many forest service dirt roads. Also our speed limits here are 70 mph so lots of time at high speeds. Have been fabulous riding and great stability. No complaints. Here is the 8R19.5 size.

I have sailun on mine . Put them on last year. They ride good and the truckers say they really like them. They are the cheapest tire I found.

One common thread I see is that no matter the tire, someone has had good experience with them. I am looing for a tire that no one has had a bad experience with. So far Hancook and Toyo are two middle to upper tier tires that are coming out on top. Michelin, Goodyear, Roadmaster, and most others seem to have at least some negative reports. I guess I am not looking for the cheapest tire available (Hercules 902's) nor the most expensive (Goodyear G670's).

I found no bad reports on Samson tires and will get them as soon as I can afford it.

CJ7ole-- I also have a Winnie Adv. 32V (2001). I bought it with 14,000 miles on it in 2010 with OEM tires. I had GY tires purchased in Feb. 2007 on my 1999 Adv. 35C with 30,000 miles on them and interior tire pressure monitors, so I switched them on to the 32V. (We had purchased the 35C new, but DH fell into a coma in 1999 and passed in 2005. There were 63,000 miles on the 8 year old OEM GY tires when I had the outer rear dual blow out in Dec. 2006 (NO damage!) With the good service I had gotten with the OEM GY tires, I bought 2 GY670s, moved to the front, in Georgia, then bought 4 more in MIchigan.) So now I have 28,000 more miles on those (total of 58,000) and they're date coded July 2006. I drove to the FMCA Rally in Madison, WI in July but don't think I should leave them on any longer. Next trip will be Florida. When checking my date codes I noticed they were all made in USA. I'm obviously getting very good service from GY 670s and thought I'd get the same again. But in reading this forum, I'm wondering if they are still made in USA and if they're just as good as my old ones. What did you finally decide to do? Where did you shop as I'm in your area? Is there a good reason to save some money and switch brands. I'm a widow on a fixed income now, but I drive alone and want to make a safe, dependable choice. I recently abandoned the 2007 TPMS (no longer operating) and installed a new, easier to install system (at the Rally-- nervous about my old tires.)

Being a noob, I got hammered when I bought my class A this summer. The DOT was 2003! The were the factory originals, although they were in excellent condition, (my 2004 only has 15,000 miles on it). After talking to some truckers, I bought 6 RoadX RH520 tires for 170.00 USD each. I've taken them out on several trips this summer and they seem fine. I'll save my final review of them for after I reach Florida in two weeks.

These are the same as the Road X's that I'm talking about. They are made in China, but then again, it seems that most tires are these days.

Like you said, truckers seem to like them.

Like I said in my original post, the GY 670's are my first choice, but being also the most expensive choice are off the table this time. I am going with the Hancook AH 11's as they seem to get the most consistent best recommendations with no negative comments and they are a grand cheaper for 6 than the G670's. Problem is that the tire shops in the Waterford area can't find any in stock. Even having trouble getting a callback from SimpleTire on availability. I will post again when I finally get tires on. As I am leaving for FL next Friday, so it should be shortly.

Wouldn't that be more expensive ? And what real difference would this make ?

Looking at times myself...

Thanks

When I got my Hankook AH11s the tire shop was just about to put a tire order in. I had to wait almost 2 weeks but needless to say I received very fresh tires as per the date code. Good luck with your search.

I bought 6 19.5 Cooper Roadmaster installed for $1995. $238 per tire plus mounting of each at $39 plus a few extra charges. They are great tires, I just got back from a 3000 mile trip.

Have you looked at Firestone?

I bought 6 FS560'S for 270 each plus tax. Was 1850ish out the door. I am very happy with them.

Tuesday I am getting 6 Hancook AH-11's installed locally for $2204. Tried Simple Tire, would have saved me hundreds, but they only had 4 in stock. Firestones still aren't on my radar after the Ford/Firestone tread separation debacle years ago. Too many other choices.

That was 15 years ago...Firestone are basically Bridgestone. My tires have held up well, they are extremely affordable and made in USA. I have heard good things about Hancook. Good luck, hope they serve you well.
