Tires

We have the Michelin's and have 8000 miles on them. They look brand new and handle great on the road.

I am on a third purchased set of Michelin XRV's in 19.5" sizes. Each replaced set with 20k plus miles on them and replaced due to age not wear or problem. Never a flat, blowout, or any other problem.

I run the XZE2s and the set on my rig has just over 100,000 miles......never been rotated.....still a little over half the tread life left and all have worn evenly. The Goodyear G670 couldn't go over 35-40k miles without being totally worn out.

98 percent of the tire posts here are universally negative on GYs. I've personally owed well over 150 SETS of GY truck / bus tires for my business and personal coaches....my office was across the street from a commercial GY tire center so for years I put up with overpriced and poorly made / designed GYs.......actually to the point of insanity...you know....doing the same thing over and over and hoping for different results.

I cannot say enough bad about GY heavy duty tires. I wouldn't run them if they were free. My purchasing agent is prohibited from buying anything GY including belts and hoses and I won't buy any new vehicles w GYs. I refuse to buy unless the dealer puts a different brand on.

Ive owned every tire you've ever heard of and a bunch you've never heard of most likely and all.....all....are better that GYs in my experience.

Knowing all that I have learned I would never trust my life to a GY.....I'd rather take my chances with Doublecoin or any other no name brand than a GY.

Just my opinion. No offense. Obviously some people like GYs bc they are still in business.

What size XZE2s are you running and what is the load range of these, I'm with yo on Good Years I've had them on 2 coaches and nothing but trouble.
