We have a 2011 Allegro Breeze that came with Michelin tires. So far we have over 8k miles on it and the tires show no wear. I have has great luck with them on my cars as well. So, Goodyear out Michelin in. Good luck!

Hi All..
I had a set of Goodyear s on my old Eagle.. Did very well other than a bit of "River Wear"
Since I have bought a Travel Supreme that had 2 year old Michelin's on on it.. And here I am one year later and checking on all the outside tires? Took it to a Michelin Dealer who said that is cosmetic.. Sorry!
I will never buy any more Michelin's ever!

They were about 2 years old when I bought them.. The DOT date confirmed that..

I am on my third purchased set of Michelin XRV's, have had excellent service from all. Check out the FMCA Michelin purchase program for good price via quality authorized Michelin dealer.

I just ordered new Michelins today for my 99 Beaver, the Goodyears on there were 7 years old and looked new. The reason I went with the Michelins was the discount from FMCA and the advice from and independent tire shop. From what I understand Michelin stands behind their products.

I have had Toyos, Goodyears, and now Michelin. I wouldn't have a Goodyear up my shorts even if I had room for a sawmill

Actually, I wouldn't buy either one.
There's way too many problems posted here regarding either brand.
And way too many other choices at lower price points.

Had a blowout on steer tire of previous coach, an HR Endeavor. Coach Net guy came out and as he approached us on shoulder of I-10 he shouted "Another Michelin sidewall zipper rip?" Made me think it wasn't his first. I have heard of several more where the outside dry rots and then blows out, looking like a zipper. I try not to let the mule kick me more than once. Bridgestone makes some tires IMHO as good as or better than Michelin at a lower cost. Start looking around at truck tires and keep track, Bridgestone vs.Michelin Ecopia™ tires from Bridgestone; R268 tire
this is a brand new tire series that replaces R250 and R260 series that were/are very good tires. Just put six of them on our coach, too soon to say much other than they feel a lot less hard compared to the oem Goodyear G670s. Good luck.
