Changed my timed out (with sidewall cracking) Michelins for 6 Sumo's. Saved $1000 and after adjusting air pressures have a good ride. The question is are you going to time out or wear out your tires. Timing out I would definitely save the money and go with other than Michelins. This is just one humble opinion.

Is that the best up can come up with? In my backyard shed, I still have the tires that brought the family from OH to AZ in 1953. And... they are still holding air. 1997

Over the years I have purchased most of the brands named on this thread.
Operated a small fleet of rollbacks,..and they all faired well, some better than others,We liked Michelins on the steers and Hankook or Goodyear on the drivers, the Michelins steers did not river or cup as bad as others and therefore lasted longer.
I just purchased 6ea AH11 Hankooks, G range and had them spun balanced, 2oz of weights per tire!..Hankook has been around for 50+ years and just because they are a South Korea co. doesn't make them bad.
Do your research and buy what you feel comfortable with,..I did.

Not true. If you buy tires made in China, you get the added benefits of free lead and other products that make life as you and your family know it less than healthful.

While this is most likely true....who is enforcing this spec? Obviously not the US gov't. If they were the tires that come from over there wouldn't/couldn't have as many problems as they do.

I don't have anything to back it up, but I heard that Carlisle tires are better, now that they are made in China.
