Mixing tire brands....

....and sizes.
Due to apparent alignment issues we have to replace the front Michelins on our 2012 Winnebago Sightseer.
"My guy" can get me Toyos or Yokohamas for a lot less than Michelins even w/ the FMCA discount.
The sizing is slightly different, but only by 1/10 taller in diameter. Does anybody see a problem with doing that?

So long as the tires on each axle are matched it's ok to have somewhat different tires from steer axle to drive axle. You should make sure that the weight carrying capacity is equal or larger than the ones you are replacing.
