Need new tires

I checked the tire manufacture date today after getting my MH back from a repair shop for other maintenance needs. I've assumed the tires on my Class A wouldn't be older than 2010, since it was a 2010 model. I was surprised to see dates of 2007 on the back duals and 2009 on the front. I went to Tires etc today and they recommended Cooper 245 70R 19.5's (Cooper RM 170) at $199 apiece, $!370 for 6 tires installed. Have any of you had any experience with Cooper tires? Appreciate your input.

No experience with Cooper. Just put a set of Gladiator tires on my rig for the same price as yours.

Are the Cooper tires steel cord/belts? If not I sure wouldn't use them on an RV.
Made in China?
Website doesn't give any of that info either.

Cooper tires are fine. I know two people who purchased them for their rv. 3 years strong no problems.

I personally purchased Firestone FS560's last July. Just under 1900 out the door installed. I am happy with my purchase so far.

I have the Cooper RM170's on my duals. Put them on last August. Have had no problems. I did put Goodyears on the front, though.

Cooper tires are quality tires. I've owned several sets for our SUV's and trucks but I have not used them on the motorhome.

Have you thought about Michelin's? Yes they can be pricey but are a nice tire and used a lot on RV's. You can get a discount on the if you are an FMCA member. Well worth the cost of a membership if you don't already have one. Just check with the local Michelin shop if they participate in this Michelin/FMCA program.

picking up our rig tomorrow. Took it in for some minor adjustments before our spring trip- checked and we need tires. Same issue- outdated. We chose Coopers, sorry I don't know the size or price for the 8. I do know my husband and the repair guy researched.

Actually it's called the "Advantage" program and it's not just FMCA that uses it.
