Cat..

I don't know anyone who has the Toyo tire you are talking about. When it comes to the only thing between me and the road IMHO I would have to go with "H" rated Goodyear or Michelin. Have you found a cost difference on the Toyo?

Maybe someone will chime in and try to change my mind........

I know there have most likely never been any discussions here about
tires. Try the search feature.

Good Luck

Dick

Toyo Tires

2005 Horizon. Put the Toyo tires on last September, have 15000 miles on them, including the Alaskan highway. We absolutely love them and they were $1,100 less than the other brands

I don't know about Toyo's highway tires, but we used Toyo on earth moving and mining equipment with good results.

Toyo's were original on our coach and we replaced them with the same. Waited until we were in Oregon so saved the sales tax. We had ~ 70,000 miles on them. Very happy. They are TRUCK tires, Toyo no longer has anything branded as RV tires, but we like them. We have the M-147 tires.

According to Toyo's website the M-127 is specifically NOT recommended for drive axle applications. It is designed primarily as a trailer tire but can also be used in a steering axle application. M127 | Toyo Tires

The M-147 that Barb is running on her coach is primarily a steering axle tire but is recommended for use in any position on your coach according to Toyo. M147 | Toyo Tires

That all being said, I remember running Toyo's in heavy truck fleet applications back in the '70s and we were happy with them. Our fleet manager was doing trials with Michelin and Toyo radials to see which we wanted to outfit the fleet with in the process of upgrading from biased ply tires to the new (then) radial tires. The Toyos won out over the Michelins due to their heavier sidewall construction. The Michelin tires made the trucks feel as though they were going to roll over when laying into a curve due to their weak sidewall construction at the time. That changed some years later when Michelin extended the steel belts further into the sidewall of their tires.

I have found over time, that you get what you pay for. I'd go for
the most expensive tires you can find, nothing better than
Goodyear G670 RV's that I've ever heard about.

I went to the Toyo tire site. It's a very informative and interesting site. They have quite an impressive resume, but I would still have to choose my "H" rated Goodyear RV tires. I feel the same way about my motorcycle tires. Cost is important but not the only factor. I wonder how they sell them for that much less than the competition? That comes to about $190.00 per tire.

OMG! did I just post to a tire thread

Travel safe

Dick

We had a set of TOYO's on our 36 DP. They were very hard riding.The tire is a FULL 14 ply, not a 10 ply rated as something else. And they are Not rated "H". Had them installed because we saved some money. You get what you pay for. Hard, Harsh, Rough ride. Saved a few bucks, but in the end replaced them with Goodyears 670 for a much better ride.

You would spend extra even knowing that a different brand was going to give you excellent service at a lower price?

Most of us are going to replace MH tires dues to age. Why spend extra if you don't need to? As I said, we had approximately 70K miles on the tires when we replaced them after 7 years. The price difference is significant. And we have slowed down a little, so I suspect that we will not put another 70K on these tires before we replace them after 7 years.

Have the Toyo's on my Holiday Rambler. Went to Alaska and back the spring summer through mud, snow, ice and paved road, they were better than the Michelin I took off.
Ride is good and I feel safe and about a grand in my pocket, almost half of the next set if I live that long LOL.
