Hi DartmanK...you can buy your Michelins at Sam's Club. They will order them for you, but you have to take them and the motorhome somewhere to have them installed. An easier deal is to just go to Les Schwab and buy them and have them installed there.

Six Michelins were $5600??!! That's about $900 per tire.

Who was the dealer on that quote?

I have had a blow out (on rear) I want the best tire there is. Tires are your cheapest life insurance. Ask any trucker about tires. They want the best, Michelins on the front. Michelins are the only tire that is made in USA. Thats what I had put on my motor home (6 tires).

Put two new Michelins on the front of mine and saw that they were made in Spain!

TOYO tires

I have the original TOYO tires on my 2004 Country Coach they are great tires. I am getting ready to replace them because of the age. I store the MH inside and the tires show no indication of there age. The tires still appear to be in new condition there is no cracking or checking I inspect them regularily.

Update........I finally got my tires! Probably a good thing since we hit the road full time in 30 days. I went with the Michilen's through FMCA and got a great deal as far as I am concerned: Four new (DOT date from August 2012) Michelin's for $378.52 each. After all the taxes, labor, and disposal the grand total came to $1950.40 for all four tires!
I would like to thank all of you for your advice and passing on your experience and knowledge; you were tremendous help! I will be sure to pass your valuable information on to others who ask. Thanks again.

I picked up 6 of the Firestone 560's for $2500 today and replaced the original XRV's on my 2002 Phaeton. Drove the 100 miles home and they ride really well...so far, I'm impressed.

I bought six 22.5 Bridgestone tires in October; they are also made in the USA.

I have to laugh when people say the new tires rode better than the old ones. A new tire should have softer rubber in than the ones you replaced so they should ride better. You won't notice as they gradually get harder but you will when you get new tires.
