Smile New Tires for Winnebago

We are in need of new tires for our 2008 Itasca Sunova and would like suggestions from those who have purchased tires recently. Never having done this before we would like to get opinions and suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Would probably help a little if we new what size of tire you are looking for

I am running the Toyos M154. 245x70x22.5

For 2 years now, nice ride and a decent price

First, welcome to the forum!!!

Second, there are many good manufacturers of tires. If you are a member of FMCA, there is the Michelin Advantage program. Michelin Advantage

Others have used Goodyear. Goodyear RV Tires – Performance, Durability and Comfort

There are other good brands.

Best of luck with your search.

Thank you for the help. I know nothing about tires as you can tell. This is the info I have. 245/70R 19.5 Load Rating F. The prices seem to vary so much and I want to get the correct ones but since we would like to replace them all I want to save as much as I can. Thanks much for the welcome!

Tires

Toyo's would be a good choice. M143's load rating "H" 16 ply. Price around 290.00 dollars each plus installation and balancing. We run these tires on our Coach same size as yours. Michelins have less load rating and less ply's and run around 403.00 bucks each plus installation and balancing. Just my 2 cents.

I bought Hankook AH11's the same size as yours over 2 years ago. I have been extremely happy with them so far. A great riding tire at a great price.

Very happy with my Hankook AH11'S as well. Paid slightly over $1800 for all 6 mounted and old ones disposed of in Mass. last September.

I initially ordered Good Year tires, but when I arrived to have them installed, I checked the date on them, and they were all over three years old. They checked with Good Year, and they were the newest available. So I went to a Hankook dealer, and got them for 2/3 the price. He also installed Dynabeads for balance, and they have made for a great ride.

I had a 2006 Sightseer that used the same size. I replaced the stock Goodyears with Sumitomos. The Sumitomos greatly improved the ride. I don't remember the specific tire model though.

Thank you all so very much! My husband is in the hospital and I know that new tires are on his mind so I thought I would research it for him. I printed your answers and am taking them to him. May you all have a wonderful summer!

I'm going to be in the market next year. I fear any of those Chinese manufacturers. I know that some American companies have factories overseas also but I still feel better with their products. I don't want to pay double the price but I worry about the quality and construction. We've all heard the horror stories of tire failure.

Make note the sumitomo 718's are considered urban tires with a speed rating of 65 mph, the 727's are considered over the road long haul tires with a speed rating of 75 mph. Not all sizes are available in the 727's and dealers try to sell the 718's but they are not suited for motorhome service.
