First what kind of tires do you want? Cheap Chinese junk or good tires?

LMAO...

There's lots of good tires. Goodyear and michelin are the expensive ones.

Bridgstone, toyo, hankook, and cooper also make decent tires.

I had toyo's on my last (19.5") rig, they were far superior riding compared to the goodyears I took off.
I put sumitomo's (cheap japenese junk?) on the back of the knight this past spring, they work just fine, handle and ride good, have yet to lose a pound of air...

I put Toyo's on the MH I bought last year. They were from Beasley on 59 North. I think their price was fair and the service was good. Ours were 295/75R/22.5 but they have and can get all kinds of truck tires etc.
Good luck and safe travels!

Try Costco. Also, if you belong to FMCA, they have a really good deal on Michellins.
Good Luck,

I found these at Sears Online: Bridgestone R250F, 245/70R 19.5 G for $252 each.

They drop ship to your local Sears tire dept for pickup (my local couldn't install them). I bought 6 R250Fs, they were all dated 20th week of 2012.

I'm very happy with them.

Some Costco's will mount the 19.5s. You need to check w/the Costco that you deal with.
Good Luck,

Give

La Porte Tire Center Inc

a call. I purchased two just before my last trip and I'm happy with their service and their pricing. I believe I used the FMCA Michelin Advantage program. Walked in, signed the papers, drove away all paid through the program. (They have your CC on file at Michelin/FMCA one or the other)

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Updated quote list:

Costco - Michelin XZA2 $3411.98 out the door, no mounting.

Mann's Tire in Tomball - Michelin XZA2 $4221.75 out the door, mounted & Balanced.

Wow, big difference for the mounting & balance.

If you're willing to drive a little bit you might try Riverside Tire in Sealy (50 miles west of Houston on I-10). I replaced all 6 of my tires last year with Toyo 245/70 R22.5 for $300 each mounted; $1800 + tax out the door. Very happy with them so far.
