New Tires on Monaco Diplomat


I've replaced my front tires yesterday on my 2006 Monaco Diplomat.

Original tires were Goodyeaur G670, 275-80-22.5, H rating.

I've replaced them with Michelin XZA3 , 275-80-22.5, H rating

I drove approx 100 miles this morning on them, and I almost can't believe what a difference they make. The ride is so much smoother, I thought I was driving a different motorhome. I am very pleased.

I think I might replace the rear end with Michelin also.

Just replaced my 11 year old good years with Mich. Too and was also amazed the difference in ride and driveability. Mine takes the 295/80/22.5 and cost a hefty $585 each. Got all 6 just because the others were old but obviously worn out too. Its like driving a whole new rig. So smooth now.. Wish I would have done it sooner. Now if my tire covers would show up that I ordered online so I can protect my investment in rubber.

I replaced my tires with the XRV Michelins, not the 22.5, mine are 19.5, but I got such a major difference in ride and handling I was blown away.

I was told by another user that 'all new tires will ride and handle like new tires, not just Michelins' Well, I disagree. I think Michelins ride better, quieter, and smoother than other tires. Not just on my coach, but the car as well, it was like a whole different vehicle.

But of course, that's my opinion, no white sheet to back it up.
