At 14 yrs., they are way overdue for replacement. I just replaced my steer tires with Goodyear and will be doing the same on the rears this spring. Goodyear's are available most every where, not all imports are.

Had Toyo's installed on my Expedition last year. No issues after 9000 miles.

When I bought my Continentals four years ago they were made in the USA, don't know if they still are. With 10,000 miles on them side walls and thread still look new. They ride very well and quiet, will buy them again when the time comes

Just went with Hankook made in Korea. DOT 3 months old. I researched the tires and found lots of comments for 18 wheelers that they were good tires. I will see but $1500 difference between these and Goodyear/ Michelins, think I will give them a try. The poster who commented " cheap tires made in China or other low quality Asian companies" needs to read comments from people who have run the products before making a blanket judgment. Like Honda which I own and Hyundai both make one of the best car around, don't own a Hyundai but would in a without a second thought. IMHO of course.

I have Hankook tires on my F150 pickup truck. About a year now and they seem to be fine. Bought them primarily because they were $68 just each and I could not find any negative reviews for them. Realize the MH is a differing usage, and would make sure about the ride quality in MH with a primarily truck tire.

Good to hear about 14 year old Good Years.
I was planning on changing my 275/70/22.5 G670's out at 10 years.
Now I may go longer as they have 0105 to 1605 dates on them.

But you should replace yours soon. As to what brand to use.
Hint! If it isn't broke don't fix it.

I just put Doublecoins on my steers yesterday. Drove it home (in the snow) in prep for Jan. snowbirding and they feel fine. Dealer didn't have spin balance for that big a wheel so I had the glass bead inserts. Ran it as high as 70 MPH and no vibration. Time will tell. This guy does a lot of logging and excavation trucks and uses the glass beads in all of them and his customers love them. Can always remove the beads and get a spin balance if I think I need it.

Tires

I'm interested in the date coding..did a Search and seems that Rv tires manufactured before July 2,2000 had a three digit code. So...1400....under the new system would indicate some time in early April 2000. But..that should be when the there digit code should have still been in force.
Can someone plain this please.

I'm running these tires too. Two years now. No issues yet.

I have Samson's as well. They have been very reliable.

Sure - during the transition manufacturers would switch to the 4 digit date code when it was convenient to change the molds, so many tires started showing the 4 digits earlier than the mandated date.

This is information I received from one service centre that might be of interest to others.

Many of our competition use a bag full of plastic powder "beads" that they throw into the tire when mounting it. Once the tire starts spinning at highway speeds, the bag bursts, allowing the beads to accumulate to the light portion of the tire. This procedure simply does not work. We are constantly taking that stuff out of tires that were purchased elsewhere in order to fix large vibrations or ride disturbances. The reason these guys use that stuff is because they are dabbling in RV or larger tires. They simply do not want to invest in a 25 thousand dollar computerized tire balance diagnostic machine of this magnitude!
Most major tire manufacturers warranty states in the "what is not covered" portion of their respective warranty, "The addition of liquid, solid or gaseous materials other than air, nitrogen or carbon dioxide" into the tire will void the manufacturers warranty. So this powder balance also voids most major manufacturers warranty.

What is the model and size of your Hankook tires?

Also, for the others using Sampson, same question and where did you go to purchase? Truck stop? Retailer?

TIA
