You might want to also consider Sumitomo tires. I installed 6 Sumitomo 727 tires in the 275/70R22.5 size and they have been very good tires, and still look like new.

The warranty info stated in post #28 by bad Bolt is correct. But, there are a couple of different products on the market to internal balance. The plastic powder is a problem for RV tires because it will start to release after extended time sitting. The powder then collects at the bottom of the tire and some of it doesn't release when the wheels start to spin again. Caking against the bottom I guess. The GLASS beads are just a little smaller than a BB and are round so they never can adhere to the tire casing. They do fall to the bottom of the tire when it stops rolling and then re-distributes when the tire is started rolling again. centrifugal force pushes them to the casing when the speed is approaching 40 MPH.

Now I see that they should be changed. Does anyone have experience with:
Roadmaster RM170 LR G 14 ply
Hercules H702 or 902 LR G
Double Coin Truck & RV tires 16 ply
that they can share or should I stick to G670 or Michelin XRV for replacement tires?
Since we've quit paying out for a name, we put 4 of these on the drive axle, not long before doing a 3.5 mon, 7200 mile US tour and have had no issues. ..... Hercules H-902 225/70R19.5 128L (59217) : Amazon.com : Automotive

I installed Bridgestone 245X22.5 tires on mine last year; got a much better price than the Goodyear dealer offered me and they are made in the USA.

If it weren't for the price difference, I'd say stay away from Chinese, but they are all Chinese now.
Our OEM Michelins were made in Spain. I ran them 8+ years with no problems. Replaced them with Michelins but haven't looked to see where they were made.

Michelins do not have the UV inhibitors. They are both good quality tires

I am not going to put my life on the line with cheap tires made
in China or other low quality Asian companies.
Michelin tires do have UV inhibitors.

Question

Besides the brand, are there specifically steer (front tires) that work better than others?

I notice that if I catch the shoulder where it drops 2-3" the coach doesn't steer back on the road easy.

anyone have that happen?

Then why do they have a 0 day warranty for cracking?
