Replacement RV Tires

I currently have Goodyear G670 245/70R19.5 tires on RV with DOT code 1400. I had the RV inspected last January before purchasing by an RV Dealer service centre and was told they checked the tire DOT code and the tires were good for another 2 years.

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?

Have them inspected by a trusted tire dealer. I was ready to replace mine and my guy did some rotating and said they were fine. Showed no signs of being dangerous. Just told me to check the pressure regularly and walk around during stops to inspect for heat buildup. Also took of my valve stem extensions and said these are not good.
Bottom line is do what you feel comfortable with but I'm going to get a few more miles out of mine.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I don't have input on the specific tire you ask about, but I'm sure some of our experts will chime in soon.

We're glad you found us.

DOT code 1400 tells me week 14 of 2000. They will be 14 years old soon!

If you have had good service out of GY tires for that long, I would do it again.

I would change the tires. 14 years is going to be all you think about when you drive. My tires were 7 years old. I bought Chinese tires and had a hell if a time balancing them. Had vibrations. Several rotations, and 2 tires shaved I finally got it running decent. Not as smooth as factory tires, but not bad enough to notice. I got double coins. If it weren't for the price difference, I'd say stay away from Chinese, but they are all Chinese now.

Double Coin

I ran this brand on our 1988 Winnebago Superchief. I didn't want to spend an arm and leg due to only using the RV within our state (no long hauls). They performed well and got us by just fine. I believe I spent $1000 installed for 4 rear tires. I would not have ventured out on a long haul with them however due to them not being a name brand tire. Just my 2 cents worth.

Goodyears and Michelins are not made in China. Goodyears have a
UV inhibitor in the rubber and are not as affected by sunlight deterioration.
Michelins do not have the UV inhibitors. They are both good quality tires
made by reputable companies with warranties. I'm staying with my Goodyears,
I am not going to put my life on the line with cheap tires made
in China or other low quality Asian companies.

Not all the tires made by name brand companies are made in the USA. Even though you didn't say that. There are other places they are made, all over the world. Korea, Taiwan, China, Japan, although I would not think twice of running anything made in Japan. Although I would love to run made in the USA everything, my pocketbook does not aloe me to be so picky. I use "Chinese" as a generic term, as in not US made. You can call each manufacturer and ask where a specific model tire is made. You will be surprised.

I put Sampson tires on my RV and have not had a problem yet. I don't have a ton of miles yet but the last 3.5 hour trip they did fine. I did 55-65 mph for over 2.5 hours and no issues. I would love a USA brand but they were not within my budget.
