I really like my Continental HSR 1 19.5 H rated tires. Had them 4.5 years side walls still look new. I cover them about 30% of the time and put 303 protectant on them three of four times a year.

Just returned from a 3200 mile trip thru south east and back to Texas and am very pleased with the Samson tires. No problems what so ever and ride was good.

As this thread grows, I'm becoming more convinced Michelin and Goodyear are waay overpriced, just buying the name. I've pretty-much settled on Sailun 275/70R 22.5 LR H @ $2,200 total bill for six on the MH. They have the best reviews on the internet of all China-made tires.

I'm a recent convert to a tag axle coach. My last coach got Samsons and we went 6000 miles in a year. I wouldn't have been as comfortable if I didn't also invest in a TPMS for the tires.


This new coach offers the benefit of having another couple of tires for in case something happens, so that's a Plus. TPMS, plus the tag, makes getting more Samsons or similar the way to go. Keep the saved $2000 in order to....whatever.

Check out Sumitomo. I just put 6 new Sumitomo ST 718 ( 245/75R 22.5 ) on a 2005 Monaco 34 foot gasser we just bought. The Michelins that were on it were only 5 years old but cracked. Sumitomo is highly regarded Japanese company with good reviews.
FYI, I put 4 new 14 ply Saluns on my recent 2013 Bighorn 5er after 2 blowouts on Nevada Hwy 50 on OME TowMax tires which only had 8000 miles. Bad experience and costly. I had good results with Double Coin on the 2002 Monaco 40 ft. DP we had a few years back

Like the last post, after lots of research and all the 'my tire is better than your tire' posts I went with Sumitomo ST 718 245x70x19.5 for my 34 ft., 2004 Damon Challenger. Just finished a 6,000 mile cross country trip and back and the tires were great. Very quiet, smooth (if the road was smooth)and handled great. Time will tell how the tread wears. Six tires, mounted and balanced, out the door for $2,200. Just FYI and good luck on whatever tire you go with.

Not really because if one fails the others are instantly overloaded. Especially if you used the load/pressure charts to set the tire pressure. That leaves little to no reserve for overloading.

Talk to some guys who really know tires, not just rehash rumors, and you'll see Michelin is the best quality tire.

Save a penny, spend a dollar.

Or a life.

Good Luck!

Nope, Michelin is not on my shopping list. I conferred with a major tire shop owner and verified the cracking sidewall problem was valid, and why. IMO they are way over-priced. There are several irv2.com members who have have Michelin tire failures, and many who have reported sidewall cracking severe enough to require replacement, which Michelin does not cover, for life of the tread.

Oh man, here we go again. Yes, Michelin does cover it. Many have been reimbursed. They just paid 70% of my rear 4 tires and 75% of the steers. Over $2,500. And they were almost five years old. That's amazing customer service no other tire manufacturer can touch.

Love my Michelin's, keeping 'Em a long time! :-). 40 years of great Michelin service without a flat or a blowout !

Cheers!
