RV tires.

What are the best tires for a safe and smooth ride? I was given a quote of $3500.00 for 6 tires with complete installation.

Depends on size? Hankook has gotten good reviews in the larger class A sizes.

The "best" is subject to personal preference. There are many good quality brands on the market, all are expensive. Members here might be able to be of a bit more help if you provide the size you are shopping for, and the brand that is currently on your coach.

I bought 6 tires for mine in May 2013. Got a very good price through the FMCA Michelin Advantage program. Saved several hundred dollars over the best price our local dealers could offer. In fact my final price, under $3000, for the set was lower than I could find on Toyo, Bridgestone, Hankook or Goodyear.

What are you putting them on? IMHO, Michelin is the only way to go but you will get varying opinions on this forum.
As a suggestion, filling in your signature with some information about your equipment really will help with the response you get back.

Michelins are my personal favorite. The buying program through FMCA can save you a lot of money.

As previously stated, it's a personal preference. Michelen's are known for developing side-wall cracks. Goodyears for "rivering". To my knowledge those are the only two brands specifically made for RV use.
re the FMCA tire deal, their website has an admonition to check pricing closely, as some dealers can/will beat the FMCA pricing.

I just bought 4 245/75R/22.5 Yoko tires for my 2005 Suncruiser. Out the door price was 1707.27. That included Mounting Balancing Truck Valve Stems Flow through Valve Caps and state sales tax. I thought that was a very fair price.

If you're even thinking about Michelin's, you should really look at the FMCA Michelin Advantage Program. I'm having 6 245 70R/19.5's put on for under 3K

Price on Yokohama's looks very attractive. Wonder if the ride is as smooth as Micheline's?

You should also consider Toyo.
