Just got 6 275/70/r22.5 Sumitomo's ST 727 load H tires balanced and mounted, also wheels polished for $2258.68. So far so good, replaced Goodyear G670's. Just couldn't justify the cost of those Goodyears...

Owned a tire store for several years. You would be surprised how many brands of tires are out there like the Sumitoma that are not well known but are excellent quality tires. Had more problems with name brands than anything else.

Sumitomo/Toyo

Where do I find these Sumitomo or Toyo tires? Tried a couple truck tire places in Mesa and they want to sell me Firestone FS560's

Toyo commercial/truck tires listed dealers in Mesa are:

Advanced Tires
1947 N Highley RD
480-985-5400

Roberts Tire Sales
4747 S Power RD
480-967-8805

For Sumitomo commercial tires, you may have to contact their corporate offices for dealer locations but I know that many Big O locations, especially in smaller towns, have the facilities for selling and replacing commercial truck tires including motorhomes. I have used them several times for replacing tires in an emergency on motorhomes and I know CoachNet uses them for some ERS calls or for ordering replacement tires for RVs.

Big O is an authorized dealer for Sumitomo tires in general so you probably can order any model of Sumitomo from them, I'd imagine.

4243 East Main St.
Mesa, AZ 85205
(480) 854-3577

6702 E MCKellips RD
MESA, AZ 85215
480-924-4000

6915 East Baseline Road
Mesa, AZ 85209
(480) 830-1118

1738 S. Crismon Rd.
Mesa, AZ 85209
(480) 545-5369

Several BigO locations in Gilbert also.

I just got a quote yesterday for six M's - "discounted" to about $4,700! Crazy, right? So, any specific brand suggestions for us?

JMO, but hop over the border to Oregon and visit a Les Schwab for Toyos. No sales tax and you're getting a great tire for a much lower price than Michellins or Goodyear. There's one Les Schwab in particular that gives excellent prices and service to motorhome owners ...I'm thinking the one in Junction City? Maybe somebody else can chime in on that.

If you'd like to see the Tires Les Schwab carry from their truck tire catalog on their website --click here for the multi-page catalog.

I'm having 4 265/75R/22.5's Toyo's installed tomorrow at my Les Schwab for just under $1,900 including tax.
I have looked at Hankooks,Michelins,Toyos and Ohtsus and decided on the Toyos as I have had very good luck with them on all my 4x4 rigs for years and am also happy with the service from Les Schwab. If they're anything like the Open Roads I put on my PSD Excursion when I changed from the Bridgestones that were on it when I bought it,I'll be really happy. There was a difference from nite to day in the handling.

Just replaced my michelin xrv 255/80 22.5 tires with Sumitomo 727s 275/70 22.5. $3085 for 7 (6 installed and one for an unmounted spare) at Collier tire in Naples Fl. Short ride home and at speed (70) on Rt 75 and they were great. Saved $400 over only 6 Michelins with FMCA special price and the local Ft. Myer Michelin dealer's rip off install price of $95 per tire.

Have them on my Winnebago Journey and after a trip out west and who knows how many trips to Florida I have no complaints. Oh ya did I mention they were a lot less $$$ then the M brand it came with.

We've run Michelins on so many of our vehicles. Our motorhome has them on it and it drives like a dream! Maybe the Tag helps with that. Unless we have early on problems with our Michelins we will not buy anything but Michelins for the motorhome again. We spent $240,000.00 for our motorhome 10 months ago so to skimp on tire quality would be foolish in my book. I would be so upset with myself if we bought some other brand to save $400.00 $600.00 or even $800.00 only to have the quality of ride we now have to be down graded. It's nice to save money bought not worth dealing with poor ride quality for seven years.
