I put them on my saturn and they were ok for 12k miles, but they seem to become noisy after that. They also wear faster then my previous tires

Sumitomo Tires

I ran a trucking company for 28 years and in the later years we ran nothing but Sumitomo Tires on all of our trailers. The Michelins would blow out the side walls before they would wear out. We did not run caps because of the weight and distance we ran.I have a 40 ft Windsor and it has Sumitomos.

Check with Indendence rv in Wintergarden
They put Sumitomo on my 40' Kountry Star a little over 4 years ago. Absolutely no problems and look like new.

Toyo also a good choice. Above 65 mph on a motorhome is a very bad idea.

Wow, a six year old thread about tires gets revived.
