Think I'm goin' with the Toyos...
After way more time and effort than anyone should ever have to put into spending this much money, I think I've decided to go with the Toyo M143. I wanted the M154s due to the ebalancing feature, but it appears they don't even make that one in a 225 70R 19.5.
The Goodyear G70RV was tempting with the rebate, but there are none to be found in my area, and no idea when they will be available. Even with the rebate, they still can't touch the price of the Toyos. But, it's a moot point anyway if you can't get them.
The other tire I was considering would have been the Michilein which is what I am replacing, but I've decided to go with the Toyos, and take the $300 difference in price (4 tires) and invest in the TST tire monitoring system. The piece of mind of having the monitoring system will help me deal with not having a more popular brand name on the side of my tires.
There is just no way that there is $300 (4 tires total) difference in the quality of these tires. So instead of contributing $300 to Michilein's advertising budget, I think a tire monitoring system will be a much better investment.
Comments welcome if anyone cares to continue to beat this dead horse...I actully enjoy reading stuff like "I would never own anything but brand X" and then "I wouldn't own brand X if you held a gun to my head" in the very next post.
