Tire Selection

I know that this will get some people going so here goes! I am in need of new tires on my MH. It is a 2007 Fleetwood revolution and the tire size is 295/80r22.5. I don't care about winter traction at all as it never sees winter. I also don't care about getting high mileage out of the tires as I probably will end up having to change out the tires for age before they wear out. What I want is smooth and quiet tires that I know will not let me down. What is the best tire and model tire for this? I typically have used Michelin's in the past and have been very pleased but I know there are many more choices out there. I am not looking to be cheap, I want good tires. thanks

Hey Coldheader,

I just put Toyo's on our coach. M154's. Had Michelins on before. ZXE's. Bridgestone, Firestone, Goodrich, Yokohama. I'll start the popcorn!

Regards, Howard

Hamshog gave a good list. I'll add Continantal (the HSR2 model) to that list, and I think Hankook also makes the 295/80 size. All excellent tires.

I replaced my rear 295/80's with the Continental 11R22.5 size. They are an essentially identical size (sames revs/mile) but lower load capacity. Since it is a popular size for trucks & semi-trailers, the pricing is much more competitive and availability broader. I don't need the huge weight carrying capacity of the 295/80 on my 20,000 lb rear axle (only 5000/tire). I'm sticking with the 295/80's on the front, where the load is heaver.

I have Bridgestone tires on my MH with those exact size tires. I'm impressed with them. They ride nicely and seem to wear well. I also like Michelin tires for larger MH for their ride features. Less impressed with Goodyear, finding the ride quite harsher on good roads. But....pass the popcorn.....everyone has their own opinions and reasons for this topic

Due to the sizes on our rig (365/70 front and tag and 315/80 drive) we're pretty much "stuck" with Michelin although I'd probably buy them anyway due to the great "luck" I've had with Michelins.
