Current tire is a G159.



Any recommendations?!

I'm not against a chinese tire if others have had good results. But, I'm not too eager to pay a huge price over a "name brand" just because of the name itself. I know certain manufacturers have a good reputation, but not always for EVERY tire they make.



So, I'm here... looking for REAL WORLD experiences of what you've bought and what's working out for you. I don't care to hear opinion or what you've heard... as then, it's all hear-say. I like those who have experienced tire replacements, and what's been working well for them... or not.



Help a fellow out!! I'll be listening.

FMCA has a new buying program with Continental Tire. They have a tire in your size for $304. That is tire + FET. You have to add sales tax/mounting & balancing.

Indeed. And there are more threads on tires on this forum than almost any subject. And they all say the same thing.

Okie Dokie...

The Dayton D520S is 16ply and about $274/tire installed.
... for only a few bucks more a tire, sounds like the Dayton is winning.

That's great to know... yet, your post offers nothing of value other then "upping" your post count.

... no wonder I don't use 'forums' too much, there's always one or two

... I was alerted to the Hercules return/exchange policy when dealing with Chinese based tires that have gone bad and are still under warranty.

Can someone chime in that have had a tire go bad, and HOW the process took place?! I was told today, that the (Chinese) tire has to be inspected... and to do so, they ask for it to be returned. You pay return shipping, and IF they decide it was a tire manufacturing defect... they replace the tire. Albeit, days or weeks later. If not, you eat the cost of a new tire... or, the one you had to buy to get you back on your way.

I was also told, the Dayton is a Bridgestone/Firestone brand... and, you can get it exchanged or at minimum inspected by a local office. No need to go the extra mile and ship a tire back to an inspector or inspection office.

... any truths to this (from those who have experienced such dilemma)?

JohnyJ;

The ones I ordered are the Roadmaster 245/70R19.5 170 AP G $265 each, out the door.

We deal with this trucking outfit a lot in our business. They told me they sell a lot of these to CW, and a couple other local RV places.

I have Saliun's on my old Mirada, no problems.

I just put 4 Maxxis tires on my TT, great tires not made in China. The tire guy said if I was going to buy Marathon I might as well get Hercules as they are built by the Goodyear plant in China, same tire that costs less. I have no idea if that is true. We were talking trailer ST tires.

Dayton Tires/245/70/19.5

Hi JohnnyJ.

Last summer I found myself in Ontario, Ca. with badly "cupped" Goodyear G670 tires. With all the shaking going on there was no way that I was going to continue driving. I was quoted all kinds of prices from $2,000 and up. Was about ready to leave when they came up with a set of 6 Dayton D580S that came in yesterday. (ya right). The code on the tire made them 2 months old. Well to make a long story short I was out the door for $1300. Drove another 1500 miles. Good ride. Couldn't be happier. Looked all over for tire chart that would tell me correct pressure for my loaded weight. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Last year we replaced our Michigans' with Firestone FS560's. I searched on the forum and many truck sites and was ready to buy some others but when i added up the cost of the tire, mounting and balancing these came in a few bucks cheaper. I think i paid right around $275.00 a tire mounted and balanced.
