Many tire threads and as many opinions can be found via the search feature.

I just bought my 2nd set of Michelin XRV's. Best price and service I found was via the FMCA Michelin program.

Many threads/opinions on this subject. I have 9 yr old Goodyears that I will be replacing next month. The Jan. 2013 issue of Motorhome magazine ranks these 3 tire mfgs in this manner:
Gold - Michelin
Silver - Goodyear
Bronze - Continental

To me, I only put on about 4-5K miles per year. Hard to justify the Michelin pricing since they will time out before wearing out, although I think it is the best tire available.
I also will look at Toyo and Hankook as I talked with several folks that run on these and are happy.
Just depends on each individuals preference and thickness of wallet.

I beat the tire shopping to death and finally joined FMCA and took advantage of the Michelin Advantage program...the tires were 378.00 and some change each..I'm satisfied with that price and have peace of mind going down the road at 70 mph. Don't mess around with any other tire, just go get it done..Believe me.

That's a great price Gonational... I paid almost $3500 for 6 installed. Next time I'll know better. Learning a lot in here!

Let me add that I did check out Toyo, Goodyear G670, and Hankook - compared to the Michelin XRV / FMCA. Goodyear G670 were OE on the coach and appear to have given good service (I have had the coach only a few months) - they were more money. Toyo were a bit more money. Hankook was couple three hundred cheaper, but not enough to sway me. Pricing, good reputation, quality dealer, plus the positive experience from a previous set of Michelin XRV made the decisian easy in the end.

Pricing in your area may vary of course.

I just had Toyo put on the rear, The Michelin on the front is what I need to replace
so maybe I will put Toyo on the front too. I thought maybe some other tire on the front would ride better

Costco matched the FMCA price for Michelin 235/70-22.5 $378. a year and a half ago had them installed across the street for a great price as well. My ten year old Michelins looked really good when we took them off. Michelins got me here and I stay with them and have never had a problem.

It is worth looking at Costco.

Toyo Tires

I recently heard when shopping for a Class A and discussing Tires that Toyos have had some bad issues. Just second hand but from someone that sells RV's it may be something to look into before you put Toyo's on.

I have GY 670s, they are doing fine. However, since most RV tires wear out from old age before we wear their tread out, buy a brand name tire that gives you the best price.
