Just put the second set of Toyo's on my 2004 brave. Loved the first set and expect to love this set.

It appears Michelin and Goodyear have priced themselves out of the MH market. I just had 6 Sailun tires installed for $1,940 total bill. All of the lesser-known tire brands must comply with the same USDOT standards as the major brands. Michelin has their cracking problem, Goodyear has their rivering problem.

Tokyo's......absolutely. Love our Toyo's. Have had nothing but praises for them for years now. Just installed 4 new ones on our MH rears recently. Here's my thread on that install:

Rear tires I just bought...
I just bought and had installed here locally in Texas about 60 miles away from Houston, 4 new tires on my rear dually's, 4 - Toyo M122's, 255/70R 22.5 (H rated tires), new s/s solid extended valve stems for my TPMS, road force balanced, 2 Centramatic Balancing Rings and also had front tires/rims dismounted, road force balanced, 2 Centramatic balancing rings installed there too along with new gaskets/"O" rings on those s/s valve stems and lastly bought a total of 12 (3 for each rim) tapered self-centering lug nuts and all 4 tires had the same DOT date that were 12 weeks old. Went for a 40 mile drive (one way) had the coach weighed, came back and —by hand they re-torqued—to 450ft.lbs. all the lug nuts.
For a total of $1,850.00.

Took a while to find a shop that would do the road force balance and all the other stuff I wanted and get the pricing I did, but finally did. Get er done!

The folks @ Centramatics recommended this tire shop in Willis, TX to me.
Southern Tire Mart | Tires, Truck Repair, Wheels | Over 70 Locations
Speak with John Malroy @ the tire shop - I believe he is the manager and very knowledgeable & helpful.

For me (IMO) it's not just a matter of "riding smoother" or "feeling better" it's a matter of keeping the rig as healthy as possible. With this much weight, if you have tires and wheels that are not match balanced, not balanced or improperly balanced, followed up with not centering correctly when mounting to the hubs and lugs are installed, it can create vibration (whether you feel it or not) that translates throughout the entire suspension system which can wear other parts prematurely.

Since everything is "riding on our tires", and I'm going to spend a couple of grand for tires, why wouldn't I take the other necessary steps to insure, good tire wear and minimize other possible suspension issues by spending a few more bucks?

But then again I've never been accused of taking the cheap route on anything I've ever done.

I'm not a fan of beads or powders. My 2 cents.

One last thing...if you order tires online and they come with mismatched DOT dates, or something is wrong with one of those tires good luck. You're going to at the very least have to ship back—AT YOUR COST—the bad tire and a whole lot of other hassle. Find a good local shop that will do this work for you and back Their install and the tires.

When you replace these tires, take good care of them. Here's a couple of places to get you started and keep you busy for awhile.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

I've never used Toyo's but heard a lot of good reports on them. Keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Glad to have you here in the forum with us. You're gonna like it here.

I replaced 8 tires the end of March. I debated between Toyo and Yokohama tires. Both were impressive. I opted for the Yokos.

Happy Trails!!!

Toyo are good tires. So are Hankook. I had good experience with Sailun. Got new coach with Michelins. Haven't really heard of problems except with Goodyear and Michelin.

If you had them road-force balanced, why the Centramatic rings? Just wondering.

FYI - I had Toyos installed this past summer. Replaced six 9 YO Goodyears.

best tire dressing bar none

this product was invented in 1938 I am told......used every 3-4 months, it will keep the ozone and sunlight from deteriorating rubber.

also it is used on lawn furniture to extend their life 3X.

I believe it could make tires last twice as long....TIME [ozone and UV rays] gets RV tires, rarely are they WORN out.

it is NOT silicone based as is Armorall [worst thing to put on rubber]

Was told by the shop that sold me tires don't use vinyl covers. They increase the the temperature of the rubber. Instead use burlap, it cuts back on rays and allows air flow.

Because, I wanted an accurate base line for the tires to start with. Then as the tires wear over time, the Centramatic's will always keep them perfectly balanced. In just about everything I do, I always go the extra mile to insure everything is as perfect as humanly possibly. It just wasn't much money anyway to make much of a difference to me. However, in other things I do to the MH, ya, I probably do waste some money along the way by going over board sometimes. I'm just fussy when it comes to stuff like this. It's served me well over my lifetime and I don't plan on changing. It's in my DNA.
