Hankook doesn't seem to have a 295/80 tire.
Gary,

Is there a reason you would not consider the 11R 22.5? If so, you can get a better price and better availability.

I went from the 295/80 to the 11R 22.5. Specs were nearly the same except they are not low profile tires. IMO they ride better than my previous low profile Michelin's.

If you have to have tires here in FL, then you will have to use some of the advice already given to find the best price. If you can wait, however, you may want to check at a future destination. I needed tires for our towd last spring and put off buying them here in Central FL until right before our trip north. I checked at our destinations (Eastern TN and Central IN) and discovered that tires were 10-15% less expensive in TN and 15-20% less expensive in IN. 22.5" tires (ballpark) estimates seemed to hold the same percentages. Just my experience. Your mileage may vary.

I'll give Josam's a call. I could get the front end checked out at the same time.

bought six new sumitumo ST718 tires for my class a motorhome, at a price of 260.00 ea., could not see spenting 365.00 dollars each for michelins. which to the same thing in five years, weather crack from uv rays. if I have to replace these tires in four or five years, which is why I had to replace the michelins, I figured by paying 2600.00 versus
365.00, it would not hurt as much.

Unfortunately Sumitomo doesn't make my size. My 295/80R22.5 is a fairly rare size, so choices are limited and prices high.

I've used crawford tire in Ocoee twice and they had the best price by a long shot. The place is pretty crazy looking but the price quoted is always out the door balanced and The local RV shops say they do a great job. They don't do michelin though.

Question

Hey All -

I'm not in Florida, but have done a lot of research on new tires recently. Mine are 275/70R22.5 - not many options for this size. I had it narrowed down to Firestone FS560 Plus due to their great price and yet dependable name ($2500 out the door installed, balanced, etc.).

Found out that these are on a manufacturer's back order until late Feb or early March? I want to get it done now since the rig is already at the shop for winter servicing. My dealer recommended the Yokohama RY103 as a replacement.

Price is similar at only $2600, but has anyone used the Yoko's? If so, do you have experience on these that you can share?

Michelin, Goodyear, Continental, Bridgestone are all much more $$$$, and I don't necessarily see any added value for the cost.

Thanks for any advice - I've only been at this for 6 months, so I'm new to the family!

Rocket -

Yokohoma's are used extensively in the trucking industry, so no worries about the tire brand or reputation.

I have had Yokohama RY103s on my coach for 3 years now. Can't be beat. The tire circumference was identical to the OEM Toyo's. Not all manufacturers 295/80 dimensions are the same so I went to each manufacturers web site and got the actual diameter/circumference numbers before deciding.

Sam's club in Ocala can order Michelins and bring to there store. They don't mount RV tires but Parker tire on highway 441 north charges about $30.00 a tire. I got a michelin 235/80 22.5 for $342.00 with tax from sam's.

Thanks for the feedback on the Yokohamas! Sounds like I'm in good shape to get them installed this week.

By the way, good friend of mine told me that manufacturers will be raising tire prices by 12% starting February 1. Just an FYI.,
