I can't change from Michelins for at least the front and tag as they are 365/70's and no one else makes on comparable. The drive axle has 315/80's so I might be able to use something else, but won't as I've never had a blow out on a Michelin, just a GoodYear some years ago on my Jeep.

We have been very pleased with them.
I use Hankook on car, small truck, large truck for years and years. Never had a problem. Couple more years for coach, Hankook it will be.

I have 6 hancook tires on my diesel pusher and have had no problems. Michelins I had on the coach cracked on the sidewalls in 2 years

Vote for Sumitomo here.

I went with them on my rig 3.5 years ago and very happy with them. Looking to put Sumitomos on the toad soon.

I am in the TOYO camp ---

While they are at the end of their life age wise -- they still ride and feel great -- hardly any wear.
I can only go by my personal experience

I have two fronts coming from local supplier here in South Florida (got from TOYO site)
Has quoted $877 mounted and balanced. Size is 295/75R22.5
Manufacturer date is about 7 months ago.

You will of course get as many opinions as replies.


thx Dale

Hankook or Toyo. Who made Goodyear a tier one tire? Really??? I don't think so.

If you go with that cheap of a tire, you'll regret it. Hankooks are one of the best values out there, IF they have your tire size. Buy the two front this year and rears next year, breaking up your costs.

A few years ago with another rig, a tech discovered I needed new tires right before we were leaving on a long trip. I let him sell me two Goodyear, steer tires. I was replacing Michelins. The tires didnt "steer" they drifted, bad ride, bad handling. The next summer, I bought 4 new Michelins, two steer, and two drive, and put the old Goodyears an inside tires on the duallys.

My experience with RV tires has been you get what you pay for..

Tires

A year and a half ago I got rid of my 14 year old Michelins. They had been a superb tire and had a lot of tread wear left on them, But I felt that I had pushed them far enough as far as time was concerned and was beginning to see some very small cracking with a magnifying glass around the small print on the front tires. The cost of new Michelin replacements was prohibitive. In shopping around I found a so called 3rd tier Chinese tire from Aeolus and at a darned reasonable price. These tires seem to be popular in Canada and some places in Europe and in some of the Northern U.S. States. I Hate buying a foreign made product and especially a Chinese made product. But as Michelin and others have priced themselves out of the market alternatives have to be explored.
The Aeolus tires ride great and are smooth and so far are performing well. The Naysayers will probably pile on here and claim I am jeopardizing mine and others safety with these tires but so far They have given me no reason to question their quality and to doubt their ability to perform. Time will tell.

When I bought my coach the dealer suggested Roadmaster tires they are designed by Cooper. I have put 10,000 miles on them and satisfied so far

Tires for Diesel Pusher

Miles don't count. How were they throughout their life cycle? And what was the amortized cost over the lifetime?
I pay more for my Michelins. But over 7 years, no problems, and at $6000 for eight, I am pleased at $42 per month, about $5 per tire. Fulltiming
