I don't work for, nor do I own any stock in a tire company. Yes, I am chuckling and hope you are, too.
I agree with your do-the-research part and that's why I suggested the OP google 'zipper rip'. I am sure Michelin is a good tire, but I have some doubts about the GYs. I also believe Bridgestones are every bit as good as Michelins, maybe better, but at a lower price. And I still have that sour taste in my mouth from a Michelin blowout. I know I am trying to give the best advice based on my personal experience, and suspect you are, too.
Hi Flynn. No, my opinion doesn't trump anybody else's. What I was trying to say is that it's important to sort facts such as Danes on Tour picture of rivering and the many reports of zipper rips from anecdotal comments of xyz brand sucks or ABC brand rotted. I wasn't intending to impugn any individual but to caution the OP to try to do research and not rely on anecdotes.
There are those that monitor their tires and pressures and take care to weigh their MH and those that 'set it and forget it'. Tires can be under inflated or over loaded without looking any different. If someone doesn't take care of their tires and has a problem do they ever say, "I ran my tire flat and it came apart.", or do you hear EFG brand blew up and damaged my motorhome? It's always the tire companies fault, even when it's not. I yield back the soap box. :-)
