Tires- Power King vs. Michelin??

Anyone have any feedback/ review/ experience with Power King 275/70 22.5? I have a Newmar Dutchstar and looking to replace two tires- currently Michelin, but Michelins are double the price.

Don't use the RV more than short trips and usually just once every other week for 6 months of the year. Yet also do not want tires blowing out at 10k miles!

Would love some opinions!

Thanks- Jason

If your worried about price then buy the cheap ones, there's no such thing as a "Good Deal" you get what you pay for....

Michelin you pay more and get cracks in the sidewalls so you get more cracks for your money.

You pay for what you get, but you don't always get what you pay for.

In my experience, the tires will either be fine or they will fail. I am not familiar with that brand but I have run "Cheap, Chinese" tires on two different motorhomes with no issues. Make sure they are the correct load-range and they are properly inflated for your weight. That is 75% of the battle. The only tire I ever experienced a failure with was a Goodyear.

All that said, I have Michelins on my current coach...

I replaced 8 year old Goodyears that "looked" to be in good shape with new Michelin tires. The ride was 100% better. Not that that answers your questions the tires you're considering, but you have a nice coach. Doesn't it deserve something more than a decision based solely on price? Nobody here knows your finances better than you, but I wouldn't put k-mart jeans on a Neimann Marcus rear, yanno

Really can't compare 8 year old tires with new ones.

Cheaper is better, as long as they have a US DOT stamp on them and we've quit paying for big names. I have four Hercules on the drive axle and so far they've been as good as anything else. Got them from Amazon and dirt cheap by comparison to anything else at the time.

I dunno, Carl. I'd rather see Neimann Marcus rears in K-Mart jeans that vise-versa!

In all seriousness, my coach has 4 Samsons (Chinese) on the drive axle and 2 Cooper Roadmasters (Chinese) on the front. We've had no problems in the 3 1/2 years they've been on there. Keep them properly inflated and have fun!

I guess I use the same analogy on my Coach that my Friends and Family ride in as I do my work Vehicle that my Customers Equipment ride on....I am glad for all of you that run cheap Tires and haven't had an issue, Piece of mind is priceless!
