Here are several highly rated, high quality, reasonably priced brands:

TOYO M170

All of these are used in the trucking industry with excellent results.

I have been a buyer of Michelin and their premium price for several years and sets. I think other tire manufacturers have closed the quality delta, making Michelin no longer worth the premium. Early this year I considered Toyo, Yokahama, Hankook, Bridgestone, and Firestone. All of which would have been good choices. I bought six Firestone ST590 tires. Now six months and 8000+ miles later, very pleased with them.

I like the firestones just do not have them in our size. Your list is about the same as mine for options. Thanks

I put 6 Toyo M144 tires in that same size on our MADP last September and are very happy with them. I chose to not replace the Michelins for the reasons listed above.

I've seen the Toyo M144's was thinking of those. Someone mentioned the M170's but I can not find a source for those. would like to compare the two.

I went with the M144's because my dealer couldn't get the M170s. the M154 is also an option if they have the tire in your size.

Just pulled the trigger at Simply Tire on the Yokohama 104ZR's. They were less than $200 more than the Toyo's. I'm sure either would have been fine.

What I found while searching for tires was first even though tires may be made by a company does not mean all tire installers can get them. They are at the bay of their suppliers who do not have them. Everyone up here can get Good Year and Michelins then the Chinese tires. They do not carry anything else. And then add in the required size and that further limits the options. Online was the only option.

My excavator friend is buying my barely used Good Years for one of his low boys and installing the new tires in the deal. All in I am just over $2,200.

Thanks for all the reply's and input.

Nasdaq,
The best part is now you won't have that uneasy feeling wondering about your tires when you're traveling, and can relax and hopefully enjoy the drive - minus the occasional idiot driver who thinks that extra space you're leaving between you and the car in front of you is there just for him to merge right in ... lol.

Happy Travels

I was close to getting those but a lot of people up here run the Yokohama's on their cars and light trucks so a lot of good feed back. Looking forward to them coming in and getting them mounted.

I see you have already purchased Yokohama tires and I'm sure they will be great. I've had Toyo's, Michelin, and BF Goodrich and they were great also. I agree with you, I would not put Goodyears on if they gave them to me. We had multiple issues with the original Goodyear G670.

The FMCA program has added Continental tires to their discount program. They are a quality tire with a great reputation and save $300 per tire over Michelin. You can use the links below to access the program and check pricing, but to purchase tires you need to join FMCA. (when pricing tires, select "Truck" and the size)
