I am considering the same tire you installed.. Toyo 295/80R 22.5's as trat is what came on the coach.. Size I mean.. Are you happy with yours almost a year later?
Thanks in advance for your reply..

Hi Ron. I have put about 8000 miles on the Toyo's since I bought them a year ago. I couldn't be happier. The ride is quiet and smooth. If there is any wear, it is imperceptible. I think they are a great alternative to the over priced cracking brand. Yes, mine are 295/80R/22.5.

By the way, I was skeptical about the installer's recommendation to only balance the steer tires, but I went along with it. I'm glad I did. I have zero complaints.

Alan

Alan..
Thanks for the reply... I have about made up my mind to use these TOYO's... I have always balanced all before and may do the same this time.. BUT.. The Les Schwab I am looking to do business with doesn't have a balancer big enough to use metal weights and want to use beads.. It's about $30 a tire.. so an extra $120 to do the rears... I have a single axle.. Not a deal breaker so maybe worth the extra just in case..
Thanks again.. Have a great season..
Ron

Some bigger Les Schwab has the large wheel balancer. I know this is late response but I went to Schwab for 6 M154 date code of 07/16 and 05/16
2500 out the door. ..

Ron, I have shopped around the 2500 I paid for 6 tires was the highest quote.
From an independent truck tire dealer
I was quoted $2079.00 out the door for the same Toyos , I just didn't want to drive 59 miles.
