I replaced my Michelins with six Sumitomos. Went from 255 x 80 x 22.5 range g to 275. X 70 x 22.5 range h for $2100.00. Ride better, handle better and quieter. Also run with less air, so often ride.

IMHO a better tire for a lot less money.

Toyo tires happy

I have the orginal Toyo tires on my 2004 Country Coach, I am very happy with the tires. I only have about 37,000 miles on them never had a problem. I am considering replacing them because of there age, however there are still absolutely no cracking or other signs of age on the tires. I do store the RV inside when not in use.
I will definitely consider replacing with Toyos.

I replaced the Michelin 255/80R 22.5 tires with Toyo 265/75R 22.5 tires. The cost difference for 6 tires installed new vale stems bead balanced out the door were $1000.00 cheaper than the best Michelin price (FMCA) I could find. The ride quality is much improved. We have put ~5000 miles on the Toyos and can't find anything wrong with them.

It is good to hear all the pro's and a couple of con's.
I will ask my dealer about some type of balancing guarantee and will probably go TOYO.
Thanks for the input.

I have Toyo's on my 97 imperial. They were new in 2009. I have put 10,000 miles on them since I bought my Motorhome without any wear problems, balance problems or concerns.

Sorry guys...In all my years of Motorhoming, I have yet to find a better all-around tire than Michelin. I have never tried Toyo's because I am not a fan of Japanese products, but if I ever decide to go Asian, I will give them a try.

Replaced my Michelin's with Toyo's at Les Schwab and am very pleased so far. They will also do what it takes to make you happy.

I too, am a vote for Toyo tires. We used to run them on our semi's, so was familiar with them.
When I bought my Discovery, it had Toyo's on the front, and Michelins on the rear. I changed out the Michelins last spring, saved $500.00 for the four rear ones. The Michelins were weather checked pretty bad, that's why I changed them. The Toyo's on the front showed a little wear, but no weathering so I left them on. After reading some of the threads, I decided to look at the manufacture date, and realized they were made in 2000. I bought the MH in '03, and have put 35,000 mi. on them myself, hard to tell how many were on them before I started driving it. Still no weathering, and still no appreciable wear. Toyo's are good tires.

I replaced our 10 year old, almost new looking Michelin's with Toyo's. The Toyo's were significantly cheaper, but the coach handled poorly. Lot's of sway. Unacceptable. took the coach back to the tire shop and they put Michelin's on and credited the full Toyo cost. The Michelin's are more expensive, but a better choice in my experience.

No better test than what you went through here to rate the two types of tires. As the old saying goes" you get just what you pay for"
