I think if you do a search on tier problems you will get more hits on problems with Michelin than any other brand.
I will report back if I have any problems.

I removed the brand new Chinese tires from my Dynamax Isata when I bought it and installed the Rib Michelins . My chassis is loaded to max rating and I didn't want to wonder and worry if the tires would blow. If you are loaded well below the rating capacity on the tire you will probably be ok, tough call, what is peace of mind worth?

I think if you check you will also find that something like 90% of MH's came with Michelins for many years. Ergo: more tires in use, more complaints. Out of the five MH's we've owned, only one came with something other than Michelins, and I put Michelins on it ASAP.

I was going to say the same thing. I have no brand loyalty and always try to buy the best product for my money. There are some products that I will try to avoid if possible and that is product from China. It's not a racial thing it's a history thing. Some time it can't be avoided and we must use their product.
I didn't like the tone some where taking in this tread so I stepped too the sidelines to watch. I don't know anything about the tires from China they may be great. I will look at them in 7 years when I need a new set. I doubt I will buy them but input from folks that are running them would be interesting. I don't consider some of the comments from some of the users to be helpful yet. If you have ride quality and durability input I would be interested. I don't care that you saved money. The money you saved over the life of the tire on a critical component is not worth it. We are talking 100 dollars a year savings. You can't fill you gas tank for that. Let's take the discussion up a level and see if its a good product and worth trusting our loved ones lives to it.

I think everyone will agree that we take care of our MH's because of safety, longevity, confidence of getting there and back, and peace of mind. That's just how I feel when entering the door and look over and see the word Michelin written on the sidewall of my front tire. I won't skimp on the oil, oil filters, waxes, windshield wipers, drive belts or any other parts I put into it.....why on earth would I skimp on the tires?
