We're in the same boat. Keep me posted on what you learn. Same size too. Trying to find a good alternative is the issue.

Hi edxl370,
The XRV, like all Michelin tires is a good choice. The XRV does have a softer sidewall. This means a slightly softer ride. However, one must be meticulous about keeping the proper PSI in the tire for the load being carried. I have XZE2+ on the steer axle and XZA1 on the drive axle. For me, any of the XZA or XZE line of tires is a better choice. These tires are a bit sturdier in the side walls. For me, this means more forgiving. I have not notice any harshness increase in the ride.

Us, too. Michelin's charts call for 85 psi in ours for an axle-end weight range that goes all the way to the max for our coach. 'Seems low to some, but the engineers know best for the specific tire, and I follow their advice. So far, it seems to be a good fit. I'll put another set on the coach, when these are too old to use.

BTW, also per Michelin advice, I'll continue to use the tires past the 5 yr age from the DOT sidewall born-on date stamp; the fronts get rotated to the rear and new front tires installed.

Then, the challenge will be to get "new" tires locally, rather than those that've been on the shelf for a year or two...

I just replaced all 6 Goodyear G670 19" with Michelin XZE's that are rated at 16 ply compared to the 12 ply that I had. I had 2 blowouts in the last 2 years with the goodyear and after seeing other inputs on this site, they have a known problem. Look at the pictures and thread. The Goodyear had dates of 06.

What about costs. I had a service come out to put new Michelins XRV on the last time, as when i called the price was only about 50.00 different, the tire was $340 then, but I have been quoted as much as $500 each as of yesterday. Is this about what others have found. Course that was 5 years ago. I need new ones all the way around as well. I very interested in new tires of course other than Michelin, but the consensus seems to be to stick with Michelin.

There is a "rumor" that FMCA and Michelin are working to come up with a special price for FMCA members for a limited time only. Right now it is still in the talking stage. The rumor is 50% off MSRP! Hopefully, this will come true and not become an urban legend.

I look at this as something I have to do, I don't want another blowout. With a car is one thing, but with something that weighs 26000 lbs. you have to think differently. What pissed me off is Goodyear saying to show them the tires. So everyone with goodyear if you get a blowout and survive, mount a tire rack to show them what they already know.

I just put 6 Michelins, 22.5 on my 38 Adventurer W24. I had the XRVs before and had no troubles but they were 7 years old and showing a little weathering on the sidewalls. You must keep the air pressure up on them for good handling. Specs are 100psi on front and 95psi on back.
