Which Model Toyo Tires?

I see people have installed both M154 and M144 tires on their coaches. Why choose one over the other?

M144 Long haul steer tire per Toyo web site

M154 Not a long haul steer tire per Toyo web site

Both are all application drive tires.

So I would suspect that the M154 has a more aggressive and less efficient tread pattern.....

I just had 8 new Toyo M154s put on my coach.

Very happy with them. Priced "in the middle".

295/80/22.5s

I went with what was recommended to me from my tire guys.

I just has M144 295/80's put on the front. Will let you know in a year or so...

Generally, the difference between a highway tire like the M144 and the "regional steer" like the M154 is that the regional use tire has better scrub resistance, meaning it has "shoulders" designed for handling brushes with curbs, pot holes, loading docks, etc. Highway tires are usually designed for better fuel economy and longer tread life when cruising the interstates.

Frankly, I doubt f the difference is measurable in typical motorhome service.

This is why I chose the M144s. The description of the M144s sounded like it would be better suited for my application (rv).

I agree with Gary - I doubt I could tell the difference between the two.

Both M-144 or M-154 are very good tires for a coach. The M-144 are used more for city driving like city buses.

The M-154 are more for long haul and high scrub applications. Both will serve you just fine. Little different tread depth. The M-154 has a deeper depth tread.

Sounds like there won't be much difference between the two in a motorhome application since they will probably age out before they wear out.
