I replaced my Goodyear's with 6 new Hankooks (275-70-22.5) in June. We're 2,500 miles into an extended trip and I am pleased with my purchase (out-the door for $2,700). They ride and handle great and I would recommend them over Goodyears and their rivering.

I had the owner of a trucking company tell me about Sumitomo ST709. I started doing research, and could find nothing negative about the tire. It is an all position tire. I went to the largest truck/rv tire dealer in our area and requested the tire. He looked at me like I knew something. In a low voice, he said, "We sell a lot of Michelins, and we have a lot of them come back, we have never had a Sumitomo come back". I'm sure they sell a ton more Michelins ( there were Michelin signs all over the place) than Sumitomo's, but I have been very happy with my decision. They also ride and handle great.

Hankook 19.5's here too - over 5 years and no issues. I have balancing beads in them.
Previous tires were a mix, but a four were Hankook - they were over 8 years old when replaced (no issues).

Just ordered the 2 front new XRV for my coach, so now it will be on all new XRV's, can't wait to feel and drive with the new ones up front. Should make a marked improvement over those bumpy 16 ply truck tires.

I have those tires on my steer axle. They're almost 4 years old and I have nothing but good to say about them. You'll be happy.

Just installed 245/70/19.5 Sumitomo ST 718's on my 2004 Damon, 34 ft.
Finished a 6,000 mile trip to Canada and back and tires were great. Quiet and rode very smooth. Paid $2,200 for six installed and balanced. Good luck and just pick the tires that sound good to you. Too much tire info will drive you nuts.
