Cool Your new Tires, Good,Bad and the Ugly

It's time to put new tires on my Newmar Scottsdale. I have Goodyear G670 (245/70/19.5) now. The real story is I would rather not spend that kind of cash and I'm looking for some good options.

Thanks

I put Sumitomo tires of the same size on mine and I love them. They are still new so I don't have any wear info yet but they ride like a dream compared to the old tires which were very hard from sitting.

I have SAILUN S637 225/70R19.5

These run about $140 each.

These are two years old and have about 10k miles on them. They were put on the MH just before I bought it.

Good luck in your search

Our selection of Gladiator 245/70 19.5 Summer tires - tires-easy.com

API Tire > TIRES BY BRAND > GLADIATOR

They are stiffer, noisier, and two load ratings higher than my coach specs call for (load rating of F), but the previous owner put them on in 2008, these Gladiators, and have had no issues with them, but I am going to replace them with the XRV Michelins as I did on the back in 2012. These are nearing 8 years old and I want them replaced for good measure, especially since they are on the steering axle.

You'll notice the Gladiator is an all position tire, and I've had them on my steering axle with no issues. Also note the similarity in tread design to the XRV.... Gladiator is on top, XRV on bottom....

But if you want a good tire, those Gladiators do actually come with a 5 year warranty as well. And at 150/each, they are a steal, compared to the Michelins at 380/each.

The Gladiators are made in China, and have a terrible reputation
in the trucking industry.

Mine are the same with same age. They ride good, no road noise, and seem to be doing the job well. So far I like them.

X2 on the Sumitomos. I had them on my previous coach. Great ride. They're made in Japan.

I didn't know that (the reputation).

In 2011 I asked my tire shop here locally about them 2 or 3 years ago and they said they are a common used tire around here and they were unaware of any issues with them, or I'd have replaced them then.

I know they are Chinese made, but that outfit that owns them does provide the warranty (I actually called them back in 2011 or 2012 to ask them about those Gladiator tires and the warranty) so I was more comfortable keeping them on and riding them out time wise.

It's all in what you wanna pay for. Like I said, I am putting what the manufacturer specs call for, 245 70 R19.5 F to replace them. Can't wait to get the new Michelins on the front, I'm sure that's going to make a huge difference.

Hi Dannyboy,

I put new Firestone FS 560 Plus tires on my RV back on the 4th. Got them for $1850 installed (all six). I also replaced Goodyear G670's 245/70R/19.5's.

Very happy with them so far. Got a couple hundred miles so far and my rig rides just fine. Getting ready to do a 800 mile trip this Saturday to the Eastern Sierra' in California.

Good luck with your choice.

Bill
