Michelin vs Goodyear???

My Class C has LTX M/S Lt 225/75R16 Load Range E tires, and I 'cranked' a spare tire and wheel from the dealer when the sale was consumated.

The dealer has supplied a new wheel and a Wrangler SR-A LT 225/75R16 Load Range E tire.

I would have liked to have had a matching tire but this is what I received. In fairness to the dealer, Camping World, their Good Sam Road Service Company is Black's Tire for this area and Black's do not sell Michelin.

My question is- Is the Goodyear Wrangler SR-A the same quality as a Michelin LTX M/S?

Goodyear Wranglers came on my last SUV from the factory (don't remember exactly which ones). They wore out in 20,000 miles and were very noisy. Switched to Michelins and they lasted about 35,000 miles and were much quieter.

Michelin does not make the M/S tires any longer. The new ones are the M/S2. Had M/S on my RV and now have the M/S2 tires. Too soon to tell how they will wear (if they ever do before they are too old) but they seem to be a little quieter on the highway than the M/S tires I had on the RV before.

BTW you know many of the M/S tires were recalled right? Recall

Thanks for the response, yes I have read about the Michelin recall.

I did not post the tire description properly, the tires on my coach as MS2's.

I checked the price of the Michelins and they are $196, and the Goodyear equivalent is $187.

I guess I can live with the Wrangler as a spare

The "Wrangler' that is OEM on a car or SUV is probably not the same one you buy as a replacement. Goodyear uses the Wrangler name on a bunch of tires, sometimes with slight differences in the name, e.g. Wrangler MT, Wrangler Authority, Wrangler AT, or whatever. Very difficult to know just what quality you are getting (which may be reason to avoid them).

I see mixed reviews for Goodyear's. I must say that I have Goodyear Ensurance(sp) on the toad and have put just over 80,000 miles on them and they have worn true. I rotated and balanced them every 6,000 miles.
What are some views on Bridgestone? I really can't afford Goodyears or Michelin for the PA. There are Bridgestones on the front end of the PA now and have had no problems with them.?????
Thank you,
