Ready for a set of tires

I am in need of tires for my 07 Tiffin Allegro. As of this time I have narrow it down to two brands Continental HSR and Toyo M143. The Toyo's are about $600 less. Both been told are good tires.

Any thoughts on these two series or suggestions on other brands. I appreciate your advice

Don't know what size you are looking at but I bought new tires last year and I have been very happy with them...

I have 295/75/22.5 Toyo M147 steers and 295/75/22.5 Toyo M154 drivers (rear). GREAT TIRES!
Much less expensive than some other brands.... But on the other hand, they are more expensive than the China tires out there.

I am using Toyo's for the last 3 years and 20,000 miles. No complaints and they still look new.

Being a travel trailer guy, I have no idea, but about what is the life expectancy of motorhome tires?

The same as other tires - 7 to 10 years.

Believe it or not, the tires that come on new trailers from the factory MIGHT last four years, and maybe not that long.

If you can use 315/80R/22.5 Michelins, I have a pair mounted on aluminum rims and will sell them to you for $600 each (tire and rim). I just put these on, one has less than 150 mi, and the other one less than 1500 mi. Reason for selling is I'm putting 365's on my coach. If you are interested PM me.
Good luck!

That's because they are Chinese ST tires, and, even though "rated" for the weight they are carrying, can't do it. Several years ago, when one of mine died at three years old, I replaced all four with LT tires.

If you choosing between Continentals & Toyo's go with the Toyo's.

I'm running Continental HSR2's, but would happily use Toyos if the price was less for the same size & load range tire. Both excellent brands, so best price would win.

Does anyone run recaps on the drive axle? My son works at a recap shop (for 18 wheelers mostly) and he set me up with 4 tires (19.5s) for $300. At another shop, it cost $200 to get them mounted and balanced since they don't do that, but still a super deal. So, what's the story on recaps for drive?
