spritz, the Samsons I have are 22.5 and they are quiet. I think they make a 19.5, searching for them might save some money. As far as extended stems, as long as they are metal, they should be good, at least in my experience with the 22.5 rim. Tire shop mounting them should know.

Anyhow, the Samson brand is made in Isreal and is pretty cheap..........oh, shoot me, I had to say it

Not a lot of reviews about them, but the ones I read were positive. Does anybody have first-hand experience with them? Getting a set of 6 for less than $2000 trips my trigger. Oy vey!

Considering that we don't put a lot of miles on tires, and that we tend to not keep vehicles more than a few years, I don't see a downside to our situation, but would like to know from others about Samson tires.
Camping World is now advertising Samson MH tires on the same page as Michelin MH tires. Guess that is the high/low price of things.

Update on buying the Samsons. 5,000 miles and the tires are fine. Road noise comes from the entry door (can use a new gasket) and probably the forward-mounted sat dome.

I used part of the money savings to invest in TPMS, which takes the guesswork out of feeling that the tires are running safely.

I have Samson's on mine also. I purchased the rv in florida last August and drove it to Connecticut taking the long way home putting on about 1800 miles. I went from a 1994 PaceArrow gasser with a P30 chassis. What a difference,this thing tracks straight and smooth and none of that wandering all over the road or that getting sucked in and then blown out with passing 18 wheelers. Heading out in a month and will be putting on another few thousand on the tires. Will update good or bad when we return.
