How does Toyo rate?

It seems the Michelins are hard to come by and the dealers know it, the price is more than it was last time we checked.

We can get some Toyo M154, searching here indicates they are liked, searching online using "michelin complaints" gets a lot of hits while "toyo complaints" returns nothing.

So the questions now are these,
How do they ride compared to Michelin?

Do they seem to handle the RV loads well?

On cornering do they stand up well or wash out?

What are the oldest ones here and how do they look?

What say ye?

I won't state the price as that is not the concern, but it is getting our attention.

My question is isn't it possible there are more Michelin complaints because they simply sell way more tires than their competitors?

We'll never know what the complaint to sales ratio is for any of the brands but I bet brand XYZ has a low volume rate.

I am reading all the threads on tires I can because I need to replace the original Michelins on my rig. I haven't heard too much positive on the Goodyear G670's, but the tire dealer I was dealing with today for another issue, says he recommends them over the Michelins. He claims the warranty is much better. Price wise there wasn't an appreciable difference. I like everyone else here am trying to get the most bang for my buck! I have never heard of "rivering", but it sounds like GY's are more prone to it than other brands?

I had never heard that term before either until I took my coach to get the front end aligned. The shop manager said my algnment was fine, and attributed the uneven wear to the dreaded rivering issue. He showed me a stack of GY's that he had removed from other coaches over the last 30 days. It was quite considerable.

Ok just reading all the comments on site brings up just a few questions.
If there is no side wall cracking when do you say uncle and buy another set?
5,7, years or more?

I feel trapped by Michelin. This is the second MH I have owned with tires sizes only
buy Michelin. They are good tires of that there is no doubt. But I like to shop around
as much as the next guy. RV bucks are getting hard to accumulate for trips or
maintenance. I know that is the price to pay for the way we play. Saving bucks
on a quality item is my goal. Toyo tires seem to be as good as the XRV's.

I did not see where anyone had a set of Toyo that were well OLD, or any negative
reports. Saving 1.5K+ on a set of 6 is a major savings if you ask me.
