Please when responding regarding your tires, include the model number, not just the brand. Very important as there are differences between model of tires.

Having said that, I just got pricing from my local commercial dealer who gets a lot of RV referrals from General RV. He said he rarely replaces Goodyears or Michelins in kind, most go with a different tire, and he gets most of his customers into Toyos. I need 245 R 19.5's on my rig and he recommended Toyo M143 as his most popular RV tire in that size. G670's were $554 per tire installed, the Toyo M143's were $387. Right now I have G670's on the front going on 6 years, the rear duals are G647's and are going on 9 years, all tires look to be in very good condition, no checking, little tread wear and little rivering on the steer tires. Going to Toyos saves me over a grand.

CJ7ole ... Pricing you show for Toyo M143 at $387 is what I paid at Les Schwab in Sacramento area. But after 3 trips to LS and choosing the best from 12 tires they tried, I got frustrated with an out-of-balance vibration that we just couldn't remedy. Joining FMCA ($50 first year), I purchased the Michelin XRV 245 for 19.5 at $382.70; check out the Michelin Advantage program on michelin.com. Michelin distributor will ship to Michelin dealer for mounting. Need to add mounting and balancing to that. I have had Toyo's previously and was pleased ... FYI, in the Michelin program, you can also purchase for autos and trucks. Something to consider.
