Your Opinion On Tires
I know there have been several discussions on tires. I have read most of them but here is my reason for this post. I drive a 41 foot Gulf Stream Friendship, GVW 30,000. Last May I changed my 2 front tires and put on Michelins and had them use the beads for balancing. I was very pleased with the difference from the Goodyear tires with conventional weights for balance. Now it is time to replace the rear tires also Goodyears. The cost for the 2 front tires ws just a hair (a very fat hair) over $1200. I have been quoted Firestone FS560 Highway A/P at $305.00 each.
As I have said I read most of the previous posts concerning tires but what is your opinion? Will I be able to "feel" a ride difference with the truck tire vs a motorhome tire? I do have air suspension on the coach and these will be going on the rear. I run the coach close to gross axel weight on the rear (20,000 lbs). This does equate to a buy one get one on price compared to the front tires I bought earlier this year. Opinions are asked for I just need others thoughts that I may not have run across yet.
