Don't forget to compare weight ratings between your existing tire load ratings and anything you are considering. Don't want to create an overloaded tire situation if you are close to your axle weights, especially the front.

Steve, you are too kind. As you know, Mutant ohmmmmms are the most powerful of any ohmmmmmms. Right knee is on the fast track for healing. I see no reason we can't launch this adventure by March 27 or 28.

I think your Curtis 129 is my Curtis 127 which I have listed. In either case, I think we're talking about the same mutant.

In my crazy tire adventures in Utah and Washington, I have ended up with 2 255/70R/22.5 tires by Falken on the front (635 total) and 4 255/70R/22.5 tires by Samson on the rear (1,741 total). All came highly recommended by each of the dealers. In truth, it's the best that each had. LOL.

I will not buy another Michelin RV tire. Their availability at any given time (especially summer travel time) seems to be very iffy. Finding a match for their funky sizing is near impossible. You can get close with another brand that you find in Watchamacallit, Idaho but it won't be a match for Michelin's sizing.

It's interesting, there are lots of threads on tires, pro, con or indifferent. But when I settled on the Hankook's to replace the Goodyear's, I got 6, 275/70 x 22.5 for $3000.00 in Tucson. They were $1200 cheaper than Michelin's, and $2200 cheaper than Bridgestone's. I don't know what kind of breaks you get from the FMCA deal but I was satisfied with what I was able to negotiate.
