New tires

Well after talking to the previous owner of my 21' 89 mallard sprinter , and seeing some sidewall cracks on the michlin ltx's ,( man my car has michllins with cracks in them too lol ) I've decided that since there 10 years old it's time to replace then. 1st off I love Canadian tire , I pay more but I can return things always with no hassle and usually no receipt, and ifeel like I'm supporting my country by shopping there, that being said , is anyone running motomaster all terrains on their rigs, the specs try say they are 10 ply with a nice aggressive tread pattern. And the prices are always nice , any feedback would be Awsome

I'd say your tires are in need of replacement! I admire your pride in Canadian products but Canadian Tires are mostly from South Korea or China (Hancock plant) County of origin is encoded in the first 2 letters of the DOT code.

If the tires meet the size and load dictated by your RV, no reason not to think the tires will be good. Michelin seem overpriced to me, and the sidewall issue is also a concern. I don't go off roading with my RV, so I'd question the need for 'all terrain' tires, but that's just me.

Welcome to the IWIHBMTC, (I Wish I Hadn't Bought Michelin Tire Club).
Our numbers are growing.
I just had 6 3 year 7 month old Michelin XZEs replaced because the sidewalls were cracking.
I can't tell you which tires to buy.... but I can tell you which brand I will NEVER BUY AGAIN.

Are they so aggressive that they will be noisy going down the road?

Just a thought.

I'm not sure which to go with either.
Yes Michelin are out for me.
I have Goodyear's on my 99 concours and have Hankooks(HL) on my 64 deville. Really happy with both.
There are Bridgestones on the fronts now and have had no trouble with them either.
A tough Decision

I too went with an all terrain tire as we drive icy, snow covered roads every so often, plus we go boondocking on dirt roads that can turn to mud after rain storms. So I understand your desire for all terrain tires on you MH.

I went with Sailun tires. They are Chinese tires that are made for the Canadian, American, and European markets. There was a write up about them in one of the car magazines, sorry I don't remember which one, and they got rave reviews when they went head to head with Michelin, Goodyear, Perelli, and another brand I don't remember. After reading the article I ordered 6 of the Sailun Regional Drive Tire - S737 load range G/14 ply. They were $220 each at the time I got them from Rutybore on eBay. I then had them mounted and balanced for $35.00 each at my local mechanic's shop. Depending on where you live, it is possible to find a tire dealer that handles Sailun tires. There was no one here in Arkansas that handled them then. So far I have been very pleased with them. I replaced the 8R19.5 tires with 245/70R19.5 tires and the difference in handling was significant. I emailed Rustybore before ordering and he said all the trucks and MHs he has mounted them on have all liked them so well he increased his Sailun line. If you cannot find what you need on eBay, you can contact them and they probably have them, just not available through eBay. BTW, there was free shipping on the tires. If you go with these, I think you will be very pleased, in all the road conditions we have traveled on, we have never had any problems in handling or traction whether it be ice, snow, or mud.

If they're 10ply tires, they're load range E, and I'm assuming 16"? Just hit your local Walmart, they carry 16" LT, 10ply tires for around $120ea.
