rv tire question

It's time to replace my rv's tires. I currently have Michelins (09s except for one new one last year.) In my price checking info, Michelins are running over 600.00 each. A couple of people have recommended Toyos to me that are almost half the price of Michelins. From what I read online, people are quite satisfied with Toyos. They can be a bit noisy. My question is: is it ok to put 5 Toyos on my MH and leave the new Michelin on the front? There seems to be some questions about mixing brands. Thanks for any info you might be willing to share.

NO, don't mix tires on the same axle.
If you're a member of FMCA you can use their Advantage tire program and save big $'s on Michelins and now Continental tires.
I bought 4 - 365/70 and 4 - 315/80 Michelins last Sept for just over $530 each although mounting and balancing added to that.

If you are looking at Toyos then look at Yokohamas and Bridgestones also. I just put Yokohamas on the DS and I'm happy so far. BTW they are quiet. I have 295/80/22.5 and paid $365/ each mounted. Balancing was an additional $18/per.

Hankooks are another reasonably priced tire to consider. We have used them on our rvs and personal vehicles for 10+ yrs. Also, as others have stated,"do not" mix tire brands and in most cases they should be replaced in pairs is what I've been told.

Firestone FS591 here. Bought early this year and a few thousand miles ago. Replaced the OEM Michelin tires, which were cracking...
