Many many threads here regarding tires. Suggest to use the search function. Myself, I have had multiple sets of the Michelin XRV with good success. Last one bought a few months ago via the FMCA discount program - good price and great service from a very knowledgeable authorized Michelin truck tire dealer.

The size you need is probably the size you now have, unless you have some reason to believe they are inadequate. The brand is a matter of choice.

The FMCA fleet price deal on Michelins is an excellent one, but consider that other major brands probably sell for around the same price as the discounted Michelin price. Get quotes on Bridgestones, Continentals, Hankooks, Toyos, Firestones, Yokohamas, etc. in your size and load range and compare. Those are all high quality tire brands.

Some tires run softer than others. Like others, I have Michelin XRVs.
Go with quality tires as tire failure can be costly in more ways than money.

With MH tires, remember they will age out long before we run the tread off them.

This is quite interesting. I just replaced the Goodyear G670's on the coach and after 5 years they were down to the tread wear indicators.

All I can say is that the G670 is a pretty poor tire

I'm pretty-well sold on Goodyears G670's. I'm parked beside another coach with these tires now, neither of have any complaints and plan to buy more when the time comes. So far the only tires I've read complaints about here are Michelin.

My Goodyear 670's have well over 60K miles but will be replaced soon. Still have useable thread but rivering on the front to the point it'll need to replace them.

If my offer on a class A is accepted, I will be looking for tires next week. With car tires, I have always bought from a national chain that offers free lifetime rotation, balancing and repairs. Is this a consideration for RV owners? Is the vendor as important as the brand?

I have read positive reviews of Toyo and Yokohama. Where would one buy these in the Tampa area?

Here is a discussion on tires maybe helpful.
When its time to put in air maybe this will help or confuse you more, hopefully not.

tires

as you can see you will get many different opinions on tires. For me never again another goodyear. Two different motorhomes in past 5 years. 5 blowouts (last one new to us coach with 38,000 miles) all Goodyears!! Ran some Hercules a few thousand miles on last old coach no problems and now all new ones on our new coach. About half the price of most 22.5s and the tire dealer here puts them on most replacement coaches and hasn't had any problems. Just my two cents

safe travels

My G670 22.5" are 8 years 5 months old and still look good.
Plan on replacing at 10 years.

They also said that most car tire manufacturers now recommend replacement every 6 years
The tire dealer & manufactures sell What?
Michelin does say replace at 10 Years. Don't think any other manufacture will even say change on a time bases.

Fast oil change places still say, every 3,000 change your oil.
And it has been years & years since any manufacture had that in a owners manual.
