Best Price on Tires?

It will soon be time for me to replace my Goodyear 275/70R22.5 tires. Any suggestions on where I might find the best price?

Craig;
I'm in the process of replacing my tires. I have 24570R19.5 tires but I can offer this for you. Camping World gave me an estimate of $2540.00 for 6 Michelin XRV's. Two different independent Goodyear dealers gave me an estimate of about $2400.00 for six Michelin XZE's which are better tires. I'm going with the Goodyear dealer in Crossville.... $397.00 each plus tax. I would quess that Goodyear tires would be about the same and CW could be the most expensive.

I sent an email to Michelin and asked the same question on which of the was best for motorhome

This is what they told me....

.

According to your email you are interested in both the XRV and the XZE for your motorhome and would like to know the differences in the 2 tires. Both tires are acceptable for your motorhome but the XRV would be the recommended replacement tire for your motorhome. This tire is built specifically for motorhomes. The characteristics that I am listing below make this a very desirable tire for motorhomes

- See through grooves promote drainage efficiency to help combat hydroplaning and improve wet traction
- Multi-siping helps deliver better grip and longer, more even wear -shallow, stable tread generates lower heat and is built for greater durability, and reduced squirm
- improved handling
-Cool-running tread compound designed to improve durability
- increased ozone resistance in sidewalls helps provide excellent weathering resistance


The XZE was designed for commercial application and the XRV was designed specifically for motorhomes because they are not driven as much as commercial vehicles.

Hope that helps

Living in SoCal with the smog & the sun, I prefer to stay with the Goodyear G60RV, because of the anti-oxidant and anti-ozonant compounds manufactured into the tire.

I agree and that is an important factor in chosing RV tires that you are going to keep for six years and maybe not put many miles on them. That ozone problem is why Michelin recommends their XRV tire.

My experience is the Goodyear are better at resisting sidewall cracking in So.Cal. I now have 22.5 XZE's. The XRV's were 4-1/2 years old when they started blowing out side walls from cracking. My friend has 9 year old Goodyears that look good.
