Just got a used 2001 Dutchstar Diesel Pusher and I need new tires. Has anybody had experience with Bridgestone in the 22.5 size?

I am running 22.5 Bridgestones. Have about 2,000 miles on them with a great ride. Had Toyo tires prior. 5 years and 40,000 miles of success with Toyo then had new Toyos installed and they bounced so badly that they could not be corrected. The Bridgestones are great by comparison.

Welcome to the list!!

I notice lots of 22.5 Bridgestones on OTR trucks around the country. I had good luck with Bridgestones on cars over the years, and would not hesitate to use them on my motorhome.

s8t I have the 19.5 Bridgestones on our coach and find them to be a great tire. Also had them on our first coach never had a problem. They're my first choice of motor home tires.

I replaced the tires on a class A with Bridgestone and a class c as well. Both were commercial series radials and loved them. Never had a problem and the ride was better than the Firestones and Michelins on them originally.

Thank you for your responses. I think I'm going to go with the Bridgestones. $200 less than the Michelins

The Bridgestone tires do not have steel cord sidewalls. Make sure whatever you buy have the correct load rating. We replaced the tires on our 2001 DSDP and the cost for 6 was about $3300. These tires are steel cord side wall tires. It is my understand that only Michelin and Goodyear have steel cord sidewalls available.

You will have to make your own decision as to how important this is to you.

Snail1, don't know where you're getting your information on Bridgestones not having steel cord in sidewalls.

For whatever it's worth, the sidewalls on my Bridgestone R250F series, load range "G" read: "Plies: tread 5 steel sidewall 1 steel."
