Bridgestones vs Dynatrac vs Double Coin Tires

Which of these 3 do you have on your coach? I currently have 10 yr old Bridgestones 8R19.5 12 ply and they appear good still. My mechanic has suggested any of these 3 brands as being fine with a difference in price of $260 to $225 to $200 apiece for each.

So, those that run on one of these 3 brands, please give us a quick review of yours.

At 10 years old you are living on borrowed time, so you do need new tires even if the old ones look good. When I bought my coach used the previous owner had put Chinese built Dynatrac tires on the front and these lasted well until I replaced all my tires with Yokohamas. As a budget tire the Dynatrac is a good choice but I feel more comfortable with a premium grade tire.

We used to run the Double Coin on the forklifts at work-about the only place I would run them.
If price is a concern, check out FMCA Michelin program. I got a killer deal on new 385/65R22.5 for my rig.

I would think that if your Bridgestones have given you trouble free service for the past 10 years, why change to another brand. Personally, I would stay with the Bridgestone brand even if I had to pay a few extra $$$ for them.

Tires are the weakest link between your coach and the pavement. I've had Bridgestone tires on our first and current coach for the past 17 years with zero problems.

Good luck with your choice and safe travels...

Well, I decided to just stick with what works and pay the extra $500 so as not too worry. So, new Bridgestone 8R19.5 12 ply it will be. First trip will be to southern Utah and North Rim of Grand Canyon in 3 or 4 weeks.

Got to get a new rear air, new Sirius XM radio, and two new HD TVs outfitted in the coach. Costco has a great price on 24" 1080p HD Samsung's until May 4th I believe. $169 at store, and it can be used as TV or PC monitor. Samsungs are great TVs. Gotta find the adjustable wall mounts and decide where they will go exactly after I take the old square little TVs out of their little square cabinets. I think I will be able to find a mount that will anchor inside the cabinet of the old TVs and stick out far enough to swivel all around and still fit flush against the opening, hiding the empty space, when not in use.
