Good years are $298 per and I see some post that say they got the DC tires for $150..Just need to know where to get them ?
Thanks, Ted O.

If there is a Les Schwab dealer in your area, they would be a good bet.

Make sure you are comparing apples to apples when you compare prices - some of the Double Coin tires have less tread depth than more expensive brands. That doesn't make them a bad deal for your application, as long as you understand what you are getting. Also compare temperature ranges, load ranges, etc.

Houndog,

You have a nice MH. Remember you pay for what you get. 4th tier tires (which is what Double Coin is) lose air pressure faster than higher quality tires. Sometimes up to 4-5 psi/month. Bridgestone/Mich/Firestone/Goodyear and other major and 2nd tier brands lose about 1 psi/month. IMHO I would spend a bit more money. Those are pretty Bloodhounds! Check Toyo, Cooper, Dayton, even Kumho or Hankook before DC. again my opinion. And "I" would not have DC on the front.
