In pricing the tires I am getting quotes for 7 tires installed and out the door.
Michelin XRV I can get at Costco for $2590.77
Yokohama at a local dealer is $2366.49
Toyo at the local dealer is $2781.31.

I am leaning to Costco for the Michelin's right now.

For me I'd opt for the Michelin brand but many others have a different point of view.

Boy, Kirk are you one lucky guy with 11-12 year ald tires. Do you think the other wheels will come off? I would opt for the Michelin also and you can be sure about the fact that the Costco price is correct.

The Michelin's at this time are not holding up well to UV at the time.

(they put the lug nuts on loosely) They then had a puller setup with chains through the wheel holes and a bottle jack on the axle.

They put on my full-size brand new, never used, 12 year old spare and I drove home. I think I am in the market for new tires. Anyone have recommendations for 245/70 R19.5 tires on a F53 Chassis?

I use Goodyear and recommend them to my customers. I have seen almost no sidewall failures with goodyear. I can't say that for the other manufactures. I got 10 yrs with my last set with no failures.

WOW! Had you noticed the date code on the tires previously? Getting 12 years and 60k on a set of tires is awesome.....I don't think I'd say adviseable....but awesome.

Based on what I've seen so far on this thread and your experience, it looks like the Goodyear are doing a pretty good job. I'm planning on replacing my front 2 first and then as the money permits I'll do the rear tires. Fortunately mine have a little more time to go - statistically anyways!

It sure makes you wonder on other motorhomes out there on the highway and how old there tires may be.

Hankook doesn't seem to have any tires at all in the size my coach uses (245/70 R 19.5) They don't have anything at all for a 19.5" rim.

But GoodYears have rivering problems and it's not covered by their warranty

Agreed!
Changed out my 8 year old Michelins for new Michelins in Sept. of last year. The new tires are dated 3010.
Maybe I'll cover them, I never have in the past.

Be sure Costco can mount and balance the tires and it's included in the price. Around here they don't have the know-how or equipment (I think that's on purpose) to work on truck size wheels/tires.
Costco could order ours but then I had to take them someplace else to mount/balance them, which negated the savings plus I had to haul 6 150# tires to the shop from the dealer.
