Kirk! I never looked to see if Hankook had 19.5 Duh. Thinking the manufactures all have some issues depending on the series and size.
I like a firmer ride and others like a softer ride IE the sidewall difference.
In another Forum, Cooper Tires cam up and I have never thought about them for the RV,used them on my trucks for years and just drifted away from them.
Had good luck with them and they are made in the USA if that is an issue. Right in Ohio. Now do they make a 19.5 size??
Dick. currently driving a Bounder D,they just got bigger over the years.

I just put on a set of Hankook AH11 tires, 245/70R/19.5. My old tires were Goodyears G670's. They were 11 years old and still looked good, but they don't last forever and I wasn't comfortable going with them any longer. If it wasn't for the date code, you wouldn't be able to tell they were that old.

rivering is described as unusual wear on the inside or outside rib or both ribs. it usually happens with goodyear tires mounted on the front axle.
check the search function of this website for more info.

I think I am in the market for new tires.
Having old tires on an RV is like having a bad ticker. Sooner or later...

Everybody has their favorite brand. I like Michelin XRVs because they wear well and can give you (supposedly) up to 10 years of life. The downside is that they're expensive. Figure on at least $400+ apiece mounted. By the way, whatever you do, be sure to replace that never used 12-year old spare. It may look nice but the rubber is too old. Best of luck.
