Need tires?

You might want to think about buying LOW ROLLING RESISTANCE tires. I found this and probably will save you fuel:

Truck Tires, Bus & Coach Tires and Construction Site Tires from Continental*-*SmartWay Verified Truck Tires

I did not look for other brands because it is just the idea which I like. Plus the performance is certified.

I might be wrong but lower resistance tires are harder than RV tires and they might have a tendency to push in a corner and not grab. Just thinkin' out loud.

They would have to be stiffer. I guess I'd start worrying about my fillings.

On that particular brand, if you take the time to look through the tire selections, they address the shortcomings you are suspecting. They know what people expect. Whether or not they are successful at making everyone happy I don't know. I do know that to gain something, sometimes you must make compromises. 3% gain and certified sounded OK. You do have to take a decent look first to know what is being offered.

Think I'll stay with my Bridgestones, however, 2nd choice would be the Continental HSR's.

I'd be far more interested in tires made with materials that will last longer in terms of "shelf life" - the idea that perfectly good tires in terms of remaining tread must be replaced simply because they are 4 years old is just plan stupid and ridiculous...

Especially at costs in the $2000 range for a complete set...
