Tire Replacement

I have had good performance and mileage from the Michelin tires (245/70/19.5) on my 2004 Southwind. Currently have 60,200 on the original set of tires and could go longer but a planned trip to Alaska this summer makes new tires a given. Michelin tires of course for me.

I'll go with redboots's analysis, since most every tire is pretty much up to standards nowadays, and every since the Firestone/Ford scandal.
I say it's Bridgestones or nothing unless Goodyear can beat their price by a good margin and is why I'm presently running Goodyears.

I just got a price for Goodyear equivalent of Michelin 255/80R 22.5. $645 each plus tax and mounting. Almost $700 per tire! Gonna price Hankook, Sumitomos, Toyos.

Last year I replaced my aged out Michelins with Sumitomos and have had no problems so far.
