Need new rubber up front. Present Michelins are 235/85/16 RIB.

Is there any other brand (price factor) that anyone else is satisfied with. In these times, need to save some cash.

Not sure about a MH, but I have some Coopers on my F-250 PS that are great. We use this truck for just the farm and pulling a gooseneck flatbed now, but the previous set of Coopers got outstanding milage.

I have been running Continentals on the front of my motorhome for about 18 mo now. They have been great ...probably around 15k miles so far. The Continentals were $100 less for each tire than the original Michelins, which I could not get at the time. Mine are 22.5" 16 plys ...don't know if they make 'em in your size or not.

We own a semi tractor and our son in law drives it. We watch the "big boys" like Walmart and the other big fleet outfits to see what they are doing with tires. They are all outfitting the steer tires with Michelens and drive tires with Firestone. Of course it changes over times as manufacturers make changes in tires, but that is what works best right now...

Michelin is a fine tire, all steel casing in the XPS Rib. Another option with an all steel casing is the Bridgestone Duravis R250. You might check the price on those.

Both of these are great tires and highest quality, needed...IMHO... where your front axle weight is probably close to the max carrying capacity of 235/8516.
