Considering Uniroyal 225/75R/16 E

Need to put new rubber on my "new to me" 2005 Itasca 29B. Choices, right now, are Uniroyal, Goodrich or Michelin. I'm a newbie and want these to provide safety and value. Would appreciate hearing from users. Thanks.

Due to the Michelin recall everyone has been reporting long waiting /back orders on the replacements. Michelin has started allowing substitutions of both Uniroyal and BFG (both owned by Michelin) for those affected by the tires recalled. All three you listed are good tires, if you need a fourth option Firestone Transforce has gotten good reviews and a good price margin.

I think what Michelin is doing for all their customers by replacing 4 year old tires free of charge due to higher than anticipated failure rates says a lot about their company values.... I will continue to purchase Michelins

If you want Michelins, consider joining FMCA and use the Michelin Advantage program to buy the tires considerably less expensive. You still must pay to have them installed, taxes, valve stems balancing etc--but you gotta pay the same thing for any tire you buy. check the fmca website.

Thank you, all ...

for your replies. I shall check out the Firestones before final decision. It, too, is a great company.
