Need Tires

Time for tires, on 10 Jayco 31fs. Has Michelin on it, 225.75.16

Any other options beside those or another brand. Seems the ltx225.75.16 m/s2 get good reviews.

Thanks again

Willie

You will probably get 45% Michelin votes and the same for Goodyear. The other 10% will be less known brands. Goodyear's are the least expensive of the two major brands. I have had them on my last 2 MH's and have had no issues.

I recently had 6 Firestones put on my MH. I am winding up a month long trip and so far have logged about 3000 miles on them and they have been great

If the recall on the Michelins is still going on you may have to wait on your order. I had to in March, not sure of the status of the recall today. I ended up putting the Firestone Transforce HTs and am also pleased with them.

Willie, A lot of Michelins that size have been recalled. Check here to see if yours are covered. If they are Michelin will replace them for free.

I had 6 Coopers of that size put on my Lazy Daze late last year.

Cost just over $800 including tax, installation, balancing and road hazard coverage. The same in Michelins (which we had on there) would have been over $2100.

The Coopers ride better.

The Cooper tires I bought are made in the USA. That's important to me.

The Michelin LTX M/S 2 that size should be around $200 each mounted, balanced, and installed.

New Tires

Ok, I have been out today shopping for tires. Stopped by two different stores and priced the michelin and they are around 206.00 a tire, about 18.oo install and balance at or about 1400.00 for everthing.

Stopped by RV dealer and they sent me to cooper dealer, they were 1150.oo, tag, tax and title or mounted and balanced including taxes. Discoverer HT3

Now after Looking at my 07 Tahoe, the previous owner put on the Michelin LTX m&s2 on it, so i know how they handle and sound. Not a apples vs apples, but close

Now the research is going on !!

thanks for all imput !!

Tires

I just purchased six new toyo open country H/T Tuff Duty tires. 10 ply rating and I have made a longer trip this past weekend. Handle great in the corners on coastal highway and ran smooth. I have used Toyo tires on heavy trucks and they served well over the other truck tires by 15K miles longer for wear!

I paid 1400 for all six to outfit our 08 highlander 31' MH

WARNING!
I have 3 year old Michelins with hundreds of small cracks developing in the sidewalls, (at 9k miles).
The first 2 sets of Goodyears never developed a sidewall crack.
I am sorry I fell for the Michelin hype.
It won't happen again).

My 2001 Itasca 29N came with Firestone tires from the factory, and after 28 K miles never had a problem with the tires. Considering its age I decided to replace them with a new set of Firestones. I'm very pleased with them - cost of all 7 tires, plus tax $1200.00.
Just do yourself a favor and remember to replace the valve stems, which my local Firestone shop failed to do, so I had to go back to them again to do that.
