I don't have any experience with the truck version of Continental but on my car the Continental tires are much better wear and ride than Michelin.



If I had to replace my Michelin truck tires the Conti Coach HA3 looks like a really appealing option, considering the TPMS built into the tread liner.

Recently put 6 Contis on MH and very happy.
I used the FMCA discount program and very happy with the process and price. Worth looking into. It was much simpler than the Michelin discount out program.
You can go online at FMCA and get a quote for the specific size you are looking for. You can use any Conti dealer capable of handling your size and they will quote install $.

Thru FMCA I bought 8 Continental HSR2 sa 315/80r22.5 tires for my 2014 dutchstar 4364. 20,000 miles so far and are very happy and would recommend them.

Thanks all for the comments. I would go through FMCA, as it looks like I can get them quite a bit less than the Michelins.

Have them on our coach now. We have been running them for 3 years now and they are great so far. They ride well and hold air pressure well. Would happily buy them again. Ours are HSR2's.

+1 on the HSR2. 25k trouble free on the tires. As the poster above has said, they hold air very well. The only time I deal with the tire pressures are the big temperature swings going north to south and back in snowbird season.

We have Continentals on our Ford super duty work trucks and they are all absolute crap. I swear not one of them is round. Maybe the big rig tires are better but that experience alone will keep me from buying another Continental.

Another vote for Continental HSR2. Had them for 3 years and all is well.

As an update, I also run Continental Contacts on my Ford Edge. Love them there, too.

X2 for the Continental HSR2. We had 6 put on our RV 12 months ago. We have about 10,000 miles on them and they have performed very well. We got ours thru the FMCA discount and as others have stated it was very easy to find a Continental truck tire dealer and have them confirm the price!

We just made our first trip with 8 new Conti Coach HA3i tires purchased through the FMCA program. Handling and ride were as good or better than the Michelin tires they replaced. The 7 year old Michelins were cracked severely where the tread attaches to the casing. You couldnít really see those cracks until they were off and you flexed them. Time will tell, but, so far, Iím impressed with the Contis. Now considering the Continental TPMS that will take advantage of the embedded sensors. Anyone have experience with it?

Thanks - Phil
