Time for new tires

Itís time to put new tires on our Bay Star. She currently has the original Goodyear G670 245/70 R19.5 . They want over $600 per tire plus mount and balance or a little over $4K out the door. Have Goodyears gotten any better over the years? I canít afford to make a $4K so, please give me some insight. Which Brands are good? Which brands should I stay away from? Current tire load rating is G 14 ply (133)

Thanks in advance!

Have you looked at the FMCA tire discount program? I see Continental 245/70R19.5
Conti Hybrid HS3 tires for $390.83 +tax.
BFGOODRICH 245/70R19.5 RCTRLS LRH $362.36 + tax
MICHELIN 245/70R19.5 PILOT XZE LRH - NA XZE $454.16 + tax
I like the Continentals better than MICHELIN.

I found NTCS ( https://nationaltireconciergeservices.com/ ) had much better prices than FMCA. They had tires delivered to a shop near me who installed them. date codes were within 3 months of current date.

That’s great. I know tires are a big investment and discounts really make a big difference.

I would sure shop TOYO tires before I purchased. Great tire and excellent price point.

Time for new tires

I replaced my six 8 y/o Michelin XZA2 a few years ago. They gave me eight reliable years with nary a problem, and naught but a few hairline sidewall cracks.
I would have bought Michelin again, but for the abundance of other tires, well reviewed, excellent quality, and substantially less expensive. I simply could not justify the Michelins.
I settled on a set of the Sumitomo ST719, an excellent tire with many great reviews, well accepted by professionals, made in USA, and priced at that time out the door at about $2300 the set. I am well pleased with them. My tires are 275/70/22.5, so you may do better on price at your size. I recommend seeking out a smallish independent shop for good deals and perhaps better availability.

Do you have to pay an annual fee to join? I can't tell by looking at their website.

Yes and it is a bit substantial. But before you blow them off do check out the benefits. A big one is returning you and your RV home in case of medical issues. A way better price on this than I have found elsewhere in the market. Check it out.

No it's a one time fee.... then you can buy tires for any vehicle thru the years.

I think you are talking about FMCA--- OP was asking about NTCS, which is a one time fee.

Dang it all. That's what I get for posting pre-coffee.

Too late to delete, sorry, folks.

Thanks from mid Flowriduh.

Thanks so much for the feedback and opinions. The easiest and most expensive way would be to stick with the Goodyear G670, but, at over $600 a tire, itís more than I want to spend. Thanks again I really appreciate the input.

We replaced Michelin XRV drives with Michelin XZE 245/70R19.5 in Ď21. We chose Michelin cuz, at the time, they beat the price of any other manufacturer(other than China bombs). Proved well on first set and the new ones ride/control well. Tires are preference. Good luck!!!
