New tires

Just ordered 6 new Toyo M177's 16ply for my rig. After speaking to the tire guy he said that that M177 was a better ride then the M144 or M154. I currently have Yokohama my617 and love the ride but he said the design of the M177 would be an even better ride.


Any thoughts?

I and many others here have Toyo M144's. Many of us Went from Michelins to Toyo's. Most if not all are happy with the their choice. I love mine. Coupled with your air ride, suspension and right tire pressure they make for a very comfortable ride. And the price is very fair too.

M177 are about $100 more per tire but I am okay with that if I can get a better ride then I already have and I believe the load rate is higher at the same psi also

Bruce,
What are you looking at for a total out the door on those tires?

I purchased 6 Toyo M177s for my coach in May 2019. I have about 10,000 miles on the tires and really love the improved ride over the Goodyear GY670s. I had the known rivering problem with the Goodyears in 2015. I had to take the two front tires and move them to the rear inside. No more Goodyears for me!

We run Toyos but get them in Oregon at a Les Schwab dealer because of no sales tax! The amount of sales tax is a nice chuck of change. We do front tires one year and two years later do the back ones. Then a 5 yr lull before repeating.

Iíve been toying with this idea as well. Which dealer do you like?

I bought 2 Hankook AH12 tires while on a trip to Oregon.
I was having other service done at Henderson's Line Up in Grant's Pass Oregon. They installed the tires for me.

Later, when I replaced the rear tires I checked current pricing at Oregon suppliers. Then I got a quote from the Point-S tire in Red Bluff, CA.

They matched the Oregon pricing even including California sales tax. I bought local and didn't incur the fuel cost of a trip to Oregon.

I sold the 6 new looking 13 year old tires to a local trucker for $900.

I have found that prices for many items are higher in Oregon even after allowing for Cal. Sales tax.

The Costco in Redding does a land office business selling booze to travelers heading to Oregon.

Tires

Last May I purchased new Hercules H-804 , 14 Ply, EcoFT at Point S in Gresham OR. Installed , mounted, balanced, new valve stems $2892.78 . I replaced the Hercules H-801 tires that were new 7 years ago when I bought the coach. The old tires showed no wear, and performed well with ride and tracking inflated to 95PSI. They aged out and I had no hesitation replacing with same tire and brand. Hercules is a Cooper Brand. Very satisfied. Had 35,000 miles on the old set.

We always stop at the Escapee Co-Op Park in Sutherlin, Oregon (10 miles north of Roseburg). There is a Les Schwab dealer there and they do a lot of logging trucks. I usually take the receipt for the last set of tires in, tell them 3 months old or less (often 6 -8 weeks old) and set up for a morning to do it. They are pretty fast, I think it took them 30-40 minutes. They have all the jacks they need, compressor to power tools, etc.
