I started looking yesterday. Best price I have found so far are Toyo's on the net. Have run Bridgestone R-250s for years and they have been good but a little harsher on ride since they are a truck tire. Reviews for Toyo's have been good so I may go that way.

What I would really like to get a few ideas on tires that are not very prone to blowouts as not wanting to experience this on the road. Seems that most tires still have miles left in them after they stat to break down. Had Michelins on the last motorhome I had and the side walls were in bad shape and only four years old. The motorhome I just purchased have original Good years on and the side walls still look good at ten years.

I have been a Michelin fan, but plan to look into alternatives next year. Toyo and Hankook are on my list.

I have Toyos on the rear and find that there is less wallowing than with the Michelins that I had before. I'll be putting them on the steer axles on of these days.
I had Hankooks on the last Thomas school bus I was driving before I retired and they were a great tire and never had a problem with them. It's amazing just how fast they get a lot of mileage on them when you're just an in town school district. I used to average around 100+ miles a day on my regular route, but also did a lot of out of town trips.
