Thank you for your reply I forgot about the hankook. Do you have them on your rig and how do they handle?

I used 19.5 Sailuns on my Jayco 33ss super "C" for 6 years and many trips from Colorado to Florida and back. They wore like iron......
Now have 22's on our Pace Arrow and they are doing well with 4 round trips so far.
Very reasonable price too.

Toyo M154 get my vote. They're made in Japan. I've also had decent luck with Sumitomo tires, made in Japan as well.

Chinese tires might be ok for a passenger car, but no way would I use them on a motorhome.

Ironman tires. I have that brand on my Jeep GC. They ride smooth and handle well in the rain and everyday driving. They also wear well. I know it is a different size and all from what you need. I tried to research them and seems they make them for big trucks and cars. I never found anything negative on the brand. My size is 265-60-18.

Tire Recommendations

I had to buy an Ironman as a replacement while on the road. Seemed to work OK but I have heard they are cheaply made. I have a set of Firestones on my 2008 Surf Side and they are great! They hold their pressure and ride very nice. I haven'y had to add air in over a year even after sitting for months.

No, I don't. I couldn't find AH11s. Appears they've been replaced by AH35s which are getting mixed reviews. BTW, my tires are 245/70 19.5 & I need 7 of them.

Anyway, it was a choice between Firestone and Hercules. I chose Hercules because they were $1K cheaper than the Firestones.

Thank you for all your recommendations. I have decided on the Hercules for the price point and also the reviews online and your recommendations

I have 2a year and a half and 7000 miles on my Hercules Strong Guard HRAs. I really like them. Smooth and quiet.

Hercules Tires 245/70R19.5

Highly recommend Hercules Tires. Great ride. Longevity. My 2006 Sea Breeze has the Hercules wrapped for 6 years and will get new set in the next couple years. Just replacing within the recommended 6-8 year time span. My family that rides in my rig is more important that than the cost of replacing aged tires.Happy and safe travels to all.
