New Tires

Hi guys,
Just bought First RV
2000 Allegro Bus, 37 ft, 330 Cat, 3 slide. Please tell me I made a good choice! Anyway, need new tires which I knew. Currently has 10 yr old M's. However, I see talk in other threads about Toyo and Bridgestone. Are any of these more desirable (or not) on my Tiffin? Leaving to FT in a month and pulling Saturn Vue.
Thanks very much,
Mike

Congrats on your purchase and welcome to iRV2.

You'll find many threads on tires. Many people will tell you that Michelin makes the best tire, but they are also one of the most expensive. Many, including myself, join Family Motor Coach Assoc and take advantage of the Michelin Fleet Discount program. Beyond that there are no shortage of tire brands and opinions on this topic.

Michelin, Toyo, Bridgestone . . . Ford, Chevy, Dodge. Lots of folks will have all kinds of horror stories about any and all three.

Me? 2009 Winnebago Journey (Freightliner) 50,000 miles, never a problem or complaint, so I will go with what I KNOW works when my Michelins "age out" More Michelins.

What size tires do you need. That may help narrow down your search.

Not that I'm a big fan of Camping World, but check with them. They have had some sales recently on Michelin tires. Dave

I can not comment on the different tire brands.. But I'd say the bus is a good choice.. Allegro's are very nice rides.

I replaced mine last year. Got Michelin's through the FMCA program. Got a better price on the Michelins through the program than I could find on Hankook, Toyo, Bridgestone brands.

Just bought Michelin's though FMCA program, I replaced Goodyear's, the Michelin's were a lot cheaper than the Goodyear's even without the program.

What size and what tire did you get. Some of the Michelin are on back order.

When I bought mine the XRV's were also on backorder. Only took a couple weeks to get them though. The plus side was that I got tires that were only a week old when installed. Mine are 235/80/22.5.

I'll be pulling the covers off next week getting ready for our first trip this season. Of course that's assuming that the weather will warm up enough to de-winterize and get on the road.

245/70R 19.5. I was told by the Michelin Sales rep that Michelin manufactures RV tires once a year and they are just beginning to start production for this year.

Thank all for the thoughts. There are several M dealers here in Phoenix that participate in the Mich program. I am joining FMCA and getting estimates. Decided to spend a month in a park here to figure out how to actually live in it before hitting road. Will give me a chance to set up and get road ready asmuch as I need to get comfortable. Getting some driving lessons too............No doubt,, I will be a regular on the forum...........

Mike
