Tires on Tiffin gas models

Didn't see a section on tires, so heres my question - anyone ever use anything other than Michelin. I've got a couple of years left on original Michelin's, but wondered if anyone has gone to another brand. Dave

I assume you are talking about 22.5" specific. There should be quite a bit of information by doing a search. I know Michelin is size specific on there tire but people have opted for other brands Toyo, Hankook etc. You just have to be sure that you have the proper clearances available when changing tire brands. Good luck and hope you find the ones that may work best for you.

tires are 235x80x22.5 I'll probably stay with Michelin, but wondered about others that had actually been used. I was considering Bridgestone, but they are having a recall on some 22.5's because of tread separation. Dave

I have 19.5's and I am on a 3 year cycle of replacing tires. A local shop "Precision Frame and Alignment" highly recommends Bridgestone\Firestone tires. Our first set have been great so far and look forward to updating them all.

For a 2012 coach, what is the milleage on that MH ?
Michelin tires don't have thread issues before quite long but do have sidewall issues after 4-5 years.

100 lbs is the MAX for that size tire and IMO it runs pretty rough; I run them at 90 lbs front and back without any issue.

Actually the max on sidewall is 110 lbs. I took my mh to a large truck repair place for a frontend alignment and they had the tires at 110 and it was a very rough ride. I don't have the mh loaded down to much and 95lbs cold front and back seem to work fine for me. I've got 16,400 +or- miles on it. I'll probably have age and not mileage issues on these tires. Dave

On our 2016 36LA, I run 95 front and 85 rear tire pressures. That's using actual weight and info from Michelin.

Travel safe.

Actually the pressure on the sidewall of RV size tires is NOT the max cold pressure.
It is the MINIMUM cold pressure required to support the maximum rating of the tire. Right now I'm on the computer at work so I'll post the printed quotes from Michelin, GoodYear, Toyo and Motorhome Magazine when I get back from lunch.
What I post will be the verified statements from the published sources that anyone can look up.
