Advance Tires

I have a 2002 Monaco Signature. Looking at replacing the tires. Has anyone used the Advance brand GL290 I premium?

Another Chinese tire??? If so do not even think about buying them! There are a few quality chinese tires. Hankook is one of them. OEM for Navistar.

Check out Chicago Tire website for Samson/Advance tires 245 70R 19.5 16ply $188. I have seen several comments re: were there made but most likely China.

Just bought 2 new Goodyear G399's for my steering axle to replace the 4 year old G670's. About $475 each installed. Will address the drive axle next year.

I just replaced my G670 Goodyear drive tires with the same thing. Monaco put'em on originally and they have lasted well for 35,000 miles and six years, so I'm confident these new ones will do well. They're expensive but if these go another 6 or 7 years I will only have spend around $90 per tire per year.

I had all six of my tires replaced last year and did a considerable amount of researching and found that no matter what tire you buy you will find people that have had great experiences and bad. So after months of researching I decided to go back with the Goodyears that came with the MH new. When I bought the new ones I had 63,000 miles on the original rear tires and about 40,000 miles on replacement front tires. I am very happy with the Goodyear so far and they are considerably less expensive than the Michelin. I am a believer that you get what you pay for but in Michelin's case you are just paying for the name. Just my thought, you can take that and $1.00 and buy yourself a cup of coffee (I think not sure about inflation). Great Forum.

Don't know the brand. You have a heavy coach so just make sure you are buying a tire that will carry the load. I went up to 315's on the steer axle a couple of years ago. LR L which gave me a little extra safety cushion at a lower psi than the 295's. Then put Bridgestone R250's on the drive axle last year. Will replace the tag axle next week and hopefully will be ok for a few years (picture me knocking wood).

Thanks for the reply's. Went ahead and bit the bullet, and went with Goodyear, $775.00 each mounted and balanced. I will admit it hurt a lot, especially when buying 8 of them and they were not easy to find I might add. Oh well it is only money right!?
Thanks Again!!
