I always like the tire threads, and now that I've been scared into changing my 6 year old Goodyears, I thought I'd look for help/ideas from fellow Monaco owners.
My Goodyear G670 tires are 275/80r22.5 (H) with a 2006 date code and 30,000 miles. They suffer from the rivering problem. I'm angling toward Michelin XZE2
, Continental HSR2 SA or possibly Bridgestone R280 (but the closest size is 295/75r22.5). The Continental HSR2 SA
is a newer "special application" tire specially made for buses and coaches, but there are not many reviews on it. Here is Contis main page
for RV tires (not specific to HSR2 SA).
The Contis seem like a good direction, but I'm a little concerned about being the guinea pig with the HSR2 SA, and also a little concerned about Michelins with so many early wear and blowout complaints (mainly on RV.net). Would any of you take a shot on the new Contis or stick with Michelin?
Michelins are a tad higher.
Costco - Michelin XZE2 $547
Local Shop - Michelin XZE2 $555
Local Shop - Continental HSR2 SA $492
Local Shop - Continental HSR2 (standard regional) $466
BTW, this tire shop charges $25/tire mounting + $25/tire balancing. They will give me as much as $100 back per tire on my G670s (after they see them).
Thanks for any feedback,
