New Tires

Well, I have surfed all the treads about tires. Today I went down and put two new steer tries on my coach. I had ment to get the Bridgestone R250 or the R280, until I was told they have been back ordered and hard to get in 295/75/22.5. So, I ended up with Firestone FS590+. I am replacing the G670's that I had up front, the ride and handling was very noticeable from the moment I pulled out onto the road. I drove home on some pretty rough roads, about 25 miles, so far every excited that I went with them. They cost $443.00/each mounted and balanced. Thanks for all the info.

Welcome to the forum.

Just replace tires on our mh last year. I too noticed a big difference. But I'm told that is to be expected from newer tires. My old Michellins were not worn out, just old (8 years). I understand the new rubber and tread designs are making a difference too.

Keep posting your experiences and questions.

Is it true that tires should be replaced every 5 or 6 years no matter the milage? I heard that there were blow out problems if you run them longer that that. I only have 35000 on the G670 on my Camalot. The steers need to be replaced soon. I just got the front end aligned and that helped the wear.

Most folks recommend you replace coach tires at the 7 year point regardless of mileage.

My opinion: Some of the worst tires are the Goodyear G670 that come on new Monaco coaches. Mine started blowing out at the 5 year point.
