Tire? Ugg

Just noticed checking on my michelin XZA2 295/80R22.5 tires.

A couple quick questions.

It sounds like the xline energy z is replacing that tire, correct?

6 tires mounted and front balanced tax included at $4077 sound reasonable?

(Tires each at $592.22)

Thanks in advance. Have never had to shop for big tires!

BTW this is at Loves Travel

Put 6 Toyo's on our coach 3 years ago. They ride/wear great. Got a great price at an online tire dealer. $1800 for 6 with tax and shipping. Had them shipped to my tire techs and they installed for $35 each tire. TOYO M122 255/70R22.5 140/137L H16 Tires Direct

I just put 8 new Yokohamas on in April $3200 mounted and balanced. I have almost 6,000 miles on them since then, and the handling and noise is great.

Timely.

I just returned from a trip to Southern Tire Mart. My Toyo's have aged out with nearly 45,000 miles. I priced the Michelins, too. The FMCA price is the best ~$700 per tire.

I've had a good experience with the TOYO's. The have been a firm ride because they were 14PLY rated (G) and had to be inflated at 110psi to carry the weight. This time around I looked at the Michelins then I looked at the TOYO's. I really like the tread on the M177 in their 16PLY (H) rated tire. Very good tapered groove construction to throw rocks out at a low speed, deep inner block siping and a decoupling groove on the sidewall. The side wall flexes as the tire carries its load, this also makes the tire squirm from the side loading. The old TOYO's wore the most on the front tire at the edge. So the edge decoupling keeps the tire square with the surface. The new tires are smooth even at max pressure, 125psi. Further the ride was softer without the harshness I'd felt before. I like the tires. I will be able to de air them to 105 in the rears and 115 upfront.

Service. I talked to the asst. manager to get my quote. I voiced my concern about getting as young a tire as possible because of the RV usage. He took me to the warehouse and should me 6 tire with a 2517 date code. All from the same factory and all with in a week of each other. So ~4 months old. I accepted the bid and took it in yesterday afternoon. He called same day and said they were done.
They have an alignment rack, however, because the MH didn't pull and steering wheel was straight I decided I shouldn't fix something that wasn't broke. I went to pick up the MH today and discovered they'd spin balanced all six tires, no charge. New stems of course. They also had reasonably priced a calibrated tire gauge. He calibrated in front of me.

The MH has never driven this nice and what little wander it had before is gone, I'm thrilled.

Bottom Line? $2701.26 out the door.

I know others will make their own choices. I used the one near Panama City, FL. Talk to Brian or Scott.

Best wishes and safe travels.

on edit: I see I left out the tire size, 295/75 22.5 518 revs per mile

John,

If you want to stick with Michelins, some say it's worth joining FMCA, just for that. They have good deals on michelins and continentals.

When I got 2 new steers last spring, replacing the timed out Bridgestones, they gave me $100/tire trade in for the old ones. I'm sure they sold them to some semi truck guy for his trailer.

Went with the Toyo M144s. Much smoother than the GY G670s.

I bought mine through the FMCA Michelin Plan and paid $3770 out the door. Load Range J which I believe is 20 ply.

That's a decent price for Michelin's.

I've been paying $550 per tire re-re'd, spun balanced, for Toyo M144's, (same size as yours ), in Oregon.

Guys: PLEASE give the tire size when posting prices. Otherwise it is meaningless.

All great input! Much appreciated. Since we are full time now, we are in an area that I am not real familiar with, immoderate to seek quality work.
Only place I know that carried Toyos was Les Schwab , but not really happy with their service last time there.
Right now we are in Casa Grande, AZ.

John, I went with 2 new Toyo's M144 295R80 22.5" on my steer tires this summer. Added balance beads. Bought at Les Schwab and they are just fine. All in for $1107. I did my due diligence and the Toyo's are pretty well thought of, I wont hesitate to replace the rear Goodyear 670's with the Toyo's when it's time.

Steve

PS, thanks for the grout tips. Glad that job is complete, looks good though.

Why would you want to buy an more expensive tire that is going to weather crack again.
