Toyo tires to Mechelin

I have a 1994 Monaco Dynasty, bought new. It now has 156000 miles on it. It is a 32' with the 230hp Cummins, 3069 six speed Allison. The wheels are 19 1/2 Alcoa. It came with Bridgestones, I then replaced with Toyos. I just now replaced with Michelin. My problem is now that I have the Michelin tires on the RV I am fighting the wandering, and tracking. The other brands I did not have this problem. It track straight, and did not wander. I took it in and had the front end relined. I went to dealer and they said the put max air in tire, which is 120 psi. I am at a loss what to do next. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I know it is the tires because it was fine before I replace with Mechelin. They are a much softer ride, but sure hope I did not make a mistake with this tire. Thanks in advance, Larry

The only thing I noticed out of the norm, is MAX psi, weigh it, and put the proper amount of pressure in the tire.

Michelins are a little squirrelly till they break in proper air and run them you'll get used to them

I was talked into Toyo tires all around for our previous coach. I then had to fight the wandering, and tracking. Went back to the tire dealer, complained. He gave me 100% credit on the front Toyos and replaced them with Bridgestones. Problem solved.
