Goodyear, Michelin, B.F. Goodrich - which brand is best

Looking to replace way too old Toros on my 1997 CC Intrigue. Good handling, durability and not prone to cracking from environmental exposure would be desirable. Size is 22.5. Thanks for any recommendations.

First off, welcome to the forum! Here you will learn answers to questions you didn't even know you had!

Do a search for "tires" on the forum and you will find plenty of discussions and lord of opinions. Many new class A's come with Michelin's that are a unique size that only they make. I just purchased 6 new Toyo's for my MH as the Michelin's had side wall cracks. Others will direct you to their favorite brand. I look for a reasonably priced tire with good reviews not made in China.

Good luck in your search!

Goodrich is a Michelin brand too. In the larger sizes for motorhomes, the Goodrich is the same as a Michelin model of the same type, but nearly always substantially cheaper (or discounted).

I wouldn't choose any of those brands you named. Why not get new Toyo's? Or Sumitomo or Cooper? Or any of a dozen excellent brands?

I couldn't be happier with our Toyo tires. By not buying Michelin replacements, I saved over $300/tire. Any of the brands on the market will serve you well.

Michelin would be last choice, my last set cracked...replaced them with Toyos. Doing fine, for a lot less money.

Is your coach in the serial number range where CC did a recall to install larger tires? Did you get the recall done to get the larger tires?

I don't remember all the details but if you have the 22.5 wheels, you are ok. I got good service from Toyo, went to Goodyear (they sucked) and now run the Michelin. I have had zero cracks on them to date. I drive 10-15K miles a year and I believe that has something to do with them not crackiing

I have two Bridgestones, they are excellent tires, soft rubber with no cracks look like new after 10 years. I put them in rear and will replace them this summer when we are in Oregon.

The other tires on our coach are Sumitomo's, they are good too, no cracks, quality-wise they might be in line with Toyo's.

Since I replace the steers and the rears on different schedules, I have a mixture of Toyo on the front and Sumitomo on the rear. Though both have served me well, I give the edge to Toyo as they seem to ride a little better and are less prone to tramline. I previously had Sumitomo all around but will be all Toyo by summer of next year.
