3500 miles now and happy with the Toyo M177 on 40 ft Itaska Ellipse, now that I have the tire pressure dialed in at 100 front and 95 rear.

SAILUN S637 225/70R19.5

These tires are 4 years old and have about 20k miles on them. They are in good shape and ride ok.

Anyone know how much 305/75/22.5 Goodyears are in the US? My sons friend is a manager of a Goodyear chain so I want to compare $$$$ before we take off.

I don't have experience with the Goodyears, but last week was talking tires at a dealer in Las Vegas while looking for valve stem extenders. They said they would not recommend the Goodyears due to cupping problems. Stay with my Toyo M177 or the new Michellin. I just wanted valve stem extenders anyway but always ask about tires. Good luck, lots of brand input on this forum. I had the Michellin XZE from 2008, then replaced with the new Michellin XZE2, then swapped out after about 30 miles. My take is the M177 are great at the right tire pressure. And from what I hear, the new Michellin also, and the same concerns for tire pressure. I can also say after more than 3600 miles now on the M177, the vintage of these more fuel efficient tires the mileage and rolling resistance is very apparent from mile #1. The difference between the Long Haul vs Regional tire is worth checking out for your travel needs.

Currently running Hercules on my Itasca. Great ride and handling at the correct tire pressure (important for ANY brand; weigh your coach corners and set pressure accordingly). I've run inexpensive tires on all my motorhomes for 27 years without issues; see no reason to spend extra when they are going to age out long before they wear out.

We have Firestone's. Made in USA, been great tires so far. About 1850 installed for all six. They replaced 9 year old GY G670's.

Along the same lines I am wondering about date codes on new purchases. On our previous coach we went with a Hankook AH-11's. We were very happy with them but after we got it home we noticed that the date code was close to a year old. We will put new tires on next year but when I called the same dealer and requested a date codes within a few months of our actual purchase date he said no can do. He stated that he orders from the manufacturer and he gets what they send. He said he worries when the date code is 2-3 years old. One year is not an issue.

So my question is do any of you get overly concerned with the date code or is my abnormal paranoia kicking in ?

Not sure what state you are in, but California law prevents the sale of tires more than a year old. To sell tires 2-3 years old unfortunately is too common.

Interesting. Have not heard that before about California law.
