Mixing Tire Brands

I am due for new tires on the front of my MH due to age and sidewall cracking. The rear tires are 5 years old and still look like new so I would like to run them at least another year or two.
I am considering purchasing Hercules H-902 to replace the Michelins. Has anyone had any experience with mixing the two brands?

Mixing different brands on different axles would be no problem at all. Mixing different brands with two of one brand on one side of the rear and two of another brand on the other side would be ok although probably not recommended. Mixing different brands in a dual pair would not be a good idea.

On or last coach we bought Toyo's for the front and Double Coins for the rear through Les Schwab. Almost 10K miles with no issues at all.

Just don't mix on same axle and you are ok. Lots of folks running differing in front than rear.

I often recommend to people to buy new front tires first and run the rears until they're due to reduce the huge cash outlay all at once. Before you buy the Hercules, take a look at Hankook's. They're a GREAT quality tire and smooth riding, especially in a steer tire position.

I was stuck buying Michelins for the steer and tag since they were the only ones that make 365/70's. On the drive I have 315/80's and could have gone with TOYO's but decided to pay the extra and got with Michelins all the way around.

Why? Both Hercules and Double Coin have been proven in OTR service for years now.

Or did you mean beware of all the major brand tires that are made in Asia?
