This post will open up a lot of opinions ... Michelin are good tires, but more expensive than most other brands. I just put Toyo on my rear tires because I couldn't find Michelin 285/80R 22.5 readily anyplace near me. Toyo were significantly cheaper than Michelin (even with the FMCA discount). Hoping that I'm not disappointed in my decision. Over the years, I have used Michelin, Bridgestone, Goodyear, and Hankook.....my personal preference is Michelin, followed by Bridgestone. I didn't care for the Goodyear or the Hankook tires. My purchase decisions are predicated by my safety and the ride quality. I'm not driven by price as my deciding factor. Others are price driven in their decision. Expect many different opinions on this subject. A lot has been said about tires in this forum in many different threads.

Do a search. This topic has been beat to death. There are dozens of tire related threads with just as many opinions. Every brand will have owners who are happy with what they have.

Based on the recommendations of a friend who runs a local trucking company, I now have Sumitomo tires, as do many others on this board. They are less expensive than many and have a good reputation.

What I don't know is how they compare in ride quality to other choices.

I think most brands of tires will do the job if they have the correct load rating and proper inflation for the load. My motorhome came with Goodyears 670's and at the 7 year mark I replaced them with Hankooks. At 30,00 miles one of the Goodyear were starting to river. Had the Hankooks for 3 years and so far so good. But the jury is out until the 7 years mark.

Gus, here is a link to what I did almost 4 years ago. I changed my aged out tires from Michelin and also changed from the 235 size. I am pleased with my decision to get those proprietary Michelin 235s off my rig. All the best.

You might also consider this so you don't have to type your MH info every time

Put your MH information into your signature
Take a couple of minutes to fill out your signature with information about your motorhome (MH)This will really help in all future posts too.
You do this by:
1) Going to the top of this page and click the top left tab named “User CP”
2) Look at the menu on the left and scroll down to “Settings & Options” and click “Edit Signature”
3) In that text box type all the information about your MH. Year, model, length, mileage, any aftermarket extras installed and so on.
