New Tires

Tires on our 2003 National Dolphin 6355LX needed to be replaced.

Fronts were 10 years old and the backs were 7.

After much research, we went with the Sumotomo ST718 tires. Noticed a huge difference right away when I hit the Garden State Parkway. Quieter, smoother ride.

6 tires, balanced and mounted, all taxes and disposal fees, $2309.50.

You got a deal!


We have the same tires on our DP Class A and the only thing that made it even better was replacing the steel wheels for aluminum and using balance beads.

What size did you go with. I thought the 6355LX came with 235/80/22.5 Michelin XRV tires. Isn't Michelin the only company that makes that size?

It did come with those tires but doing some research I found out that they are treated as "summer tires" not all season

The new tires are 245-75-22.5. almost identical.

Tiffin Breeze Tire Replacement

I have a 2015 Tiffin Breeze with MICHELIN 265/70r19.5 tires. The two front steer tires are coming up on six years old and show some minor cracking on the sidewalls. I am thinking about replacing them with two Toyo steer tires but I am lost in trying to figure out what model (?) I need to replace them with. The options seem to be G or H but I have no idea what that means. There seem to be several available options in this size, but I do not know the difference between them. The tires on the rear are not showing this cracking and I am going to wait a while before replacing them. Any help would be appreciated.
