I don't know why you guys are trashing Goodyear. I have Goodyear G614's and they are great tires. We've put 18,000 miles on them this year including rough roads to Alaska. Even wear and still going strong.

I believe it's more like members expressing their opinions and experiences.

I too like my G670's. They are wearing evenly, give a smooth ride, no sidewall cracking. I don't like the price though. That's one reason why I'm buying Sailun truck tires next spring @ less than 1/2 price of Goodyear or Michelin. I've noted tire brands on semi-tractors for the last 2 years, and see more and more Sailun's on steer axle.

This discussion is about motor-home size tires which include 19.5 and 22.5 inch tires NOT trailer tires which are 16 inch tires.

I have the Goodyear G614 on my Pace Cargo Trailer and YES, they are great tires for that purpose. In fact they are built similarly to the 22.5 inch tires. BUT put a set of Goodyear G670 tires on a motor-home chassis especially on the steer axle and you won't be so happy with the outcome.

Our coach came with the Goodyear tires and I have had no issues although I just noticed the other day that the outer edges are worn on the steers. The tires are over 9 years old with about 43, 000 miles on em and I am seriously considering the bf Goodrich st 230 s. Providing of course that they dont give me a harsh ride.

You need to do some checking on that thought. One of the only manufacturer defects they can't weasel out of. Do need to present the tire carcass asap for claim. The Michelin dealer could not find any evidence of road hazard damage, believe me he tried. But the rusted steel cords were there for all to see. After three failures, even the tire shop said get rid of them. All less than three yrs old at time. I think weight load has a lot to do with XRV tires. The lighter rig folks don't seem to have the same problems as 40+ footer coach has. Just my thinking.

Lots of good tire data in the responses. I went with 22.5 inch Sumitomo in 14 PLY on our 2005 33 foot Monaco Monarch SE. Saliun served us well on a prior fifth wheel, but were not available at the MH dealership. Passed on Michlin and Goodyear for reasons already stated by others. Everyone has their experiences and budget.......good luck on your decision.

On my current coach, Monaco Windsor, I had Firestone tires installed and I think they are great.

On the previous coach, Fleetwood Expedition, had Toyos installed and had no issues whatsoever.

I have them on my 91 Foretravel, So Far no issues.price for 6 295 75R 22.5 was st 2k mounted and balanced. I have about 8k or so on them now.

Put Toyo's on my 2003 Adventurer, only issue, they stank after being driven on. It smelled so bad, thought I had a black water issue. Took two years of use before it cleared up.

Yokohama RY023 22.5" truck tires on my Expedition.

Had Michelin XRV 19.5" tires on my Hurricane.

Had Michelin XZE 19.5" tires on my RAM 3500 with a Lance 1050S camper.

No problems with them.

I know this is referring to MH & not TT or 5th wheels tires. I can tell you after I had my Goodyear rv 16" tires fail I moved to 17.5 Hankooks which are run on lowboy truck trailers. Never had another tire failure problem. Have been running them sense 2010.

Actually, some motorhomes did come with 16" tires. Had a '98 Adventurer with 16" tires and had 5 blowouts. 3 of them coming in one day and one while parked in a campground. That era F53 chassis with 16's was under other brands as well. Some people with the same size tire say they have had no issues with the 16" tire, but I sure as heck did.
