Sumitomo vs Toyo

Needing to replace my 245x75x22.5 tires. May sell the coach within the next year or two. Got a great price from Big O in AZ but Toyo’s are about $350 more....

Check Simple Tire. They have some great prices on large tires.

You should also check the FMCA tire program.

I'm a "fan" of both brands and have purchased Toyo for mothorhome use twice. I also like Sumitomo (and Falken, a subsidiary of Sumitomo, and also now Dunlop) and have purchased multiple sets of tires from Sumitomo/Falken for vehicles I've owned throughout the years.

I'd be tempted to go with Sumitomo. Plus, most of their commercial truck tires are now made in the U.S. at the old Goodyear plant in Tonowanda NY outside of Buffalo. I'm not sure if the ones you're looking at are manufactured at that plant but the last I read, they were slowly moving most of the manufacturing of their commercial truck tires there.

I have purchased Toyo the last two times, never had an issue with them, they aged out both times.

I have both on my coach... Toyo on the front, Sumitomos on the rear. I only go 5 years on my steers and longer on the duals, hence the mismatch. Wanted to try the Toyos based on good reviews, but can't say I notice a huge difference. Both are good. Could be the Toyo are less likely to follow the ruts, but I had alignment done at the same time so I can't be sure which was responsible for the improvement.

I am using a set of Sumitomo 12R22.5, they are good tires. Installed in 2015, about 6 years now no checking, looks like new.

I bought a set of 6 Sumitomo ST719 last Sept. Took off my 8 year old Michelin XZA which had served me well. Through the fall we travelled about 3K miles, and I am quite pleased with the 719s. Smooth, pretty quiet. Track well. Got a great price at a local truck tire shop in a little Texas town near our volunteer post. $2200 mounted, bead balanced, out the door.

I bought a new set of Sumitomo 275/70R/22.5, 719 tires last year. I did so after much research. So far I am pleased.

I just got a price of $255 per tire for the Sumitomo 719 in size 245/75x22.5 from a local shop. They were $290 on the internet, so shop around at local business

$2200 out the door with bead balancing from Big O in Yuma AZ...Sumitomo’s....will have installed next week. Thanks for the feedback everyone.

Now just need to confirm sir pressures as I ran 90 all around with my Toyo’s based on axle weights and Toyo recommendations
