Many will argue the cheap versus expensive issue.
Nobody will argue that Michelin makes very good quality

As to Hercules, if you are comfortable putting your
life on the line with Made In China tirebombs, go ahead.

Lots of opinions for sure...........
This cause Michelins never blow out.

No, its a gasser, and this thing has 16 inch rims! Same size rims as my f150! I was thinking twice what it costs to put new tires on my truck!

Facts and details would help people offer informed replies rather than simple guesses.

Things such as
Current size, including type (ST or LT or truck) and Load Range (ply rating)
Your measured actual load on each end of each axle.
Size, Load Range and inflation as shown on the vehicle certification label.

would be helpful.

I just went through this, with exactly the same size. Michelin XPS RIB held up for me where the Yokohama blew out (both fronts the same day). The Michelins were a nuclear assault on my wallet, but selfishly speaking I consider my life to be worth more than $3k. <shrug>

Yikes! A 36' MH with a slide and 16" tires??? That seems awful small, but you should know what size tires you have. I have Hankooks on my truck and they are working well.

We switched to Toyo and have been very happy. Recommended by3 different tire dealers, one of them doesn't even sell Toyos but told us just to ship them to him. Worked out fine. Much better ride.

I have heard of too many stories about Michelin cracking. A lot of people are very happy with the Hankooks also.

I think 16" tires are more likely on a '98 Tropi-cal, and $2300 would be a typical (but not great) price for 8 of them, e.g. at Camping World or other dealership prices.

While price is important there are other factors to take into account, good luck with your choice.

I would go with the Michelin Ribs if they have the weight capacity you need. They are bulletproof but more expensive.
