Tire Replacement

My current coach has Michelin tires (315.22.5.80). I noticed that FMCA is now partnered with Continental for their tire program as well as Michelin.
Opinions / Recommendations??

TIA. - Steve

First thing to check is does Continental make the 315/80 22.5's or an equivalent?

May have to look at the Conti Coach HA3 next time I'm replacing steers. 315/80's rated for a 8 1/4" rim.

Had Continental HA3s installed on the steers yesterday by Snider Tires. What a great experience! The have serviced the FMCA Michlen program for years I was their first Conti customer. It required a couple of extra phone calls by them to their head office to square away account numbers but it was painless to me. Boy I am comfortable in highly recommending Snider Tire Services to anyone.
Aside from the tire charge which is quoted by FMCA, Snider charged me $95 to dismount, mount and install Tyron Bands(which I already purchased). As I am using Centronix (so?) Auto balancers the rep at Snider (Jimmy) suggested that I did not need to balance.

Didn't drive very far after, maybe 30 miles, but the ride was great.

Which location did your work? When were the tires made?
Thanks for the positive report.

I had Michelins installed at Snider in March. They were great to work with and Jimmy took good care of us and made it easy. I highly recommend them.

The facility I visited was in Houston but the have operations all over the country https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sour...ds616V67x8YISA

The place here in Houston must have had $5million in tire inventory, the place is huge!
