Toyo 144 tires

Well I tried to get one more trip out of my 2014 MH tires but blew out my tag tire at 64000. miles.
295/80/22.5 tires have a nice weight cushion.

Looking at Toyo 144 tires on the 6 rear tires. 295/80/ since my steers were replaced couple years ago

Anybody have any experience with them?

Thanks
Take care
Pointrow

I purchased a full set after my Michelin’s began breaking down on the sidewalls in the front. No way was I going to replace with Michelin after only lasting 5 years and 54k miles. Replaced with M144’s and very happy after putting 8k miles on them. Soft ride quiet ride, stiff sidewalls at a fraction of the cost compared to Michelin’s. Highly recommend.

My coach came with Good Year. Since then, I've had Bridgestone, Michelin, Yokohama and currently have the Toyo's. Except for the goodyears, all were good, but I prefer Toyo's by far.

My new to me then ten year old rig with eleven year old GoodYear tires, by manufacturing date code, were replaced with Toyo tires. They were recommended by a friend who ran his first set for ten years! Only a trip across the country made him get a new set of Toyo tires.

The problem with old tires is that a nail or screw can go into the tire and not go past the steal belt. Then fall out. The first water that gets in the opening will start the rust. That will debond the rubber from the metal. Over time of several years the tread will fly off. So a limit of years is set for tires for safety. Ozone damage can be protected against, but not hidden rust or impact damage.

You will like the M144's if you can find them. We replaced eight 295/80/22.5 Michelins three years ago for $3620 out the door. Prices have come up since then. I sold the M's to a trucker for a seasonal trailer. My wife claimed the ride was better and the mpg picked up slightly. 30,000 carefree miles so far. In 2 years and another 20,000 miles, I will replace them while I can still sell them for $100/tire. I'm sure I could run them for 7-8 years, but with the sale of the takeoffs, new tires every 5 years gives piece of mind in our travels.

Same here, replaced six cracked Michelins with six Toyo 144s on the rear. Doing fine.

Where in NE Florida did you buy them? I am currently looking for that size and quantity, but stock is difficult to find.

I considered the 144 but decided on the 177 because of the weight ratings and quality of the tire

Put #s of your front and rear tires in compare chart , From what I have read here , not safe to go over 2% maybe 3% max up or down in circumference at rear.
