Yet Another Tire Thread!

Yes I know the horse is dead but...

Looking to replace my Michelin 275/70r 22.5 tires on my 06 Kountry Star DP. I've read countless posts about how most people are going with the Toyos. I was originally going to go with Michelin replacements through the FMCA tire program at a substantial discount, even at that they are pricey. They offer Continentals as well, not that much cheaper. I'm not looking to cheap out, but considering that I usually upgrade my motorhome every 4 or 5 years (on my 4th year with this motorhome) I didn't think either brand was worth the expense. So I keep reading about how Toyos are good and much cheaper. I called a so called reputable commercial tire shop near me and was told that the Toyos are not really a good choice for an RV, and I should go with the Michelins, which is an RV tire. Of course, more money, more profit. My question is that I was looking at the Toyo M32OZ which is reasonably priced (Walmart $339). Wondering if anyone has any input on what model Toyo I should use, and or where to get them. Thanks

I seem to remember that FMCA now offers Hankook tires? I've heard lots of good reports on them!

That is a on/off road type tire and will be unbelievably noisy on paved highways. What you need is a Toyo M170 295/75 22.5 LRH tire. It's virtually the same size tire as you have now and will be as quiet as your present tires.

I am running Toyo M177's on mine. I purchased them from tires direct and I am happy with them. I called to ask/verify datecodes before completing the purchase. So long as the tires you are getting are rated to carry the necessary loads, I don't see what the salesmans issue with them is.



If you are going to sell it next year, you should consider running the tires it has now instead of replacing?

I would love to wait, but I need tires like yesterday!

Just replaced my 22.5 tires. Had Toyo’s which weee great but went with Sumitomo’s this time which are made in Japan and were about $400 less than Toyo’s

I replaced my Goodyear G670, 275/70R22.5 LR G tires with the same size Sailun G637 LR H tires in 2019. The final bill for all the usual work + balancing and all taxes was $1,280 for 6 tires.
Sailun tire prices have increased like all others since then, they are still less than well-known brands and usually found at Cooper tire dealers. Construction reads like the same way Michelin tires are constructed. They are not made in China. The commercial truck tire plant was moved to VietNam in 2017.

I've had good luck with both Sumitomo 718 and Toyo M154. Admittedly, I'm new to Toyo so can't comment long term on them, but they ride and handle fine.
