I wouldn't, but I have heard about the Michelin tires and I just saw an email on an RV that had Michelin tires where both front tires blew, causing major damage the coach, and toad to the point they both were a total loss.

Newmar has many model starting with the Dutch Star along with Mountain Aire, London Aire, Essex and King Aire have the same tire size as Cornerstone. The Dutch Stars do need to be the 43 ft. model.
We were just at the FMCA rally in Indio Ca. and they were saying the 365 tires at this time aren't available. Because of the weight of all these coaches this the tires and axles needed.

hmmm.... I have always heard the opposite... that michelins were the safest..
lots of past post on other brands blowing out..

It is possible to have blow outs on any tire .. there is no 100% guarantee.. I still think michelin are the best money can buy...

If you could find out more information on that situation, I would be very interested in getting it. There HAS been a well reported concern with Goodyears tires which were standard on the Aspire model coach. The two upper tier models (Anthem and Cornerstone) have been running Michelins for many production years.

Now, I have heard of crashes of Aspires with Goodyears (we have a set of owners on here that have been through that), but I have not yet heard of any Michelin front tire blowouts and a double blowout seems hard for me to believe. I wonder if your information is getting jumbled or the person writing the email has just got the wrong information. I have had my coach 4-corner weighed twice now in 7 months and my fully-loaded-for-travel coach steer axle weights (and individual tire loads) are well within safety margins for these Michelin 365 tires.... they are no where close to overloaded.

If you can find further information, please bring it back to the forum.

If I had to replace tires on my Cornerstone, it would be with exactly the same tire . Drop microphone

It’s a mistake to draw any conclusions from 1 data point. Having said that if the story you’re referring to is factual I’d bet on owner abuse or road debris, not spontaneous failure of two tires at the same time.

Just a quick thought. The first half of the 2014 model year had the 315 size on the steer axle. Changed to 365 mid-yr. so i’d Want the second half 365 version; and you can’t put the 365s on the first hal coaches, I don’t think.

Standard on the Cornerstone is the 365 front with the 6 others at 315

Dave is right that the Cornerstone switched to the larger front tires (20k front) in the middle of the 2014 model year.

Might want to check the 2014 you are looking at to make sure on the tire size. Because you can't just "retro" the bigger tires for CS models that are running the 315 front.

Hope this helps.

Sue. Here is my two cents worth. Goodyears on front equal bad. Change to Michelin. As gat as the tears go there are several options. Go seek out commercial truck guy and ask his opinion on what is a good tire. I replaced my fronts and found out that my tire guy agreed that Michelin tires were best for the front but in his experience he had a few other tires that were equal to them for the rears for ~ half the cost. I trust this commercial tire guy and when it is time for me to replace my rears I will consult him for the best tire for the application. I trust the design engineers to tell me what size to buy. BTW, I love the classic Entegras. Herb
