What tires?

The OEM tires on my Winnebago Era have 2014 dates on the sidewalls. I figure that it is time for replacing these. I have been considering Michelin, Agilis. Consumer Reports, in their recent issue recommend Continental Terrain Contact H/T,
Any thoughts or recommendations appreciated.

I put the Michelins on the front of my 2016 Prism 24G last year - with about 6k miles on them so far, they are wearing well.

Continental’s web site says they don’t fit. This is a sprinter 3500, with 16” LT tires, right?

KanzKran. You are correct. I just found out the Continental does not come in my size. (215/85R16)
Thanks, dilemma solved.

Lots of posts from people happy with the Michelins - not cheap! As I recall, it was close to $450 for 2 out the door.

Puschased mine used with OEM Contis with 27K miles & fronts were wearing on outside tread, while rears seemed to have accelerated wear. Replaced all 6 with Michelin Agilis & have been very happy with ride & handling in rain.

I just bought a set of 6 Michelin Agilis Crossclimate tires last week (4/3/21) for my Winnie class B ERA 70 so no experience yet, but if they handle and wear anything like the Michelin LTX MS2's I have on my silverado dually and the missus' 2500 suburban they will be great!


My original tires were the Conti's but they were shot when I bought the rig August last year (2020) and it's a 2018 model with 30K miles on it. I noticed that the tires were very worn in the middle so maybe previous owner was running too much tire pressure.

I started a thread on that very topic a while back where my door post pressures turned out to be way over the minimum pressure for what the van actually weighs. Rode like it was on wooden wagon wheels, too. Muuuch better now at the cold pressure charted for 110% of each axle’s actual load. Doesn’t wander as much any more, either.

https://www.irv2.com/forums/f259/exc...es-503792.html

Getting an alignment next week too, as the outside edges are wearing. Seems to be a camber issue, but I don’t know if the local MB shop, who does a lot of MB RVs, can or will do anything about that.

Just bringing it up as it would be a shame for your new tires to wear like the original Continentals did.

Thanks for the tip! I did set the pressure as per the door post, 61psi and it did feel like it was wandering a bit on the interstate home.

I need to check out that thread link you posted, we are heading to Texas in a few weeks and 2400 miles round trip will take it's toll on my new tires. thanks!

I just completed 6k miles thru southwest, before I went I had an alignment done a local alignment shop known to hand trucks and RV. They did a great job and there was no wandering at all. The TOE was off from the factory. I have the original Continentals from Winnebago on chassis with now 13k miles.

This is the best choice.
