Looking for new RV tires

I started looking for tires on the FMCA discount program. I was looking for Michelin tires, but open to most any major brand. I after checking several other sites I can across a website called Motorhome tires which carries several brands. Motorhome tires prices include shipping and installation and are a little better than FMCA. They advertise to install your tires at any location including your driveway and its included in there pricing. Anyone every dealt with MotorHome tires? No ties or connections to either company.

Never heard of motorhome tires but due check out Toyo and Yokahama as alternatives to Mitchelin.

I have Toyo M-154 now and had Sumitomo 718 in past. I would recommend either of those.

Checked "Motorhome Tires" on Google and they came up. Looks like they sell through a bunch of commercial tire dealers. Looked interesting, but they do not sell the 19.5in tires that I need.

I had Michelin tire and at 5 years they where dry rotted and cracked worse then any tires I have ever seen. That was with parking the RV in a storage shed. I have had 10 and 25 year old tires that looked new compared to these. I replaced them with Toyo M154s. Hundreds less a tire and wow do the handle amazing. I went from 2 hands on the wheel with out wind, trying to keep it straight to 1 hand in cross winds.

Some other discount sources that can arrange local installation include: Simpletires.com, rvtires.com, and tires-easy.com


There have been multiple reports of success with those companies - a search here will find them.

Mine is a lot more stable with the Toyos too, but I had an alignment done at the same time as the new tires and wasn't sure whether it was the tires or the alignment.

I didn't have an alignment done just the tires. 2 friend also went with Toyos and loved how their rigs handed. It was a big reason I went with Toyo's.

Thanks for the replies. I think I going to go with 2 or 4 of the Toyo 305/70/r22.5 to start with. I will get an all wheel alignment prior to installing new tires. This way I can split the cost over two years

I'd buy almost anything other than Good Years or Michilens. Way over priced and now hearing too many problems with them.
