After reading articles about it for years, I made a discovery as to why some have the issue and some don't. If you go back and read complaints about rivering, 90% of those are made by Monaco brand owners. Apparently, the Roadmaster chassis with their big floating "H" designed front end, did not play well with the Goodyear tires.
So......whatever you buy, don't buy Goodyears for the front of a Monaco coach with the Roadmaster chassis. After two pairs of Goodyears (got 20K each before they had issues) on my Diplomat, I went with the Hankook AH12 tires. I really like the quality of Hankooks and recently put them on a Honda CRV to improve the rough ride and reduce tire noise. Their 22.5 tires are about half the price of Michellin or Goodyear.
The problem with the Hankooks......they come in limited sizes. You might have to go with Michellin or look at something like the Toyos.
Thanks Don for the input. My coach has the Roadmaster chassis so its a no deal on the Goodyear for sure. Will look into the Hankooks and Bridgestone. Need to find the 295/80R22.5 as that is what my current tires are.
Now to go shopping.
