Goodyear vs. Toyo tires

We have a 2015 Forest River Legacy Diesel Pusher. The original tires are Goodyear 255/70R22.5--G670 Unisteel. I have no problems with it besides the age. No apparent sidewall cracking. We only have about 21,000 miles on the RV. Has anyone run these tires for a longer period. Also does anyone know much about Toyo tires. We have heard they are quite a bit less dollars. But-are they any good?

We are running Toyo and have not had any problems. I had them on pervious MH also and ran good. I had two problems with Goodyear on a truck and would not by them again for anything i own but that is me. I would buy Toyo again.

I put Toyo tires on my prior Newmar and plan to put them on my current Tiffin Phaeton. Spoke to a tire dealer the other day and he told me they have found the Toyos take a lot less weight to balance then Michelin’s. I have had excellent success with Toyos on my coach and my performance cars.

I replaced my old Michelin’s with Toyo’s. I like them, and a lot cheaper too.

Why limit yourself to Toyo's? There are several quality tires available. Do some research and decide what is best for you.

My coach had OEM G670's. One front tire failed early (blistered sidewall) so I replaced that pair at about 4.5 years, but the rest ran 7 years. I replaced with Continentals on the back and Toyos on the front.

I wouldn't have a G670 up my shorts even if I had room for a sawmill. I went from a set of aged out Toyos to the G670. The tires rivered and had cracked sidewalls.If I had to choose between those two brands, I'd go back to the Toyo. Only thing about the Toyo, they seem to stink for a couple thousand miles. I consider them a good tire but there are others out there just as good or better. Consider Hankook, Continental, Ohtsu

I've heard the Toyo "stink" comment before but I haven't experienced it with mine. I wonder if it applies to some particular model of tire that has a unique rubber compound? I think mine were the M144, designed for the regional/urban application rather than long haul or off-road.


The GY G670 is known for river wear, but I don't think it is a cause for despair. It's more an visual oddity than a problem; I've yet to see/hear of a case where a tire failed prematurely because of rivering. Tire engineers don't consider it a problem that requires any action. You should get the full years or miles of service regardless.

We have Toyo's on ours since spring. Took about 750 miles for the stink to dissipate. But they're great tires otherwise. Rather strange smell too, kind of like rubber and charcoal mixed with the smell of overheated brakes!!

Take a look at Yokohama. Have had mine now for 2 years. Can’t tell the difference from the old Mitchelin tires I replaced.

Anyone using the Hercules tires on your big rigs? We’ve had the 16” ones for 7 years now (replaced the front ones before we left) and just completed a 4000+ mile trip from Spokane to Melbourne Beach and rode perfectly. I like ‘em.

Toyo's have the most tread for the tire sizes. When I replace my Nexen tires on my 2020 RAM 3500 dually I am planning on Toyo's. I an hoping for at least 50k on the stickers.

I have several friends who tow work trailers and like the Toyo's on 3500 and 5500 trucks.
