Have you tried Les Schwab? The one in Rohnert Park found me 4 in my size when everyone else said none could be found. Also check out Falken at Les Schwab, if the have them in your size.

Hercules 14 ply g rated tires those are the ones that we ended up with when our China bombs blow up on the road near Texarkana so far they've been great.

Try Bridgestones. I just put them on, they got them within days and they were just a few weeks old.

I have 7000 miles, and 13 months on a set of Hercules Strong Guard HRAs and I really like them. Much quieter and smoother than the Yokohamas they replaced.

We had Hercules (now discontinued H802? tires) on our coach until switching to Sumitomo ST719s early this year, and I can say the Sumitomos are a big improvement, at one point on our last trip I found myself doing more than 10+ mph over the speed limit on fairly smooth road without intending to just because they ride that much better.

Not sure what size you need but Simple Tire has some of the larger Toyos in stock. That's what we went with and like them (not from Simple Tire however).

You didn't mention the size you want, but surely there are brands other than Hercules & Milestar? Brands that are well-known and well-regarded. Bridgestone, Firestone, Yokohama, Hankook, Goodrich, General, Continental, etc. Not to mention the pricey Michelins & Goodyears.


I've seen satisfied owner reports on Hercules but never owned any myself.

Check out Kumho KRS02. We put them on our bus conversion and they were not only quiet and comfortable, but very reasonably priced. In my opinion they were better than the timed-out Micheleins they replaced.

I suggest looking for Goodyear RV models....in my recent experience...Michelins and Toyos are completely sold out with no date for resupply and Sumitomo tires are now difficult to get. I've seen some folks say Bridgestones work well on heavy coaches.

In our case we special ordered Michelin XZUS2's only to find out that tire was made for slow moving city buses and trash trucks...Couldnt find ANY shop that would install those on our coach due to the speed limitation (65mph) on the XZUS2s.

The dealer we were working with had some Goodyear RV G760s (all 8 in fact). We had those installed and are rolling again. Consequently, I noticed EVERY OTR truck I saw at TA when we gassed up this evening had at least Goodyear front steer tires minimum....

YMMV

I'll buy almost anything but Goodyear or Michelin. I've got 2 Cross Winds made in Thailand that are better, lasting longer, more round, balanced real nice with small weights and hundreds each cheaper.

My wife happened to call Jeremiah’s Tire while we were in Salt Lake City and he had 4 brand new Toyo tires. She drove out there and bought them and they are in the back of the truck as we head back to California.
