Tire recommendation

I don't need them now, but was looking at tires for my coach, size is 245/70R19.5. I know Michelin is highly touted and I had good results with Goodyear on my old class c. I have also had good results with 'house' brand tires from Discount Tire on my daily use pick up. What do most people use and why?

Lots of opinions will soon flow your direction but the one and most important part of this choice is...do not shop by price! Find the tires that you feel will best support your needs and driving posture and pay the price.

Everyone has an opinion... Another consideration when you are buying is, will I be able to find a replacement if needed when traveling? My last coach had 19.5 Goodyear tires. When it was almost time to replace them, I had two separate blow outs in two states. Both times, my road service accessed them easily to replace them. For that reason, I'll stick with Mich or GYr. JMHO.

Asking for tire recommendations is like asking people to recommend a brand of beer. BTW, I like Michelin and Corona.

Check and see if a Toyo HT is available in your size.

I have arranged for Toyo M154's to be installed tomorrow. Same 245/70R/19.5 size as you are inquiring about-- I'll let you know how it goes. Our ACE came with Goodyear's but I've noticed more wear than I expected. Always used Michelin tires in the past, but have noticed they tended to sidewall crack more than others. Multiple recommendations and good reviews led me to choose Toyo this time. Less expensive than Michelin even with the FMCA discount. We will see.
