I did some tire shopping this week I thought I would share the price quotes I received.

Goodyear Dealer

Goodyear G670RV
245/70R 19.5 Load Range G $325 ea. + M, B, I = $2,390.28

Toyo M143
245/70R 19.5 Load Range G $247.99 ea. + M, B, I = $1,916.14


Independent Dealers

Michelin XZE
245/70R 19.5 Load Range F $ $303.47 + M, B, I = $2,012.75

Bridgestone R250
(1) 245/70R 19.5 Load Range F $283.72 ea. + M, B, I = $1,887.14
(2) 245/70R 19.5 Load Range G $321.10 ea. + M, B, I = $2,318.79

Firestone FS560
245/70R 19.5 Load Range G $257.76 ea. + M, B, I = $1,624.56

Kumho KH6932
245/70R 19.5 Load Range G $267.95 ea. + M, B, I = $1,965.11


All but one dealer said they would balance the tires except one, who recommended balancing beads called CounterAct.

I have a Ford chassis MH, that rides and handles fairly well, so I at this point, I am inclined to go with the G670's in hopes I won't screw up the ride and handling. With the announced $50 per tire rebate they a little more price competitive with the others.

I am also looking hard at both the Bridgestone R250's and the Toyo's. Both look like very good tires. Does anyone have any experience with either tire?

I have load range F G670's on the coach now, and Winnebago spec's running at 80 PSI. Can the load range G 670's be run at 80 PSI ? I know, weight the coach, and I will, but feel the need to ask the question BEFORE I agree to move from an F to a G range tire.

Hummm....seems like this post is in the wrong area. I'm sure a moderator will move it to the proper area.

You are going to g rated due to a discount? Check the rating on your wheels and the book for the weight on gs. You may be able to increase the pressure if necessary.

YoBubba, we have the Bridgestone R250F series load range "G" on our coach (F53 Chassis) and highly satisfied with them. Must admit I'm biased toward the Bridgestones. However I've heard good reports on Toyo's as well.

Don't think you'll go wrong with either brand.

Not sure but think if you go from F to G your PSI rating goes up...

You should be using F not G load range.

I would weigh the coach first, no need to go the "G" if you don't need too.
I replaced with "F"(original)did not want to make it ride any harder. I do wish I had put the steel stems on when they were changed.

I justy put G rated on my moho and they carry a max 110 pds of air. They are Continental 225/70r/19.5. They are balanced, knee deep in rubber, ride very well, and if you desire, they are regroovable. Just FYI.

The G rated will have a higher load rating and possibly a harder ride!
