Looking for anyone who has experience with Double Coin tires and what your thoughts are. Don't wish to be insulting but not looking for "opinions" but actual and factual information.
Thanks for any help.

Ray,
I got the same BS from the puritans, when I first started talking Hankook tires for my RV. Now, many have decided to try them and found out they are a good choice at a fair price. Talk to the truckers you see about the Double Coin, as their communication lines are very good and they know what works and which have trouble, that's what I did. I for one will NOT pay the extra for tires that are no better than the ones that the truckers run. When I put the Hankook on, my ride improved and the coach handling also improved.

I got four Double Coins from Les Schwab a couple years back. They are wearing fine, no cracks and no noise. 19.5 tires
I would not hesitate on buying more.

I've been running a set of 4 on the rear with no problem for the last year. I got the fronts about 6 months earlier and those were the last pair of Coopers available in my size.

Yes, an ad from a law firm. blackrobe is looking for information.
I just gave him the info. He can do with it what he wants.
I'm not big on lawyers either but, maybe they have some info that will be helpful to blackrobe.

Double Coin is the premier truck tire brand coming out of China right now. One of their lines was just added to the EPA's energy efficiency list and is the only Chinese manufacturer to have done so. Up until recently they were part of a chinese tire manufacturer holding group with who else but Michelin. That doesn't mean they shared technologies, just that they had no problem being associated with Double Coin's name.

Double Coin is taking a bigger share of the US market so expect to see them at more places. They are a shelf item at Love's truck stops as well.

Personally, had Michelin not adjusted the XRV tires on my MH, I would be running Double Coins.

Get past that "C" word and you got it made.

Good luck.

I had Double Coin front-runners on one of my dumptruck several years ago. No problems, good tire. I'd buy them for my camper if thats what looked to be best at the time.
