I have 5500 miles on new Toyo's. Have no complaints so far, and supposed to be made in America.

There are only 3 brands I would even consider now, knowing I will never wear out a tire, only time it out. A set of 6 Hankook AH-12 tires like we have, will run you about $2700 out the door. The other two are the Sumitomo and the Kumho. When the truck tire dealer shows me his personal ¾ million dollar coach with Hankook tires on it and says they are the best on the market, for the money, that's good enough for me.

We went with the hankook. so far so good. seems the ride is a lot softer. toyo is also a good one. the Japanese or Korean tires are fine and price is reasonable.

B F Goodrich per the recommendation of Pat at Pro Tires in Denton TX. We have a Country Coach Allure. Pat worked on Country Coach and Prevost Class A's. We had Toyos and did not like them.
B F Goodrich is owned by Michelin, made in America and we are very pleased after 10,000 miles. Cheaper price than Michelins but not cheap. My DH is a picky "tire guy" from way back.

I run the same size tire and have had toyo's (no longer available in that size), michelin, and continental. All of the tires have worked fine for me, but unless you put a lot of miles on your coach, it's difficult for me to justify michelin, which is why I am using continental now. Made in USA, and I like to keep as much of my $s here in country as I can.
