I look at it this way; your tires are the only thing keeping your coach going down the road. How much did you pay for you MH and how much would it cost to replace it or worse if a tire blows. I want the best tires on my MH and buying quality Michelin tires is a small price to pay for the safety of all on board my MH. So do you really trust a Chinese tire? Not me thank you!
Why does this always come up? Can you prove that your Michelins are a better quality tire? Michelin is a name brand, with all the marketing that comes with that. They've had they're issues, as a quick search here will show.
2 replies up, you heard from a michelin dealer that won't run them on his coach.
Just sayin' you may want to dig into the quality issue a bit, and figure out how you determine quality. If it's because it's made in the USA, that's not the right answer, there's junk here too.

My Michelin dealer said the all the Michelin sales hype was just that,"HYPE". He will not run Michelin tires on his ¾ million dollar coach and recommended that I not put them on our coach. He runs Hankook tires on his and sold me on the Hankook AH-12 tire, at about 60% the cheapest price I could find for Michelin.....2 years and 16K miles and I am very happy with his recommendation.
Yep, Michelin dealer told me the same thing and recommended the Hankook AH12 as a much better alternative.
