First go around on having to buy tires. I have a F53 22k chassis. Michelin 22.5. 235x80r. Any suggestions on any other good quality brands? Mine have 22k miles and are already showing cracks. But are 1113 on the manufacture date. 6+ years old. How about these online tires for rv,s. guys? I’m doing the local shops also.
Thanks

Before everyone starts chanting "China Bombs!! China Bombs!!"......

I have a very good friend who runs the family business, a high-end (food & pharmaceuticals only so VERY image focused) trucking business and has been very impressed with Double Coin brand tires.

They've been around a long time and have proven to be a pretty high quality tire. Certainly a VERY affordable choice too.

When checking on tires for our class A, I contacted a seller online about the code date, he said his came from a wharehouse and could be 2 to 3 years old. So you never know till they show up. I have Hankook and look good but made in 2013.

On line check Simpletire.com.

As to the brand, my opinion is since you already own Michelins anything you choose should be an upgrade. [emoticon]

I think you'll also find the 235/80-22.5 is a Michelin only size. If you check around you'll find many have switched to a different but similar size with good results.

There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

For as many tire manufacturers that are out there, you will get that many opinions. Michelin, Goodyear, Toyo, Sumitomo, Bridgestone, Double Coin, Hankook....all have their supporters and all have their opponents. I've had bad luck with 2 Goodyear tires, but still have Goodyears on my rig. Yes, you will pay more for certain brands over others. Yes, certain brands will ride and wear differently due to the chemical makeup of the rubber. Some tout that they are RV tires while some call themselves truck tires. As long as they are in the right load range for your rig, and are inflated according to the manufacturer's recommendations according to the weight of the rig, and as long as they are maintained properly....AND, unless you're going to be putting a LOT of miles on them over the highways (most RVers don't).....they are ALL most likely going to give you good service over their lifetime. So, shop around for acceptable pricing and a good shop to mount them....and go have fun camping!!!

OK, let the flaming start--I have 4 (China Bombs) Salin tires on the rear that are in their 9th year and look good as new. Have not had to add air in them in the last 4 years. Best tires I've ever had.
