I recently put on a set of Sumitomo tires out the door for $300 each. So far they seem to drive better and ride better than the stock Goodyear tires. Online reviews from people that have had them longer than me are great, some of the best that I have ever seen.

I'm not a Michelin fan. I'd buy just about any name brand first.

Just yesterday I had to change a tire on my daughters car - got a nail in a bad spot. While the nail wasn't a Michelin issue the sidewall cracking sure was.

Honestly, in my entire life I've owned exactly one set of Michelins I'd say gave us excellent service. I've had at least 10 sets I can think of that didn't.

We're currently riding on Bridgestones, 100% happy.


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

Michelin's XRV tires gave a lot of problems. Michelin XZE & XZA series of truck tires give excellent service. I've had Michelin XPS 16" tires on my MH for 19 years and no cracks. Before I get beat up on the 7 year issue, I'm on my 3rd set.

I put Hankooks on my coach to replace my Goodyears and they have been great. I won't hesitate to buy another set.

You may pay a little more but you will never be sorry you bought Michelin.
Shop around.

I just replaced my Michelins XZA3 with X Line Energy Z, but I've been plenty disappointed in Michelin before. The XZA3s that came off were severely cracked to the point I didn't want to run them any more after 7 years even though Michelin said they were fine. There are many suitable alternatives but you do have to alter tire size.

Also, Shop price before jumping in with FMCA discounts - Mine were cheaper retail than FMCA discounted, and once you bring up FMCA you are stuck with FMCA pricing per the agreements.
