I had the Toyo M-55 on a truck, and they were great.

I have had very good luck with Toyo tires. Way better longevity than Michelins.

I ran Toyo M 55 on my Dodge dually hauling a heavy TC. Absolutely loved them. I would love to replace the Michelins on my C with them but Les Schwab is getting away from Toyo. [emoticon]

LS is now using their own branded tires, Open Country, which is not made in the USA or Japan like Toyo. Somewhere in Asia I would expect. But I would not be afraid to use them being backed by the LS phenominal warranty.

Toyo makes a great tire.
They have a large plant in White Georgia.

^ That's a good choice. Good quality tires.
However with Toyo being a "premium" type brand, like Michelin, Goodyear etc, how on earth could 6 tires be $150/ea cheaper between 2 presumably comparable tires?
Standard class c tire and rim size, most are around $200/ea giver take with the most expensive being $250/ea.
This does not make sense and either someone was trying to overcharge you ALOT for the Michiblows or ??
You're sure you got load range E tires and not P or XL rated tires in the Toyos? That is worth about $100/tire price difference.

I am sitting on a Goodyear problem, near Durant, OK. Bought 7 Goodyear SR-A tires for my 31 ft class C and have had not one but TWO of them bubble out the sidewall - one tire with less than 4,000 miles and another with less than 900 miles (the spare)!!! I need advice on replacing these awful tires right now.

^ Presuming they're new ish tires? Have you been denied warranty by GY? Doubt they wouldn't cover it if the spare is bad too.
You didn't buy the "wrong" brand or style. (Presuming you have LT tires and not car tires)
Get em warrantied or just buy a couple new tires, pick your flavor.
Sounds like defective tires. Rare but ____ happens.

Do you mean an indentation? USTMA Service Bulletin: Tire Sidewall Undulations

From the Bulletin: Sidewall indentations are a cosmetic characteristic and will not affect the performance of the tire. If bulges, rather than indentations, appear on the sidewall or if there is any question concerning the sidewall appearance, the tire should be examined by a tire service professional.

So you may or may not have a problem.
