This is what I love about forums. So many experiences and stories about what works. I am going to reduce pressure in new Toyos to around 90 and then see if putting 2000 miles on them makes a difference. I have no weight above curb weight yet. I don't want to introduce to many variables at once. Thank you all for great info for this Newbie. God bless.

As a former truck driver myself the first few thousand miles on new tires on my tractors always had them “ Squirrley “ the thick tread needed to break in. I hated the first few trips but they always settled in.
I’m not sure but Michelin Motorhome specific tires I’ve always believed are made with much less tread and a softer sidewall for “ride” concerns of motor home drivers. Motor home drivers are used to “car” ride and pretty picky expecting a “Cadillac ride” .from what is essentially a truck or bus chassis Long term mileage and constant use / abuse durability isn’t a priority on very low mileage vehicles.
My toyo 144 have been great they settled in pretty quickly.

Any RVer looking for 22.5" tires needs to check the various forums on the internet. You'll find lots of information on Michelins.

Hi,

My tire dealer recommended Toyo. I've been using them since 2011

We always had Michelin and went with Toyos this year. Not disappointed.

I am on my 2.125nd set of Michelins (had to buy just one recently). The first set still looked brand new when they came off despite their age, and I am 18 months into a set of Energy Z Coach tires (315 / 335s on 22.5s) . They are absolutely fantastic in terms of road holding, ride quality, and emit almost no road noise at any posted speed. Better than the already great set I had before. I have heard Toyos are a fine tire too, but when you're talking many thousands of dollars either way, I went with what I thought was a safer bet based on prior experience.

Never heard of "breaking in" a tire. What changes occur in the tire when it's broke in?
