I have goodyear 275/70R/22.5 G-670 RV tires from the factory. Made on the 47 week of 2004. They are on a 2005 40' class A Fleetwood Excursion. That makes them 6yrs old this Nov. They look and ride great and have been stored with my motorhome in a garage since Feb 2006 except for two or three months a year. Has anyone tried another brand other then Michelin that they were happy with? The best price I have found for the goodyears is $544.oo The goodyears do give a great ride. I had Coopers on my last motorhome and they were terrible. Thanks,Mike.

I just put KUMHO 225/70 22.5's on mt 40' 2003 Fleetwood Revolution. They ride better than the Michelins I replaced. Cost was less than $3000.00 ou the door.

I am in the same boat. My 04 tires are nearing completion date (20K miles) and seems like most are looking at the Hankook tires AH12 16 ply 275 70/22.5. After reading all the post about GY, I think I will pass and Michelins are way out of the price line. I'll be keeping watch on what you decide.

I just e-mailed Kumho tires to see if they have a 275/70/22.5 replacement for my Goodyear. If they do I will do some more research on them. If not I will see what else gets posted to my ? . My Goodyear have 50000 miles on them and I will put G670's back on if nothing else comes up. Especially on the front.

I put Hankook AH-12 275/70R22.5 LR-H tires on my coach in Jan to replace the G670 tires that were rivering bad. So far we have over 4000 miles on them and the ride and handling improved drastically from what the G670s were doing. The cost for them, out the door, mounted, spin balanced, state and federal taxes in Yuma AZ was $378/ ea, $2268 for 6. I highly recommend them as a reasonable priced replacement for the RV.

I ran Michelins for many years and never had any issues. However when I went to the Freightliner, I riped the side out of one of my Steer tires. Was going with Michelin, but the Tire Shop I used talked me into trying two Toyo tires. I did and have about 10,000 miles and no wear at all. I also have never balanced them, and run smooth and no viberation at all. And the price was almost had the price of the Michelins. So for I will continue to use Toyo's, very impressed so for.

Thanks for your replies. Two more brands for me to investigate,Hankook and Toyo. 4000 and 10,000 miles are a good testement and I can save $$$$.

When I replaced my Goodyears there was a $25 rebate per tire. I asked my tire dealer if those old ones were worth something? He gave me $75 each for them. For a total of $100 off per tire. It doesn't hurt to ask.


Life is like a roll of toilet paper
the closer you get to the end the faster it goes.
Enjoy it what's left.
Happy traveling, Ray
