I am shopping for new tires for my Class A motorhome. It is a Ford Chassis F-53 with V-10 the tire size is 245 70R 19.5. Is anything else acceptable besides Michelin and Goodyear. They are so expensive. I know that many will say cost should not be a consideration but, it is. How about Hankook, Kuhmo, Sampson and others? Thanks for your help.

I put Kumho KRS03's on over 2 years ago and so far are wearing well. Much softer ride than the Goodyears.

When I had a class A, the tire shop that I dealt with handled truck tires and told me that Bridgestone and Goodyear were the best. I had very bad experiences with the big M. Like any tire, be sure you get the right load rating for your vehicle.

Consider Firestone, made in US by Bridgestone. I replaced my GYs last year/8k miles and have been very pleased by the ride and handling. A little more expensive than Hankook. Good luck!

I put Hankook on our 96 Southwind. I'll buy them again, they're good tires.

our tire guy, Pat at Pro Tires Denton TX recommended B F Goodrich for our Country Coach. My DH (a former tire guy) is very pleased with them. They are owned by Michelin and made in America. They are not the cheapest but much cheaper than Goodyear or Michelin. We got B F Goodrich ST230's

When deciding how much to spend on new tires, remember, your tires are the weakest link between your coach and the highway.

We've run Bridgestone R250F load range "G" tires on our coach now for approximately 10 years without incident.

I'm more concerned with product reputation and quality rather than cost.

Good luck with your choice and safe travels.

We put 6 same size Hankooks on a year & 6000 miles ago and have been completely satisfied. I had bad experiences with Goodyear G670s and won't buy any more GY products. The Hankooks still look brand new and I saved quite a bit of $...which is a primary factor for me
