Minnie Winnie tire recommendations

I have a 2018 MW with the F-350 chassis. Itís has the original Hankook 225/75/R16 tires on it with 19k miles. What replacement tires would you recommend that has a great ride and is of premium quality? Thanks, Allen

Hi Allen,
Just out of curiosity, it seems like you are replacing your Hankooks a little early. Are you having problems with them?
I checked on Discount Tire and found these:
Michelin Agilis CrossClimate 225 /75 R16 121R C8 BSW
Thanks, Eagle5

Good Evening Eagle5, I do not like the look of these cracks on just one tire. Iím planning on replacing tires every 5 or 6 years to be safe. My MW does not sit in the sun and is fully covered by a metal RV Shed. Thank you for your response, Allen

Hi again Allen,
Having a full metal shed is a great idea!
I better keep an eye on my 1-year newer Hankooks. I agree; I do not like crack lines in the sidewalls.
Thanks, Eagle5

What might be the conventional wisdom here: Would frequent applications of 303 help coax a tire like this to the "standard" 7-year replacement point, or should it be considered inevitable that it will fail prematurely?

Allen, do you have a full size spare tire underneath?

If so,
You might consider using the cracked sidewall tire as the spare and installing the spare on the coach.

Peace of mind. I found a set of Michelin Agilis Cross Climates in town.
I want to thank everyone for the help and suggestions, Allen

Hi Allen,
Those tires look really good! Glad you found them.

I have a similar setup and decision point on a 2020 Minnie Winnie 22r (with 2019 E-350 chassis). This RV also came with the Hankook 225/75R/16 tires, and are approaching the 5 year age (manufacturing date: Oct/18). These tires have 26K miles, and are starting to show a little uneven wear. It's also worth noting that I've never had them rotated. The other factor in my decision, is an upcoming cross country adventure of over 5000 miles through various terrains and temperature conditions.

Two different RV tire shops have recommended the Michelin Agilis Cross Climate tires, however one was suggesting the Goodyear Wrangler Workhorse HT as an alternative - especially for extended gravel/dirt road travel. I've also got the Toyo Open Country HT, and Kuhmo Krugen HT51 on the list.

For me, I've had a less than positive experience with Michelin tires (Premiere LTX All Season) on our Subaru Outback. They gave a nice, quiet, almost "spongy" ride, but reduced the handling on turns for that vehicle. After 20K miles they were wearing unevenly on the edges - even though I rotated every 6000 miles. They were replaced under warranty, and I went back to the original Bridgestone tires that come with Subaru Outbacks. It's much better with the Bridgestone tire. That said, I understand that a Minnie Winnie is quite different than an Outback...

It may be too soon for feedback, but was wondering how the Agilis has been doing on your rig?

Hello Harvester, I’m extremely happy with my new Agilis tires. Just put the first 500 Mile trip on them. I tow a 20 V-Nose tandem double axil travel behind my Mini. It drives so much better than the Hankooks. Much smoother ride and I’m not darting all over the road anymore. So hopefully I can get the service life out of them. I’m only going 5 or 6 years max for safety reasons.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm very much leaning towards getting the Agilis tires.

One other small detail I wanted to ask about. From carefully looking at the tire tread in the photo, it looks like you didn't go with the "commercial" rated version of the tire that Eagle5 posted the link for. My RV tire shop here in Texas has both versions, and the commercial rated tire is about $600 more for the whole set. I'm pretty sure I can go with the regular version as it appears you have.

Your absolutely correct. I have the regular tire not the commercial. The commercial tire is overkill. It had a super high weight rating. The commercial tire is designed for abuse and it would not have the ride quality etc. If you want to send me a PM with your number I can text you a photo of my receipt that shows the detailed specifications and part numbers of the tires I bought.

How are the tires doing so far? I have a 2016 22R with 43k miles, bought it last year and put about 20k miles onto it. Looks like the tires are due for replacement.

Your a very brave individual. You were due for tires years ago. 20k miles ago. For your protection and those driving down the highway next to you, please replace your tires.

Yes, you are absolutely right. I went to DT today and got a PM from costco for the Michelin Agilis Cross Climates as recommended, $1410 plus tax with Hazard warranty. Will go and replace them tomorrow morning.

FYI, the costco one is not exactly the same (with different thread) and DT CSR told me costco one are actually on recall but still happily PM for me.
