19.5" Tire Replacements for Vista 29VE

We have a Winnebago Vista 29VE and need to replace the 19.5" tires.
We are looking for recommendations.
Michelins are well rated. Toyo also seem to be well rated and are less expensive.
We make a couple of 1,200 mile (one way) trips a year and otherwise drive the pot hole crazy Midwest.

Following - I have the same need on my 29ve, about time to replace, and costs are outrageously high.

I've looked at what I would consider 2nd tier tires like these as well -

I have nothing against the Goodyears on there now, but their pricing is premium.

One more thing, @venner5 - you might want to look at some other forums like IRV2, a sister site to this one that has many more brands that ride on the same tires as us.

It's quite a lot to take in and navigate however so I'm hoping someone here can add words of wisdom.

I had these in the 245/70R19.5 size put on last year to replace the OE Goodyears and am very happy with them so far, and happy with the price as well

Is there some reason no one states the prices that they are quoted or trying to achieve?

I am pretty sure that the Goodyear tire spare I purchased from a local Goodyear Tire and Truck Center was cheaper than any tire that meets the specifications. I got a brand new $570 tire for $150. I could have bought 6 more, but nowhere to store them, plus they would just get old sitting in storage.

I don't expect anybody to find that deal, but I don't think you have to pay $570 either.

I keep the tire under the bed as spare if I ever have to use my roadside assistance. Buying a tire through them may have cost me $800.

I purchased Toyo's this past summer and am happy with the over all ride and feeling of the tires. They replaced Michelins. The price makes no difference as my tires are 22.5 so they would be more than your 19.5

I'm on the Ford F53 23,000 Lb. GCWR 178" Chassis with the 19.5 steel wheels with wheel simulators. Front axle rating 7,000 lbs. Rear axle rating 12,000 lbs. If you are not on this chassis these may not be the appropriate rating tires for you. Other factor for me is that the passenger side tires carry about 800 lbs more weight than the driver side tires due to the design of the 27N with its 19' long slide out and more windows on the passenger side.

My local independent tire dealer recommended Roadmaster RM170 vs. the OEM Goodyear G670s. The RM170s were slightly less cost and dealer could get them in 1 day vs several days for the Goodyears. 245/70/R19.5 Load Range H for the steer tires, bought in 10/2019, max load 3,740 lbs. Four rears replaced with RM170+ Load Range G, bought in 10/2020, max load 3,515 lbs. Fronts have 75 MPH max speed rating, rears have 87 MPH max speed rating.

Have 15,000 on fronts and 10,000 on rears and am satisfied with the ride and wear so far.

Run them at 85 PSI cold, Winnebago OEM recommended pressure on G670s was 82 PSI cold all around.

I wanted the RM170+, but it was October 2021 and there were only 2 available anywhere the dealer could find, and wait time for more was at least three months. He set me up with the Work Series for the same price, about $350/ea mounted, road hazard, etc. Load range H, I run them at 84psi all around and they are a much nicer ride than the G670 stock tires.
