Either tire will work. And they don't do the sidewall cracking which is a big plus.

the dealer I have been using for the last 20 yrs carries these to brands and I am not going to put the Michelins back on. I'm keeping her for another 3 yrs then trading in.

They all have sidewall cracking if not cared for properly.

Covering tires when not in use will prevent sidewall cracking.

The type of Polymer that ALL tires are made from will breakdown when left exposed to the sun.

Paraffin wax is mixed into the compound and it blooms to the surface to protect the tire for the effects of the sun and atmosphere. Once it is depleted the cracking will begin very quickly.

The time it takes for the wax to be depleted can vary between companies but also has a lot to do with how the tire is cared for.

I put 4 Toyo 154's on the back of my coach. I did it because I was happy with the 2 154's I put on the front 4 years ago. So far a great tire. Replaced the Mich. because of sidewall cracking.

$1390.00 out the door for the 4.

Hope this helps with your choice.

Michelin has a stiffer ride sooner as rubber cook quicker than other brands rolling down the road. No other manufacturer has a CRACK chart for their dealers to follow. Michelin is $$$ compared to other tires and I love my Toyo 154's. Saved big bucks, have a great ride and are very stable in all weather. Even drove on slush and light snow with no problems. (Got caught off guard.)

Free at spending others money and ignoring a new generation of experiences. Are you certain that is wise? Glad you are happy with Michelin. The passengers of the Hindenburg and Titanic were happy till history proved there was a better way.


I am with Toyo because I have had of many years of problems with Michelin. Your traditional thinking is flawed, I hate to say. Time to let go and move forward. Michelin is not the only game in town anymore.

The original posting is over a year old, I'm sure he's bought his tires already. There's no point in adding more to the "what tire" debate. There are plenty of posts already and it mostly boils down to personal preference, what your best friend has or how much you want to spend. There are many quality brands and all are fine.
