Wink Need new tires........any suggestions on brand?

Looking for a good quality set of tires. Looking for best ride with quality. Any good (or bad) experiences to share?? Live in Chicago area, so traction in bad weather is important (unfortunately)

Let the brand wars begin We all have our favorites, start at the reputable shops like Les Schwab, Big O,etc. These people know tires and local conditions. If price is a major concern look at Costco but do your homework first. Stay away from the cheap imports, safety first.

Just had my original Michelin XRV's replaced with Toyo's at Les Schwab. I was happy with the Michelin's but saved about $1300 with the Toyo's.

I switched from Michelin's to Toyo's - used the money saved to upgrade shocks. Been happy with the Toyo's.

We had the XRV on our DP. Had two blow out; The tire shop reccomended One called the green line. It is a heavey duty truck tire, Rides a bit Firmer. we get better diesel mileage Per gallon; they cost more ,we feel they are worth the extra cost , they are Mich.

Maybe I missed it, but 12 replies so far and nobody has asked the question, "tires for what". Is it your MH (model would be good to know), your toad, or your snow blower?

If it's your MH, and it's a Winnebago, it probably came with Michelins. My feeling is that since they are not the cheapest, the chassis builder put them on for a reason and I would follow their lead.

Michelin XRV. Best ride and made for RV's.
They are worth the extra cost.
If you ever have a blow out on an RV,front or read,do the opposite of what most may think and accelerate to regain control, then get over safely. Had to share this!

Thanks to all. Decided on the Michelin XRV's for my 2001 Itasca Suncruiser. Sorry about the lack of information about the MH. It's in my profile and I thought it automatically showed up in my posts.
