New guy tire question

We just purchased a 2010 Winnebago TOUR knowing it would need tires ASAP
we are now in the process of acquiring said tires.
Using the FMCA discount programs the CONTINENTAL tires are approximately
$100 each less than Michelin. Does anyone have experience with the CONTINENTAL tires. Size is 275/80R 22.5

I have run Continental HCLs for about 10 yrs now. They drive well, wear well, and are not noisy. I would absolutely recommend them. My original size is 275/80. I am now running 295/75 as they are easier to find. They are almost identical in size, etc, just .05 in taller.

I too am looking at the Continental brand but model HSR2 in a 16 ply. A good design for class A coach.

If they meet your needs then why not? I've always had good service out of Michelins but usually I've needed a MH tire size that only Michelin made at the time too.

That's what I was told about the 275/80 22.5s but I later found that wasn't true.

For the '02 DSDP I went from the 275/70's to 305/70's on the front to gain capacity, Continental had them listed in their books but they hadn't yet produced them.
Present rig takes 365/70's on the steer and tag and no one but Michelin makes that one yet.

Have you look at Toyo M154's? https://www.toyotires.com/commercial...ion-tire#Specs Great tires and better cost. https://www.toyotires.com/commercial The site is a bit tricky to navigate. Find your 275/80 dimensions and RPM. Compare with the Toyo chart. I went to the 295/75R 22.5 146/143L 120psi tire. I have Conies on the front. Long sad story. Payed too much for them through FMAC compared to the Toyo's.
