I just had replaced my 8 year old Goodyear G670 tires with Michelin XZE tires. My tires looked great, but I just didn't feel comfortable with the age. I got the load range G rated tires. The manufactur date on my new tires was May 2011.

I went with the FMCA deal through Michelin and got them a $1,000 less that I was quoted by other Dealers for both the Goodyear G670 and Michelin XRV.

I have alway used Michelin tires on my other vehicles and have never had a problem with them. I was impressed with how the Goodyear tires held up under the hot dry conditions here in AZ, I can only hope the Michelin tires do as well.

We put the Mich; XZE green On our Motor home 38 foot Ultimate 330 cat; I inflate them To 100lbs. They are a truck tire Will ride a bit rougher, BUT I/we get an average of 10 MPG we have got as high as 12 MPG. This was in the flat land in Iowa and Nabraska; Running the RV tires it is like running them Half Flat so they ride good . they also let the wind blow you around.. Not so with the Properly Inflated Truck tire; Some/many may disagree; That is/are the facts From the drivers seat and the log/milage book.;; Life is good

Is there advantage with going with a higher load rating on the tires? What type of tire balancing sys. do you use?

I Have been tire price searching (230/80R22.5 LRG Michelin XRV) and have prices for 6 from a high of $3500 (Camping World & Belle Tire) to a low of $2700 from a couple local vendors. I asked for the price to include the balancing as well as the metal stems, Some will spin balance and some will balance with the sand or something like that. I will not worry about the balancing as I will go to a truck place to have the front end alignment checked and the wheels balanced at that time.

Mich. 275 80 x 22,5. I have them balanced at a good truck stop. Usualy Between $40.00 to $60.00 per tire. And it is worth every penny. It drives better then any car. if it is aligned and balanced properly..

I haven't experienced any of your issues. My tires are 6 years old, no cracks, looks like new. I store in doors. I travel in the deserts area and like the way my michs have served me.
