Tires for 2010 Itasca Ellipse 40CD

I know there have been a lot of posts on this subject and I have read a lot of them over the last few weeks. I am getting ready to replace the tires on my MH and I will be changing out from the Michelin to another brand because I do not use the MH as mush and the tires will age out well before they wear out.

I am looking at two different brands and looking for two answers. First I am going from 275/80R 22.5 to either Hankook or Yokohoma in the 295/75 R22.5.

Which would you recommend for an Itasca Ellipse?

Second question is G or H rated. Coach came with G rated but wanted to make sure of that G is still right.

Thanks

Bill

Bill , Michelin RV tires should be good for 10 years , any particular reason why your looking to replace them after only 4>5.

Tire side wall will have the max load rating in pounds at rated pressure, if the G rating and pounds agree with the coaches weight then sticking with G should be fine.
Unless you have your corner weights loaded and your having to run your tires at max inflation to support the load.

If you are changing tire profile you need to look into the dual rim spacing requirements of the new tires. If the duals are to close together the side walls can bind and rub on bumps they can overheat or tear each other apart.

Thanks for the response. Arizona weather really hit them hard and I already had cracking in the sidewalls. I had not covered the tires but will do so this time.

Another question , Parker , Texas or Parker Arizona ?

I spend my winters 14 miles north of Parker AZ.

BTW: Chassis manufacturer should be able to supply the rim spacing info if you need it.

Here is a neat web site to see a comparison in 2 tire sizes. Not much difference in size in the 2 tires you mentioned. You would still need to consider the weight rating between the 2 tires which is not covered in this comparison.

maclonchas; Michelin tires are prone to have SMALL cracks in the sidewalls without any issues. If you go to the Michelin tire web site for commercial tires they have pics and depth specs as to what is acceptable in sidewall cracks. If you drive as little as you indicated IMO I would not change the tires till I verified with a Michelin dealer that the cracks warranted changing tires.

Sorry I should have thought of that when I posted in the first place.

I think it's in this brochure.

My Michelin's have a 2011 date and have small, fine cracks in the side wall and have no plans on changing them for about another 3 years, right before we go full time.
