How loyal are you to a particular RV tire brand?

14

Do you always buy your RV tires from the same manufacturer? We’re talking about the tires on your motorhome or vehicle you use to pull a towable recreation vehicle.

We wonder how loyal you are to a particular brand. Or is price more important? RV and truck tires are often expensive, so there’s much to consider.

Where’s your loyalty? Brand, price or both? Remember, it can take a moment for the poll to load, so stand by.

I prefer USA made and long mileage. Specific brands don’t necessarily grab my attention.

35 foot Class A apparently only takes the Michelin brand that I’ve had to buy at over $600 per tire. Better safe than sorry!

See if Yokohama makes a tire that will fit. I changed from Michelin to Yokohama and saved a bunch of $$$ and the ride is as good and they are wearing better on my 40′ Class A!

Your Class A may have come with a brand of tire that has a unique size, but that doesn’t mean other brands will not make size that is comparable and acceptable. Sounds like you just didn’t do your research.

Put the 2nd set of Michelin LTX on the dually last year (70,000mi).
Will put new Goodyear G614 on the 5er next year.

Prefer Goodyear, but buying Michelin for motorhome to match existing.

No specific tire brand loyalty, I look for durability/quality, price, warranty and service all found at tire dealers, not box stores. The tires I buy for all of my vehicles are either made in North America or Japan. No China bombs!

Michelin on the dually and Sailun on the 5er.

I usually go with the top 3 manufacturers. I worked in the tire industry early in my life, so things may have changed, but just about all your tires back then were made by the top 3 tire manufacturers, under different names. Back in the late 70’s the Toyo Tire co., in my opinion made the best tire. price was reasonable and the quality was high and the defects and returns were extremely low compared to the top 3 tire companies.

I did have a brand I purchased twice from a small shop out of Tennessee, unfortunately when the owner died they closed up shop. don’t know the brand name but they served me well and weren’t super expensive.

Tires, beyond those that may have come on your RV, is something you just don’t skimp on. Its peace of mind when you know you’ve done the best you can do. I have the Michelin XPS brand on my 5th wheel. That said, I also believe in pressure maintenance and tire monitoring.

I go to to a ‘real tire store’, one that does tires for more then just RV’s, usually Semi’s. I ask about the tires being made in USA (no China tires for me) and tires they are telling me about having any issues. I figure they know more about tires, then I ever will. The price is always a good value for my Class C.

Plenty of good tires not made in China or the USA.
