Are Michelin XRV in 225/70R-19.5 still being manufactured, or are the ones available new-old-stock from whenever?

There are no other tires than Michelin! (Or at least tires that stay round.) I have worked on cars for 34 years and don't recommend anything but Michelin. They are on my own cars and my Caravanner, too!

FWIW, Continental, Hankook, Nokian, General and Cooper were all rated in the top half of Consumer Reports' recent test of truck tires.

IMHO tire choice is relative to your use of motorhome and your wallet. For me, I'll probably go with Coopers, then when going to full-time status, Goodyear or Michelin's

I don't have a MH yet but I do run Cooper 245X70 or 75 on my pickup. Been on there for a couple of years. I pull a gooseneck so I know how they do with a load. The wear is minimal and they are bought and serviced locally. I don't remember who owns Cooper but my experience has been great with them. When I put them on they were also several hundred $ cheaper. When these wear out I would install that brand again.

my last blowout of an old Michelin happened while stopped at light within view of a Cooper dealer, pulled in no Cooper tires my size available, but he could get Kumho within a couple of hours vs. cooper's in a week. Guess what tires are on the MH.

Based on a couple of million miles of driving and owning big trucks, there are some tires that are better than others. This is usually related to cost. In the trucking industry where we track tire costs to the third or fourth decimal point, buying tires for long term value and service are critical. Buying tires for most of us here is a matter of initial cost usually. I would hazard a statement here that many MHs do not wear their tires out but instead become unserviceable due to old age. My own experience with almost all of the brands of tires has taught me that my care and use of the tires always plays a big portion of how long they last and the service they give to me. Not saying would run out and buy tires made in the Orient just to save a buck but almost any tire will do okay if you treat them right. You should see what they run for tires over here. Nothing of the sort for brand names and almost always way overloaded. Sometimes just being lucky is great stuff. 67K load on a single axle tractor with a tandem axle trailer. It happens.

I have used Carlisle tires on my boat trailers for over 10 years and never had a problem. When one of my Goodyear's exploded last June, I put on four new Carlisle's. I could not be happier with them.

I was told about my new to me motor home , not to use Michelin on the front or I will have blow outs. Any truth to this?
