Question What tires do you recommend for 310 motorhome?

All the tire threads I found were mostly from 2002-2004, so I wanted to get some fresh information.

We need tires on our 310 Limited MH and I would appreciate your recommendations. What do you like/what is working for you? An idea of the price range would be helpful too, if you don't mind.

Are Michelins still bad for motorhomes, or have they improved since the very negative impressions from 2002?

We got Delta Chaparral Highway light truck radial tires for our 27' Winnebago Brave MH a few years ago and have been happy with them. I am not having much luck finding info about them on the Internet, so I am not sure if they are made any more, or in the size for our MH.

Thanks for any help!

Susan

Susan, my AS is a daily driver so I was frugal while still wanting a high treadwear rating. My local tire shop provided a Chineese Michein called Double Coin... I kid you not.
I've had almost two years of very trouble free use and they seem to be standing up very well.

A year ago, I put 4 Goodyear's on the back. On the front the PO had Hankook's, and both are holding up good. I do not know how may miles are on the Hankook's, but like both so far. Goodyear made in USA, getting hard to find much made here anymore!

Hi Susan. We put 6 Michelins on 2 years ago and they seem to be fine. I had heard all the bad press but when I asked a tire guy I trust he said they are still the best tires in the world. He carried Bridgestones and Goodyears and they were all about the same price. I'm happy with my decision.

We replaced all the tires on our 345 in the Fall of 2005. We got the Goodyear G670 tires. They are made for motorhomes, not trucks. The ride is great and they run cool. We have at least 9000 miles on them at this point.
Good luck, Rob

What size did you get? My MH has 8R19.5 and the Goodyear website does not list that size for the G670.

The size is: 225/70R19.5
BTW Goodyear says that you do not need tire covers for this new generation of tire. They have a UV protectant in the rubber.
Hope this helps, Rob

Thanks.

Have you had any issues with the smaller diameter of the 225/70R19.5 tires?

No problems at all. Our speedometer seems to be right on the money.

One of the things I have noticed, taking a closer look, The Hankooks only have a tread width of 5 3/4" and the Goodyear's have a width of 7". The Goodyear's look so much better on the coach than the Hankooks! Some extra cash, (right!!!) and Goodyear's will be going on the front! Maybe when I get the ALCOA wheels!

The Hankooks are skinny...
I pretend to like them for non-hydroplaning.
