I hope this is the best place for this question.

I need new tires for our 2012 Allegro Breeze. The size is 265/70R/19.5. Can't find too many local dealers who can install that size.

One local shop has 4 Hankook AH11s and was supposed to have the other 2 delivered by yesterday. Today they still haven't arrived. Their price is $2570.

Another I just found (since I'm waiting on the 1st to call) can get 6 Roadmasters delivered (so they tell me) in a day. Price $1662.

The almost $1K tells me a lot, but they both are probably foreign made.

Does anyone have any experience with either?

So one is a high quality foreign tire and one is a low quality foreign tire. Because it’s made overseas doesn’t mean it’s low quality. We...USA...would be in a whole bunch of trouble without foreign trade.

Hankook makes an excellent tire. I removed the Michelin tires on our 96 Southwind and replaced them with Hankook (19.5).
I also have Hankook on our Suburban.

I can't help you with the Roadmaster tires. The price is tempting.
Hopefully someone has experience with Roadmaster.

The roadmaster RM170 265/70/19,5 is list as local deliver only. I have run cooper since 2005 and love them. But this tire is list as local use, Think you need to call Cooper and ask.

Hankook is a first line tire. OEM on may over the road trucks. They are not Chinese tires. I bet the Roadmaster are low ball Chinese. Spend the money!

“I bet the Roadmaster are low ball Chinese.”

So now we’re “betting” that a particular tire is Chinese and “low ball.” Don’t need no facts cuzz we is betting!

Its not only spend the money, its wait for the first dealer to get tires he said last week would be in 2 days ago. Now I can only imagine they will be this years build date.
