I am wanting to replace my tires, size 275R7022.5 with Toyo tires. where would I find them in Indiana? Also, does anyone have any experience with Firestone MH tires?

I’m certainly no expert, but I would stay away from both of those tires. I’ve been very pleased with Michelin or Goodyear RV tires on the class A’s, fifth wheel, travel trailer, and three tent trailers we have owned.

Join the family motor coach group. I believe there is a nice discount on tire costs for doing so.

We have Toyo's on our MH and have nothing but good to say about them. We will replace them because of age this summer and will again put Toyo's on. Not sure where we bought them, but from some tire shop and then took them and the motorhome to a truck shop to have them put on, an alignment done and new valve extensions installed at the same time. This was in MI. So maybe find Toyo tires then find shop to install. Many tires shops to not have the necessary equipment to put them on a motorhome.

I removed 6 year old Michelins that were cracked and replaced with Toyo. Very pleased. Be sure to check the date on the tires to insure you are not buying older units.

You mention Firestone so just wanted to add that they are very good as well.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

We buy tires for our Tiffin Phaeton at Sam's Tirein Bristol. Not to be confused with Sam's Club. Small reputable dealer. We just bought a whole new set of MIchelins there in August (our second set from them). They accept the FMCA plan as well, saving about $50 per tire. I believe they sell the Toyo tire as well. We have friends who have those and swear by them. We have just always run Michelins and are very happy with them. Sam's may do Firestones as well, I am not certain.

Very efficient, good quality workmanship.

They are located on SR120 just east of town

You won't be disappointed with them. We go ahead of time and remind them we want newly produced tires, make an appointment, talk about how to do the FMCA discount thingy, then show up for the appointment

First the major differences (Which I'm sure the Original Poster has researched) are PRICE (way less) and tread life (Also less) the outside diamater (Which affects your speedometer) is within 1/2 of one percent as I recall (not significant about 1/4 mph at 50 Mph)

Half a dozen Mitchlins with FMCA discount 3500 plus install
Half a dozen Toyo at Belle Tire (Michigan tire dealer do not know if they go farther south) 2300 INSTALLED on site.

I got mine at Belle Tire but I do not know if they operate in the OP's state
They have shops all over MI some speclize in "Truck" tires and all have mobile Tire Folks

Last option is contact Toyo and ask "Where can I buy "em".


Home is where I park it.

Check Zurcher Tire in Monroe, IN. Not certain about Toyo, but they carry several brands. They beat FMCA’s price on our new tires.
