Need to replace my 6 yr old Michelins. 275/80R 22.5 Tread looks OK but sidewalls cracking. Any suggestions for something better or are these still a good tire for a Class A pusher?

I really like my Michelin XPS ribs. They are so heavy I can barely lift one. I'm thinking they will last forever or maybe my RV lifetime. Age 81 now and growing older each day!

I recently moved from Michelin to Toyo. They stink for the first month or two (off-gassing) but they are sure-footed on dry and wet, have a more comfortable ride than Michelin and are cheaper than Michelin even if you have the FMCA discount.

Thanks to both of you for your replies. I have never really thought about anything other than Michelins.

I'll add that Toyo are becoming very popular with truck fleet operators where price per mile driven and safety are both important.

6 years on toyo m144’s 45000 miles . Minimum tread wear and sidewalls look like new. Had cracking Michelin tires prior. Michelin make rv specific tires by using less tread depth ( you’ll never use all of a 150000 plus mile truck tire ) and softer sidewalks. I didn’t like them and they were cracking at 5 years old .. put on by the prior owner. the toyo tires ride just as well. I was told the toyo was designed as a bus tire to take abuse that RVers like hitting and rubbing curbing. Preparing over the next couple years replacing with the same even thought they look perfect, just for peace of mind .
