Over the past 20 years I have run Toyo and Sumitoma and have been happy with both of them. I shopped around for best price but have never used Hankook although I have heard good things about them. Just put on 6 new Sunitomas for $1860.00 out the door so I believe, if you shop around, you can find a better deal on tires.

As far as the tie rods and other front end work, I would recommend another shop for evaluation. Back in the day I drove a 1999 Bounder 68,000 miles without any front end work. Just sayin. Best to you in your quest. Happy travels. Arnold

Toyo tires. I replaced my 6 on my 22kLb. f53 Bago Sightseer for $2600 cash installed out the door 275 x 22.5’s. I shop around for everything. The diff from my oe Michelin’s to this were microscopic, except for the price. $800/difference.

goodyears are notorious for rivering. I did front end alignment no improvement. After three rotaions the tires were 5 years old and i junked them. went with hankooks no problems so it was not the coach it was the tires.

That's an insane price on those. I was quoted $583. Is this a 22.5" tire?

We need to purchase new tires for Class A and looking for suggestions on where to order/buy a full set. And of course, installation.

Did you do the front end work?


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

Like several others, I replaced my OEM Michelins at five and a half years....will never buy them again. I have Continentals on the front and Toyos on the rear. Both were cheaper and will last longer.

I would get a second opinion on the front end work. unless you have been abusing it, I don't see an F53 needing tie rods and king pins at such low miles. especially on something that is used mostly on highways.

As far as tires....just shop around. Ive heard good things with the Hankooks.


I went with Toyo on my Workhorse. No complaint. The thing about Toyo's v/s say Michelin Toyos do not last as many miles.. But on an RV that is almost never the reason for tire replacement (miles) YEARS is the reason most RV tires get replaced. So why waste money on the HIGH MILLAGE tires when you can save money and the tread will never wear out.

Page 2: Ford Dealers
Wife had a Mercury Tracer.. It was running rough (Will tell why) took it to local Ford Dealer for tune up (not help) and later said Diagnose and repair.. They told me the fuel pump was leaking. I ask to look, sure enough there was evidence of a leak at the top of tank where the hose connects to the pump outlet.. FRESH leak, no evidence that it was leaking when I pulled in.. 300 to replace the hose they punctured and the dealer is now padlocked by the State of Michigan (Hey. not a good idea to rip off a police dispatcher who is friends with the Secretary of State Investigator).

Oh. the rough running.. Part of a Tune Up on that car is replacing the spark plugs and the wires.. They did not replace the wires.. I finally did and varroom no problem.

I normally dealt with a Chevy dealer (My car was a chevy) and never had that kind of problem there. DID have one problem.. Well two. but one they took care of it. no questions asked, and the other one.. Well.. I did not pay for it so no rip-off. (They simply did not know how to fix it.. I finally figured it out and it got fixed).


Home is where I park it.
