Is there really that much difference per tire . Which one do I choose.At this point in time after doing some research today seems to be a tire shortage in the nation for G& H rated tires

My local dealer says he has found me 6 Toyo M154 245/75R22.5 I asked that he verify the DOT production date, and not install if they are over 9 months old.
Dealer says the same as your post, that all the manufacturers have an order backlog.

New tires should go on a week from today.

You must have money to burn. Get with it Toyoall the way. Great tire. Had mine on DP for 8 years. Time to replace them. No Brainerd. Toyo again.

IMO, yes. One has a long history of sidewall cracking, unexplained blow-outs (we had one do it in our garage, while parked), and always blaming the customer when something goes wrong.

Bridgestone doesn't. [emoticon]

For my money Michelin would be the absolutely last tire I would chose - ever, but thats just me. There are 10's of thousands of perfectly happy Michelins customers. I just don't happen to be one of them, and I will say they earned it!


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

Neither. Both are over priced and over hyped. I replaced a set of problem free, well wearing, no sidewall cracking, 8 year old Kelly Tire's, that I sold for $75 each, and had a set of Uniroyal installed. Kelly is a sub of Goodyear and Uniroyal is a sub of Michelin.

^^^ Depends on where you buy them. We had Bridgestones installed a few years back. The local, independent commercial tire guys bought a truck load on special and passed on the savings. They took our old Michelins in trade (local farmers use them for field trailers), I walked out the door for $1500.00. That was for 6 new Bridgestones installed and balanced.

I'm a big fan of checking with the local guys.
