Thanks It confirms my choice of Michelin.. All those horror stories about Michelin zippers are probably after 7 years...

Hi all - just purchased a new set of Yokohama YR023's (22.5") replacing Michelin's. Very nice ride, no road walk. I did some research & ended up buying these 1 for the price & 2 they were recommended by a longtime friend who has a truck tire service business & an RV. They are an all position tire & height wise, very close to the Michelin that we had on there.

Good luck with which ever brand you choose!!

Replace my fronts at 7 years,29360km (fall of 2013) did the backs this fall 43920 km. We talked once before about driving lights and I remember you are from the county. If you remember I am from Tweed. Heads up if you have not bought your tires yet call Jeff Robinson 6138493740. He offers the best price anywhere in our area. $525 ea. no tax(Michelin 235/80R 22.5) That's installed and he comes to your house. He charges no tax because he works off the Reservation Shannonville area. One other thing I heard you sold a Bell receiver to my sister in law Rita. Small world eh.

Maybe it's time to ask Santa

Thanks
KenandTerry, see the message I just posted. 47,000 miles and the front tires were beginning to separate. They are 5 years old, and I replaced them with Toyos.

Happy Trails, Forrest

Just replaced the Michelins at a little over 5 yrs and 24000 mi. They showed little tread wear, but were beginning to show quite a bit of sidewall cracking. Replaced them with Toyos.

Just replaced my 4 back tires with 16 ply Bridgestones. They were 10/09. So now I have a matching set and good to go for another 6/7 years. Good riddance to explosive Goodyears!!!

To keep this thread going I replaced my Michelin tires on my Georgetown just a week ago.
The original tires date was Oct 2011 and I had over 42,000 miles on them.
Front tires showed edge wear and sidewall cracks. Back were in better shape.


Replaced them with Toyo tires 245/78/22.5 which are 14 ply and same weight class G.
It cost me to have them installed with balancing and tax $2,560
If I replaced them with Michelins it would have been $3,500
They ride the same and may even be a bit quieter.

Replaced all 6 tires a year ago. From their appearance, I had thought the prior owner had replaced them shortly before selling us the unit 3 years ago. However, when I date checked them at an SKP'S park, I found out they were 10 years old. Apparently the original tires on my 2005 Georgetown. Never had a flat but it does show that looks can be deceiving. About 47,000 miles on the old tires.
