New Motor Home Tires Class C

Have a 3010DS. It came with the Michelins on it, They are aprox 5 years old.
They show a lot of dry rot. Now trying to decide on , another set of Michelins, Have used the Firestone Transforce on that last class C we had and they proved to be very good.
What about the Hancook tire, See that Ford is putting them on the E450 from the factory, Any one have any experiecnce with the Hancooks.

I have the Hankooks but have not driven on anything but dry flat roads. I would estimate by the ratings they got in TireRack that they are OK but do not measure up to Michelin quality. If they offer no confidence in wet, they will be gone in a flash. TBD

Have a friend with a class C that bought Continental tires because the load rating was higher.

On my old class C I ran Hankook tires on it and they performed very well in both wet and dry conditions .

I have Hankooks on our Ford Transit based motor home and on my F-150. When it is time for new tires they won't be Hankooks. They just do not "feel" as good as the Michelins I've previously used. The Hankooks on my F-150 break traction way too easy, I feel like a 16 year old doing burnouts at times...

You might want to take a look at joining the FMCA for their tire discount programs and other benefits. See Here for more information.

Was just trying to get info on other tires, Thanks for the input. Think im just going to stick with what it had and go with the Michelins.
