14K miles on my Goodyear G670's, and the front tires also needs to be replaced. Has anyone ever looked at or used Hankook tires?

What tire to choose?

I just got 2 Michelin's, the same as Leisure Larry. I also had them check the alignment. The toe-in was way off. Hopefully now I can keep these for a long time.

Also, what pressure do you keep in your tires? The tire store recommended 92, and the sticker on the coach says 82. thoughts?

Got 2 Bridgestone 245/70-19.5 R250 on my fronts. So far very happy with them. Price was horrible but what can you do at night, in a truck stop, on a wreckers tow hook??!!!

@dutiful don, That 82psi is only applicable for the OEM tires, the Goodyear G670. So ignore that now on since your using some Michelins.

Get your rig weighed out at a truck stop. Most say to get a 4 corner weigh, but I've only used the axle scales at the truck stops. You'll find out that the 30DS is close to your axle rating in the rear if not over. And your steers have room to spare. Once you get the weight ticket from the scales, take a look at the loading chart here.

I'm guessing for the XZE, the lowest PSI listed is 75psi, which is the lowest you can go regardless of your weights. With the Goodyears, it was 80 psi. Enjoy your new kicks.

The posted maximum PSI on my Michelins is 120. The installer recommended 100 PSI cold with my front GAWR. The coach drives and steers wonderfully.
