Class C motorhome tires

Bought a 2016 Jayco Greyhawk 29 ME. I need to replace the tires and looking for suggestions. I want a good riding and driving tire.

I have Discount Tire's Pathfinder brand on the four rears. Three years old maybe. Nice. I'll probably do them again. I had Goodyear Wranglers up front until I blew one out on a pothold the size of Rhode Island.

The front now has two Les Schwab tires. Since the only tire shop near the blowout was a Les Schwab. So far, I like them too.

Many, many here swear by Michelins.


Whatever you buy - keep them inflated properly. A good TPMS will help you monitor pressure and temps. Even great tires will have trouble if you run them too low or too hot or too fast.

I have Hankook's that were original from Ford on my 2020 26XD Class C. 34,000 miles on them so far and still look good. I had Michelins on the a 2015 Class C I had prior to this one, they were original factory tires at the time and put 43,000 miles on them. Had plenty of tire on them for another good season, but I traded it in. Great tire too. FMCA has a good discount program for members.

I replaced Hankook's with Hankooks. Had good luck with them and they performed well.

$171 at Discount Tire and if you find them cheaper they will match that price.

Michelin XPS RIB's. A real heavy duty truck tire with all steel casing. Be safe, not sorry. Not cheap, but in my opinion, absolutely the best.

I'm going with Michelin Agilis for my C. I have Cooper HT 2'S on now. They have been good. Replacing them because of age. They are 8 years old, lots of tread left. About $300 less for 6 but Michelin are rated best and going with them for piece of mind.

I would not buy Michelin tires for an rv application. They suffer from premature sidewall cracking.

Tires for my Class C

Michelin did have a problem some time back in the 2012-2015 timeframe but they are getting good ratings now with the revised compound that they use in the Agilis tire models from everything that I can see. Discount Tire and other sites rate them as the best. Thanks, Larry

Always check the date they were made and do not buy tire from overseas. You loose a year of tire life because of the long distance they are shipped. Buy American made only.

Fewer and fewer tires, like most everything else are made in America. I think there are about four brands left.

I have original Hankook's on my 2019 Redhawk, almost 44K miles on them, plenty of thread left. They are great riding tires! I will definitely replace them with the same tires when the time comes!

Ford engineers work directly with the tire company engineers to select a good tire for the Ford chassis. Unless you have a problem with the tire performance why not stay with the original tires?

The original tires on my 2007 Jayco Greyhawk 31SS were Michelin. I bought my C at 5yrs old with 3200 miles on it.

Tried Hankooks on cars in the past and was never impressed. They came original on our last 2 C's and have loved them. We'll replace with the same Hankooks that it came with.

My 2007 34ss came originally with goodyear tires. Not sure there is any logic other than cost as far the oem is concerned.
