Have a newer Greyhawk?

Do you have a newer Greyhawk? If so, what tires is Jayco and Ford putting on them now? I have an 09 and am looking to put new tires on it and was wondering what they were coming with from the factory these days.

Thanks,
Eric Grove

I have a 2013 and it came with Michelin's. I put about 2000 miles on them and they were recalled and replaced with new Michelin's. Tires seem fine to me bot still only have about 4000 miles on the new ones. Saw some 2015's at Goshen this week and believe they are Michelin also.

We bought a 2011 about a month ago that had Just had the Michelins replaced under the dry rot recall.

Thanks everyone. The reason I asked is my Greyhawk came with Michelin LTX M/S tires. I just replaced them with Michelin LTX M/S2s. The new tires feel softer than the originals and the handling has suffered because of this. The backend of the motorhome gets pushed around much easier by passing vehicles than when I had the original tires.

MS2's are the newer version. No worries. E rated. I replaced ours under the recall and have 5k on them now. No problems.

I went from M/S to M/S2's under the recall. Didn't feel much difference between them. Did you check the pressures? I found the tire dealer had them under inflated.

Who did you get the recall thru? Is there anyway to find out about the recall? I'm asking because I just bought a 2014, but the Ford chassie is listed as a 2013.

Just checked mine are MS

Thanks for any info.

I just purchased an 08 GH31SS, and the tires were the original Mic's, were extremely dry rotted and the dealer put new Mic's M/S 2's on as part of the deal. I can't comment on the old version as never drove it until new tires were put on.
