Whay tires you guys running?

I thought my Jayco had 6 new tires when I bought it. I found out it only had four new (one year old) tires, which are mitchlin. The rear inside are old. I could sware the guy I bought it from said it had all ner tires. That's water under the bridge now. The newest one is 5 years old, the other side is older. The tread looks almost new, but the sidewalls are showing cracks. I would like to replace the two rear older tires. I have heard mitchlin tires will show side wall cracking early compaires to other tires. Anyone run Hercules tires? What about running two different brands on the back, or should I buy two more Mitchlins, and have them all the same brands? Stan

If I was buying 2 tires (no matter what the brand) I would move the front to the rear and put the new ones on the front. It is much easier to pull off with a rear flat than having something happen to the front tires. JMHO

I put 6 new Michelin LTX M/S when I bought my Granite Ridge. I have always had good results from those tires.

After much research on tires I put 6 new Firestone Transforce on my Granite Ridge. $1100 out the door.

I have run Michelin LTX/MS and LTX/MS2 tires on all my vehicles and was pleasantly surprised to see LTX/MS "e" tires on my 2012 GReyhawk when we looked at it to buy. I have been pleased with ride and handling even under the large load the RV puts on them.

I am a big fan of the Michelin products and have been pleased with them on our Greyhawk.
