Subject : Tire Advice and Opinion
Message Body : I am needing some tire advice and opinions I need to purchase 6 new tires for my Four Winds Hurricane 31D GVWR 18000 Lbs, GAWR Front 7000 Lbs 80 PSI, Gawr Rear 11000 Lbs 80 PSI I don’t want a real expensive tire, but want something reliable. So far I can get Samson GL283A 245/70R 19.5 Out the door mounted and balanced with new stems for $1295 Or I can go Dayton D520S with Regular Balance or Equal Balance for $1587 Both tires are 16 ply. Do I really need 16 ply tires? Would 14 ply tires ride smoother? Anyone with experience using Samson or Dayton Tires? I have read many posts on Samson but none on Dayton. All posts are old ones and not to valid today. I need recent input. I will weigh the coach when I get it loaded so I can adjust tire pressure accordingly. Please if you have used these tires Let me know your opinion of them. Past and present. I only Drive 5000 to 6000 miles a Year. One 2500 mile round trip to Texas and the rest are 300 to 400 miles.

    Mel,
    There are a few items on your motorhome that are not worth trying to go cheap on. They are: Tires, brakes, shocks, suspension components. It’s your responsibility to drive safely so act like it. Get the most proven reliable tire out there, Michelin, Goodyear, Goodrich and do research on the specific tire. You obviously know a little about what you’re doing with weights, pressures, etc. Now get a good tire and you’re set. You’re lucky you don’t have a 54,000lb motorhome, my tires are minimum $4000. $1300?

    Regards, Mark
