Default Tommy has 2 New Shoes

I upgraded my M450 front wheels and tires with 365 75 22.5 Michelin's. I picked them up this afternoon.

After seeing them mounted off the coach being rolled up to mount, I would have bet they would not have fit. They are huge compared to the 315s. However, they mounted fine and I found no rubbing in tight turns because of the extra width.

I only had a short drive back to Pleasanton, CA but I am impressed with the softer ride (110 PSI versus 130 PSI) and tighter straight tracking. I feel a small degree of more firmness in the steering wheel requiring a slight bit more Lance Armstrong (performance enhancing substances) but nothing that I probably will notice in another hour of driving.

All in all, I like what they have done to the drive and look forward to being able to carry a bit more weight in front.

And, I used our Michelin Advantage Program and bought the huge tires that cost $1,100 to $1,200 each for less than $600 each.

I had a Prevost here for floors a month ago. That coach had those size tires. I first thought they were the super singles.

Default 365 tire upgrade

Just put my new 365/70R22.5 on this last weekend haven't driven it yet but will be taking the coach from Texas to Michigan by way of South Dakota (Sturgis) at the end of this month looking forward to see how it rides with the larger tires and lower air pressure.

Cool 365 tire upgrade

Well just completed a 3600+ mile trip with the new 365 front tires and have to agree with everyone who has switched over, these are great tires the ride and handling was fantastic. Made the trip without any mechanical problems at all. Did have a couple of electrical issues the main one drivers seat will not adjust so I am sure this is just a blown fuse, just need to find it and the back up camera quite working. All in all a great trip very happy with the coach

Bob, The fuse for the power seats (Both side ) is in the panel right behind the drivers seat on the wall above the table.
