No don't trust them. I going with the Toyo just not sure on the drive axle if they will work. You made a good point on the taller tires and I read more on them here. Seems Randy used them but not sure about on a 40wb.

If I could find Michelin @ $ 516.25 a tire delivered to wherever I wouldd have bought them :€)

I know some people and dealers, when they don't want to spend the money, turn the tires around so the date codes are on the inside and you can't see them.

I got 8 Toyo’s last year at American Tires. All rate codes were under 3 months. I thought it was a scam, but when I went to pick them up they were delivered as promised.

The shop I got them from was in Fontana if memory serves me right. They were under $500 per tire after taxes.

Your late to the thread Kurt. Original price was over 9 per tire. Edit by irstaxhelp changed the total to a much lower price.

Default Uniroyal Tires.

I just went to Border Tires here in Lakeside, CA just to ask what they could do on the Toyo tires. Border tires is a large company though new to our area. The manager there was very knowledgeable about RV tires and was telling me how certain tread patterns can cause a heave RV to be squiriy ride with certain straight tread patterns. All the tires I had been looking at were fine though. He asked me if I heard of the Uniroyal tires made in the USA by Michelin and said that they are comparable to the Toyo but $100 less per tire. They are 20 ply and only $425 each for the 315's

That is all I need to hear is another choice. Since they are a new commercial tire (less than 2 years old) there are no reviews that I can find. However with Michelin making them, made in usa, a great name and less money he has my attention.

He said the price is lower since they are trying to get the tires out there for use and gain a reputation in this segment of the market (trucks and similar) .

Anyone hear of them? Comments?

Looks like the Toyo M144's have higher speed and load ratings.
