It’s time to start looking at tires. Is this the current recommendation?

Just my personal experience being in the tire business. The tire I have had the most warranty issues with has been Michelin, also the first to dry rot and crack. Goodyear come in second worst. Ive had very good performance with Firestone 400 Coach tires, as well as Dunlop and Continental.
I just installed 8 new Sumitomo"s on my coach. I also have them on my jeep. I have had excellent experiences with Sumitomo tires,and since im a distributor for them I also get great pricing, which helped with my decision. My brother who has owned and operated several trucking companies swears by them.

I've had the same experience with Michelin. Installed Cooper Roadmasters last year. Half the price and excellent so far.
