Help. Need new tires on motor home. What brand should I purchase? Have Goodyear 8R/19.5 on 30' Pace Arrow. So many brands. So confused.

Samson  from Simpletire.com. You won't beat their price.

My buddy and I have both used this tire, he still has his coach and has over 5000 miles pulling a race car and trailer. No problems with the tires. The fellow I sold my coach to has been to the Oregon coast and to Florida from central IL. with no problems either.

Several solid choices, so just shop around your local truck tire shops and see what they offer. The Hankook AH11 is an excellent  tire in that size and reasonably priced. Bridgestone has that size too, plus your Goodyear is available as well.  Samson is a low priced brand but should be adequate as well.

225/70R19.5 is a compatible size conversion for the 8R10.5. See this article for more info:

    Put Hankooks on last year before going to Alaska....no problems at all....reasonably priced and look good.  One year later still have the same air in the tires that the dealer put in....no pressure loss on the Alaskan Hwy....Bob
