Lighter, better gas milage...
I wonder if a valid analogy would be: Are 2 springs of, say, 2,000lbs. compression strength more or less comfortable than 4 springs of 1,000lbs. compression strength? I'm of course assuming that we're talking about sidewall stiffness. The Michelin One has been around for 18'wheelers for about(?) 2 years now, but I've never actually seen them in use . Ride quality can be modified by several means: Shock absorbers, air bags, spring dampeners, etc. My concern would be "what happens when you lose a single "One" tire on an rv axle as opposed to losing one of a pair of duals on the same axle?". We don't have the benefit of having two axles closely spaced, as is the case with the 4 axle 18-wheelers.The tire is stiffer though (to carry the weight) so I wonder if it would be suitable for an RV, which after all is supposed to be a comfortable vehicle.
