OK, changed criteria to reflect front and back tire mix's..Geez, I had read enough tire posts from the past to know this...of course, in editing the poll, it wiped out 3 or 4 folks that had already posted.. Can you do it again please..

Tnx, Mike W

Still doesn't let you choose different brands for front and back. Those should be check boxes or radio buttons grouped by front/back, for example:

Front:
° Michelin
° Bridgestone
...

Back:
° Michelin
° Bridgestone
...

Same goes for the other groups.

I'll going to just stick with whats up as far as brand and size..

Do Barth owners actually change tires for the winter..or have studded tires or..?

I don't think anybody is swapping seasonal tires, that's just Doug showing his "Canadian," eh? ROTFLMAO

There has been some discussion over the years on tires, brands, etc but not so much lately. Like you I am not sure what people are driving. Years ago we had very few foreign brands, now lots more. Lately some of the "domestic" brands ie Michelin, Bridgestone have had issues.

Keep pinging this and we'll see if we get more info. Thumbs Up

Thumbs Up Mike thanks for consolidating Thumbs Up
Sounds like you have a nice deal. Keep in mind as a Family RV Member, formerly Family Motor Coach Association, you can also get Michelin tires for your car(s).
Michelin tire deals makes the membership a bargain.

I feel a bit British to so Tyres are what I seek. I looked at the Coach Net add, Yikes even with that discount one can cut that price by at least 50% online, Discount Tire or Tire Rack.

My tyres have a lot of tread, but are bit long in the tooth! Presently I have 235/85R16 10 ply E rating.

Not wanting a rim change is there a better alternative, I did a search and a few years ago there was a bit of dispute over what to put on the P30 and my existing tyre was in the running any new thoughts???
