Stanley,
Got a lot of miles out of a set of Hankooks on my 450...no flats, no blowouts. Just rode harder than iron.

We had a 2008 MS TK3 with the GY 114s. Drove well over 60,000 miles on them including a trip to Alaska. After 7 years felt it was time to replace them. Went with the Hankooks and had no issues. Have since traded in the 2008 for a 2017. The 2017 has the GY 114s on it. Hope all goes well with the GY 114s on our new RV.

Good luck with what ever tire replacement you go with.

You’re going to start seeing a lot of these on 7000# axles. All of the major China manufacturer’s are building them.

I seem to recall that your Michelin that suffered the tread separation was a "J" rated European designed tire. They are speed rated at 62 MPH. I think Michelin only did them on the Suites for about a year.

I emailed Michelin a number of times about that speed rating for RV service and never got an answer. I live 10 miles from Michelin of North America so I stopped-in and asked the duty expert. The answer was; "We are suspending that fitment with DRV". Nothing about why.

Your memory is pretty darn good...had 2 of them at 4 years, but the tires were not OEM with Doubletree, I installed the 17.5s and wheels.
62mph was not often exceeded with those tires, but Mich would not help when they separated.

I always thought the J rated Michelins were rated at 62 mph because of the European requirement. They wanted the same speed rating the world over. I could be wrong though.

We had the Michelins on our 2012 Select Suites and never had a problem with them. Went to Arizona and back from Texas several times, and to Iowa and back several times. I always thought they were good tires.

I used to think Michelin was the best made tire, but if you had any issue, their normal response was what did you do to cause our tire to fail? Goodyear often would replace the tire and fix the damage caused when one of their tires failed. Getting warrany on a Michelin was difficult, not impossible but normally much harder than Goodyear. That was what I found when I was weighing rigs. I ran Goodyears on the Mobile Suites and Michelin on the truck and car.
