Default Tire Tread Style Recommendations

I have a few tires that are coming due. We are debating what tread style to go with. Should I stick with the highway tread and save my ears or go with all terrain style tread?

Any Advice?

How and where you drive your coach would determine what tread style to go with. The long-haul are designed for highway miles, the regionals are made with a thicker side wall if you occasionally hit curbs and the traction tires are designed for traction off road. If you've never been stuck I personally would narrow the choice to long-haul and regional.

Jon, Summed it up very well and I would take advantage of the Michelin Tire Advantage Program to save yourself some $$$$$$.
