Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings based on a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The model takes into account factors including the age of a rating, whether the ratings are from verified purchasers, and factors that establish reviewer trustworthiness.
Bought these to replace my 2 aging Michelin XRV front tires on my 2005 Workhorse chassis as they were $200 less (each!) expensive than the Michelins. I think that Michelin makes a great tire, but I have also occasionally bought Toyo brand tires over the years for various cars and found them to work well. After doing some web research and reading about others who have switched to Toyo (and been very satisfied) on their RV I decided to go for it. Had to get a sightly different size (the XRV were 235/80 22.5 - these Toyo are 245/75 22.5") but in comparing specs the diameters are within 1/16" of each other, the load ratings and tire pressures are exactly the same, and the Toyo tires weigh a few pounds more - meaning there is more material used in their construction.
And - the date code on the Toyos I received are both 1919 - meaning they were produced in May of 2019 - hard to get much newer than that!
As for driving - I took the opportunity to upgrade my front suspension to Koni shocks, Sumo springs and Centramatic auto balancing rings - but these tires are smooth and so far all is good!
Followup - January 2020 - Have put almost 5,000 miles on these, driving across the country. Quiet & smooth (at least for my RV application). No issues at all - they just work well. Extremely satisfied. BTW - I always check the air pressures in my tires every travel day to ensure no problems or leaks. I also spray with 303 Aerospace Protectant to help protect against UV deterioration.
