Replaced the Chinese tires on my cruiser when i bought it 2 years ago with BF Goodrich 235/85's and all has been well until I got a factory recall notice this week - now those tires cannot be found

Discount tire recommends replacing with Yokahoma's of the same size - anyone have any experience with yokahoma's or have any recommendations

tks

As long as they were LT tires and a highway tread and not all terrain I would think they would be fine.

The local Discount Tire store has ordered replacement BFGs for my fiver, should be here in a few weeks. They told me I would have to pay the cost difference if I switched brands. I can afford to wait right now, but if they don't get the replacement BFGs, I'll ask them to cover the difference. Probably go with Ribs if that happens.

Yokahoma's they are very good tires, I got them truck & cars you would be happy with them they are a little pricey but it is worth the price good luck.

Interesting - Discount Tire here indicated that all i would have to pay would be $20 per tire for the road hazard warranty - they said that BFG had not manufactured enough tires to accomodate the recall so there's no telling how long it would take to get replacements from BFG
