Walmart recently had the Toyos in a compatible size for a super price of $250 each. I would check Walmat.

Looking around, I’ve found Michelin is the only one so far that makes 235 80s 22.5. Wonder why that is and can I go with a 235 75r? I appreciate your comments. These things are expensive.

If memory serves, the Toyo 245-75 22.5 have the same height, and about .25" wider. That's what we went with on our MH to replace the Michelins....

Depending on your weight you might need 265s

This is a good website to check physical sizes

I think Michelin makes these oddball tires so you buy their products. We have always switched to Toyos and have been very happy.

I've been running Bridgestone tires on our first and current coach since 1995 with zero issues. In so far as your tires are the weakest link between your coach and the pavement, I don't mind spending the extra $$$ on high quality tires.

Good luck with your choice and safe travels...[emoticon]

You must put s lot of miles on a 2017 rig to need new tires in 2019.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

JS that works out to 200+ miles/day over 2 years. You may be the first RVer (are you RVing?) to wear out a set of Michelin tires.
