Yes, Toyo!

Spell check at work! I caught the change of Load range "G" to "3" earlier.

Thanks for heads up!

I get caught with the auto correct all the time, sometimes it can get VERY interesting.

KSagal's explanation of tire size specifications is correct. For example a tire specified as 275/80/22.5 is the same size regardless of who manufactures it. The attached link is an excellent tool for calculating the different dimensions of a tire. It not only gives you the diameter (Height) but also gives the width, sidewall height, and circumference all in inches. It also gives the revs/mile. Hope this helps resolve some of the confusion with trying to understand tire size specifications.

When needed, I will replace my fronts with these also.
Strange because TOYO had a prohibition against mounting their tires on a CC some years ago and it's never been rescinded. Any TOYO dealer should be aware of it.

Just remember when you change tire size you affect your speedo.

No, they no longer MARKETED or designated any tire as an RV tire. We've been running Toyos and replaced with Toyos - never a problem. Just drive in and tell them what we want, last set was 6 weeks old when we got them. Les Swab in Sutherlin, Oregon - great to work with, know how to handle RVs because of the number of parks nearby, including Timber Valley where lots of Fulltime Escapees stop when going north or south.
