I've posted before about my friend that managed a large fleet of heavy duty trucks, including OTR and logging trucks in Washington. He always specified Toyo tires for their durability and value.
What size are your Toyo M154. I can't find a 275/70/22.5 on their web site.

Alpines use the 295 size.

Right, I have 295/75R22.5 on my Alpine. My Gulfstream had 245/75R22.5.

I sure hope you don't really think the RV or Auto manufacturers are selecting the finest/safest components available because they are worried about you...

Another option to consider is the BFG 230. The size is different, 275 80 225. A bit narrower. It is a direct replacement for the 295. I pulled off my BS R260's and was not unhappy with the switch.

Found out that Toyo doesn't make a 275/75/22.5 tire.

I wish I had a option for another tire just to look at. But there is not a tire that matches the weight requirement that I need. Had to use the Michelins.

What load range tire do you need? My Toyo tires are 16 ply rated, load range "H".

The Toyo's meet that requirement. Click on the link I provided above.

Yes, they do now.

Not a year and a half ago when I bought tires.
