I have the 295/80/R22.5 m144 and am very happy.
Not sure the difference between 144 and 154.

Hi. We have them as the steer tires on our 07 Diplomat 40SKQ. Have had them for a year and they have been great. I will use them when I change the rears next year. Good luck. Mark

We have put about 12,000 miles on our 295/80R22.5 M154 tires and are very pleased, with the ride, handling, and the price.

We put a set of 6 Toyos on our 2001 Expedition DP (recently traded for a 2018 Bay Star 3124) and ran them for 10k miles with no problems. Rode well too. I would not hesitate to use them again.

Pretty sure that size is to small for your coach , it's all about the weight
a tire can safely carry .
You should have a placard in the coach somewhere , mine is on the wall
next to the drivers seat that tells you .
Your Executive is a heavy coach , heavier than my 03 Windsor and my
coach calls for 295 x 80 x 22.5 .
295 x 75 is a more popular size but will not carry as much weight
They may be trying to sell what they have in stock
Some owners install an even larger size ( 315 ) in front for a little extra capacity
plus they can run less air pressure for a better ride .
I have TOYO tires and they are great so far .

Methinks you need the 295/80-22.5 minimum. That would be the Toyo M144. https://www.toyotires.com/media/2155...ion_tables.pdf

Your front axle weight is probably over 15,000

Also make sure you get the right load rating, either H or G.

I just put Toyo M154 on our Newmar (19" wheels) and they've been great so far. They were recommended by the owner of a trucking company where I store my MH.

Hi RamiDav, I will check my manual for tire size, I am replacing with same size that is on coach. The original owner tried the 315 size and decided to remove them, on a sharp left hand turn the tire rubbed fender well, not sure if is there was a drive way dip when it happen, have not had the problem with 295's.

Hypoxia, my front axle shows 13,000 lbs., but will do some checking around, I am replacing Firestone 295/75/22.5 which are 8+ years old, tires still look new but I feel it is time to replace.

Thanks all for your reply's

Thanks for all the input, just called Les Swab and changed my order to M141 295/80R/22.5 tires, checked my ID plate and it does spec 80R for coach, big difference in max load rating, M154 75R is rated at 6,175 lbs and M141 80R is rated at 7,830 lbs, huge difference, almost same pricing.

Mhcorrigan, you may want to take another look, your Sig is also heavy.

They should be quite fresh! Every pair of Toyo 144 295/80's I've purchased, has had a build date in the last 8 weeks of the calendar year.

Checking the date codes is a must do. I ordered two Michelin 315's for steer tires and 6 Bridgestone 295's for the rear and told the dealer I wouldn't accept any tire with a date code over 6 months old. Ended up accepting the Michelins with a 9 month old date on them. Always get the 'freshest' tires you can. That means a LOT with your insurance company if you have a blowout/accident and also if you decide to sell or trade the buyer is going to bring up those old date codes again.
