Windsor Tires

Not a problem yet with our GoodYear G-391E, 295/80/22.5 LR-H tires except they're 7yrs old. Got them in the Monaco/Goodyear "Non-Recall Recall". Anyone with older Windsors knows what I'm referring to. This is the same size tire as on Dynastys, Execs and Sigs. Looking for new tires and having problems. Toyo's come in a 12R/22.5, GY's come in the 295 designation G-670s but they both have problems. They can according to web-site stats can only be used on 9" rims. I contacted both by e-mail and got a response from Toyo only, imagine that. True most older Country Coaches the heavier Monacos ran these tires on 8.25" rims but they, Toyo, won't warrant them anymore.
It's looking like the only option for that size is coming down to the Michelin XZA2-Energy. No problem with that except the prices. Boy are they proud of them.
I've looked at the other brands/ sizes, 11R/22.5s, 275/80s etc., none of these can carry the load that the 295/80s can. I'd be back to what we had with the original tires, not enougy tire.
Curious what others with have done.

Dave like you I recently had to buy new tires for our 2000 dynasty 40' 2 slide and had used Toyo tires before with good results, I ended up with 11R 22.5 Dunlop tires for a lot of reasons but the main reason is if I have problems any where in the US or Canada these tires are available at all GoodYear tire stores without a special order, they are made by GoodYear. With our coach loaded with 125 gal of fuel, 100 gal of water and my wife and I all our stuff the tire pressure is at 100 psi rear and 105 psi front and that is a little bit high on the pressures than required. The price on the Dunlop was over $1600 but under $1800 cant remember the exact price and this was mounter and ballanced also sold my old tiress except 2 that had cracked sidewalls for $100 each so ending price below $1400 out the door. These tires seam to ride and wear as good as the Toyo's did. I would buy them again!
