Tire replacement for Michelin 235/80R 22.5G

Our 2015 Thor Miramar 32.1 came with Michelin 235/80R 22.5G tires. This particular size seems to be available only in RV dealerships. Have any of you replaced these tires with different, more widely available tire size? If so, what size and what brand?

Unfortunately that size is unique to Michelin. If you want to stay with the size a tire dealer should be able to order them rather than an RV service center.

What else to use? I favor the secondary brands such as Sumitomo, Kelley or Toyo over Goodyear or Michelin. 255/75R x 22.5 is pretty close but slightly taller and wider while 245/75 might be a closer fit. Shop around and use this size comparison to see what the differences are.

Wheel well clearance and adequate separation for the rear dullys can be critical.
