235/80/22.5 tires

I currently have these tires on my 2010 Holiday Rambler 34SBD and need to replace. The tires that are currently on are michelins and I need to replace them. I am in ontario and willing to go to michigan to replace them but not sure what to start to look at. Michelin seems to be the only one with this size. Is anyone running a slightly different size to open up other options?

245/75R22.5 is a "close enough" size made by several other tire manufacturers. I have always stuck with the OE Michelin XRV tires, and never had a problem. First set came off at 70,000 miles and current coach has 42,000 on them as well. If you are a member of FMCA, or join, they have a tire program that can save you a bunch of $$.

I had no troubles with my original Michelin 235/80x22.5's so started to replace them by installing 2 new ones on the front thru FMCA. In 18 months one developed a vertical bulge on the side wall. I though this would be covered by Michelin 5 year defect warranty.
On my way back home I stopped at 3 Michelin dealers that had no stock but all said it was unlikely Michelin would replace it. All said Michelin will say " Michelin does not make defective tires" and I caused the problem. A dealer at home removed tire , couldn't determine the cause, sent it to the Michelin Customer Care center where they have had it 6 months now.
It was now time to replace the rear tires so I went with Toyo's 245/75x22.5's and chose them not only for the good price and high customer satisfaction, but because I believe Michelin is not interested in backing up their tires.

I am installing Toyo M154 245/75R22.5

I have heard good things and they are much better priced, can get a whole set of 6 for under 2000. Will have installed locally.

Here is what I did when it came time to replace my aged out Michelin 235s. To date I am pleased with the brand and size change I made.

Changed My Tire Size

tireeasy or simple tire sell them for under $300/tire. I went with bridgestone R250Fs. Glad to be rid of the michelin junk. Gave them amble care, storage... yet they still failed well short of the 10yr mark. The Bstones were $100/cheaper. No need to join anything either. And free roadside.

Here in Ontario the Bridgestone R250 are $488 plus taxes including installation. I have not had a chance to price the Toyo's yet. Does anyone know where I can have tires installed in Michigan if I were to buy them online?

Be sure that any size tire you consider has a load capability equal to or greater than your original size.

i replaced 2 of my 235s because of road hazard they only had 11000 mi on them.called all around and was told anywhere from 3 to 6 months.so i called ford they got me 2 at the best price and in 1 wk.i think that tire size is only for the f53 and they have control over them

ktmbadboys, I got my Toyo's in the US form Simple Tire $286/each(4) then paid for shipping to the Manitoba border. Picked them up with RV on the way home from 8 week trip in the US so there was no taxes. Tires Easy.ca wants almost as much to ship 4 Toyo's to Manitoba than 4 Toyo's cost to buy from Simple Tire. Plus TiresEasy.ca want $660/tire for Toyo's.
So defiantly check in Michigan , try the tire dealer Finder on Simple Tires web site.

Being in Canada you might look into Sailun 255/70/22.5 . I have been happy with them, they are well priced and common in Canada.
