Time to change tires and do not want to held to just a certin brand. Has anyone useed a different size tire in place of the 235-80r-22.5 ones or do I have to stay with this size. Have read about tires too close to each other and many other things I am no tire expert and would like to know if any other size would work and not have me making changes.Thanks and this is a greaqt site. Ken

Changed mine to yokohama 255 70 22.5. Nearly the same size. Saved a bunch of money over michelin.

My previous DP came with 235/80 and I replaced them with 275/70 22.5 with no issues. I got very good service from Hankook AH-12's

235/80R22.5 is a Michelin size, closest common size by other manufacturers is 245/75R22.5- I switched my 235/80 to 275/70R22.5, tires were a load range higher did not require adjustment for speed.
Compare any tire you are interested in using this calculator to determine diameter and number of revolutions per mile:
235/80-R22.5 vs 275/70-R22.5 Tire Comparison - Tire Size Calculator
Most tire manufacturers will list minimum dual spacing.

Yes I changed my tire size and brand also when my 235's aged out. See my write up at link below
