Alternative tire sizes

We are looking at buying our first MH and it is a 2006 Itasca Suncruiser 37B. The tires on this coach are original and show some checking. Our plan is to replace all 6 but I am hoping to find an alternative to the expensive Michelin brand. The size is 235/80R 22.5. What other size/brand would be acceptable for the coach?

Recently discussed here: **Has Anyone Found Replacement for MICH XRV 235x80x22.5 tires???**

There are direct replacement tires, the 235/80 is a Michelin size, but 245/75- from several manufacturers, has basically the same dimensions and load capacity (about 4600# max). The 275/70 tires are a load range higher (about 6900# max) and except for a wider tread, have almost the same dimensions..

Suggest to check Michelin pricing via FMCA program. Typically cheapest you will find and donw through quality Michelin authorized truck/RV dealers.

Check out Toyo tires. Excellent tires and less expensive than Michelin.

I just tried the FMCA program. It is very simple. The price per tire they quoted me was $378.52 per tire. This is for the 235x80Rx22.5XRV. The dealer I went through charges 20.00 per tire to mount and balance.

That is the best deal I have found and trust me I have checked everywhere!

I just purchased 2 Toyo M122 255/70R22.5 tires & was surprised to see they're " Made in China". The Toyo's they replaced M120Z were made in the USA in 2004.
