Alternatives to 235/80/p22.5

We just bought our first Class A (2005 Coachmen Cross Country 372ds). We need to replace all the tires, which we knew when we bought it.
In looking for tires, my husband noticed only Michelin is showing to make this particular size. We contacted our tire guy and this is the only RV tire he can get as well.
Are there other brands out there or other alternative sizes that won't affect the operation that much? What about the Hankook ah12 255/70/r22.5?

Thanks in advance!!

Use this ( https://www.tacomaworld.com/tirecalc) to compare tire sizes.

To answer your question I have read on various posts on the forums of tire sizes being changed. You just have to check your clearances (especially the spacing between your rear duals) to be sure everything is okay. Also it may affect your speedometer reading.

We switched from the 275/80/22.5 to the 295/75/22.5. Different size but same issue. The tire dealer recommend that we consider this common size. The rear tire spacing, which is critical, is a good 2 inches and the additional tread width is noticeably better up front for handling and cornering. The tire comparison website backed up the dealers claims that the other parameters are negligible.

My original tire's when purchased were Michelin 235/80/R22.5. My RV now has Toyo 255/70/R22.5 & these are Load Range H which gives you a higher load capacity (Toyo M122). I purchased 4 in January 2015 for $310 +tax + tire fee. This RV has had Toyo tire's for 11years.
