Bridgestone tires

I posted on the National forum a question about Bridgestone tires. I need 6 tires. Existing are Michelin 235-80 22.5. I understand they are the only maker of this size. The local GCR dealer has priced a set the next size larger. I would like some comments on the merits of Bridgestone - good, bad, in between.

What was your primary buying decision? Price, availability, performance, etc. ???

Remember that with RV tires, normally they will die of old age and rot before you run the tread off them.

Been running them now for 5 years on all six 22.5" positions.

They run smooth, stay round, are quiet and wear well. Previously had Toyo which did the same.

Tire opinions by motor home owners are only as good as their personal experiences, which may not be predictive of your experience with the same brand tires.
