It's not a question of matching the tire, but only that it fits the wheel properly (get it's size specs.) and is within the load range or greater. In fact just weighing the coach and checking a tire inflation chart would tell you that much. If me, I would make sure the wheel and wheel well would take the tire I chose and would go as large as possible, so as not having to run high tire pressures for improved handling and ride.

Ok with all the info received confirmed the replacement tire for the 235/80 RV tire is a 245/75 commercial truck tire. Called another dealer who sells Toyo and some other brands and got a price everything included drive them out the door $2300 for all 6 Toyo. Also did some research through the trucking industry and the Toyo is rated as high as the Michelin through out the industry. Needless to say I have and appointment next Wed.
Thanks for all the info and help.

I might pay you to check the prices available through the FMCA / Michelin program. I bought 6 tires of the same size in May of 2013. My total cost for the tires was $2477.73 inclding all taxes. Labor to mount, balance and install was $324.42. That put me out the door for a grand total of $2802.15. The work was done through a Michelin Commercial dealer here in my area.

I did miss your post until after I had posted mine. Sounds like you got a good deal. The deal I got last year was the best I could find in my area, even better than quotes I got for Toyo. Hope you have many trouble free miles.
