Costco/sam's club tire shopping

A friend & neighbor is needing to put a new set of 295/75R-22.5 G or H rated tires on his 38' 1999 Dynasty DP, so we went shopping at Sam's Club & Costco. We also shopped the 11R size. 11Rs are about 1" taller(41" vs 40") than a 295/75. Here are the deals we made note of.

Michelin XZE2 11R-22.5 G rated $471 + 8.125% local sales tax
Michelin XZE2 11R-22.5 H rated $497 + 8.125% local sales tax

Firestone FS507 Plus 295/75R-22.5 G rated $433 + 8.125% local sales tax
Firestone FS507 Plus 295/75R-22.5 H rated $452 + 8.125% local sales tax
Firestone FS507 Plus 11R-22.5 G rated $441 + 8.125% local sales tax

The installer will mount & spin balance the new tires for free if my neighbor gives him the 9 yr old R299 Bidgestones w/40k miles that he's taking off because of their age, not wear.

We hope this helps

The 11R is a suitable replacement for a 295/80 but kind of big for a 295/75. Will throw the speedometer and odometer off because the revolutions per mile are different. I suspect you will find about a 3% difference.

If they can get Bridgestone for you, they have an excellent assortment of 295/75 tire models. Goodyear too.

I have a 2001 38 ft Dynasty model 38PBS, and the recommended tires are 295/75R22.5 tires, load range H, which came with GoodYear G357 tires. I replaced the tires on my rig 3 years ago and I installed Bridgestone R280 tires that are Load Range H (16 ply), 40.3 diameter and 516 rev/mile. These tires have performed GREAT with a smooth, stable and quiet ride.

I gave serious consideration to buying the larger 295/80R22.5 but I did like the the reduced clearance in the wheel well area since the larger tires were of a bigger diameter, plus the fact of having a somewhat inaccurate speedometer reading.

With the weight of the 38 ft Dynasty I would definitely recommend the Load Range H tires, or you likely will be overloaded considering the RV being fully loaded with gear and people.

In addition, I would suggest to make absolutely certain that the tires are steel belted tread and sidewalls as there are some large tires out there that don't meet both scenarios. Also suggest having the tires spin balanced and that can be do e without having weight attached to the outside of the nice polished Alcoa aluminum wheels.

Hope this helps
