I think you will find that ONLY Michelin makes an RV tire in that size. However, other brands do make a 255/75R22.5, which is apparently really close to the Michelin. You should verify the "dual spacing" is still OK before changing to any other brand or size.

A quick search here will likely yield multiple threads on this subject.

I just put on Toyo's 245/75R/22.5 replacing aged out Michelins 235/80R/22.5. Same "type" of RV tire. Same warranty nation wide. Found that Michelin is the ONLY tire maker that uses 235/80R. Toyo's were mounted, balanced and out the door at $800 cheaper than the Michelin. So far so good.

Here is what I did in lieu of purchasing the proprietary 235 Michelin tires. To date I am pleased with my choice and money saved.

Changed My Tire Size

I had a friend in the RV business recommended Sumitomo and I'am happy with them, NJ to California and a few trips to Florida, ect,ect . Oh ya did I mention they were a lot less $$$. Got them from a truck tire dealer in Phily.

Call the Michelin Factory in SC and ask them about their inventory.
