Michelin XPS Rib & Bridgestone Duravis advice

Howdy, I have a '97 Rexhall Aerbus, 36', tag axle, F53 and weighs about 20K. It currently has Michelin LTX on the front and Michelin XPS ribs on the rear duallies. Would like your advice on:
1) if I replaced all of them with Michelins, are the XPS too stiff for the front axle or can I put them all around?
2) I've researched the Bridgestone Duravis and they appear to be identical to the XPS rib but less costly. Bridgestones are excellent tires. Does anyone have experience with the Duravis HD line of tires?

Thanks for your help!

I cannot speak to the quality of the Duravis, but I did just replace the front LTX's on my 1996 Winnebago Adventurer with XPS Ribs. I was also concerned about the change as the LTX's drove nicely. I found the XPS Ribs to ride even better. The coach seems to track straighter when being passed by semi's.
