just an observation...but I noticed the other day at a local area high end luxury coach shop, that most of the really expensive long haul Coaches all had Michelin brand tires on them including both front, rear and tag. Some of these coaches were well over a million dollars plus in cost.. Might be something here with Michelin brand tires on so many high end expensive rigs...

We have 3+ yr old Michelin XZE 11Rx22.5 H rated 16 ply tires on the steer axle of our 98 Signature. They have 17k+ miles on them. We like them just fine.

We have 1 yr old Michelin XZA3s 275x80-22.5 H rated 16 ply on the steer axle of our 98 DSDP. They are 1 yr old with 3k miles. We like them too.

Costco & SamsClub sell 22.5 Michelin tires for around $500 ea + tax, but can't mount or balance them. Take'm to a truck stop.

Regional tires have tougher sidewalls that take hittin curbs better than highway tires. This could be a good thing!

We hope this helps

Don

Hey bachler,
Now you are becoming a real pain... Do you KNOW anything useful you can tell us about the Michelin XZE2+ Commercial tire in size 295R80/22.5? If so I would appreciate your input. However, I have no reason to seek your stories concerning your (or those you may know) experience with tire failures.

As I said earlier, anyone can have a tire failure with any manufacturer, anywhere, anytime. I don't care and am not interested in reading through your posts to this thread UNLESS you would like to add some specific knowledge regarding the suitability of the Michelin XZE2+ in Motorcoach service with a loaded weight of 33,000 pounds... (and yes, the coach is rated for 33,000 pounds).

If you just want to share your general experiences, please start your own thread and have a ball.

Thanks for your input. It confirms what other members are saying, and I am sure my buddy has decided to purchase the XZE2+.

Don,
Thank you for your input. Looks like the XZE2+ is a good tire for the application. I spoke with my buddy last night and he is going to go with them. I put XZA2 Energy in 295R80/22.5 on my '04 Travel Supreme in February of this year, and we have put more than 11,000 miles on them while traveling between all four corners of the U.S. They have been outstanding and show no visible wear. We are allowing them to "vacation" for the winter months in deep South Texas.

I see that this thread is pretty old now, but FWIW we have had Michelin 295/80R22.5 XZE2+ tires on our rig for about 24,000 miles now, since July 2008. They give a smooth, comfortable ride, and there is not yet any sign of wear.

The coach weighed 34,100# last time I scaled it.
