New 22.5 inch Tires

Believe I need to look at 6 new tires this year, any suggestions on a good deal. I'm in Ontario but heading south in a month, towards Texas.

We just had ours replaced at Spartan Chassis in Charlotte, MI. They were very polite and timely in getting it done. Plus we had the coach aligned while there also. Well worth the money that alignment was.

Our tires are 275/80R22.5. We had new Michlein XZA3's installed. We were told that there was a price increase in the works very soon. Might want to go ahead and lock something in somewhere if you can.

Hi Commander: It looks like we are in the exact same situation with the same motorhome, except we are on the Ford chassis. My 235-80/22.5 Michelins were built in October of 2003. They have 50,000 Km on them and they still have good tread depth and absolutely no sidewall cracking or tread grouve cracks. I park on hard packed gravel at home and keep the tires covered when not in use. However they will be 8 years old this summer so I too am thinking I need to replace them. I will probably go with Michelins again. Is there any market for the used tires I will take off? What would be a fair asking price for used tires?

Toyos are good and not as expensive as some.

I recently replaced my 275/80 - 22.5 Michelin's with Toyo's. Seem to get a much better ride.Toyo's are certainly worth looking at.

If you are coming anywhere close to Houston, try Riverside Tire in Sealy (50 miles west of Houston on I-10). I replaced my Michelin 235/80 R22.5 with Toyo 245/75 R22.5 about 6 months ago, out the door with six brand new (BOD < 1 month) for $1800. They cannot do alignments but boy do they move a lot of tires. I am very happy with my Toyos.

On my second set of Toyo's, and am very pleased with performance. They were significantly less money than Michelin or Goodyears. Cost for six 255 x 22.5 R70 was less than $1900.00 including tax, mounting and balancing.

Tires

Michelin uses a different size system than anyone else, that is why you change sizes. You want the same load ratting and the rolling diameter to be as close as possible to the old tires so the revs per mile is about the same. Michelin says their tires shoud be good for 10 years if ample tread and no fatigue cracks are found. Other brands have much shorter time recomendations because most their tires go on trucks, not motorhomes, and the miles add up quicker. Does anyone have a recomendation for where to find Toyo's in South Florida? there are no truck stores in our area, no truck stops, not even anywhere to air up motorhome tires over 60 psi. Thanks, DACOTAH

4 Corner Tires in or around pompano beach. I believe they do truck tires, they had a lot in stock. If not they whole sale truck tires to installers so they may be able to send you to an installer. They hooked me up for tires on my VW, Toyos for the best price I could find in 50 miles.

Google results, first link

I needed two new tires for the front due to front end problems. I decided to stick with the Michelins because the rears are still in very good shape. After doing some calling around locally, I ordered/bought 2@ 235-80R-22.5 XRVs from Sam's Club for $321.48 ea. and after 6% ST, they came to $683.66. I then had a local truck tire/repair shop mount/computer balance and install them. Glen's charged less to mount and balance than the tires stores would have charged with buying the tires from them. Anyway, I saved just a tad over $200 doing it this way. Costco may be another resource. Bob

The 235/80 R22.5 are unique to Michelin, the 245/75 R22.5 work out to be the closest match to the original 235/80s. They are a little wider but not enough to violate the minimum spacing for the rear duals. An added benefit is that most truck tire shops either carry or can get the Toyo M154s quickly. Riverside Tire got my 6 new tires in one day, try that with a Michelin 235/80.
