There are several GCR tire centers around that area. They are owned by Bridgestone, which is a good motor home tire but they carry other brands as well.

I replaced the Goodyear 270/75R22.5 last year with Firestone FS560's. While not as quite as some other tires, they are good for the lack of paved roads we have here. I got a good deal from a local dealer at just over $2500.00. Sure made a difference on how the MH handles.
No matter where you get your tires, DO NOT go cheap, it will cost more in the long run.

Bought our tires at Sam's Club. Michelin XRV 22.5s. We then had a local truck tire dealer install with all new valve stems and computer balanced them. This worked well and saved us about $125.00 from area dealers on the two front tires. I understand CostCo has about the same savings but you do have to special order the tires at both. Bob

BTW, both tires were less than 2 months from manufacture.

Sorry, I missed the Florida part. Might want to find a local 'Discount Tire' dealer in your area...they're all over the place. Should be able to do better at an actual tire dealer as opposed to an RV dealer. Bob

Call TCI Orlando, they are good to work with and do great work on RV tires--not all shops want to touch RVs. There's a TCI in Tampa, but I didn't go with them, even though I live near by.

If you want Michelins, join the Monaco RV Club, Beavers are part of the Monaco family.

Look at the Michelin deal via FMCA. I was astounded by the improvement in ride between the Goodyear G670's and the Michelin XZA2 Energy tires.

Some other brands you could choose and probably save some $$:

Continental
Bridgestone
Kumho
Yokohoma
Toyo
Hankook

I know Continental has a 275/70R22.5 and I'm sure some of the others of these quality manufacturers will have your size and they are generally priced below Goodyear and Michelin. Shop around.

In Florida, try Callaghan Tire or GCR Tire Centers - they both handle large tire sizes for medium and heavy trucks and coaches.

When buying tires, be sure and look at the manufacture date. I bought a MH two years ago. The seller said that he had new tires installed. They looked new but the manufacture date was six years old. They had been in the warehouse that long. On most MH the tires age out before wearing out. Also are you looking for drive wheel tires or steering tires. There is a difference.
