Sure wish I could find a dealer in Central Florida that sells these tires for my Rv. Even emailed the company to ask where I could get 22.5 with no response. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

I like many others did a lot of research on tires for my MH. It came with mich.235/80/22.5 XRV's and I wasn't all that happy with these tires for many reasons. I looked at sumitomo's but in my size they were only rated at 65mph. I don't drive any faster than that but I wanted a margin for saftey. With the help of a freind that has spent his life repairing and changing truck tires(he doesn't sell tires) I went with TOYO M154 245/75/22.5 and price was not the main reason. This size is a direct replacment for the original tires.

Paulandvicki, call the service desk at Independence RV in Winter Garden Florida, there is a truck dealer in Winter Garden, I forgot his name, that installs Sumitomo's on all their used RV's. I got 6, matching the load range on my old Michelines, on my 2004 DSDP, installed & ballanced, all for $2,200.00 including all taxes. Bill

Crawford Tire in Occoee, fl. If I spelled that right. West of O town, right off the turnpike. Had 275/70 22.5's at a good price.

Speedracer, how fast to really want to go? How long would it take to stop an Rv that weights 26000 lbs? Plus you are using more gas or diesel.

The speed limit is at max wieght.. If you are under the weight rating, you can go faster.. You can put more air in and go faster too.. 10 psi over is good.

I drive 2300 RPM on my tach and that is right at 65MPH. This is what the engine likes and so do I. My 05 Dolphin 36FT. 8.1 fully loaded and pulling my seabring on a dolly with brakes averages 7.8 to 8.3 MPG at that speed.

We plan to put Sumatomo tires on our coach, as those we know who have used and tested them have been very happy. These are folks we travel with all the time, so we feel comfortable going with them.

Had them on my Safari when we first bought it, but did switch over to Toyo's. The Sumitomo's are a very popular log truck tire out here in the west.

tires

do they make a size to swap out my Mich 255/80/22.5 on my coachman sportcoach? Been looking for a month and they say 265/75/22.5 is a direct swap and some have gone to a 275/70/22.5 has anyone made the change and what size, i am concerned with the width for the spacing on the dual's. Thanks any suggestions appreciated.

My 19.5 Somos are 6 yrs old and doing fine. Tread like new as well as sidewalls, no cracks or checks anywhere. I would buy them again.
