Tire Information for your 22.5"

Hey All, like many I had the Michelin 235/80R22.5 XRV's on my 98 tradewinds. I made a little excel sheet to compare cost and other variables for a suitable replacement. thought some of you may find it useful.


I ended up going with the hankooks AH12's

Funny, I had a spreadsheet similar to your when we were looking for new tires last year!

Are the prices shown including mounting, balancing, disposal and taxes and other fees? I only see one entry for mounting and that is under the TOYO brand.

BTW, I went with Bridgestone Tires.

Price was for tires only, i did the install myself in the driveway, i used beads for balancing. By the way, i was happy to get these replaced because the date code show 2 tires 2002, 4 tires 2005. :-/

I do all of my own maintenance, and I have removed the wheels from our coach, replaced wheel hub seals, but I've never attempted to do what you have done! Wish I was there with you to learn a new skill!

I use a torque multiplier and a wheel dolly. Best investment I made in a long time. The torque multiplier is a great tool for those really stubborn bolts on my tractor also.
