Tire question

Looking for an opinion. I have 2005 Fleetwood Expedition with 670 Goodyear tires. Looking at the Bridgestone R250ed tire. My tire size is 275/70 22.5. I assume that my tire size will limit my choices and I really do not want to change my tire size. Any input will be helpful.

I have Bridgestone R250's on my rear duals and R280s on the front. I doubt there is a nickel's worth of difference in Bridgestones, Michelin, Toyo, and several others. There has been a lot of bad press, about Goodyear 670s, on these forums. My previous MH had them and not one problem in 50,000 miles.

The 275/70 22.5 tire is a very common one. It shouldn't limit you at all.

Hi expedition1,
The tire size mentioned is not as common as one would like. I have the same tire size as you. Almost all the major brands make a tire in the 275X70X22.5 size. Timing is everything. Dealers will, most likely, not have them in stock. If the distribution center does not have them then you are out of luck until the manufacturer make another run. This could be months. I have Michelin's on my coach. Michelin make 275X70 in a couple of different tires. This means you do have a choice. Michelin makes :
XZA2 Energy
in our tire size.
