You should double check your tire size. I believe you have 275/80R22.5. When changing tire size, the 2 important issues are:
1. Physical size. There must be clearance in the wheel well and the duel spacing needs to be ok on the drive axle. Also if a bigger tire is compatable with your wheel width.
2. Load range needs to be adequate for your weight.

Your biggest gain would be if you can use 295/80 size. You would be able to reduce psi quite a bit, if that is your goal. If the 11R size will work it is more widely available than the metric sizes.

I would certainly stay with the original manufacturer sizing. There are too many discussions here on brand preferences to discuss once again. Check out the search engine (google) top right side of the home page there will be pages and pages of recommendations. FYI if a FMCA member you can receive a discount on Michelins.
