Tires for Safari Zanzibar

I own a 2002 32 foot Zanzibar. Current tires are Michelin 2255/70R-22.5 that are now showing sidewall checking so it's time for replacements.

Do any of you have recommendations for replacements? Can you recommend good tire dealers? I'm in the Seattle area.

Recommend Toyo tires. I have a 98 Serengeti and have always used Toyo's and they perform well, and best price.
Do you have Les Schwab Tire Shops in your area? If so they typically have Toyo tires.

Yes, there are Les Schwab dealers in the area. Any suggestions on the best Toyo tire model for my rig?

I run Michelin XRV tires. Always have for many, many years. Never have had a problem. That said, I weigh my coach religiously and my axles and load my coach accordingly. My last set of XRVs provided 10 years of outstanding use to me.

I installed Toyo M120z model tires on my 38ft Serengeti. They are all position tires and load ranage H.
