Michelin just came out (Apr this year) with a new tire, the X-Line Energy-Z to replace the XZA-3 line. I had these new tires, date coded 1416, and made in their Canada plant, installed end of Apr this year and love them so far.

Just a thought to throw into a difficult process, consider 295/75 R22.5. They are 20mm wider and the other spec differences are miniscule. Plug in the tire sizes on TireComparison.com. I initially replaced our Michellin XZA'S with the XZA2. Did not like the ride or noise, and the rolling resistance was very unimpressive. My options narrowed down again to the X line in the 275/80 (extra $$) or Toyo M177 in the 295/75. Both are rated "smartway" tires. With the Toyo now on the coach we have a very nice ride using 100psi, the sweet spot recommended by Les Schwab. I personally like the feel of the wider tire up front, and the lack of rolling resistance is night and day from the XZA2. Good luck.
