Toyo 22.5 tires

Does anyone have any experience with Toyo tires in the 22.5 size for use on a class A MH?

They were original equipment on my coach. I aged them out and they had 50,000+ miles on them. I thought they were ar good tire.

22.5 Toyo's

Hello
Yes I installed 22.5 Toyo Tires on my 2004 Journey 36G. Balenced with beads rather than spin balenced. I continue to have steering challenges on pavement with wheel depressions on them as well as gusty days. Can't say for sure its tires. Wheel alignment is good, installed safety plus, tried different air pressures, still not satisfied at the moment.

I have Toyo's also. I have about 8k miles on them and I like them. Make sure they are the correct load range for your application. For example the 295/75 22.5 don't have the same weight rating as the same size Goodyear or Michelin.

We got almost 70,000 miles on our Toyos M-147. Replaced with the same. Good tire, ~ 7 yrs before we changed them.

My Windsor came with the Goodyears G670's. The Goodyears were terrible, so I put 2 new Toyo's on the front and they are still going. I would recommend them very highly with only Michelin above them.

I had them on my 36 DP. They were 750 dollars cheaper than Mich or Goodyears, so we tried them. We Hated them. They rode hard, harsh ride. No matter the pressure every crack was like crossing a big expansion joint. The TOYOS are truck tires. Built very heavy, tough tire. On a truck I've been told they last 50 to 80 thousand miles. But, we thought the ride suffered. Changed them out after 6000 miles to Goodyear 670's.

We have put well over 100k miles on Toyos on our OTR trucks, they are very good tires. However, they are very rigid sidewall(which we needed on the trucks) but that does not lend itself to the best ride. Michelins have an rv formula for their motorhome tires that allows the sidewalls to flex more for a softer ride, and they cost considerably more. The Toyos will work fine and are long lasting but will likely ride a little rougher. Your decision but you can save a lot of money. all just my opinion.

I had Michelin XRV tires on my 2006 Journey and with only 16000 miles on them I had to replace because of severe sidewall cracking. I went with the Toyo M 154, 265/75R 22.5 tires and find that they have a slightly stiffer ride than the Michelin XRV's. The Toyo's were quite a bit cheaper than a set of Michelin's but the difference in ride is barely noticeable.

We have 3.5 years on our Toyo's still have great tread depth, show little wear no sidewall problems. Only issue is inflated too coach and tire recommended pressure the ride is a bit stiff. Our coach is loaded to the max rating could have a lot to do with the ride. However have just recently improved the suspension with Henderson Drive line products, great add on. Summary no problems, happy!

Clayobx, If you haven't already done it, get a four corner weight of your rig and set the tire pressures according to the Toyo Inflation Table. You should notice a big difference in the ride.

Sammie,

The link you gave goes to the Light truck tables. If you are talking about Class A motorhomes, especially DPs and 22.5 (as the OP is) then you need to be looking at the Medium Commercial truck tables located here.
