Any issues with running Michelin XDS 2 as drive tires?



I think I found a good deal on some 225/70R19.5 F/12PR for the drive wheels on the MH. They look like a traction tire, so I imagine that they are louder then other tires.

Any feedback would be great.

Noise would be the only issue.
How's the weight rating.
I'm actually considering , traction tires for my drivers , as my coach appears to be a snow magnet. In the 5 snowbird seasons , I've owned it, I've moved my departure date forward by 5 weeks, to mid Oct. and still find snow on my route.

Sorry weight rating was the wrong term . I should have said , tire load rating compared to the originals.
Also need to consider the required rim width and dual tire spacing info.
