I need to replace the tires on my coach(2000 Monaco Diplomat 38D). I want to use 275/70/22.5 Goodyear G670RV tires, but none are available in my areaA(Atlanta)because they've been on strike for 6 months. My tire guy has recommended Yokohama's as a good alternative. He tells me that the Michelins in the closest size(275/80/22.5s) are only load range G and I want a load range H. Would appreciate any feedback or other recommendations on this.

Don't know about Yokohama's, but we had Toyo's on our previous coach, and they were great. Have GoodYear's now, and they also ride very well. You may be able to check around to see if some other tire shop has the GoodYear's? If not I would go for Toyo's. JMO

I fully agree, you want H's not G's. Toyo no longer supports the sales of motor home application tires. Have the Michelin dealer order them for you.

Michelin builds a 275/70r22.5 as well. Sounds like he wants to sell what he has rather than ordering what you need.

michelin 275/70r22.5

If you actually find someone with the Goodyears in stock be sure to double check the DOT codes. I would be very, very surprised if you found the goodyears anywhere.

I have Michelin XZE2+ 275/70R/22.5 load range J tires. Got about 20K miles on them. They are very smooth riding. They show no wear yet (I'm sure there is some wear)! I would buy these tires again.

Thanks Gary. Do you mind sharing where you bought them and what the price per tire was?

TIA!

I do not have a price. Michelin replaced my original tires for being out of round. The shop information is:
The Tire Centers
357 Pike Road
West Palm Beach, Florida 33411
561-792-3900
The shop is located at exit 97 on the Florida Turnpike. Ask for Rickey Griggs, he is the manager. He is a true Southern gentleman. Mention my name. No I don't get any $s, it's just that he went through he!! for me to get my tires replaced. Since he is part of Michelin and been in the tire business forever, he knows who to contact at Michelin to get results. His technicians have skill and know what they are doing with regard to truck tires. I was impressed. The shop is as neat and clean as most kitchens. The technicians are neatly dressed and well mannered. My coach was the smallest rig on the lot! They have a truck tire spin balancing machine with a lift that puts the tire on the machine. This place is owned by Michelin. It is their authorized truck tire service center in this area.

My menory says the retail price was around $430/tire, OTD.
