Tires

I need new 235/80R 22.5 Michelin Tires but apparently there is no Michelin tires to be had for four to six months they tell me everywhere. The tire shops tell me I can use a 245 / 75r Goodyear does anyone have any experience or advice on this matter. I hope I'm posting this in the right spot I just started on this forum.
Thanks

I've read many bad reports of Goodyears here. I recommend Toyo's as a replacement. Have them on our coach and love them and good pricing.

We just bought a Michelin XRV tire size 235/89R 22.5 in Palmer Alaska of all places. We had a belt break (ran over a 4" diameter branch that flew of a landscapers truck) and installed the unmounted spare. Rather than go another 6 weeks without a spare we ordered one from a local dealer. The Company (Big Black Rubber) had to order it from their distributor. It took a couple days for it to arrive so we drove down to Homer. We picked the tire up on our way back through.

Personally I would stick with the Michelins. We had Goodyear's on our previous motorhome and had lots of trouble. I was always a Goodyear fan until recently. Of the 5 sets of Goodyear tires we purchased for our cars and trucks 4 sets had to be replaced for premature wear, balance issues, and broken belts.

All but the top of the line Goodyear's seem to be made in China these days. I was disappointed to say the least when I paid almost $1,000.00 for the last set of 4 Goodyear tires for my Ford truck only to find out they were made in China, and wore out in less than 25,000 miles.

The reports of bad Goodyear tires are on an old model that has been out of production for years. I personally would find a different tire dealer. The Michelins are readily available at several online vendors. They just want to sell you on something that is probably old stock for them. Goodyear, Toyo, Michelin, Hercules are all good tire brands. I ended up wit the Toyo M144's because the price and reviews seemed like the sweet spot. No matter what you buy check the date codes before you let them install the tires. Odd size rv tires are notorious for sitting in the warehouse for months and even years. You don't want anything older than 6 months out to be installed since rv tires are judged by age and not wear.

You can get the 245/75R22.5 size from several major tire manufacturers, e.g. Toyo, Sumitomo, Hankook, Bridgestone, Firestone, Goodyear, and Yokohama

The new tires will be slightly smaller in diameter. Check to see if there will be any issues with side clearance due to the extra width.

I just had a zipper blow out of a Michelin XZE 235/80 R22.5 and was told there was a 8 week backorder for the XRV's (XZE no longer made)

To get me home the only tire I could find was a Bridgestone R268 Ecopia 245/75 R22.5. It fit fine and after a good bit of research I am going to replace the other 5 on my RV with the R268. I'm done with Michelin for now. Tire was serviceable according to their published inspection data, was not overloaded, never hit anything with it and inflated properly. It exploded at 62mph. Had less than 8500 miles on it.

The substitute 245/75R22.5 is very close to your Michelins:https://tiresize.com/calculator/
only 1/2 mph slow @ 60 MPH.

I needed a tire 295/80R22.5 and Simpletire had a good price.

I called them to see if they could guarantee (or verify) that the tire I buy (and have shipped to me) would be less than two-years old.

They said they can't guarantee it and have no way to tell. They said it would "most likely" be a new tire. But I could ship the tire back at my expense if I didn't want it.

I decided to buy locally so I can view the tire (or have the sales guy look) before I buy it.
