Hi Larry and welcome to the forum!

You'll get a lot of opinions about this and we have a lot of tire experts here so you should be hearing from some of them soon.

I have Michelins on my rig. I've been happy with them. 40000 miles and they don't even seem to show any wear or sun checking. They're not cheap but do seem to be pretty popular with members of this forum.

Best of luck...

Rick

295/80 is a size that is not widely used in commercial trucking, so the choice of manufacturers is very limited. That means EXPENSIVE!!

Consider changing to 11R22.5, which is nearly identical in all dimensions but has slightly less load capacity. I changed my rears to 11R22.5 and saved $250/tire versus a Goodyear or Michelin 295/80. The load capacity is plenty for my 20,000 lb rear axle. I stayed with Goodyear G670 on the front, where I still need the slightly higher load capacity because it is a 13,600 lb axle.

I have a Freightliner with the ZF front end and Meritor rear axle, built to American Coach specs. Clearance was not an issue because the measurement specs on the Continental 11R22.5 LRH are all but identical to the OEM Goodyear G670 295/80 LRH. There is only one rev/mile difference in size. Dual spacing is 12.5" vs 13.2".
