Jerichorick, Thanks for info but Toyo M 154 H Load won’t carry my front axel weight of 14,320 lbs otherwise it was a good deal. Your 2011 has a lower axel weight. I’m looking at tires with 7,160 Load capacity. GY has a new line of tires called Endurance that could do the job, they cost about $400 each.The specs are almost the same as the Tokyo’s.

Will carry 6610# per tire. That's 13220# for your front axle max load. Well beyond your axle spec. https://www.toyotires.com/commercial...-position-tire
I have the 295/75/R22.5 146/143L on my coach. No problems. Better ride than the old Michelin's.

On the info sticker next to drivers seat it states front axel 14,320 and rear axel 20,000 total GVWR. 34,320 lbs so I’m not taking any chances of a front end blowout and going with the 7,160 H Load tire.

Later Journeys had an additional 1000 front axle limit. So from year to year it changed. I think the last Journeys also had a 23 or 24 thousand pound rear axle.

Yep, I had some 60 of the halogen can lights. Tried the cheap $1 bulbs from eBay and Amazon. Finally ended up buying M4 products 10 at a time to spread the cost out.

I see what you are saying. Mine is 12350#.
Check the other model of tires Toyo has. I am certain there is one right for your rig. I just tried to search the site but it is down at the moment. I have contacted Toyo about this. I hope they fix it soon. This is the first time I have had problems searching the Toyo site.
