Phaeton Tires 275/80R22.5 or go bigger? Michelin? Conti?

Thinking I've pushed the limits enough on my Phaeton's tires with date code 0712 (7th week of 2012, right?)

So do I stay with stock size 275/80R22.5 or go bigger on steers? Currently rolling on Michelin XZA3 275/80R22.5 - ride is great in the south, terrible in the north. But that is more the roads vs tires.

FMCA is showing Continental @ about $430 - what load range would I want G or H?


FMCA also shows BFG & Michelin for quite a wide range - any suggestions?

Check what you have but I would be pretty sure they are load range H. Check the carrying capacity on your tire and on the sticker inside the coach.

The problem with going larger on steers might be clearance. You would have to make sure there is plenty of room for them to turn and move. I'm also pretty sure you would need H. If you do have Gs, changing to H should allow you to run lower pressure for the same load.

No advise on size but used the FMCA program last week for 6 Continental HSR2 sa tires. Make sure that the dealers knows that the FMCA price includes the Fed Excise Tax.

Agree
There is a Conti contact listed that will confirm the above to any dealer that has a question.
Recently put 6 new HSR2 & Centramatic balance rings on our MH and just completed a couple thousand mi trip... very happy.
