Talking MH Tires

I'm researching Toyo tires to replace the Michelins on my 2005 HR Ambassador 38PDQ. The Michelin's are 275/70/22.5. Which Toyo model and size would work as replacements? I'm not familiar with Toyo tires but they seem to be the general consensus to be the best for replacements if one is not going back with Michelin. Thank you in advance.

Toyo has 275/70/22.5 tires. See the RV Load Inflation Table I included here.

Your motorhome tire specs call for 275/70R/22.5 https://library.rvusa.com/brochure/05_Ambassador_A.pdf. Just be sure you purchase ones with a load rating that exceeds your rv's weight.

I don't believe Toyo has an all-position highway (regional, urban, long-haul) in that exact size. I think the only tire they make in the 275/70R22.5 size is the M320 which isn't recommended for motorhome use.

I'd recommend the Sumitomo ST719. It's an all position very well-rated tire and has had very good reviews from motorhome owners. It also is priced very reasonably compared to a first tier tire like an equivalent Michelin, Bridgestone, Continental, and even should be priced lower than a Toyo should they make one in that size.

I also like the Yokohama RY103 (only available in load range H or 16-ply rated, I believe) or the Hankook AH37 but the Sumitomo is priced quite a bit lower and has a load range J or 18-ply rated.

The ST719 represents a great value in my opinion. I'm not sure if they are manfufactured in their plant outside of Buffalo New York yet or not (many of their commercial truck tires are now made at that plant) as somebody on the forum recently posted that the ones they received were made in Japan but no matter, you'll get a Japanese-engineered tire for a great price whether it's made at their plant in New York or if it comes from Japan.

Motorhometires.com (an iRV2 sponsor): Sumitomo ST719 - 275/70R22.5

And doing a quick search, the best price I could find is at Tires-easy: Sumitomo ST719 - 275/70R22.5

That post on the St719 was probably mine ��.

Nobody in Arizona could get the Sumitomo tires back then as they were out of stock. Of all places, Walmart.com listed them for about $291. I ordered and local shop installed. Been happy with them. I also added Centramatics with the cost savings and highly recommend them, really smoothed out the ride.

Check the above link for picture comparing Michelins to Sumitomo. There is a slight size difference.

That is the same size my MH takes. I bought 6 new Sailun truck tires mounted, balanced, installed, the final bill was $1,380 in 2017.
