Michelin to Toyo on 2016 Canyon Star

Going from 225/80r 22.5 Michelin xze2…. To Toyo M170 tires
Anyone have the best Toyo size replacement…., allowing for proper air gap in duels

Thanks

Toyo does not make a M-170 series tire in the size you are trying to replace. The Toyo M-154 in size 245/75x22.5 is what you are looking for if Toyo is your choice. Excellent tires FYI

I also purchased the M154 tires in size 245 x 75 X 22.5.
I have driven them about 4,000 miles and find them to handle and ride equal or better than the Michelin 235 X 80 tires.
They are a little wider and have a higher load rating as well. It did take me a few miles to get the pressures right, but once I did the coach’s ride improved and no worrying about precisely how deep the cracks in the sidewalks are since there aren’t any.

Your 2016 Canyon Star came with 225/80R22.5 tires....?

I ask because my 2014 Canyon Star came with 255/80R22.5 tires.

I've read the recommended replacement is the Toyo M154 in 265/75R22.5 .....

My 2016 Canyon Star 3710 cam with Michelin XZE2 225/80R/22.5
Looks like the Toyo M154 size
265/75/R22.5

At least that’s what I have been advised

Check again to see if you're reading that size correctly. I also think it should be a 255/80R22.5 and if so, the correct/traditional equivalent would be a 265/75R22.5

If you truly do have a 225/80R22.5, I'm hesitant to say that a 265/75R22.5 would be a suitable application.

225/80R22.5 is an uncommon size for a motorhome.


But yes, should you in fact have a 255/80R22.5, then the Toyo M154 265/75R22.5 would be excellent advice!

I'm not sure what tire size he has at this point, but according to Michelin web site they do not make a XZE2 in the size stated. Confused

Equivalent size is 265/75x22.5
Smell will dissipate after a while
Glad I switched
