Michelin vs Toyo Tired

My motorhome currently has Michelin 275/80 R22.5 XZA3 LRH tires. I have 42,000 miles on these tires and they are 6 years old. The tread and sidewalks still look very good but I知 concerned about their age. It is kept in a totally enclosed building so they have very little sun exposure.
I知 looking at getting Toyo tires but I can稚 find a match for the size I have now. What size Toyo tire would be the closest to what I have now in dimensions and load capacity?

Michelin RV Tires:
It is impossible to predict when tires should be replaced based on their calendar age alone. However, the older a tire the greater the chance that it will need to be replaced due to the service-related evolution or other conditions found upon inspection or detected during use. While most tires will need replacement before they achieve 10 years, it is recommended that any tires in service 10 years or more from the date of manufacture, including spare tires, be replaced with new tires as a simple precaution even if such tires appear serviceable and even if they have not reached the legal wear limit.
Since you have taken such great care of the tires, I doubt i would be changing them out at only 6 years old.

Personally, I would push them to at least 7 years and, in the interim, find two matching Michelins. At the 7-year mark, replace the front two and push the rears another year or so.

I found this online:

Toyo M154 in 295/75 R22.5 is the size to replace Michelin 275/80 R22.5. The Toyos are 0.3% larger in circumference.

You should verify with a Toyo dealer.

I switched to Toyo 12 years ago and couldn't be happier.

I just replaced my XRV Michelins with Toyo M154s. Happy with ride and steering control.

Different size (235/80R22.5 to 245/75R22.5) but I'm sure you can find a very similar diameter tire in Toyo to your Michelins when you decide to go for them.

You are lucky to be at six years with Michelins....I changed to Toyo at five and a half years, my Michelin's sidewalls were cracked. And, yes always covered parking or covered while camping.

This will help to compare the size of each tire side by side
