Replacement for Michelin tires

I know this has been discussed on here but I am not at searching for prior threads.

My MH has Michelin 235/80R22.5 tires on it and I would like to know if there is a Toyo (or other brand) replacement for this tire. Thanks in advance for the help.

I bought Toyo M-154 as well instead of the michelins. Very happy for 4 years running...

Toyo makes an excellent tire. Lower price than Michelins (still not cheap - prices have gone way up in the last 6-9 months for all tires).

Be careful about going to a wider tire on the rear duals - if they touch each other, they will cause flats.

I think minimum clearance between tires is about 2" to 2.5".

Toyo M-154's in 245/75R22.5 is a perfect replacement for the factory Michelins.

In response to your question - the 245/75R22.5 is the metric substitute for the 235/80R22.5. In the Toyo 245/75R22.5, it is the M154.
Safe Travels Everyone!!

Just so you know.

238/80R22.5 turns ≈555 revolutions/mile and is ≈9.6" wide

245/75R22.5 turns ≈560 revolutions/mile and is ≈10" wide

The difference in revolutions/mile will affect your speedometer by ≈1%. You will be going slightly slower than your speedometer indicates.

The difference in width could be a problem but probably won't.

Dully tires on Diesel pushers are not close enough that .4 inches closer does not matter. On gas units, look up the clearance requirements for dully tires. The minimum is usually 1/2 inch at maximum weight. I changed my tires to Toyo's 255/70R22.5 sized tires from GoodYear. Great tires. So are Continental, Sumitomo, as well as a few others. Look for tires made in USA, Cannada, Mexico, France, Japan, Thailand, or anything but China. I use the GPS for actual speed reading.
