Replacements for Michelin 235/80R 22.5

Getting ready to replace the Michelins on my workhorse Pace Arrow.

I found a 2018 thread concerning this same tire size but just wanted to throw it out the group as it is 3 years since if there are any new more improved tires or thoughts. The $550 per Michelin tire is a bit steep...

Any recommendations are welcome!

Thanks in advance!

245/75R22.5 is less than 1% different in circumference and .3" wider.

YES. This is the correct size for other brands that can be used to replace Michelin OE tires. I suggest you investigate that size from Toyo and stay away from the cheapest brands from China.

Toyo M-154 and Summitomo St-719 would be my two choices. Be aware that tire prices are increasing at an alarming rate so don't make my mistake. Cost me an extra $160 for 4 tires because I waited 21 days to purchase

there are many threads about carrying a spare because the Michelin tires are so hard to find when you need one on the road. Are 245/75R22.5 tires easier to find on the road if you need one in a hurry?

I used Yokohama when I replace the tires on my Dolphin a few years ago. I see the price has almost doubled in that time frame. I carried an unmounted tire in the belly of the coach, just in case. Even at todays prices IF ya needed a tire on the road you'd pay a lot more and may not even find one to match the set.

I just replaced our same size Michelin’s on Monday. I went with Bridgestone Ecopia’s in the 245/75R22.5. I’ve only got 50 miles on them so not extensive road test, but the ride felt fine, no noticeable difference from the Michelin’s I took off. (Although I was a lot less white knuckled coming home, the cracking on the Michelin’s had really accelerated over the winter).

I’d have to check but I think I paid around $345 per tire. Aside from the cost, the lack of avail of Michelin’s helped convince me to make the swap, if you can’t find when installing what is likely going to be out there when broken down on the side of the road?
