Welcome to the forum.

I'd recommend the Toyo M144. They will be substantially under the price of the Michelin XRV in the same size. Toyo is the most popular replacement brand for the OE Michelins but in your size, you're rather limited in your choices of brands as many on the forum will recommend brands other than Toyo also.

Toyo represents a great value in that size, IMO, and many on the forum will have good things to say about the M144.

Here they are at iRV2 vendor and sponsor of this sub-forum, motorhometires. com, but you can shop online or at your local brick-and-mortar commercial truck tire dealer to compare price:

Toyo M144 305/70R22.5 - 8 tires for illustration purposes

Michelin XRV 305/70R22.5 - 8 tires for illustration purposes

I would considder if replacement is realy needed at this moment.
These expensive Trucktires can last upto 10 years, with some care. Even Michelin writes this.

But if you do, also look at the speedcode.
If for instance for M speedrated, max 81mph, it will give lower loadindex/maxload.
But if that is the same or higher then GAWR/2 or 4, it is leagaly allowed, and tiremaker allowes you that higher speed.
So dont look at as much possible maxload alone.

Will give picture I made here in the Netherlands.
Look at the yellow line, see service descriptions and for other max speed additional service descriptions ( loadindex and speedcode).
A verry common thing in Europe for trucktires.

So see its yust a different calculation of maxload for other max speed, by the tiremaker.

Picture is of a Goodyear tire, but tirebrands in the Continental groop also have a good name.
Some brands in Continental groop
Ofcource Continental
Mayby not all specialised un Trucktires, but Barum and Semperit certainly. And mayby, because not that well known, a lower price.

Also see the DOT date 3809 so week 38 of 2009, made the picture 4 years ago. So then 10 years old.
