I got a quote last week for 6 Toyo tires 295/75-22.5 at $511 + tax per tire. That is mounted, balanced, new valve stems and installed. Alignment was quoted at $225.

RV Tire Cost

We have lots of conflicting discussions here on tire costs in which the tire sizes and where they purchased was not given.

Tire cost goes up exponentially with size and there are also probably big differences depending on what state they were purchased in and whether they were in large cities where higher prices are to be expected.

That was a typo that I addressed in an earlier post.
You didn't read it.
Evidently you are too engrossed in yourself showing people how smart you think you are.
It's 365's.
Michelin is the only manufacturer of 365's.

Michelin is a little weird with 22.5 (and 24.5) sizes...I suspect the rest of the industry's 385/65R22.5 (fairly common, usually a dump truck steer/tag tire) is the equivalent. You can get them for $5-600 if you shop carefully.

385's are too tall and too wide and will not work.

I just priced a new Toyo front tire for our 2005 Alfa at my local tire shop here in Cleburne Texas. $450.00.

No, they're not...they're the same diameter. Michelin is just weird about 22.5" sizes.

Just like their 275/80R22.5 and everyone else's 295/75R22.5 are the same size, and can be used side by side on the same duals. (I personally put 75,000 miles on a truck with a 295/75 and a 275/80 on each dual.)

I have Toyos all the way around now, and they were new a couple years ago. Still look new. Only have a few miles on them, just aged.

After reading most of the posts, I'm amazed at how much some have paid for Michelin tires. I admit that prior to replacing the original M's, I wasn't going to look at anything else. Only after talking to two friends and their experience with Toyo's plus seeing the sidewall cracking on my 5 years old Michelins, did I decide to rethink my choice. Three years ago, I purchased eight 295/80.22.5 M144's for $2500 less than the mighty "M's" would have cost. Great ride, easy to balance and higher speed rating. What's not to like about that?

That's about as close as it could get to being the same.
