In that size, I'd strongly recommend the Toyo M144. Without looking up current prices, I'd say the M144 could be around $250 or more per tire less expensive than a comparable tire from Michelin, Continental, Goodyear, etc.

The M144 is a popular tire to use on a motorhome.

I seldom recommend this particular tire but I hear the Falken RI151 (description from their webpage go HERE) is a relatively new tire where I now notice that some in the trucking industry are discussing it as being a very good tire that represents an exceptional value. I notice it comes in the 295/80R-22.5 size and for a very good price depending on availability.

The reason I mention the Falken brand is that they are made by Sumitomo which is one of my favorite brands along with Toyo and Yokohama ...all Japan-based companies. I believe I read somewhere that the Falken RI151 might be manufactured at the Sumitomo plant in Tonawanda NY outside of Buffalo. I'm not sure of that, however. But we know that many of the Sumitomo commercial truck tires are made at that plant and also some of the Falken passenger car tires are also manufactured there.

So the Falken RI151 may be also one to consider if its available where you shop for tires.

ETA: So just for comparison purposes, I'll randomly use a site called "World of Tires" (I've never purchased there but just using them so you can get an idea of the general price comparison between brands ...either shopping around or negotiating with your favorite local commercial tire dealer may or may not produce better prices):

Toyo M144 -- $513.04

Falken RI151 -- $481.98

Michelin XZA2 Energy -- $774.00

Goodyear G670 -- $883.10

Continental HSR2 SA -- $767.13

Every brand on the market today will have a loyal following of owners that are happy with their choice. I was a die hard Michelin fan till some friends told what great service they got from Toyo's. When I replaced the "M's" 2 1/2 years ago, I saved $2500 on eight 295/80/22.5 M144's. ($384 each plus tax & mounting) Couldn't be happier with the ride. Prices are higher now, but the savings is probably close to the same.

I was getting ready to change my tires early last year and did quite a bit of research and ultimately settled on Toyo. Even got 2 quotes from local dealers both very close at ~$3400 for a set of 6 installed.

Decided to hold off so I will be checking again in the near future, not going to pull the trigger until I know when we might be able to get the vaccinations.

When I first bought our coach in late 2008 the front tires had a very bad wear problem. They were Goodyear. Not sure if it was the "rivering" or alignment. Put a set of Bridgestones on and they have performed really well, have +50K miles on the front tires and they still look like new but have aged out. But the price o Bridgestone has gotten as bad as Michelin.

My experience with GY 670RV tires in that exact size was HORRIBLE with 2 sets of them could not be balanced even at GY Wingfoot commercial tire centers. My advice is to avoid them at any cost.

I recently did the four drive tires. I installed Yokohama 295 80R 22.5 tires (made in Mississippi) at a total cost of $1,400. Iíve been very pleased with them so far (about 5,000 miles) and donít notice any difference in ride or handling from the Michelinís that they replaced.
