Not available in 295 80R 22.5, but thanks.

I'm satisfied that a winter 295 80R 22.5 is not commercially available in a brand I'd use. I have some Chinese tires (Sailun) on my old Suburban that I use as a winter beater, but I wouldn't but them on my coach.

To the point Bob has been making, I've driven on the Michelins and the original Goodyears for over a decade, and I'm not afraid of them, so if there isn't an option I'll just carry on.

Paul, no offense taken. Fact is, if there was a market for what you describe, tire makers would offer them. The majority of RV owners park it for the winter, not willing to drive or use in the cold. Putting winter tires wouldn't make a lot of sense to those owners. To offer more aggressive treads on RV tires would probably also increase the noise of the tire on dry roads, something many RV users would find problem with.

I hope you find what you want, I think you'll have to look in the truck tire market since RV tires don't seem to offer the choices you desire.

I think you are right that the 295 80R 22.5 is predominately an RV tire in NA. I run 315s on the front but can't on the drive because of the rim spacing (I checked with Accuride who made the wheels).

Intercity busses run on the Prevost chassis, and they run 315's on the drive axle, and you can get a winter tire in that size.

The annoying part is that in Europe a lot of busses run 295 80R 22.5s on the drive axle and you can get them over there in a snow.

Last year we had 3 clear days to get south through Montana, Idaho, and Utah before more storms closed in, and coming home we were stuck at our friends place in Snohomish for a week waiting for the weather to clear over the Snoqualmie and further east in the Rockies.

Even if I had snows I'd have waited.
