I’ve bought two sets of Hankooks and liked them better than the Michelin’s they replaced.

I have a 2014 Winnebago and am looking to replace tires. CUrrently the tires are Michelin 235 80 R22.5 Having problems finding the same tire, and would consider another brand. Any suggestions welcomed.

Thanks

Doesn't have to be the identical tire just the same size. Last ones we bought were Michalein 285x55x22.5 "Steer Axle Tires" on all positions. They have a center groove for tracking and a decoupling? grove around both edges. Not cheap but tires, I don't remember on the rear but front or steer ties took i/4 ounce on one wheel and no weight at all, none, on the other wheel. Coach rode a whole lot better with more flexible sidewalls. Most for semis are rock hard on much much lighter Motor Home.
Goodyear G670s have longer lives but stiffer and o decoupling groove, if you have had a problem with Rivering.

When I redid mine I went to Belle Tire here in Michigan and we decided on Toyo's

Now the thing with Toyo's is they don't have the tread life (in miles) of a Michelin, but on an RV... You never wear out the tread so what does it matter (They age out first).

I also ordered up a set of Duly Valves and had them installed at tire change
If you have duals on the rear I strongly and I mean STRONGLY recommend you do likewise.


May I ask what Belle Tire in Michigan did you go to??? Any Belle Tire I've been to say they don't deal with 22.5's.

Just replaced the original Goodyears with Toyos last month.
Very happy with them. I also had a set of Borg Dually Valve stems
installed at the same time. I would highly recommend them.
No more dealing with crimped or leaking extensions.

Look at Firestone FS561. All position tire used on many trucks. Toyo didn't have the size I needed and I couldn't take any wider on rear due to body clearance when aired down. Nice ride so far at about 1500 milesTANDD

Same here, over rated and way over priced. Check cracking issues.

Just put Firestone FS561’s on this year so far very pleased with them.
They replaced 10 year old Samson’s that were a great tire.
