Michelin 275/70R22.5 XZA2 these seem the closet. But you need to look at the rims and see what every you want is for your rims size.

Do you have a reference for that?

I've had 2 set of Michelins, they give a softer ride, and longer life.


Yeah, I had 3 sets crack badly after 3 1/2 years, enough I didn't want to drive on them anymore. Michelin gave me credit one time, and I switched to Toyo's and will never use Michelin again.
And as far as Michelin is a softer ride both my wife and I feel we are getting a better ride with the Toyo's.

I'll take minor cracking any day over blow outs on a china bomb.

They got that nick name for a reason.

OBTW my Michelins had 11 years on them, and no cracking.

Tom/Barb...

Ease up dude...Looks like someone pushed your buttons.

Actually TOYO is a product of Japan, and most are built right here in the good ol' USA, in Georgia.

The company has been in business for over 50 years.

Agree, the China bombs are a bad product, (ask me how I know).

I am just looking for something to replace the original Michelins, as these have some very bad sidewall cracking.

Our MH will be for two or three week trips, not full timing.

Great thing about our country....We can have opinions without being put in front of a firing squad.

Life's short...Have fun!!

Wow!! That is an amazing list which seems to say, you probably don't know where your tires are made!

The problem with tires for RVs is that most "truck" tires are made to go 1000s of miles in a short time while RVers drive their tires 100s of miles in a very long time.

About 20 years ago Michelin tried to address that conflict with the XRV tire. Problem was the XRV would blow out at the steel cord area, and the steel cord was rusty when it did. Worst thing was that Michelin refused to cover the tire failure, blaming it on the owner/driver in any way they could, such as "too fast/too slow", or "low pressure/high pressure", and so on. After that, I vowed to never buy another Michelin.

I have a friend who is an executive in a major tire company, and he has nothing but good to say about the quality of Chinese truck tires.

It is a difficult situation for US tire brands.


Today is my personal best for most consecutive days alive.

There's a tire code for that.

I have a feeling some of us will be surprised by the code on our tires.
