Tire question?

Michelin is still in very short supply in the pacific north west, especially for XRV 235x80x22.5, OEM. In Vancouver, Canada, my Kal tire dealer tells me to go with 245x75x22.5 Bridgestone. Is it ok to change tire size like that?
Opinions please
Thanks
Milo

This tire size calculator/ comparator displays any differences when contemplating switching tire size.

That's a nice calculator but I didn't see the 1/2" sizes such as 19.5, 22.5, etc.

What the calculator calls "profile" is what the tire industry calls the aspect ratio. It's expressed as a percentage of the tread width. The lower the aspect ratio, the shorter & fatter the tires are. This mostly applies to sports car tires however, and not RV's!

Why do people keep putting up with Michelins crap. There are many tires that are just as good and a lot less expensive.

They rubbed me the wrong way years ago. I worked for a nationwide trash hauler. Our purchasing dept started negotiating nationwide price agreements with suppliers of our biggest expenses such as fuel, tires, lubricants, uniforms, etc.

When we discussed spending 20 million or more a year on tires, Bridgestone/Firestone, Goodyear, Kelly-Springfield, etc. even offered to shine our shoes.

Michelin told is if we wanted their tires, we paid their price.
