Tires! Need Help With Tire Purchase

Hello,
Ive got a 2008 Winnebago Journey 39Z.

Trying... TRYING!! to decide what tire I should replace the existing Firestone 275/75R 22.5 with.

Any help is appreciated.

Id prefer not buying the expensive Michelin XRV 255/80R 22.5 if there is a compatible tire that will get the job done safely.

Im zeroing in on the TOYO M154 series but Im struggling with the appropriate size.

If any Journey owner has crossed this bridge Id appreciate your advice or experience in this arena.

Id appreciate any help with this topic.

We shouldnt have to reinvent the wheel every time we want to purchase tires for these rigs.

Thank you! JK

I have spent the last month doing the same thing you're doing. I looked at several brands. My Journey has 235/80R22.5's. After looking at size differences and pricing, I settled back to the Michelin's. I used the FMCA discount and was within just a few dollars of most others. Mine are being installed on Monday. My main concern was the spacing between the rear duals.

I put hankook 255/70/22.5 on my 32t journey. $2750.00 all 6 out the door. 12,000 miles, still love em. although my speedo says I'm going 2mph than I'm actually going.

Take a look at the Michelin XZE. The rep told me they were longer wearing and a little better for the sun. Yes $$$$. You get what you pay for. I can't change them while traveling anyway so I went with the best on my SuperNova.

I’d like to put the Michelin XZE 275/80R 22.5 on my 08 Journey but they’re a little bigger than the 255/80R that came on ii and are a H load rating. I know the newer models have a larger tire but they may be on a different Freightliner chassis and the coach may have more clearance than the 2008.
I find it interesting that the OEM Michelin 255/80R 22.5 G rating load limits at 110psi are EXACTLY the same limits of the MH...

When our Michelins XZA's aged out, we replaced them with XZE's.
The XZE's are a bit tougher & have more ribs on the sidewall. The Michelin Man was worn off the XZA's from hitting campground curbs etc.
They don't look as 'cool' as the XZA's, but the ride & mileage is the same (7-8 mpg). Very happy with them.

OEM

We decided to go with OEM tires. Michelin 255/80R 22.5 XRV. I guess we decided better safe than sorry.
