Change from Michelins on 36 Journey

Coach has currently 255/80/22.5 in XRV's. Looking at changing to Hankook if possible, but they don't come in that size exactly. What other size could I consider or other brand? Michelin info states 541 revs per mile so would need to stay with similar. Any advice?

Goodyear has a 265/75r/22.5 that they say is comparable. I can't find it in Hancock. Maybe someone else can

Toyo M154 265/75 is almost identical

I have same coach. I changed the original 255/80 XRV's (the 255/80 Michelins were essentially overloaded on this coach and had bad reputation for zipper failures) to Goodyear 275/70's and ran them for 7 years. I just replaced the Goodyear's with Hankook AH-12 275/70/22.5's and they fit just fine.

The coach rides and handles great with the Hankooks.

I just put six Sumitomo 275 X 70R X 22.5 on my Itasca 36G. Speedo exactly the same per Triptek and GPS. Clearance is fine and IDE seems fine in the 15 miles I drove home. I'd of them for $2180 out the door.

FYI, in my area the six AH-12 Hankooks were $2,730 out the door. They were balanced with Equal balancing powder.
