Navy Flyer,

One thing here that has not been discussed is wheel offset. You have not given us the wheel offset's on your M/H.

I agree that the 235 tires are just marginal, but you must get the wheel numbers and from there determine the wheel width plus the wheel off set. By the valve stem is a wheel number and the maker of the wheel.

My Safari is in the weight range yours is, however I have 7.5" wide wheels and a 12" offset. I can put a 275/80 or 275/70 tire on the rim. It is wide enough. But a 275/80 275/70 tires requires a 12.3" offset miniumn thus I can not use them. (Michelin says you can mount a 275/80 or 70 tire on a 7.5" rim)

Wheel offsets, from the Michelin Site. 22.5"
235/80 10.5"
255/80 11.3"
255/70 11.6"
275/80 12.3"
275/70 12.3"

I would guess you have 12" offset wheels since it orig came with 235 tires. If so the largest tire you can mount is a 255 tire.

The man asked about GOODYEAR TIRES. Many of you have given him the answer.
I don't have all the numbers etc. but evidently the 275 carries more weight over the 255.

I would use the one that carries more weight , maybe I don't need it, yet it is always nice to have a safety factor. Another reason I would get the 275 is it makes more sense to me...

If you don't like the idea of a safety factor use the 255. GoodMiles

I just got back from Ocean city Maryland. i had a blowout in denton Maryland on Labor Day. I called GOOD SAM road service and was told that because of Labor Day every one was closed. I had no spare. they later called back and said they had found a Michelen 235 x r 22 5 but it would cost $ 400 plus $300 for bringing it to me. I unhooked the tracker and found a tire 20 miles away for $175 used but abael to go 200 miles.the tire that blew was a michelen on the right front it unzipped on the inside. I,m going to get the G670 .Why does GOOD SAM caled it emergency service.

Reminds me of a sign a disgruntled person pasted to the entrance of the local hospital emergency entrance:

Zipper failure is almost always caused by low inflation or running low from a punture. Low pressure is defined by Goodyear as 80% of proper PSI.

Here is an article on zipper failures
