Toyo tire info

Did you find the Toyo the same size as the Michelins?
Does the new front Toyo feel and drive the same? Do they wander right and left?
What psi do you run your front tires?


What load range and how much weight can they handle and highest psi.
See the picture of the Michelins XRV tires
The dealer told me they are about 1/16" shorter than the Michelins.

Here is the info off the tires:

Toyo M154, Load Range G, 5 Ply, Single weight 4675, dual 4300, both at 110 PSI, 245 75R, 22.5. Additional marking 134/131L.

Hope this helps, Happy Trails, Forrest

Are they Semi-truck tires which do have stiffer sidewalls.
I'll go look right now. Too blustery yesterday!

Stand by for update by edit!

On Edit: Toyo type M154. 245/75R225, with the # 134/1312 immediately following(?).

From what we've seen and felt, would recommend them highly. The co-pilot even said she could feel a positive difference.

Had them bead-balanced, but the sidewall said something like auto-balance.

fbconsults I have a 2012 378TS on a 2011 Ford Chassis and just reached 42,000 miles on my Michelin XRV 235/80/R22.5

The left front is cupping on the outer edge. It may have been caused by low air pressure on a long trip last year. Anyway I have plans to have Ford Commercial truck locally take a look and see if anything may be wrong.
Bad shock, loose wheel bearing or bad front end alignment.

I think I will stick with Michelin XRV's but do you remember what price you got on your Toyo? What type of balancing did they do? Spin on the motorhome or off? or did they throw in the white powder bad?

I can get 6 Michelins XRV 235/80/R22.5 installed, balanced, tax, disposal fee for $3,208.83. $535 each. I think this is a good price.

What do you think?

We put the Toyos on our 2011 378 in November. They were about $1100. Less than your Michelin quote. Ride seems the same as with Michelins, handling may be a little better now. I had them spin balanced.

Iggy I put 6 Toyos on 2 years ago and 12000mi M154 245/75r/22.5 drove out the door for $2200. Your looking at spending and extra grand for a name? Just put my name on that check and send it. My Toyos ride as good as the old Michelin handle great wet or dry. And they are 1/16th shorter when new. Hope this helps.

Thanks for your information on the Toyos.
After closer examination I may just replace the front 2 tires now instead of all 6 at this time. Back tandoms look great and no dried sideways or cracking and plenty of tread left. Front ones need to be done in the next few weeks before any long hauls.

Iggy, they were just under 900.00, out the door (for two. They were spin balanced on the coach. They were$150 less each than the Michelins. He also checked my alignment and tightened the sway bar bolts which were loose. I have driven it about 400 miles since I put them on, and they handle and ride as good as the Michelins. I put Toyos on my last coach, a 36' Itasca, and liked them. When I replace the other four the end of this year I will put the Toyos on.

Happy Trails, Forrest

Add me to the Toyo fan club. I replaced my two front tires in July of 2014. The original Michelins were badly worn due to mis-alignment. After purchasing the new tires, I had the front aligned the same day. I plan to replace the four rear tires with Toyos in the near future. I have been very happy with them.

Back when I purchased them, the two Toyo tires cost a total of $750 (mounted, balanced, new metal valve stems), way less than two Michelins. The Michelin 235/80R-22.5 that is installed on the Ford chassis is a unique size that only Michelin makes. Toyo's data sheet recommends their 245/75R-22.5 as a substitute.

Here are the numbers:

(Dimensions in Inches) Width - Sidewall - Diameter

Mich 235/80R-22.5 - 9.25 - 7.40 - 37.30

Toyo 245/75R-22.5 - 9.61 - 7.20 - 36.91

Thanks all for your help.
Decided to get the Toyo 245/75R-22.5 all around.
6 Toyo's (DOT Date 51st week of 2015) Mounted, and balances, tax $2,445.00. Will be getting them tomorrow.
The Michelins would have been $1,000 more.

Both brands are both Load Rated G, 14 ply and minor fractional difference in size.

When my michelins got bad I replaced all six with Master Craft I know you have never heard of them. They are made by Cooper (american made) allot of the loggers use them because of how they wear. I have Toyo's on my P/U trucks (3) and the corvette they are a good tire but around here sort of over priced.
