Substitute for Michelin 235/80R22.5

I've had these on order with tire shop for about 3 weeks. Called today and they are still on back order from Michelin so it looks like I might have to look at another brand. Has anybody out there bought equals to Michelin 235/80R22.5 and were ok with alternate ?
Would appreciate getting info on tires you purchased

I haven't yet however I've read a lot of good about Toyo's on iRV2 Forums

Since the "80" size is specific to Michelin this calculator will help you determine how a different size will affect things.

The attached picture shows the calculator results for the size I've most commonly read as being used to replace the Michelin size we both have.

One thing to remember is how much closer the two dual tires will be to each other when the width is increased. Another is to assure you have sufficient wheelwell clearances. That's where a calculator like this can help out.

Had TOYO M154 245/75R22.5 tires installed this year on my 2012 GT 378 and have no issues. Trips this year to Seattle and Oregon coast plus the Colorado Rockies from Tx. Had them drop shipped to my local installer and were a lot cheaper than the Michelin's. They were 2 months old when received. MFG date 3rd week 2019 (0319).

Al lot of folks use many different brands, we went with Bridgestone. 245/75R22.5, about 1100.00 cheaper. Per the truck tire dealer, who carries both, the Bridgestone is very much the equal. Will see I guess. It's years not miles that are driving the replacement. Have had the Bridgestone for about a year now, really nice tire. Good luck on your choice.

There are no other tires equal to Michelin. They are expensive, but they are the best. I have used them for years, never an issue. When it comes to tires and brakes I do not compromise. I only have one life and it is worth more and a few hundred dollars to me.

Wanted to thank everyone for responses. I managed to find michelin tires by calling local tire dealers in the area. A tire here, a tire there I was able to round enough up.

When we were looking for a used MH I figured on replacing the tires. So I did research for 22.5" (I figured on the larger more expensive size). What I found was the Michelins and Toyo's were tops. Fortunately though we found a MH with 22.5" Michelins that had new tires installed a year before we bought it.

I personally never buy Michelins. Nothing but problems with car tires. But it seems the G rated tires are very good quality. So I will ignore my own advice on he Michelins for the MH.
