I'll keep shopping. And may just bite the bullet and drive somewhere. If something happens on the road, I do have coach-net. I had a list of other tires, but he only came back with the Michelins.

Also looking at going smaller like 295/80R22.5 like Alfa (diego) is about to.

Down sizing a tire, not a smart move.

Weight rating on the 295/80R22.5 is actually higher then the 12R22.5's that are on there now.

Is there another reason why it's a bad idea?

The 295 Toyo M144s that I just put on the rear today, are 1 inch shorter (41.5 vs 42.5), but 1/2 inch wider than the Michelin 12Rs that came on the coach. They have a slightly higher load capacity too.

I will stay with 315s on the front since the front axle carries more weight, and because I have read that the wider fronts handle better.

Ran 295’s for over 60,000 miles on the M 380. Both axles, no issues at all.
