I am running Double Coin and Ling Long.  I have had nary a trouble with either brand.
Is that really the names of the tires? That sounds almost comical. No offence.

I had to ask them to repeat it twice at the dealer before I figured he wasn't being a comedian.  They are under $400 installed.

The the 275/80R-22.5 is 11.2" wide and the 80 height is higher than most so it should be about the same as the 1100R x 22.5 which, I think, is also an 80 series tire. It may be a 75 which is not quite as tall.

The 295 is 12" wide.

I don't consider a 75 or 80 ratio tire a low profile but maybe it is!

Older sizes didn't show the ratio but I think it was 80.

Bridgestone R299 295/75R-22.5 tire- 40.2 overall diameter, 18.8 static loaded radius, 517rpm.
Michelin XZA3 275/80R-22.5 tire- 40.1 overall diameter, 18.6 static loaded radius, 518rpm.
So you see-interchangable tires on a per axle.  Good Luck, TomC
