16" LT tires

I will be replacing the BF Goodrich 16" LT tires on my 1976 31' Sovereign soon. Is this the 16" LT Michelin that others are using. I know there are a lot of tire choices with the 16" LT tires and the BF Goodrich tires have been fine but wanted to get the current thoughts from others, thanks

This is what we installed:

Michelin LT225/75R16/E LTX M/S2 rated 2,680 pounds @ 80 psi 29.2" diameter
Michelin P/N 05681

The Discount Tire description failed to show if the tire was Load Range E

I initially installed the 16' LTX Michelin's but then upgraded to the Michelin 16'Ribs.Have put about 10,000 miles (Run 70 PSI)on the Ribs and wear is very even ride is just as smooth as the LTX but the sidewalls are thicker and the overall build is HD.I have a 28ft International.
My 2 Cents

Mike, do you have specifics on your choices? I remember seeing them getting installed on your instagram but couldn't tell exact models for wheels and tires.
