Well, I suppose it really boils down to what you're comfortable with. At my running weights I am comfortable with 3 steel belts and LRE.

OK! In this thread I have ONLY been talking about Michelin LTX M/S LT225/75 R16 LRE....they are only made in USA and CANADA.

No more STs for me. I hve not had any disasters, but I am not going to borrow trouble. WAAAAAY too many stories to ignore, and ASes are REALLY expensive to fix after a blowout.

That question was for Ole Red, who said Tredits were recalled. All I found online was Tredit 15" steel wheels for boat trailers and specific SOB manufacturers on recall.

dznfog.... thanks for the info. The Michelin LTX tire I am looking at has a Max Load rating of 2183. I'm aware it will not be as good as moving up into the 16 inch range but I feel like it is a step up from the GYM. We also travel very light when we pull. My tanks are empty and we normally only have clothing and a small about of food. We like to purchase locally and wait to stock up on groceries after we get to or near our site. I may still consider the 16 inch wheels. I'm just having problems finding a style of wheel I like. Again....thanks for the recommendation...steve

Do yourself one favor though, Steve. Load up the AS and run it over the scales. That'll ease your mind on the proper choice. I like to leave some reserve on the tires due to 2 things.

1) Running in high temps is VERY hard on tires. A maxed out tire in high heat MAY not stand up.

2) Trailers, just like people, tend to gain weight as time goes on. More than you would think. Since your new tires will be with you 5 - 7 years, think ahead.

My personal advice is, if you run over the scales, and you are at 7500 pounds ON THE AXLES (not total weight) loaded and properly hitched, I would strongly consider moving up to 16" LTs. (if you're staying with Michelin). I don't know anything about the Continentals mentioned above, and I don't think there's a lot of "tribal" knowledge on this forum about them. But they do have some more capacity than the 15" LTX extended loads.
