I am using these 15" Michelins on my 30' bunkhouse model as well with very good results. I tow the trailer at 6900 to 7300 lbs.

Having read the early posts of 3 years ago, it is interesting how the arguments against LT tires then just don't hold up despite the clever and complicated so-called facts. I join in attesting to the actual fact that my Michelins don't cause my 28 footer to sway or anything else for that matter. What they do cause, however, is to put my mind at ease as well as stopping the incessant tire checking that I did with my former STs. Thank you Andy T for your help in my choice over 2 years ago.

We have had the same success with the Michelin LTX M+S 16" tires. We have more than 30,000 miles on them and they have been as far north as Alaska's Brooks Range and have been in much of Canada and the US with them. The worst thing was a screw that caused a very slow leak and after a couple of weeks, I got it fixed.

I laugh when I read scare stories about cops making you park a trailer that doesn't have ST trailers, or another story going around here a few years ago about them stopping you if the safety chains aren't twisted around one another.
A 25 year state cop in the family has never checked tires in his life for anything but wear and never heard of either of these laws. I think some of us old buzzards get carried away with our BS sometimes.

This is an old thread. Back when this thread was started, there were Michelin LTX M/S LT235/75/15 LRC tires available. When Michelin changed to the LTX M/S2, they dropped the LT in the 235/75/15 size.

I think they dropped the 15" tire before the change to M/S2. The M/S2 came out in late '09 and I bought a set of M/S just before that. The 15" M/S weren't available then. This was something of great interest on tire threads during that time and was the reason many of us switched to 16" Michelins during that period.
