Michelin LTX M/S tires...

I was reading Rich's blog and noticed that he has recently installed Michelin LTX M/S tires, LT235-75/R15 load C tires on his trailer.

Anyone else have experience with these?

Several people on this forum use them, including an Airstream dealer. I'll report my experience, after a year or 10,000 miles, on my blog.

We have the Michelin LTX M/S 225/75 R16 on our unit and on our TV. We are very happy we made the change on the AS. At 65psi we don' t even know the trailer is back there. I think it also hugs the curves better IMHO.

Absolutely no regrets on ridding ourselves of the Marathons.

Happy Trails,

Time to retire


I also swithced to Michelin LTX M/S 225/75 R16, about 10,000 miles ago. Like fr8tshaker, I think it is one of the best upgrades I've made on my rig!

What is the advantage in going from the 15" to the 16" tires/wheels?

You can get an LT (light truck) designated tire vs. ST (trailer).

Tested to 80 mph vs. 65mph and with a bead just as strong as a trailer tire to take the turning stresses on dual or triple axles.

Good tire but keep tire covered whenever you can, they like to dry out and crack.

Just go camping once a month to keep the juices kneaded through out the tire, this will make it last longer.
Make you last longer too.
