Noobie tire dilemma
Today is Aug. 10, 12. I just bought a 2002 25' Classic. It is my first RV. I estimate that it has seen less than 2K miles, but the tires are original. They are GYM. The DOT code says that they were mfgd in 2001. I need to take the trailer out soon, so need to address the tire replacement issue.
I have searched through posts here and I feel that the Michelin LX M/S 2 235/75/15 are my best choice. I look at putting 10K miles on the A/S annually for the first few years.
I called my local Discount Tire franchise, and he pushed the Carlisle 225/75/15 8 ply tires, reason being that they were "trailer tires". They run cooler,etc.
I don't think at this point I want to change to 16"
I think I should go with the Michelins, 1. because I respect the brand, and 2. because I respect folks with long term experience on this forum.
What would you go with?
