Reviewing thread. Great info here, allowing one to mull over the facts and otherwise. Good to know which tires will do the job regardless of the brand or ratings, LT, LTX etc. appreciate the insights of everyone.

I did a post on my RV Tire Safety Blog March 2 2015 "Much confusion on some RV Forums"

just on the confusion caused by Michelin when they came up with the "LTX MS/2" line of P type and LT type tires.

For more confusion, Michelin mud and snow tire (M+S2) has said on the sidewall it is an all season, not a mud and snow tire. I haven't looked for that on my newest Michelins, but I have seen it on older ones.

Despite Michelin's sometimes strange marketing, they make really good tires and stands behind them when there is a problem.

Michelin's website does tell you whether an LTX tire is a light truck tire or not. Below is a screen shot from today. Notice that it also says that a tire is all-season. An explanation of all-season can be found here: http://www.tirerack.com/winter/tech/...jsp?techid=125

My impression of all season tires originally was that they were not very good in snow. But the Michelin LTX M/S without or with the "2" have been excellent in snow, even when the tread is near the end of its life. According to the link Tim included, a snow tire has a snowflake on the sidewall. There's so much info on sidewalls now, maybe that is the reason 18" and 20" tires are needed just to fit it all.

I'm going to get tires soon- like in the morning-
One of the Goodyear Marathons is all bloated and swollen and tread down to the wear indicators.
I am at a campground, and I'm aware of 2 tire stores in this town and a Walmart.
Options/choices:
1. Get 15" Michelin MS/2
2. Get 16" zero offset wheels and Michelins- i bet no tire store will have the wheels in stock-
3. Put the spare on. Go on home. Buy/order tires and wheels from the internet.
What do y'all think?

If two axles - spare.
Walmart has lots of tires available online - to include with rim. Order and have delivered within a few days to one nearby. Some won't take an RV or trailer in, but you can take the wheels off and take them in.

Hi, go home relax and really think about what you want, without pressure. My 81 MPH Carlises are doing good so far. From Salem, Oregon to Bar Harbor, Maine. [close to 5,000 miles]

I had Carlisles before- same exact thing- all puffed out and swollen-
The three remaining tires that are not "exploded" will go on my utility trailer- 2 on the ground and a spare-
What I do will depend on what's available locally- or not-
I'm leaning toward 15" Michelin LTX MS/2 and getting 16" wheels and tire next time because I an broke and poor-
I can probably replace the tires with 15" for about $400.
On my previous trailer, I ordered tires wholesale through my work and mounted and balanced them myself- cost: $396-

That close to home, no question, I'd pull it home and then take my time getting exactly what I want. Put the spare on in place of the bad one for now.

Yep.
Investigate 15" LT options.
Or:
Get Sendel wheels of the internet.
Get Firestone TransForce HT 225/75R16 tires from work.
Get tire pressure monitors from the internet.
Rest easy.
