If someone is requiring chains on trailers, I'm thinking that's somewhere I should not be going with a trailer.

In case you wish to do it yourself:

How to Add Studs to Tires | eHow.com
Hi, I have been in several places at times where I should of had tire chains, but didn't. Northern California into Oregon with lots of snow coming down and nowhere to go or turn around, so we just kept going. In October after the Jackson Rancheria Rally, we headed for South Dakota. We first hit snow in Wyoming and found snow and ice in South Dakota. I now have many miles of towing on snow and ice without tire chains. I bought an ice scraper, but CrawfordGene told me that I needed a snow brush. I found one at Target after we got home. There wasn't any snow or ice to deal with on our trip to Alaska; I only needed gravel protection, which helped, but still failed to totally protect everything.

"LT tires mounted on 16" wheels will fit, but with less room left in your wheel wells.

Virtually impossible to mount tire chains with 15" wheels and more than likely impossible with 16" wheels. [Oregon law]
"

Hi Robert,

Question:
The 16" Michelin tires I am looking at are rated M/S2
Aren't Mud and Snow tires exempt from requiring chains in snow?

Tire "threads" make my head spin

Time for new tires. After reading all the treads I am confused. I have GYM but will not get the same brand. Some people still like them but I am paranoid after all I have read...
I have Michelin on my truck. Great tires. I want the same for my coach.
Does anyone have any experience with LTX M/S2 235/75R/15 on a trailer similar to mine? I have a 1999 Bambi. Any comment or advice will be helpfull. Thanks.

Does anyone have any experience with the 225/76r15 Goodride. It is a load range E, and could be an alternative to the GYM's on my 2008 20 ft, as I need the carying capacity, and I still like the Idea of staying with the 15 in rims.

Wow - way too much information to consume but I do have to make a choice. To quote RobertSunRUS - "There are some great trailer tires, but for 14" wheels only."

I have not yet come across any GREAT trailer tires for 14" wheels. Can someone point me to some trailer tires that are not GYMs that are great options for 14" wheels?
