More on Tires

I have a set of Michelin XCA 7.00R15 tires on my unit, load range C, max inflation 60psi. Does anybody know if these are still made? They seem like a very good tire, and radial to boot.

I have a 72 27' International with Goodyear Marithon radials
ST 225 /75 R15 Load range C.

On the door side of the trailer the wheels rubbed the inside of the wheel well. It looked like the wheel well was bulged out so I screwed and pop rivited it back, then patched the wheel well.

I just did a complete brake job and new wheel bearings and now look to have about 3/4" space.

I like the Goodyear tires but prob need a more narrow tire.

Any suggestions.?

Check the tire to wheel well clearance on each side of the trailer.

A quirk in the production process may have happened in your case. If the dimensions are not equal, then please let me know, and I will guide you accordingly, to determine why.
