We used the Michelins on our 25' Classic, and loved them. I'm not certain where the 41 psi inflation came from, but I always aired mine to 50 psi and checked the tire's temps with an infra red heat sensor gun and they always ran cooler than my truck tires.

3/2/15 I did a post on my blog just on the Michelin LTX and the confusion caused when Michelin intentionally / unintentionally selected a tire name with "LT" in it and included P type and LT type in the size line-up.

The confusion is compounded when people don't include all the information that I consider part of the size description. That being the preceding type letter i.e P or LT or ST and they also do not include the Load Range info stated on the sidewall. i.e. blank = Standard Load or LR-B
XL for Extra load on a P type tire or LR-C or LR-D etc for LT type tires.

It also appears that Michelin recently changed their web page as in the past there were over 40 different LTX tires. Some were Passenger and some were LT

If you go to TireRack and click on sizes you can see they have many

You've already found one that doesn't work and I assure you, there are many more.

So totally ignore what they said and go with what the tire manufacturer tells you - So, Yes!, that Michelin P235/75R15 will fit on a 15X6 wheel.

This tire should be inflated to the maximum rating as shown on the sidewall.....50 p.s.i. for use on your trailer.
