You won't have a problem with the Michelins.
Can they take the sidewall stress from twisting and turning?

thanks.

I've never had a problem, but I don't have a 34'er. If that is a major concern for you, I'd go with the LT 215/75/15 Good Year Wrangler HT LRD. They are a very robust tire.

When I upgraded to 16" tires & wheels, I did so at JC. The factory had a deal - about $300 each for a 16" Sendel wheel with Michelin LTX225/75R16(e) tires. I run them at the rated 80psi (which is what JC recommended). They did have to do some minor modification to the spare tire holder so that the new wheel/tires would fit. Prior to the upgrade I had 2 ST tires fail in the past year (both were less than 2 years old from date of mfr), resulting in having to have JC fix a wheel-well.

Would the Goodyear LR D at 65 psi ride smoother than ST tires at 65 psi?

I'm guessing you are referring to the GoodYear Wrangler HT LT215/75/15 LRD. Yes?
It would depend a lot on which ST tires you are comparing. Maybe you could, but I doubt you would be able to tell the difference.

Another tire to consider would be the General Grabber HTS in the 235/75/15 size. It has a an XL rating, index of 109t and load rating of 2271 lbs before derating.
We put these on a cargo trailer in the fall of 2014. They had no trouble or heat build up and was towed at much higher than legal speeds than I care to mention (not by me of course).

Opinion on tires

I was really happy with the MX2's on my 05 tundra. They lasted forever and were very smooth and quiet.

Aparently the michelin LTX 235/75/15 is only available in the M/S 2 and not the AS. Anyone see a problem with a little more aggressive tread pattern?

Nope, I have that size on my van. Smooth and pretty quiet. They'd be my choice for a smaller trailer.

"Would the Goodyear LR D at 65 psi ride smoother than ST tires at 65 psi?"

Not sure. But the point is they are more likely to have air in them and be in one piece than the ST tires which sure helps the ride overall.

That's a good point bill.Lol! I'm torn between the Michelin LTX and Goodyear wrangler LRD. The Michelin is about $20.00 cheaper per tire plus $70.00 rebate on the set of 4. But I don't want to go cheap and be sorry later.
