Manufacturer’s tires to new tires

I found the new flying cloud 2017 tires are of lower performance than other airstream models (sucks) I want to buy the Michelin that are recommended and the accompanying wheels. I need to sell the new existing tires and wheels, Airstream uses an independent BIZ to buy them but pay very poorly. If anyone is interested in taking the four plus the spare one make me an offer! we are in Northern California

What size and bolt pattern are your rims? What size tire? What are you looking to get for the set? I am also in Northern Calif and can come to you.

I will get new all 16"

--------------------------------------------------------------------

The LTX M/S2 in size LT225/75R16/E 115/112R does come with a 6 year or 70000 mile warranty. It has been one of our most popular truck tires for the past 7 years due to their exceptional mud and snow traction. Its special rubber compounds and better lateral water evacuation helps them stop up to 7 feet shorter than leading competitor tires according to third-party testing. The tires will also have the following specifications:

Rim Diameter Option: 6“ – 7”
Overall Diameter: 29.29”
Original Tread Depth: 13.5/32nds
Revolutions Per Mile: 710
MAX Load Capacity: 2680lbs @ 80PSI or 2470lbs @ 80PSI on a dual axle
Weight LB/KG: 38.73/17.57

That seems odd. The major reason I found opposing their installation on my TV was due to consumer and tire-industry reports that the LTX M/S2 Michelins are substandard in wet conditions. Michelin themselves did not recommend them for off-road due to that. (I bought them for my TV anyway since I usually tow on pavement.)

Time to Travel Again.. Tires are OK, but want to replace

My 2010 Flying Cloud 20' single axel has been stationary for 3 years on the original set of tires covered. The tread looks like new, but I plan to replace them in the next couple of weeks due to the fact that there might be hidden issues from sitting so long in the same position.
The recommendation that I received from the Airstream Dealership was for Good Year Endurance 15. Does anyone have a different recommendation?

After a fair amount of research, deliberation and some procrastination I am moving ahead with a pair of GY Endurance (225/75R15) tires this week for our 19' International. No apparent problems with the Marathons (4 years and maybe 13,000 miles) but just in case.

I have liked them on the wet pavement and snow, because of all the deep sipes, they have performed really well ..we get snow and ice in Montana....some off road on gravel...they are good

Is it an Airstream recommendation for your model?

Airstream installed that 16" Michelin tire on the 27' Eddie Bauer trailers and the 2015/17 Classics. The last time I was at the factory, they had a display at the entrance to the Customer Service Center of that Michelin tire and a SenDel T03-66655T wheel to attach to the standard six bolt pattern 12" drum brakes. At that time, they would install them on any 25' or longer trailer.

I retrofitted that 16" tire and wheel combination to our 2014 Classic as soon as I got if off the dealership lot and into the storage unit.

Similarly, when I arrived at Colonial in New Jersey, I had 15" Michelin LTX (P) 235/75R15 XL tires mounted on 15" SenDel T03-56545T wheels (matched the wheels on our Classic) with me ready to replace the stock 14" tires and heels on our 2015 23D International Serenity's stock five lug 10" drum brakes. The 23D has a loaded weight of 6,063 pounds for camping. Our actual axle loads are:

Tongue………928
Front….1,280……1,246 - total front axle 2,526
Rear…..1,376……1,233 - total rear axle 2,609
Total Axles………5,135
Total Trailer….6,063

so the Federal law requiring 10% derating of the 15" Michelin's sidewall rating of 2,183 pounds to 1,985 pounds left lots of load margin on these tires with a bigger tire foot print on the ground for better braking and 44 psi tire pressure for a softer ride for the trailer.
