Call or email them. Ask if it's OK to use XPS Ribs to replace OE ST tires.

It might be because you are not to put LT tires on a ST rim. My rims are made for high pressure tires, I have G614 , pressure 110lb. When these tires wear out I'll be ready to quit camping , just find a place to park camper at. Probably at the beach

Nope, not rumour. Once you mount LTs on a trailer, most manufacturers will not warranty them. In fact it's hard to find a tire store that will even sell you road hazard for trailer tires. The only way I got a LT trailer tire warrantied was when the tire store owner turned in the claim and said it came off my truck. But still worth it to me to run LTs on my rig.

I found that locally tire shops will not sell a road hazard insurance on LT tires, so I went to Walmart. Walmart would sell road hazard on LT tires. I wonder if Walmart would sell the road hazard on trailer tires, plus give the warranty on the tires

Hey spock. I hadn't tried Walmart. Hopefully if you needed it they would honor it. I had one dealer that sold me road hazard on the trailer, but when I went to use it, they said no. At least they gave me my money back

Discount tire not only installed the LT tires but also put the road hazard on them. I don't know what state or place that wouldn't but here in Texas it is not a problem. So maybe we need to qualify our answers instead of making blanket statements.

I'm sorry, I live in the southern part of North Carolina and that's what I meant when I said local

Lou, I've tried in NM, AZ, and NV. Same answers. Have you actually had to use yours yet? Like I said, I was sold road hazard for trailer tires once and was denied by the issuing company when I tried to use it. They didn't care what state I was in. Hopefully yours actually works, but it is something to be aware of.
