I can post references in this thread all day long that counter incorrect statements by he said she said comments.
Help Me Choose The Right Tire | How to choose tires | Michelin US
There is a right way, wrong way, and safe way. I try to post the safe ways that are compatible with tire manufacturer standards, the regulations the vehicle manufacturer must follow and NHTSA safety regulations.
Bottom line, it's the owner's choice to be inside or outside of the ropes - so to speak.
p.s. The reference only gives placard/owner manual locations for the automotive industry. Michelin does not build RV trailer tires. However, the FMVSS regulations for trailer tires come from the same documents as your tow vehicle, they are the same number. They identify which type of vehicle they are addressing with line items for that subject when things like locations are different. For instance, the location for a trailer certification label is described as being on the LH forward external section of the trailer.
