Just put Michelin Ribs on CC 34RLSA

I put on 4 Michelin LT 235/85/R16's Load Range E and just did a 5,000 trip this summer and had no problems with them the entire time. Saw too many rigs on the side of the road this year with tire problems. Do not trust the ST tires....

Thanks for sharing your experience. I have the same tires on mine now

Suitable replacements for the ST235/80R16E OEM tires on RV trailers.

ST235/85R16E - 3640# of load capacity at 80 PSI
LT235/85R16G - RST - 3750# of load capacity at 110 PSI
ST235/85R16F - 3960# of load capacity at 95 PSI
ST235/80R16G - 4080# of load capacity at 110 PSI
205/75R17.5 LRF - 3525# of load capacity at 109 PSI
215/75R17.5 LRF - 3530# of load capacity at 100 PSI
215/75R17.5 LRH - 4805# of load capacity at 125 PSI

There are others but those above are very close on overall diameter and section width of the ST235/80R16E

You should always ask your trailerís manufacturer about replacements before you go out on the limb all by yourself.

Lots of talk about different brands. How many of you have your wheels balanced? I feel that balancing is every bit as important as tire pressure and brand. My 2 cents.

I can't imagine anybody having a tire mounted on any high speed application without balancing, or a tire shop not insisting on it. We probably don't talk about it as we feel it's a given? But you do make a good point.

Wheel balancing is a requirement of mine

Does the factory balance the tires? I don't balance my tires on the camper. When I put new tires on the truck they are balanced but not after that. I just rotate the tires

My last 2 5vers came with balanced tires. Don't know who did it. Of course I changed them out for LTs when we got 'em home. I rotate and balance tires on the TV every 5 to 10k miles. It's free. I rotate and balance the 5th wheel tires once a year when I repack bearings. I can't imagine only balancing tires once on a TV. I notice the difference in ride in about 8-10k miles after the last balance.

I don't know how to repack the bearings, I have easy lube. My Cedar Creek came with LT tires
