Replacing OEM Tires

I have a 2012, 33 ft Cruiser 5th wheel with ST235/80/R16 original equipment tires. Can I use Michelin XPS Rib 235/85/R16 tires on my factory rims.

I made the switch 18 months ago. LT235/85R16, BFG Commercial T/A. Totally happy.

This is a link to a response on Woodalls website about Michelins.

I had Commercial T/A tires on my last trailer and plan to put them on my Rushmore later this year. Good tire and much cheaper than the Michelins.

put the BFG commercial T/A 's on mine after the Tow max tires wore out. Never had a problem with them and still look new. I am guessing I will have to change them because of age before the tread is gone.

Another vote for the BFG Commercial TA's. You won't be disappointed if you go with them. Quite a bit less $ than the Michelin Ribs.

Having owned travel and 5th wheel trailers for the past 25 years. I learned a lesson a long time ago to replace the tires every 3-4 years whither they look like they need changing or not. I had plenty of thread on the tires but they seemed to blow out or go flat when I pushed the 4th year on the trailers. Here is Southern California, our sun and ozone breakdown trailer tires over time.
