In 2015 installed Bridgestone LT235/85R16 tires on the monty. There is a lot of tread on the tires, but the outside and inside edges are worn smooth and have been that way since the tires were installed, but the edges still have a lot of rubber. I’m wondering if the outside edges are wearing because of turning and sharp turning when parking the trailer. I am also wondering if the inside and outside edges are wearing because of axels that are not aligned. These are the best tires I have on the Monty and past 5th wheel trailers. I know specific trailer tires have stiff side walls, so I’m thinking LT tire edges are not as stiff and edges may wear,

I would appreciate hearing from other MOC members that have LT truck tires on their trailers and have wearing edges.

Appreciate your feedback

I ran Michelin LT tires on our previous 2012 Montana for 5 years and they looked new when we got rid of that rig. I am not promoting Michelins though. I really like the Sailun S637 tires on our 2018.5 3791RD. I just had Sailun Terramax HLT tires put on the F350 and like them too.

I also have the Bridgestone on my 3582RL sense July 2014 and am experiencing the same as you. I love these tires and have about 22,000 miles on them and they still look great. That said I will be replacing them with Sailun’s next spring. I think the Sailun’s are a better tire for this application. Plus they are MUCH less expensive.

This is pretty much the industry standard for replacement tires. Some say it differently but it still boils down to he bottom line. Load capacity.
