Michelin XPS Ribs. I chose an LT tire for my weight ratings of our 09 Montanna 2980rl.

Go to Discussion topic of tires just below general discussion topic. Lots of good info in this section.

Duravis 250's on our 2955RL. Got about 8000 miles on them and they look like new. Came highly recommended from LonnieB.

As long as they don't say "Made In China" on the side, and they are rated to carry the load, you'll be okay. I put Duravis 500s on my 3400RL.

Sorry Hooker I have to disagree with ANY made in China is crap Many folks run Geostar LT G574 with great results .I buy made in America when ever I can but Hey G614's are not cheap and the Geostars are a great choice with a full warranty from LES SCHWAB Tires here on the West coast

I agree with Jimmy. Load rating at maximum speed rating is what I look for. I am sensitive about 'Made in China" because of the economic/jobs big picture. When choosing tires, LOAD and SPEED ratings are the key to safety!

BF Goodrich Commercial TA. Two of them blew (tread separation) and did major body damage. They were under recall, but Goodyear/BFG never notified me. So made in America isn't a guarantee of good quality, but based on my track record of Marathons failing or bubbling, I am sticking with the BFGs for now.
