After reading this post from a few days ago, I checked the codes on the tires on our Minnie and found that I had at least 4 tires (since I didn't crawl underneath, probably all 7 tires) that match the recall info. The only difference I found was that the tire description on the sidewall did not include the letters "LRE". A call today to Michelin Customer Service determined that LRE designated Load Range E, which is what I have.

Michelin suggested three equivalent replacements for these tires:

Michelin LT225/75R16 115/112R LTX M/S2 RRE
Part # 05681

Michelin LT225/75R16 115/112R LTX AT2LREDT
Part # 94398

Uniroyal LT225/75R16 115SLARHD/HLRETL
Part # 90332

I'm wondering what experience others have had with any of the above tires on a Class C?

Here's images of each tire:

Michelin LT225/75R16 115/112R LTX M/S2 RRE
Part # 05681


Michelin LT225/75R16 115/112R LTX AT2LREDT
Part # 94398


Uniroyal LT225/75R16 115SLARHD/HLRETL
Part # 90332


The M/S2 would be the most direct replacement.
The AT2 is pretty aggressive,
The HD/H? Michelin must own Uniroyal... this tread pattern looks better than the Michelin due to the closed shoulder blocks.

I'll probably choose the M/S2 as that's what Costco stocks - which is where I purchased mine.


'00 Four Winds 26Q Class C (Ford E350 V10)
Previously: '96 Kit Sportsmaster 212f fifth wheel coupled to our trusty '93 GMC Sierra K2500
Before that: '91 SunLite poptop truck camper
and the first: a Wildernest flip-top canopy.
