My 5th wheel tires are LT235/85R16 LRG with very low mileage but 8 years old. So, time to replace them. What is generally considered to be a quality American made replacement brand?

I have Michelin XPS Ribs on mine, also 8 years old. Still look virtually brand new. Good tread and no weather checking. Am going to replace with another set of Ribs this spring.

I am on my second set of Firestone Transforce HT with no problems on either set. I do not go over five years even though there is no sign of wear. This brand was recommended by a tire shop owner, LonnieB, on the Montana Owners Club forum. Good advice for me.

People on the various forums have also had good luck with the Maxxis and Sailuns (although the Sailuns are not made in the U.S.). Even ST tires branded by U.S. companies are often made overseas, anyway.

LT235/85R16 LRG '''''''

Sounds like Goodyear G614s.......3750# at 110psi

If so you have one other option in that size and 'G' rated
Sailun S637s.....4400# at 110psi
Not US made BUT getting very good reviews and lower priced then GY G614s

Sailun S637

I second the Firestone Transforce, I am also on my second set. I change them out after 4 or 5 yrs and sell them for 1/2 price. Cheap insurance!

What OB said. You're limited in choices needing to get LRG.

I doubt you'll find an American made tire for your trailer. My Michelin XPS Ribs are awesome but the label says Made in Great Britain.

XPS ribs or Bridgestone Duravis 250s. I have had both and very happy with both. Currently running the 250s. Good luck whatever you decide.
