RE: Changing Tires

So here's the science behind the tire aging limit: Rubber compounds age according to temperature. It's called the Arrhenius equation. A quick and dirty version is: Chemical reactions double with every 10°C. What that means is that tires in - say - Phoenix age much more rapidly than tires in - say - Minneapolis. That's one of the reasons why there is disagreement between users. Then we have the issue of trailer tires. Many of these weren't designed well and failed early. This had little to do with aging and a lot to do with material fatigue. This is also influencing how people perceive tire life.

RE: Michelin Cross Climate C Metric Tires

This is one of those quirky things. C type tires are a European based tire standard, where LT tires are a US based tire standard. Normally there is very little difference between European and US tire standards, but this is one of those exceptions. Michelin is not the only tire manufacturer making these kinds of tires, but they are hard to find. Even looking on Tire Rack's website doesn't bring them up on a size search.
