Tires: XPS Ribs vs. LTX M/S?

A friend of mine just called and asked if I could ask you guys about a tire issue he's having. He is in his Class C, on a trip between CA and OK, and has blown a tire. He knows that he's due for new tires, but is having some issues with locating the Michelin XPS Ribs (10 ply "E" rating, with metal mesh sidewalls), which apparently have to be special ordered for his RV. The Tire store recommended the LTX-M/S tire, with the same ratings, but it doesn't have the metal sidewalls. Is it really going to make a difference? He doesn't mind the extra money, if it's a safer tire having the metal sidewalls. Of course, it is ironic that the tire with the metal sidewall is what blew out when he hit one of California's many potholes!! He's on the road, so I'm going to send him texts of your comments. He knows he's going to be buying new tires all the way around on his RV (save that new tire as a spare), but wants to make the smart/safe choice. He's got basically the same RV as I do (31' Winnie), so I'm also interested.:) What would you recommend. I know that I probably should have posted this in the technical forum, but when I looked there, most of the tire stuff was for P/Us and trailers...not much for a Class C. Thanks in advance.

RE: Virginia to Maine

Running up I-95 may seem terrible, but you won't have any height issues, as the trucks go that way, and they are going to make sure that they don't hit any low heights. It really depends on what you want to do.....sightsee during the trip, or get up to Maine ASAP. I drive I-95 all the time, from NC to NY and often up to Boston, so I'm familiar with it....and as I said, it may not be scenic, but there are plenty of stops and service areas...and you well seldom be alone on the road. Best advice is to try and schedule your trip through NYC, to try and a avoid the worst of the traffic....for me, that is after midnight, but before 6:00 inm the morning.
