The long Honeymoon just released a blog entry advocating using LT tires not ST. I have to admit I don't even know what brand of tires my TT has on it. They have been problem free. But I have had plenty of trouble in the past. They especially dislike marathons, no surprise. Take a look, you don't have to watch the whole thing they make their argument in the fir 6 or 7 minutes the rest is just doing it over and over.

But I'll say they make sense to me. Airstream is supply Michelin LT tires on their units as an option.

You have been a member here for a good many years. Have you not read or seen the hundreds of posts we have had on LT vs ST tires? Why open this subject again? It just leads to arguments and then thread closings.. [emoticon]

Can you even get 14 inch LT tires that will fit on a 5 1/2" rim??

With the current crop of upgraded ST tires, it makes using an LT unnecessary. Not saying you shouldn't use them on a trailer, but you don't have to automatically go to an LT anymore. And most Trailer with 14 and 15 inch tires you cannot get a LT tire for them in LR D or E.

Goodyear Endurance in ST 205-75-14 for $99 each is good enough for me.

Most tire issues are user error.

Trailer unlevel loading up 1 axle.
Improper inflation, always on the low side.

That said,
When it's time for tires, always upgrade.

The 16" GY Endurance's have been problem free on our TT and negate the need for LT's. However, I hate the co. and would pay 50% more for a similarly performing tire just to avoid them.
When the time comes for new tires, I'll be checking out all the options.
