One of our members switched to the following tire.

The LT235/85/16E is 3040#. It fits the OEM wheels that the 225 75 16 rolls on and at a little over one inch in diameter larger will offer you about 1/2” more ground clearance while fitting the wheel wells. Seems to me to be a good option bc it offers two advantages over the stock LT225 75 16E.


I think the only issue with those would be that they might touch on the duals. Mine are very close at the 225 size.

I have a friend that did that as well. He purchased some BFG traction tires. They were pretty beefy and I remember they didn't touch on his 28ft bigfoot, no slides but still a pretty heavy rig.

For the E350 and E450 chassis.

CLICK HERE for Michelin's extra capacity "E" rated tire. (500-600 pounds more per tire compared to the standard "E" rated tire)

Michelin's installed today. Very happy so far. Drove about 5 miles so not a great test but felt smooth. Install went well except the tire shop missed the locating pin the first time so rear wheel was on crooked. They were pretty embarrassed but got it fixed quickly...

Tires are made in France FYI. Makes sense since they are a euro rated tire technically.

Glad I replaced them as some of the tires were coming close to the pull date and right before I took it in I noticed a split on the sidewall of the passenger outer dual.
