  1. I recently purchased a 2012 Forest River Class C (32 ft) with 42,000 miles on it. It has a complete set of Michelin Defender LTX tires that were mounted in 2015 under a recall. I'm noticing weather checking on every tire on about 30% of the sidewall. I've experienced several blowouts in the past so I'm rather cautious these days. I now have a TPMS system and will be installing it on this unit. I've been researching replacement tires and while I find quite a bit of information on tires for light trucks I find little objective comparison information for RVs. I'm looking for 225 75R16 in size. I typically travel just a few hours from home but hope to take this unit out west in a year or so. So far, my local tire dealer proposed 3 brands which includes the original Michelin, a Firestone Transforce HT2, and a BF Goodrich Commercial T/A AS2. I read a review on Amazon from an RVer with previous tire issues who loved the Michelin XPS Rib all steel tire but another local truck tire dealer said it was not for rvs but meant mostly for delivery trucks. There is also a new product by Michelin that might be the replacement for the Defender, the Agilis, but hardly any user information. I would very much appreciate any and all opinions on this and especially from people who have been on their tires for several seasons in various climates.
