The Michelin XPS ribs I purchased 6+ years ago have aged out.[emoticon] They have been a great tire.[emoticon] Does anybody have a suggestion for a replacement brand? One tire store told me they don't make that tire anymore.[emoticon] I did see them offered for sale on a couple of websites.

Your input is much appreciated.[emoticon]

A lot of folks - including us - are getting excellent service and reliability from the Sailun S637s (load range G).

I have Discount Tires Hartland G rated and really like them; had them for 2 years (and about 12,000 miles) and they still look new.

You might only find old stock if they really are extinct. Craig

I second the vote Sailun's. We have had ours now for 2 years, when we wear these out will get them again. Good Luck and Happy Camping !!

I believe if you go with a "G" rated tire, you will need 110 lb. PSI wheels. Tire Rack and Simple Tire show XPS Ribs available. Also go on Discount Tires site, that is where I always get mine. Put a new set on May 2019 at a Henderson, NV. Discount Tire shop.

My Goodyear Endurance 235/85R16 are holding up well. 2 years and 15,000 miles no issues. Also, holds tire pressure very good.

XPS Ribs are pretty pricey..Link

Michelin XPS Ribs are available. Last April I replaced my 6 year old XPS ribs with XPS Ribs. No need to go to any other tire, the Michelin XPS Rib is a proven performer.

As a side note my old XPS Ribs were made in the UK while the new ones are from Germany. Much better quality than China.

The XPS Ribs are a commercial grade all steel ply carcass tire. My truck tire dealer says their still available from Michelin.

Many folks find a better cost with the Bridgestone R-238 LT E. Its also a commercial grade all steel ply carcass tire so you won't be down grading going with them.

The R238 and XPS Ribs are the top of the heap in LT E tires for trailers.
