My OEM Michelin's are 6 years old and ozone cracks are appearing. Only 18,000 miles on them, but I am looking into getting new ones later this year regardless. I did some searching and didn't see the Michelin LTX M/S2 LR E 16 listed anywhere. Did they discontinue them and if so, with what?

I did look and found a Michelin Agilis Cross climate which looks like it fits. Has max pressure of 90 psi instead of 80. Looks more like a commercial tire.

Yes, the Agilis is the replacement, I put 2 new ones on the rear of my 30 foot Cambria when I had a blowout. Looking at them in comparison they were very similar in tread design and rode just as quiet.

I think the tire on the left in the link below is the replacement for the earlier LTX M/S 2 LR E 16 Michelin tire that used to come stock on so many Class C motorhomes: https://www.michelinman.com/tires/defender-family.html

I currently have six of these (plus the spare) on our E450 24 ft. Class C, except in size 215/85R16 LR E which is a larger diameter tire to provide a little more ground clearance.

Look new but what date code is on them, do you know how and where to find the code. That is important. Be safe out there..

Related info, 2014 post but the opinions might be worth the read.

I tell my dealer if there over six months old I won,t pay for them so don,t put them on. I do check the date code before I pay. one time on my bornfree I made them take,em OFF . I also write on the work sheet tires must be under six months old or void.

Good deal. All Rv'ers should be aware of how to read a date code and what to know about their significance to the health of their tires. As you know, mileage means very little.

Proper air pressure is mandatory for longevity and cover against the elements when not in use.

Recently began a search on nitrogen filled tires. Interesting research out there that reinforced my feelings that it isn't worth my dollars.

Paying to fill your tires with nitrogen is a waste of money. Normal air already contains 78% nitrogen and is free!
