Michelin XPS RIBS tires


Our 5th wheel has been stored for two years.  I stopped by today to check the pressure in the tires because we are getting ready for a trip next week.

All 4 tires had only lost 2PSI each during those 2 years.  MY previous 3 sets of tires would lose 10 to 20PSI just sitting for 3 months.

I am very happy with the Michelin XPS RIBS tires.

Larry,

Just out of curiosity, how is the overall quality of those tires been?  Any issues with getting blowouts replaced?  Does Michelin cover repairs to an RV if a blowout damages it?

Our Mobile Suites has the Goodyear G114 tires, and I've read that Goodyear is good to work with on warranty and repairs.  Our tires are now at least 8 years old and still good as far as looks go, but I'm planning on replacing them before we move again.

Terry

From what I read Michelin does not have the replacement/damage repair warranty GY does. I stick with GY for all my trailer tires!!!

Michelin doesn’t make a bad tire - just let them tell you when you call in for a warranty consideration. Having worked for them for 2 years thier arrogance is unbelievable. Goodyear has always been customer concentric. If you have an issue there is usually just two reasons - attitude. Yours or the service rep.

So far haven't had any problems with the tires. Due to illness in the family we haven't done much travelling since the tires were new. I'm just amazed at how they hold air. It reminds me of back in the days when tires had inner tubes and were made out of rubber.

Before I bought the tires I read through several RV, transporter and medium duty truck Forums, based on what I read the Michelins seemed to be favored by drivers who put a lot of miles on their trucks and trailers. A majority indicated the tires out performed anything they had used previously. Most posted they had gotten many more miles on the Michelins with less wear indicated and fewer tire problems than other tire brands.

Based on the forum posts it was Maxxis, Michelin and Goodyear in order of satisfied posts. The Michelins ranked higher on the transporter and Medium Duty forums than the other 2 brands plus the tire shop I went to had the Michelins in stock.

I'm active on several other forums and the Sailun tires are held in as high regard as any of the others you have listed. I'm surprised they didn't come up in your reading or you didn't mention them. They are also very popular with commercial truckers.

All I use is the Michelin XPS on my Teton. Great tires, zero problems and yes, they do hold air.
