Tire Replacement.

I currently have Michelin LTX M/S LT225/75R16 on my 32' Jayco Greyhawk and the tire shop says they "can't source the Defender LTX model in that size by Michelin"

They suggested the following tire...

Miichelin Agilis crossclimate lt225/75r16

Any thought on this tire or is there a better replacement?

X2. Iíve run the same tires LTX on my truck and have been happy with them. I got the same response when trying to find replacements (LT235 85R16 LRE). The Agilis seems to have mixed reviews. Iíd love to hear any thoughts from JOF users.

I have had them on my 3500 since the summer of '21. I've probably put about 20k-25k miles on them and they still look brand new. They are way better than the Nexen brand that were original equipment that I replaced at 15k-20k miles. I'd buy them again.

Just replaced my 2017 Greyhawk tires after a tread separation on the freeway. Installed the Michelin Agilis Cross Climate ones after doing some research. They appear fine and matched the load range on the Michelin tires I replaced. Only have driven 15 miles or so on them but heading out in a week. After experiencing a blowout I fully expect to be on edge with every little bump.

I purchased the Cross climate as well recently after I had issues with my tires on one side, heavy tank side, my error for not rotating them

Happy so far and the load rating is high which is good

Check out the C rated version of that tire. It is a commercial rated tire. Rated for a little more weight per tire vs the lt version. I will be ordering a set of them this spring.

Costco has a special on Michelin tires until the end of the month. You get $150 off if you buy 4 tires. The C version of the Agilis Cross Climate 225/75/R16 is going for $281 each. If you can find someone else that needs 6 tires, both of you can get 3 of the deals (12 tires). Otherwise, you get the $150 off the 4, and then you'll have to buy the other 2, but no discount of the 2.

The load rating on both my new and old tires is 115. There are higher load ratings available at higher cost.

I was going to purchase from Costco but apparently they don't do motor homes. Ended up going to America's Tires which had the best price. Purchased online and set up an appointment online. Pretty easy.

Wherever you go make sure they can do your rig. Also, get the load range you currently have or better.

Thanks, I will check them out

You have to be a little careful with the new Cross climate tire in LT form. They are rated at 2680 for a single @ 90PSI as opposed to 80 for the Hankook tire or the previous Michelin.

I recently replaced my original Michelin tires at 31,000 miles that came with my 2017 Greyhawk 29ME with the Michelin cross climates. Drove from Rhode Island to Disney world in Orlando (1,500 miles) with no issues through high winds and pouring rain. while I think the original tires were a bit better, theses tires performed well and may do even better if we see slush/snow on the return home to New England. Bought them online for $213 apiece and had them installed locally for $200 for 6 tires. With discounts the total cost was about $1,500. Sold the old tires that had nice tread on them for $100 to a nonprofit truck driver.
