    Tires

    I just ordered Michelin XPS Ribs for my Reflection. My trailer has yet to take its first trip, and I planed it that way. I will not trash the factory Westlake tires that were factory on this unit, I have several utility trailers I can put them on. A China tire has it's place in the market, but not under the fenders of a fiberglass camper.

    Re: Tires

    I understand your concern...I'm using a 507 TPMS from TST that makes me a little more comfortable towing with the OEM tires.

    I coordinated with Micah Staley to ensure we got a 303 with the mod to allow for 16" wheels and swapped the Goodrich Commercial T/As from our Laredo, leaving the trade in with new Chinese tires.

    Re: Tires

    So....I should be thinking about changing tires? Love our Reflection but if the tires aren't recommended...in the Spring I'm putting our 5ER at a seasonal site and most likely next fall take it to the southwestern states for a couple of months. Advice?? Thanks!

    Re: Tires

    Just got Michelin XPS Ribs installed yesterday at Discount Tire. Although we picked up our 337 at Okla. City dealer in Nov., our first trip will be in a couple of weeks. Spent a lot of time reviewing options on tires and other things. Really pleased I got the new tires and looking forward to a lot of travel this year. We start loading up the trailer today.

    Re: Tires

    235/85/16; slightly larger than the original 80's, but work well.

    Re: Tires

    You are correct, that's what I used. I have used 245/75/16 in the past, I just like the looks of the taller tire better. Very little difference once on the wheels. Hard to beat Ribs on 6000lb axels.
