ST215-75-14 Tires For Casita

Hey Folks:

Thinking about upsizing my Casita tires from 205s to 215s, which are only about 1/2" taller and wider but carry more weight. Any comments from those who have made this change? Thanks!
Mike

Mike;

The Michelin XCA 205 75R 14 load range D that we are using are rated at 3660 (two tires) at 50 psi. up to 4560 at 65 psi .

Throw in a couple of nice wheels and you are there.

Berwyn had a Carlisle go and is converting to Michelins too. He has one and the other is on order.

Michelins XCA

Understand the Michelin is also 1/2" taller and wider, Nick, even in 205 size, than the standard 205-75-14 Goodyear Marathon. Certainly have not ruled out going to the Michelin...out of curosity, does the Michelin have LT on it or ST or anything else.

How is that good looking Tundra doing, Nick?

tire woes

:o We got caught last week with a flat and had to buy 2 tires in Lexington Va. and didn't have a choice if we wanted to get back on the road. They turned out to be tire Goodyear's but not Marathon in the right size but 8 ply sidewall, load "D", at 2042 lbs. per tire and non radial. Later when I got looking at them there was a note on the sidewall that said "property of UHaul do not sell". I still haven't figured out how I got sold these but if UHaul uses them they must be a rugged tire. We are continuing our trip from Fl tomorrow going through Niagara Falls to Ontario Canada, Nova Scotia, PEI, down through New England and back to Fl. I shall make a report on how these tires do after they go through this trip:O . The Carlisle tire I lost the tread on only had about 1100 miles on it and I was leary of this trip with them to begin with after reading all the woes everybody was having with them. I did have these new tires balanced. Happy Camping, :wave Bill & Karen
