Tom, that's a very good deal! The cheapest I could get the Michelin XRV was about $360/tire with the FMCA Discount. That's a big difference for one, let alone 6 tires!!!

As I said, the PO put those on my steering axle and they've been great tires except that they are LR-G, which is a little stiffer ride than a LR-F.

I talked to the manufacturer rep on them a couple of years ago and he told me they have a 5 year defect/workmanship warranty....

The ratings are very good and at least 2 of them are from motorhome owners.

Good find!

For that price and the difference I might replace my steering axle tires with them!

I found the warranty page:


Gladiator Tires

Gladiator Tires are known for their strong value in the trailer tire and ATV tire segments. Their trailer tires feature highly durable carcasses that can withstand the heat and punishment a trailer typically endures - while their ATV tires offer a great value, and a significant upgrade over most original equipment tires. All Gladiator tires are covered by a standard warranty featuring free replacement for materials and workmanship issues for the first 10% of tread life, and a pro-rated warranty thereafter.
Found more on Gladiator tires:

Did you know all Load Trail Trailers are equipped with Gladiator tires from API (American Pacific Industries). API is an established leader in the tire industry. API offers a full range of tires including commercial truck, performance passenger, ultra high performance passenger, light truck, agricultural, ATV, OTR, bias truck, bias trailer, steel wheels for commercial truck and high speed trailer applications. API manufactures and distributes premium quality products with the latest cutting-edge technology. These are distributed under many different brand names, some of which are Gladiator, Advanta, Minos, Zenna-UHP, Hartland, O'Green, and Forgiato-UHP. Each tire line is manufactured and designed to satisfy the world's most demanding drivers.

Gladiator tires bring best of class performance, warranty, national distribution, and very attractive design to the table and Load Trail is proud to be one of the first to offer Gladiator radial tires standard on all trailers.

Gladiator tires are all steel belted construction for added strength and stability and the advanced tread compound is designed to improve fuel economy and weather checking. Gladiator quality speaks for itself and are environmentally conscious with their trademarked Ecosafe process.

One of the most attractive benefits is expanded geographical warranty coverage. API is a long standing company and their products can be found in many retaillers across the United States and Canada making tire warranty more flexible and convenient. If you ever have any issues at all, call the Gladiator hotline that can be found on a new sticker on Load Trail trailers.

They are well known in the trailer and ATV market evidently....

My motorhome came with 22.5 Samsons on it. I could never get the front to balance, and finally a Speedco rep told me that they are good truck tires because there are made of a harder compound, but not good for RVs because of that. The tread was good, but finally took them off the front and put Firestones on. What a difference! Wish I had done it 20000 miles ago. They are still on the rear, and seem to be fine there, but would definitely not put them on the front.
