Which Michelin Tire

A friend who had 4 out of six three year old tires fail, is going to order six new Michelin tires size 235X85R16. There are three different models listed in that size, all in load range E. For those of you that have Michelins in that size, what model did you get? Results??

Four tire failures in three years? Something else is seriously wrong there. Under inflation, perhaps?

I concur, buddy needs to look for the Root Cause of his tire failures.
Get the coach weighed and inflate according to the manufactures inflation chart would be a start.
Checking tire pressures at least every two or three days while traveling would be step two.
Investing in a good TPMS would also be a suggestion for this amount of failures.

He has TPMS. I had him weigh the coach and it is close to the axle and tire rating. The required pressure is between 75 and 80 psi. He is carrying 80 psi now, however, I learned that for two years he had carried between 70 and 75 psi or about 5 psi below what was recommended or about 100# more weight per tire than recommended. That doesn't seem like much, but I'm guessing that about 10,000 miles under inflated by 5 psi must have taken it's toll until a year later, they failed. I have not had good results with the tier 2 and 3 tires and both of us have great service from Michelin tires in different sizes, so he is going for them.

All criticisms, no answers. I would like this answered also. What advantage to LT tires or P tires. Passenger or Light Truck.?

In the 235X85R16 size I believe they are all an LT and most are Load Range E. Michelin lists three different choices in that size. I'm not surprised there are few responses, as most on this forum prefer a cheaper tire. He has ordered the one recommended by a truck tire shop.
