None of the Michelin XPS rib tires provide enough load capacity to be fitted to 7000# axles.....type 571.120 into your search engine for conformation.

From experience I would rather have LTs rated at 3000lbs then STs rated at 3500lbs on my 7k axles. Plus be able to drive on rougher roads and at higher speeds.

Challenge you to show me a failure from an xps on a 7k axle. Not saying it never happened but I can't find one. We can find tons of ST failures. and I will never run ST tires on my camper.

You probably can't find one because they would NEVER be used as OEM on any 7K axles unless they were dual tire fittings on each end of the axle.

Try $5000 worth of damage on my rig with LT's, 9000 miles. Thankfully they were Goodyears and they paid the damage. Went to G614. One blow out in 50,000 miles with $2200 damage. Goodyear paid damage, new tire free and 25% off remaining 3 tires. Try that with Michelin. They make a good tire but will not stand behind it when they do blow. Personal experience on that one too - -motorhome, 8000 miles, $9000 in damage. Michelin would not even talk to me. No thanks Michelin, no matter how good (or bad) your tires are. I will stick with Goodyear - - - hmmm, if I remember correctly, they are also an American company. Good ole USA.

What LT was it? You left us hanging. Michelin XPS tires has steel carcass. Not but a few on market like this.
