I personally have no problems with the Michelin XPS Rib or any of their vast inventory of Light Truck tires. I live less than 10 miles from Michelin of North America. Their publications provide the latest in industry standards. They are always promptly up dated and those found on the internet are current and accurate.

When someone quotes their information out of context they show a great deal of disrespect to a great manufacturer that strives to provide the information needed for vehicle manufacturers to make their selection of OE tires. Every single one of Michelin’s documents has an ending endorsement that informs the reader Michelin may change the information at will. To keep abreast of their policies the reader should insure they are in fact reading the most current document.

I think the OP has the answers looked for so I’m outta this one.

iRV2.com is about far more than just publishing advertising brochures. If you take a look at our mission statement,

Supporting thoughtful exchange of knowledge, values and experience among RV enthusiasts.
we're sharing our experience regarding the use of the XPS Rib over many years to solve tire problems experienced by 5th wheel owners. The plain and simple truth is that they work and have worked for many individuals for many years. That's practical experience.

To me, that's more valuable than any advertising brochure. YMMV, of course.
