Currently Merit All Country Radial A/S LT235/85R16 Load Range E on a Cedar Creek 36RLTS.
I thought since they have been great tires (no problems at all) I would just replace them with the same...seems not so easy to find. I am in Northern Illinois heading to Columbus, Ohio for the month of October - can anybody recommend a tire center between here and there? Thanks

I know you said you have had good luck with them but 90% of the tires that where made in the USA back in 2000~01 now 90% of them are made in CHINA and I dont think you will have the same luck. Michelin XPS rib is by far the best trailer tire in the size that your looking for and there isnt one complaint on the internet on there tires failing. If you are buying new tires there cant be much cost differance from a Ok tire to the top of the line. I would expect to get qoates for the michelin tires around 225 each.

Not that you asked, but I have to agree with xc-mark. I was so pleased with the Michelin XPS Ribs on my previous 5th wheel that I put them on my dually at the last tire change. I only wish they made a load range G for my present 5th wheel!

After extensive adventures involving tire failures on a recent 3,000 mile trip, we ended up with a new set of Firestone tires on our 5er. Not that I especially wanted those, but there was nothing else available in a small East Texas town on a Saturday. We started the trip with a set of Goodyear Wranglers that were 5 years old. By the end of the trip, three out of four had failed, and I threw away the 4th.

We'll see how good the Firestones are. No telling where they may be made.

Moral of this story: If tires are 5 years old, get new ones!

I also think the XPS Rib is the best thing out there for trailers.

Just as a note, they are now available for trailers with 235x80x16 tires in a 75 seris that is the same height as the 80 seris. Trailers that came with Marathons can go back with the same diameter with the XPS. The 85 seris is just a little tight on some trailers.
