Well, let me be the first to disagree with UPS34 and ichn2go. I think Michelin did botch it with the XRV's. I also believe they made a change to the XRV to "fix" the problem and I think the pressure change they issued may have been part of that fix.

You certainly are not going to get Michelin to admit to this since it has no desire to find itself in the glue like Firestone did with Ford products.

Freightliner didn't suddenly add GY to its tire option for no reason. MH manufacturers received enough complaints that they wanted to make sure they had an option for those who did not want Michelins.

If you visit the chassis makers who have added GY as an option and poke around a bit they might just tell you that "yes, Michelin had a problem with the XRV but it is solved now." I say this because I did and that is the answer I got.

I have excellent knowledge of Tire construction. I was in charge of the UPS fleet in my area for over 30 years. All tire companys have problems from time to time. I have had many sleepless nights because of Good year and Michelin. I have been to the Michlelin test rack as well as Bridgestones. I have been to the truck tire plant in Danville VA. Where the Good Year was built and also In South Carolinia at the Michelin plant. The point I am trying to make is maintain your tires. This is an important part of the vehicle and sometimes is overlooked. Looking at and kicking the tire is not maintance. Match the right tire for the job. The motorhome builders need to do a better job at this. ccc is low on many units and sure needs to be addressed. We need to be aware of our weight.

In other words, Michelin did have a problem.

What is the CCC on the label in your 39K. We tossed a coin and ended up with the 39W and now wish we'd taken the 39K sitting next to it (DW wanted the WD in the bath area - now we could certainly use the extra room in Galley/Lounge area). I can't find me data on the 39K CCC for 2004 so if you could take a look and let me know I'd appreciate it.
