As I also posted in Re: Explorer - Michelin vs Goodyear, I called Michelin and they told me (based on information they get from Ford), that 235/75/15 is the correct tire size for an all terrain tire (LTX M/S) and 225/70/15 is correct size for an all season (LTX M/S). Basically this is a safety issue regarding the strength of the side wall and some more technobabble that I couldn't repeat to save my life. I am currently wrestling with the idea of going with the 235/75's M/S despite the recommendation because I don't like the idea of going with a smaller tire. What to do?
