Question 2020 Sunseeker tires

Does anyone know the brand of tires they are putting on the 2020 Sunseeker class C? Maybe a 2440 DS.

My 2018 has Hankooks. I like them...smooth and quiet ride. They are Korean tires and have, within the last 2 years, built a tire factory in TN.

I have a 3010DS and have the Hankook tires. LT225/75R16 115/112 S. Have 4000 miles on them in 2 months. Very quiet and stabile, vibration free. Have had Hankooks on several work cars and trucks with >200,00 miles total and never a single problem or flat.

I suspect the tires installed on the Ford chassis, are decided and purchased by Ford......not Forest River or any of the motorhome manufacturers.
It had to come off the assembly line with tires of some kind, even before the chassis may be sold to Thor, Winnebago or Forest River. For that matter....even the moving truck rental companies that have a Ford platform before they put the moving box on it, had tires.

Iím sure over the years, Ford works out deals with various tire manufacturers to meet their needs for the individual chassis.

Hankooks on our last Sunseeker, on a 2108 chassis, and on my wife's 2019 Expedition. The only new Ford truck / van / SUV I haven't seen with Hankooks lately is my F-150. It has Goodyear Wranglers as part of the FX4 "off road" package.

Our 2018 Sunseeker 2400W, MB chassis has Continental Vanco Four Seasons.

As others have stated, tire manufacturers make deals with the chassis manufacturers as to the particular tires they put on the units.

Same with the oil companies, etc, etc...

Yes, I fully understand the process of how tires are chosen by chassis suppliers. Unfortunately, your reply is not relevant to my question. Fortunately, several people did reply with the information I was looking for. I have now received my RV and it does have Hankook tires and from the relevant comments received I feel comfortable with the brand. For those that helped, Thank you.
