What do you recommend replacing with? Brand, size and E or G rating. Thanks

My 2012 had the Michelin tires under the recall. Due to lack of availability of Michelin replacements I went with BFGoodrich and I'm glad I did. They seem to handle better, maintain pressure more consistantly and run 5-10 degrees cooler than the Michelins.
Concerning replacement at 26K miles I don't think that is too bad. RV tires are always loaded at or close to their max ratings not like your car or pickup truck which are loaded well below their ratings almost all of the time. Also most RVs sit for long periods of time and deteriorate from age, ozone and UV.
