2008 Lexington 283GTS - New Tire Suggestions Please

Just bought a good used 2008 Lexington 283GTS that have the original Michelin M/S tires (coach has 16000 mi) that were made in June 2007. They are going on 6 years and the sidewalls are showing some cracking so we have decided to replace all 6 tires (chassis is the Ford E-450 SuperDuty). We have priced new Michelins M/S tires as well as Firestone TransForce HT, Uniroyal Laredo HTS, BF Goodrich Commercial TA and Nexen Roadian HT tires. We think Michelins are a bit pricey and are leaning towards the Firestone TransForce HT tires. We would appreciate your suggestions as to which tire is the best value for our RV. Size is LT225/75/16. Thanks

I am a big fan of the Hankook Dynapro line. They sell an AS in that size. They are very durable with good traction for a fair price. I also like the Commercial T/A. I know several people who have run the TransForce AT on their dually's with good results as well.

A rainy day camping is better than a sunny day at work.
