So my question is. What do I buy? Good year or maxxis ( I think that's the name) or is there something else?
We put the Goodyear Marathons on our Rockwood. We also bumped up a load rating as well. Another thing to consider is a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TST Model 507 is the one a lot of us use). Finally, get a torque wrench and check the torque on your lug nuts every 500 or so miles.

Oh, and welcome to the forums!
