Buy Goodyear Marathons and at least keep the majority of the money in the US of A.

Glad I read the thread, It had been my understanding that D rated tires are only rated for 65 miles per hour at 65 psi?

Who else has had the trail America tires? I have about 1800 miles on mine and they are wearing fast. They are wearing even but fast. They are on my toy hauler and have never overloaded it. They are Load range C tire and I always keep them right at max pressure of 50 psi. I do have two fresh water tanks that equal 106 gallons and they are right over the axles and then put a 600 pound quad over that sometimes. I wouldn't think that would be an issue but I haven't read much good about these tires. I will probably have to replace next year and plan on getting the Goodyear marathons in a load range D with metal valve stems hopefully that will fix it.

Trailamerica Tires

Reviving this old thread again. I have the Trailamerica tires 205/75/15 on our 2010 Wildwood and they are pretty much used up. the sidewalls are showing signs of bulging and the tread is getting thin. Thought I would look here and see what people are running.
Looks like Marathons or Kumhos or Maxxis.
Might come down to price and availlability but it needs to happen soon!

Maxxis Tires

I had a set of the Maxxis tires on in May of last year. Since then we have been from Texas to Vancouver, Texas to the East Coast down to Florida and several shorter trips. A little over 15,000 miles. We are leaving next week on a roughly 5,000 mile trip to Southern Calif. The tire look great and do not show significant wear. No problems of any kind. They are expensive, but in my opinion worth the cost.

This is totally true. IF you require 65 PSI to support your load and the maximum pressure on the tire is 65 PSI, your maximum speed is 65 MPH.

IF - the load can be supported at 55 PSI with that D rated tire, you can over pressure (up to 10 PSI) Marathons (and I assume others) to increase the speed limit up to an additional 10 mph.

I didn't find them "expensive" considering what I was getting for the money.
Yes, there are cheaper tires out there, but they are CHEAPER tires!
As for the OP, even if he is always going 70 mph, the Maxxis should be fine.
