Urgent help please need Tires for 365 SAQ

I had a blow for the first time yesterday.I am out of state ,down at Jacksonville NC.I plan on getting 4 new tires before heading home.Anybody have recommendations? Tire size is 235/80/16.I was looking at good year tires .My tires are six years old but looked new,however I guess it was time to replace them anyway.i have the 6k axles.I have found other off brand tires and I am thinking,I would be better off with a good year or something close. Thanks

Michelin, BF Goodrich Commercial TA, Bridgestone Durval. Pick any name brand LT tire you can find at a decent price and go happy.
BTY the Good Years mentioned above might cause your more problems. Those tires require 110 PSI to achieve maximum load carrying capacity, and your wheels are not likely rated for that pressure. And at around 250 dollars a pop totally unnecessary for a trailer with 6K axles. I would stick with a name brand LT tire.

We run Sailun 235/80/r16 LRG 14 ply tires. I did a lot of research before buying these. They are not China bombs even though made in china. They actually go through rigorous testing. I keep track of the TPMS on our trips. Even here in Florida when the temp gets in the mid 90's the tire temp remains under 100 and the psi never has gone above 122. We really like them.

I have the G614's and really like them so far, I have a little less than 5000 miles on them since July 2016. My rims would handle the 110 psi, so I just had to get the metal valve stems. Its a very heavy tire as compared to my original Westlake's.

Price - I was watching Amazon for some time till they came on sale - around $280/ea plus tax, free shipping to my door. Then of course had to buy the metal valve stems (about $20) and get them mounted and balanced (around $100 from my local Goodyear store)

Now if you need rims and tires - might check out (Ron) Performance Trailer Braking website for some good deals on both brands of tires and/or tire and wheel combo's.
Good luck!!
Ken

PS: I did just get Disk Brakes (April 2017 - 500 miles) from them as well - and all I can say - I have some great stopping power now. Another great investment for my rig that has a gross weight of 16k.

x2 what saus said. My extensive research lead me to think these might be one of the best values in tires for heavy loads. I do not have enough time or mileage on mine to personally confirm the research and recommendations on which I relied. They appear to be constructed more like commercial tractor/trailer than most other brands marketed for our TTs & 5ers. They are marketed to commercial truckers.
