Need tire replacement. Pain!!!!

I have 4 Castle Rock 225 / 75 R 15 tires. Used for 11 months. One needs to go. I have s good size cash in it. I have tire coverage but am very tempted to replace all 4. What brand do you recommend and where are good places to install. I'm hoping my tire coverage will cover part of one tire.

Most posters here are going with Maxxis.
Discount Tire seems popular too for newer stock date codes.

Ditch the 15" wheels and upgrade to 16" wheels with 225/75-16" light truck tires.

Had a blow out with fr factory bombs this summer just west of Bella flouce SD. Dealer there sold only maxxis she upgraded me from c to e and I just replaced all four. Tires cost about. $145 total per tire mounted and Balanced including taxes. No warranty dealer said there are no warranty on tt tired anymore and the she had checked and the maxxis was the best brand. I couldn't go to 16 tired as there wasn't room for them to fit. I checked the Internet for price comparison as her price was right in line plus I didn't have to go anywhere else. I had about 9k on the blow out and it was 2years old. Good luck in your decision making

We are home today instead of camping because one tire on our 5er was flat when we went to take it out of storage yesterday. OEM tires on our Flagstaff are Ridgway Sport ST "Power Touring" 225/75R15 LRC. I think they need a longer and catchier name.

Spent too much time today searching for replacement Maxxis that I will have to buy online as nearest dealer for them is over 100mi away. Will be talking with Real Deal Tires in Hickory, NC and City Limit Tire and Service in Sparta, NC in the AM as they had the best deals I could find right now. Will have a local tire shop do the R&R, balance and new, metal stems if any can fit the cheap China alloy wheels on the unit.

What did the tire shop who sold you the Maxxis LRE replacements suggest for inflation pressure for the LRC that came off? BTW, I think you got a good deal on those tires at $145 tax, tag and title out the door.

I ordered the Maxxis M8008 tires from a Firestone store. They seem to be good tires, but I've had good luck with Goodyear and Carlisle also.
