Not those but if you want LR F ~~ my dealer will install Carlisle 235/85/R16 LR F 95 PSI for $104 each and make an offer on your OE tires. Carlisle has a good reputation and availability is better than many others.

Not sure about those. But something to think of if you want to stay around that price range is a set of Sailuns. They're G rated and have been getting really good reviews. Keystone Fuzions come with Sailuns now.

By the way. Make sure they put on high pressure metal valve stems.

And make sure your rims are rated for 110# psi. Even 80# psi should use metal valve stems.

I have about 6-8 weeks to figure it out before RV comes in but definitely will get metal valve stems. If I was in NC I'd come by for the Carlisle tires but I'm in PA.

Any tire dealer should be able to get Carlisle overnight from their wholesaler.

What's the gross weight of the camper they're going on?

I personally would only buy Maxxis m8008 for up to 12-13,000 lbs. Anything much over that and I'd be looking at the Sailun S637 or Goodyear G614.

I'm assuming they still come with the same wheel as mine. If so, they are rated to handle 110 psi and I "think" 3750 lbs.. Can't recall exactly the weight rating but the air pressure is good.

Do they look like these?

The booklet says 18,000 but it maybe up to 20-21,000 due to axle upgraded to 7K.
Here's the picture of the wheel. Do they already have metal valve stems, I didn't pay attention.
