Tire Replacement

I need to replace all 4 tires on a 2007 30' Classic in order to have it transported.
Can someone please tell me the best replacement tires to purchase?
I have no idea of which brand or ply to buy.
Thanx for any help.

OEM is ST225/75R15D Goodyear Marathon.
Did somebody steal the tires?

No, I am purchasing a 2007 and it has been sitting for a 1 1/2 years. I dont want to travel 2000 miles and have issues with the tires on the trip. Would rather just replace them before I leave.

The tire size and load range are in my previous post. As for what happened to the old ones, in this day and age, you never know...

Look at the existing tires - are they load range D or load range E? My 32-ft has load range E tires on them, and thus they are capable of handling more weight.

We bought a 2009 30' classic recently, had the original Goodyears that. Showed no sign of wear, decided to chance it. One hour into our trip one disintegrated, belt separation. Damaged panel behind the axle. Replaced all 5 with Carlisle's. the only brand available that day. Very happy with them after 2500 miles.

I'm truly sorry to hear this. It is important to remember that the date of manufacture of a vehicle or trailer usually will not correspond to the date of manufacture of the tires - remember the issue Ford had when they got a "good deal" on tires and bought and warehoused a gazillion of them. Within a short time of delivering the new Ford vehicles, the tires were experiencing failures (that's the nice way of saying they had blowouts.).

When I bought my '87 Excella two years ago, I insisted that it and the truck I bought have all new rubber when I came to take delivery of them. Both have load range E tires, To know more about load ranges, see http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tirete....jsp?techid=55

I still maintain 65 psi for the trailer tires, even though load range E tires can handle 80 psi. I get the same ride, but with a wide margin for weight load per tire - it's all for safety. This is a lesson I learned the hard way - had an inside rear tire blow on my previous RV, an AS Land Yacht 34-ft diesel pusher on my way to the International at Bozeman MT. That tire was an 8-year old Michelin, and when it blew it took with it part of the side of the motorhome. We were traveling at 60mph at the time. Fortunately, it did not damage the genset, which was just to the rear of it. But the sharp loud noise was like someone had shot a 12-gauge in the coach. In Bozeman I bought 7 new tires at a cost of $2,200 - - lesson learned!
