I am going to replace all my old tires on my 2007 25ft. AS Safari. Any suggestions about makes and models? Current running GY Marathons.

I replaced mine last year with Maxiis, load range D. I have a nice cushion when it comes to load capacity and I will watch them closely. There are many who will suggest that you move up to a 16 inch wheel and go with LT tires. I am fine with mine but will admit that I live up north and usually don't travel during periods of extreme heat. I also keep my speed between 60 and 65.

Goodyear has a rather bad reputation here on the forum. I am not aware of any other brands out there that get as good reviews as the Maxii, at least when you stick with ST tires. Tow Masters show up now and then?

My GY marathons are 6 years old and have over 40,000 miles with no problems at all.
