Best Tires for my 2017 Airstream Interstate Ext

Bought this AS in December and it only had 6,500 miles. It has been winterized and stored most of the last 6 months. I think it has the original tires.
I'm thinking I probably need to replace the tires.

What is the best tire recommendation ? I've read a lot about problems with the GYM tires. Mercedes seems to recommend using THEIR tires (probably because they are twice as expensive and they get the money!) Ha Ha.

Regardless, I want the best. Best for all weather. Best for the ride. Best for long lasting.

What do you guys recommend ?? Any idea how much new tires will cost ?

THanks for the adviec

As pointed out in the other thread, GYM's are Goodyear Marathons and those are trailer tires. You have a powered vehicle.

Mercedes doesn't make tires.

And IMHO there doesn't appear to be any reason to exclude or include any particular tire manufacturers from the list.

So go to Tire Rack and put in your tire size and select from there. There will be differences that you will have to sort through.

Happy hunting!
