Tires - Opinion Free

I've been researching tires for the last 24 hrs now. It appears that asking for opinions about tires is about as useful as asking if Jesus would be a Republican, Democrat, or Independent.

So, let me try asking for one factual statement and one unqualified thought:

1. What brand/model/size tires are currently on your coach.
2. If you were to replace your tires tomorrow, would you replace them with the same tire (yes or no).
3. If no, without reason, justification, or excuse - What is the brand/model/size tire you would replace them with.
