Purchasing new tires 11R 22.5

Think I understand the load rating H being slightly better than G as the H carries more weight.
What I don't understand is the wheel position.
I will need 8 tires, do I order 2 two steer tires and 4drive tires and 2 trail tires? Do I order 8 of the very same tires?
I would like to go to the store knowing what I need to order.
Can someone set me straight or give me a site that will explain this to me. I have never ordered a full set of tires.
The tires I have are getting old 7years but have great tread and side walls are good. Do you het any credit for the old tires?
The tires are going on a 98 Monaco Signature
Thank you for any help. Steve Jordan

Most steer tires are marketed as "all position" tires. Typically, that is what you will find on motor homes, with the same tire at all positions. If the 11R was OEM on your coach and they can carry your axle weight without being at the limit of their capacity, then you have little reason to change size.

Steve: I woiuld weigh each axle if not each wheel position. This would tell you if the OEM 11R's are good enough. I would guess you will be fine. You are fortunate as that size was used on almost every dump truck and highway tractor for years. Very popular and every mfr. makes a tire in that size. Reasonable prices as well. You want an all position tire and as was stated most steer tires are all position. The brand choice is yours. I would not put any Goodyears on as they have a bad reputation that is deserved

I'd order all tires the same and use all position tires.
