I had a C and an A with 16 inch wheels. I only used BFG TAs and they were great! I had 2 new sets on each.

I just had a pair of the same size installed by Les Schwab for $340 incl for the pair (some times I am so grateful I have 16" and not 19.5" or 22.5" LOL)

So @ $170 that's $1020 for 6.

These are a typical chinese brand but DOT coded, E range tires that seem just fine.

Goodrich is a dependable brand with a nationwide dealer network in case of a warranty claim. The price seems pretty decent for that size, but have you shopped around?

I've been using large Goodrich TA's (265/60R18) on my SUV for five years. They cost a bunch more than that!

We have Coopers on our class A , 16" , and love them !!! I'd have to look, but they were 1100-1200$ for six mounted and balanced... One thing I would do different is get the Metal extended valve stems, which I did not... Now I know...
Made in the USA, and were less than a month old when installed... Check those date codes !!! You don't want tires that have been sitting in a warehouse for several years......

You may have to shop around for used or cheaper tires. RV tires are always so expensive.

I have 19 inch duals on my Bounder. They want $1500.00 plus tax to replace my tires. So I am just going going to go with regular truck tires instead.

Take a look at Firestone Transforce HT. I had them on my smaller Class A and they worked great. The price is very reasonable.

I have suffered from tread seperation while driving on the freeway. It is most unpleasant.

Two weeks before I traded in my class C and upgraded to a class A, I purchased a full set of Firestone Transforce HT's from Firestone for $1100.00, including road hazard. They were a great improvement (more responsive, smoother ride) over the tires I replaced due to side wall cracking. Be sure the tires you're looking at have the proper load / ply rating.
