Tire question

In my fantasy world of getting he MH on the road in a week I'm preparing to purchase new tires. I own a trucking company so have plenty of tires purchasing experience for straight trucks, semi tractors and trailers but a MH is different. I have spend thousands putting new tires n trailer only to see a driver blows them out on a curb the next day.

My question isn't so much as to which brand etc. it's more ther idea of a summer tread as opposed to a all weather tread. I'm considering some Yokohama tires and the summer tread tire seems to be a good buy? Not much inform action about summer treads on MH? Ours is a class A 38' DP, we live in Florida and I would not suspect we wold ever be I a motorhome during snow. If I want snow I will fly there and rent a 4x4, I like the sunny warm weather of Florida.

Any reasona summer tread would not be a good idea on a coach?

Summer tread will give you better fuel mileage according to Cummins studies.

Sorry folks, I'm not the best at typing on my iPad and I didn't edit my post prior to submission and it appears to have been written by an illiterate as opposed to an MBA graduate.

An RV is a "summer" kind of vehicle, right?
