Tires you use

On the way south for the winter blew front right tire. Road service from Good Sam's replaced with Yokohama 245/70R19.5 load G. When we got to next stop I went ahead and replaced other front tire with the same. Question is, I'm going to replace the back 4 tire's. Should I put the same tire on the back so they will all match or should I replace with something else? If so what would you guys suggest?

I've got a uniformity issues, probably do to many years as a sailor, so I would go with matching unless the Yoko's are ridiculously expensive. I've got one Goodyear and five Kelley tires on my coach due to a valve stem seal failure. The Goodyear is out my normal line of sight mount on the inside of a duel so it doesn't bother my too much.

Rears differing from fronts is not a problem.

Best to have all tires on the same axle be as much alike as is practical. Same size, for sure. Same tread pattern is desirable too, so having all the tires on the rear axle be the same manufacturer and model is the best choice.

There is no need to be the same as the front axle, though. Some coaches may even require a different size front & rear.
