Which Tires

Hi. I have just bought a 1987 Chevy G20 Horizon RV/Camper. Seems to run ok and been in the garage this morning for a look over, a few drips and some minor rust but other than that not too shabby. The mechanic said that the tires weren't the best for the job of an RV (although he did say they were good tires and brand new). The Van does sway a little and roll on the corners (think I may have to upgrade the Shocks too as these were changed by the previous owner and are a little soft). What tires would you all recommend? Current tires are P235/75 R 15 105T. I'm new to the RV world so any help is good.

I've had the best experience with Michelin tire on my previous Dodge and Ford vans. I'll get them again when I need new tires on my current Sprinter ride.

'P' radials are intended for passenger cars, what you want are 'LT' (light truck) tires. If the tire weight rating is adequate and the tires are in new condition then they're probably not dangerous, but you may experience a shorter life and less-than-optimum handling. When replacement time comes around then definitely get LT tires.

As the others have said, look to LT tires.
I've had good luck with Firestone Transforce HT on our Sprinter based class B - if you want a brand recommendation. They're slightly cheaper than the Michelins (which we've also had, and were also happy with).
