I had BF Goodrich Commercial T/A on my 16 inch motorhome wheels and they were great tires. Make sure the tire load rating is enough.

I agree.
Previous Owner replaced OEM with the BFG Commercial T/A.
I can find nothing to complain about.
Also BFG will answer your e-mail questions if you go to their web site.

They're Load Range E, you can't get any heavier in a 16" tire. Most smaller C's on 350 / 3500 series chassis come from the factory with D's on them.

Actually you can: Our selection of Truck/SUV [x] 235/85 16 Load Range G - tires-easy.com Or, if you would rather have Goodyear 16" load range G tires. I upgraded the 16" tires on our 5er to load range G a year prior to our Alaska trip to decrease the odds of tire problems, it worked.
I'm on my 2nd set of B.F. Goodrich T/A commercial tires on the dually. I am quite happy with their performance and longevity. I figured it they are good enough for the UPS delivery trucks they are good enough for my truck.

Interesting.

The "G" tire is a trailer tire.
How appropriate would that be for the OP question on a MH?

I would think they were designed with a different function in mind.

My bad.

However, I can only imagine how much of a difference in ride quality there would be going from D's to G' on a small Class C m/h. It would be like driving a dump truck.

Be careful of your motorhome has rear duallies. Larger tires might rub sidewalls and tear themselves apart.
