Guidance on tire choice

I'm going to get 6 new tires, thanks to the Michelin Tire recall. I understand there are three possible choices. Need your experience in the decision.

The Michelin M/S2 RRE
The Michelin AT2LREDT
Uniroyal SLARHD/HLRETL

This is the vehicle 1994 Callista Cove 29 foot Class C on a E350 chassis

Use is, for the most part hauling families on long trips, with very little camping involved. Lightly loaded most of the time.The drive and the ride are top priority. With the Michelin LTX M/S LT225/75R16, load range E, tires that are being replaced, the drive and ride are great.

One poster noted with the M/S2 replacement tires his camper was a "squirming mess." Others say they are great. Haven't found anything on the other two tire choices. Comments, suggestions welcomed. Thanks

fighterpilot,
According to the Michlin website the LTX M/S2 are better fuel economy, comfort and wear over the LTX A/T2 with the A/T2 having better off road performance. Wouldn't consider the Uniroyals. If they will allow B. F. Goodrich, then consider the Commercial T/A,s in the allseason tread pattern.

Just got the recall done yesterday and put 6 M/S2 , only drove about 15 miles but they seemed to ride a little better, but that is probably the power of suggestion since they told me they were better tires and would be a better ride, better mileage, and quieter ride. The handling was unaffected best I could tell.

On my C and small A, I ran BFG Commercial TAs. They were awesome in all aspects.
