I have your exact model & year PA. I can't say with authority what tire is best, etc., etc. My rig is much higher mileage, but I don't know how many miles were on my Michelins when I replaced them last October. We've only had it a little over 2 years. I chose the Michelins because that was what was on them before and with the FMCA discount I effectively got 1 tire free. Also, I couldn't find the right size elsewhere and I didn't want to take chances on how well a different size would do. (How do you get a tire place to mount tires you bought elsewhere for free? How do they make any money?)
We had the rig for about 2 years before a service place noted some very slight sidewall cracking had started. Again, I don't know how long, in time or miles, the tires had been on the rig. The Michelins are definitely expensive, but I wanted to rely on the right tire. So, years ahead, I'll find out how these last.
Speaking of lasting, your rig is 13 years old and still has the original tires? That should tell you something about how well the tires last. Esp. without being driven much, I thought tires would deteriorate and sidewalls start cracking before that.
How did you get the flat? Something in the tread or did the sidewall give out?
Oh, another thing: when I bought the tires I made sure to check the manufacture date on them. They had all been manufactured within 3 months prior. When you're spending so much on tires, don't buy anything that's already years old.
