First, become educated on which tires to use on your unit, not just what the tire place wants to sell you.
Next go to a reputable truck tire shop, ( I used Pomps Tire) and talk with them about what your best options are. I went with a common sized tire that can be found readily on the road. You do not need to buy an RV tire.

There are far to many variables for a straight up answer. What type of RV'er are you ? Full time ? Weekender ? 7-8 times per year ? Back road use ? Highway speeds ?

We all have different needs which is why you need to research the different brands and find out what your MH needs. You probably have a shop that deals in just truck tires. Talk with them. Research this site. There is a lot of good info here. You just need to separate info from opinions.

Good luck.

Without knowing where you're at it's tough to recommend a dealer to check with. I just had new tires put on my Class A at my local Les Schwab dealer, they have locations through out the Northwest which is where the majority of our travels will take place.

Google is your friend. Lots of good tire retailers use the internet.
