That's exactly what I was planning on doing. Buy the "Tire" and that way I don't have to worry what type/kind/brand tire they have.
As for Alaska, I have a friend of mine who just went there with his Airstream and ended up having to buy 2 expensive tire over there. Not to mention the unpaved roads are hard on tires. ......just saying
