I'm over-tired, being placarded for D's, but mine are E's and I usually run them at 80 since I tend to run heavy.
Exactly the same setup as I run, and for the same reasons. My 5th wheel also has a 9,900 lb. max rating, which I never come close to with my dry weight under 6,700 lbs. I don't drink the Maxxis Kool Aid, so I save my money and spend it for other things. Not saying there is anything wrong with the M8008, I've just never seen anything to make me believe they are better and/or worth more money than the Carlisle RH. The N speed rating exceeds any other ST tire rating as well, which is added peace of mind. It is rare that I see more than 65 mph when pulling, so I don't worry about tires anymore. As an added bonus, you can pull into any Discount Tire and they will have them in stock.
