Preferred tyre

We are in the market for new tyres for our 5er, never having bought tyres for a 5er, we would appreciate any suggestions for a reliable, good quality tyre.
Thanks

Our 5ver is the 3rd towable RV that came new with Goodyear Marathons. Two of those were Jayco products. "Mr." Jayco must know what's good, and I concur.

I,ve noticed several eagles in the gvw range of 13.5 thru 14.5 with load range D tires. Thats getting to close with the calculations. Ive got them on mine and have gone three seasons without any problems.
