Unhappy Bias plys...who so hard to find my size??

OK. Just did the bearings on our new to us TT and got a good look at what appears the be the OE Toro XL tires. Has OK tread but cupping on edges and sidewall cracking also bad cracking in center of tread where it was parked for a while. I want to get a new set before we start putting some miles on her this spring. the problem I have is I've called just about every tire dealer in my area and no one can get me what I have. Im looking for 185 80 D13 bias ply rated at 1,6xxlbs but all the dealers can find me are C load range radials with a max of 1,300lbs. i did find one dealer that can order me a set but are truely a no-name brand and they told me would be "ok" for local travels . Need help finding a source of these please (online order is fine). Campingworld just refered me to a local dealer who cant get me them. Open to any ideas at this point. thanks.

Bias tires are really getting to be a thing of the past, Sams club had some last summer when I was looking at tires. Is there any reason you wouldn't consider radials?

Why do you say that, know problems? I've seen these around all over town on trailers/campers but never thought (or had a need) to ask about them until now.

I know many, many people who have had them blow on rv's. Even when relatively new.

Do some research on them and you will hear enough to convince you.
