Yeah, I know, opinions are like ******, everybody's got one
But . . . why not consider any of the ALL-STEEL (AS) 235/85/16 G-rated tires by Sailun, Gladiator, or Hartland (America's Tire/Discount Tire house brand)? With not much effort dealin' online or at AT/DT, you can get a set of 4 for $650-$750. Make sure they're the ALL-STEEL versions, and not the polyester sidewall versions.
These AS 235/85/16 G-rated tires weigh 60 lbs. Most E-rated 235/80/16 tires only weigh 37-39 lbs. When you pick up each of these tires the weight difference is dramatic.
The AS Sailuns have a stellar reputation on every RV forum I've visited. To my knowledge there hasn't been any documented failures of AS tires . . . however, there have been reported failures of the GS614's. I've been told GY may repair damage caused by a GS614 blowout---whether that's worth double the cost is your call.
I put a set of four AS 235/85/16 Hartlands on my Voltage TH for $670 out the door, balanced, mounted, with 4-steel valve stems. They're load rated at 4080 lbs. at 110 PSI and speed rated N/87 MPH(**)---higher than the GS614's and Sailuns. You can typically get four Sailuns shipped to your door for $600.
Good luck with whatever you choose!
(**) The AT/DT website has them incorrectly listed as M/81 MPH. In reality they're N/87 MPH.
