Regardless of the brand, look at going up in size if you can fit them in the wheel wells.
I am personally sold on Gladiator Tires, I replaced the 235 80 16 E tires with 235 85 16 Gs and am very impressed with how well they performed on the bent axles that shredded the stock tires in about 5K. It took a broken shackle and the tires rubbing on the frame to wear
them out. Have about 25K on the Gladiators when the shackle broke.
