Tires for 35RLTS

I have a Jayco 35RLTS that for medical reasons has sat still for 4 years without use. I am going to replace the tires as they have not been covered and sat in the sun all that time. Tires are 235/85R/16 LR E. I am thinking that LR F would be better than the E as I have had a number of blow outs with the E's.
What is the recommended brand that I can go to without breaking the bank as I am retired? I prefer American made but can compromise if I must. I was thinking of Sialon's , just want to be sure.

Best deals I've found are on
That's where I got my Sailun tires. Not American made but they have a very good reputation by those that use them.

We went from China-bomb Trailer Kings on our Raptor to Sailuns about 9 years ago. We ran them for four years with no trouble at all. Great wear!

I'm thinking your trailer has 7000# vehicle certified GAWRs. With your current tire size, you're not getting much in load capacity reserves from them at 80 PSI.

The considerations for adding load capacity with your replacements include replacing all valve stems with steel ones. Do you have an air compressor that will easily provide 95 - 110 PSI? With a 2009 model year your wheels may be rated for 3640# of load capacity at 80 PSI. You will need wheels rated higher than 3640 to take advantage on the load capacity reserves LRF or LRG tires will provide.

I'm not a brand pusher. There are more than a dozen tire manufacturers building steel cased ST235/85R16 LRG tires. IMO getting them from a local retailer is the best way to go.

If you're not going to do some traveling outside of your state I'd stick with the vehicle certified OE tire size.
