Good tires are an essential safety item. If you are in the USA go to an establ;ished reputable tire dealer and tell them the application. Here I use either Les Shwab or my local commercial vehicle tire dealer, as really we are driving a truck, not a car or van.

I would not use cheap foreign tires EVER as you do not want to experience a blow-out at speed, nor a sudden lack of grip because of poorly designed tread patters, materials or sidewalls.

I like Toyo, Michelin, the Les Shwab ow brand (Coopers) and similar.

As for paint job, it depends on the complexity. there are a lot of colours on mine, and its a skilled job as there's a great deal of sealing... several thousand is my bet. I have often considered getting a quote for 'wrapping'...

Lots of opinion on tires for motorhomes, personally, try to find a less expensive tire usually Asian, they all have to meet load carrying standards. The tread might not last as long as an expensive tire, but when was the last time anyone wore the tread off, mostly all coach tires expire from age.

Take exception for (Ed) Mwrench he does a lot of miles.

BTW Jeff you have the same paint job and colors as my 25 Ft Regal, the clear coat is peeling a few spots on it. Curious how much your paint job costs?/
