Looking for E Rated tires advice

I am in need of a good street tread E Rated tire that will last. Current set is Michelin MS2 245/75/16, probably step up to a 265/75/16 (got better MPG with those ), I have 25,000 on the Michelins and they are leaving fast, was told 2nd half wears like iron ,we'll see......I haul a 5th wheel RV and looking for a solid tire? Any advice on brands & tires ? Thanks

The 1st half of my M/S2s did wear fast. The 2nd half they wore like iron then they wore way down. (Hope my new Defender M/S tires wear better all around)
Another popular tire is the Bridgestone Duravis R500 HD.

The r500s definitely last, 100k easily. Don't really like 265s on wet roads. Stay with 245/75/16s. Or go up to 17s and run 235/80/17.

Bridgestone Duravis R500.
Kind of a secert. Major tire chain can order them.
None stock them.

IMO they won't stock what will last.
