Tires for my Uhaul

After a recent blowout I need new tires. Lucky that nothing bad happened and I was able to pull off the interstate easily. Going about 63mph and only felt about a 2 inch pull on the steering wheel.
But, now I want new rubber on the road. I have seen two sizes mentioned 185 and 175. What is best? Also, what is the consensus on Green Ball Tow-Master tires from Firestone?
All help greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Patti

I bought Greenball tires from Costco. I've only had them less than a year, but I like dealing with Costco.

Mine has 175s on it on the original rims. I just had a new one put on the spare rim as the other was dry rotted. I just picked a one up at a locally-owned shop. Curious to hear what others think about specific brands.

You'll get a wide degree of opinions on many brands. I really like my Maxxis 8008's. Couldn't find bad reviews when I researched, and my experience has been great.

The garage I got my UHaul from replaced the old tires with Goodyear 185/70R13. Bigger than the originals, but they fit and give a bit more ground clearance. Not sure if they're the best, but they have withstood a lot of off-roading with no problems.

Thanks everyone for your input. I had 2 new 185/80R13 Transmaster/Greenball tires put on today at Firestone and should be good to go.
