Default Ironman Tires? For medium duty?

Looking to buy a motorhome soon. Found one I'm interested in at a dealer, and pointed out to them that the current set of tires is almost ten years old (based on DOT code). They offered to throw in a new set of Ironman all-position tires as part of the deal. At this point I said to myself "What the heck is an Ironman tire? Some just-arrived-from-China baloney?"

I did some research and there'* not a lot out there. Seems like they are produced by Hercules Tire and started production around 2014. When I learned this I said to myself "What the heck is an Hercules tire? Some off-brand Pep Boys baloney?" I've at least seen a few Hercules tires around, but don't know much about them.

Ironman may have had some teething issues for a year or two, but I can't seem to find much in the form of reviews or testimonials on forums or anything like that. It'* weird. From what little I can find there are a few

The size I'm looking at is 245/70R19.5 preferably load-range H for a Class A . I found several reviews of Hercules tires on cars and light trucks (F150'* primarily), none for medium duty, and a few testimonials on other forums when they've been used on semis.

Before anyone asks: Class A because I can find decent ones for about half the price of decent Class C'* at about the same length, and if there is a fuel economy penalty it will take years to make up for the difference in purchase price.

Has anyone here had any experience with Ironman tires in the medium and/or heavy-duty world?
