New here/ New tires?

Hi,
I've had my Borrego since September of 2011 and so far I absolutely love it! I recently got in a wreck and I have one new Hankook tire and the rest need replacing. The Hankooks have a pretty rough ride in my opinion (I know it is a truck, I've always driven a truck), and am looking for a smoother ride and the safest tire for driving. Any opinions? I make a lot of highway trips and want a safe tire for driving in the rain. I've read on here that Michelin LTX MS/2 tires are the way to go, but are there any other suggestions? Also, will the stock Hankook that is new from the repair fit under the car as a full size spare?

Thanks!
Shelby

Also, what did you end up getting and how do you like it?

I need new tires soon also and am thinking of getting the Toyo Versado CUV tires. They have really good reviews and are cheaper than the Michelin latitude touring tires, by a little bit. They also have a 500 mile warranty, so if you dont like them, you can return them. Both of these are the ones I an leaning toward.
