Ok, been looking, researching, this crazy tire problem that people are just now realizing is going to hurt their bottom line (a 20k mile OEM Expensive tire). I've looked at new wheels with higher load tires, dealer options for OEM tires (just the original one JKTyre where I am), and the only other C rated tire - Continental vanco 4 seasons. Well to replace the rims to 16s ($400) and use a tire that comes close to pressure you're looking at about $900 out the door. The OEM tires and continentals cost right about $625. NOT good if you put a lot of miles on your van.
Well I found out that Yokohama sells a 185/60/15 s series tire (avid) that has a max pressure of 51lbs. These run under $400 and have a 60k mile tread rating. Looks good to me! I dont carry a heavy load in my van, just light delivery items. Hope this helps someone.

I read around and 205/65/15 seems to be a size that works with these vans. Nokian Entyre off Ebay are $286 for a set(for that size). My dad has them(diff size) on his car and so far its a good tire. Quiet and they claim to handle snow well. Best part is = 70k tread wear warranty. Wear rating is like 700AA. You should get plenty of life out of these, but even if you don't roughly $400 OTD still beats the OE tires.
Nokian is known to make some of the best snow tires. They also make an all weather tire. They are NOT a no name brand.
If I can't get my hands on Nokians I'm gonna try out Milestar MS932 or ohtsu FP7000. Roads around here are too rough to use expensive tires.
