I have purchased Kumho 857 for my 14" rims also. I have not pulled any where yet but spring break is coming. One Carsile had lost its shape.

The main think for me was the speed rating. I can tow easier and get better mpg if I can tow at 65. With Carsile, the speed rating was only 60. And the trailer just did not handle right going over 60.

Yes, I agree that the speed rating is an advantage. Not that I'm going to tow over 65 mph but sometimes on those big downhills "out West" the momentum can carry you above 65. Then I don't have to worry about it other than the obvious safety considerations. Plus you are getting an even larger "cushion" on load capacity.
