any experience with taskmaster radial flyer trailer tires?

While shopping for a blowout last week, a tire dealer in Colorado recommended these tires:
Ratings, reviews and specifications for Taskmaster Provider ST Radial Trailer Tire tires

The big selling point is they carry a N speed rating is 85 mph.

Anyone have any experience with this brand?

The tires that came with my 2011 Sabre are Provider, made in China. Cannot find Taskmaster on them anywhere. They are load range D and so far we have about 16,000 miles on them. They have been flawless so far.

I've heard of them, but never sold any. I am curious about this N speed rating. As I looked at Discounts website, they showed a speed/load rating for their trailer tires, which I have never seen on any trailer tires before, as this is something seen on passenger/light truck tires.

I am wondering it this was something put in by a data programmer/web guru...or if the tires really do carry a N speed rating?

If you do find out anymore on these tires, i would be interested to know.

The speed ratings are becoming a little more prominent from my research. I started using Greenball Tow Master on my boat years ago because they have a speed rating of 75 printed on them (which was more than anyone else I could find at the time.) Now Maxxis puts a Q which is 99mph on the M8008.

IMHO the higher the speed rating, the better the construction, and more able they are to deal with heat.

I agree. Now you've got me really interested, especially with the Maxxis comment. Is there a way to verify the Q speed rating. All I can find on the Maxxis website still places their tires at 65 mph, which may be because they haven't updated it.

http://www.maxxis.com/Repository/Files/m8008load.pdf

Although I don't sell Maxxis (usually because of the price), I would consider them, if they can run 99mph....as this would be an easy selling point.

this site lists the load rating and speed rating for each size:
M8008 RADIAL TRAILER - OnlineTires.com

Maybe someone with Maxxis could take a sidewall picture?

Greenball lists their speed rating on their website (speed rating L)

Greenball Tires - Towmaster

and this sounds really interesting:

I took your advice and put a dealer inquiry into Maxxis, asking about the speed rating discrepancy between their spec sheets and an online dealer site. If/when they respond, I'll let everyone know.

Just put 4 maxxis on trailer this morning. Load range E. Don't see any speed ratings on sidewall , unless it's in code. Build dates are 10th week of 2013.
