Carlisle tires?

Anyone have any experiences good or bad with the Carlisle ST225 75 R15 , 117m E1 BSB sold by discount tires. I have heard a lot about Maxxis but not finding any dealers in my area. Discount tire does not carry them locally.

I am currently running that tire, however it was not from Discount Tire.
I ordered them while in Yellowstone, from a dealer in Livingston who installed them. I insisted on having them balanced also.
We are currently in Anchorage, Alaska, so it has had a baptism by fire. These roads are BRUTAL!
I am running the TST TPMS model 507. It pays for itself.
I had that tire in load range D for 30,000 plus miles and 3 years with no problems. One gave up at Livingston, Mt. a few weeks ago. It was my fault and I was aware of its soon demise. Several bands of tread had sunk slightly into the body and I inspected it at every stop. Fortunately it caused little damage at low speed.
I had made several REALLY tight turns while backing, causing the tires to flex awkwardly, and noticed that the tread appeared to be separating. A mistake I will try to never repeat!
Tires are a hot subject on this forum and opinions are diverse.
Good luck with your decision.
Travel safe

We were on the road to ALASKA May 6, home Sept. 13, 2016. 23 states, 3 Canadian Provinces, up to the Arctic Circle, 17,300 miles, 131 days on the road. 1 flat tire, 4 oil changes. What a beautiful trip!

Bought 4 of them in Flagstaff, AZ. last month, towed from there to Williams, AZ to Ely, NV. and then home without issues for 900 miles.

Road hazard, balanced, these replaced D rated tires from the factory.

Thus far I am good with the tires and the service I have received from DT.

How did your tpms react . was it quick enough to alert you that you had a flat or did some miles go by ?
i would suspect a lot of tires that get blamed on being china bombs were ruined at the dealer ship . having see the guys on the fork lifts move these units around and watched tires be pushed out of shape all the time . make + 90 degree turns with out rolling the unit at all
