OUCH! I've got OEM Carlisles on my '03 FR Flagstaff 25LB. (Oh, one new one from blow out 2 years ago. Guess I better save up. Seems there ought to be a safety recall on them like Firestone did few years back! I'm going with GY Marathons.

speaking of tires..............I'm standing there looking at the tires saturday and thinking to myself. "Self" these suckers are too underinflated. So I read the tire data.....ST 205 75R 15 Load Range C....max psi 50 lbs. Ok, I know what all that means.....so I am still thinking to myself......"self" Why are they so dang compressed? No wonder I have so dang much drag when I slow down.....So today I am searching the internet and checking to see who manufactures a D range or possibly even an e range tire in that size.......bzzzzzt wrong answer. So, does anyone know of a D range tire? Has anyone had issues with their C range tires? Has anyone made any significant tire improvements, i.e. rims size? Am I just overly concerned, need to chill out, and have a beer?

Carlisle has a D that no dealer (around me) stocks and I will be going with the goodyears or kellys for replacement. Still a c rating.

Being that you unit is new I would not panic just check them often. I have read somewhere that carlisle has fixed the problem and only the 03-05 dates have the biggest potential to come apart.

not panicking, I am sure someone knows a lot more about what should be on there than me....I was looking to see if perhaps there were options available than what I have been able to find. My simple mind tells me if I have a "harder" tire, it rolls smoother than one which appears to be squishy, hopefully pulling easier and saving gas. I dunno, just checking out the potential improvements. I would probably go with GY as well.
