Don't want to start a brand war, just asking for folks experience with this new design tire, good or bad.
Thanks
I'm with you--I see people that don't like Carlisles, but they are all older posts. Whatever the case, my LTS could only get me the RH tires, compared to some of the cheaper tires he had in stock. We haven't been out in our trailer yet, Ultra V 2715s, but I'm heeding the warnings to not waste time in getting better tires. Roll the dice and take your chances. We'll see how they do.

[QUOTE=HONDAMAN174;802195]Very telling. But I already own them so I will ride them out until unhappy with them.

Replaced my CBs last year with a set of LR E Carlisles.

No problems so far!

I hope that the tires are going to be ok. If people were having problems, I believe they would still be expressing their opinion.

I think you're probably right, Scott. Since the RH tire is relatively new, with newer technology, maybe they will be a better tire than even 3 to 4 years ago. It seems the ones that are giving trouble are the older models of tires. Anyway, I'll soon find out. Mine are getting put on tomorrow. The OEM tire are a Constancy ly188, which I have never heard of. They are even advertised as a cheap tire. I talked to a guy who had just purchased a new Windjammer, and the first thing he did was put on new tires, and advised me to do the same. Thanks, Scott.

I'm not a TT guy but do pull a utility trailer with my Sunseeker and am looking to replace tires on a single-axle motorcycle trailer. Apparently the only US-made trailer tires are from Carlisle now, albeit their bias-ply USA Trail.

I still don't have enough miles on my set to help with an evaluation. I'll be interested in the responses that you get.

That alone would tell me something.
Tells me......lazy installer. Why not break'em back down and rotate on wheel and re-balance to see if indeed a problem tire or wheel.

I suspect that would be those cheap steel wheels. Inconsistent welds and center is usually out of alignment with the rim.

I have the new RH LRE tires, installed last year in April. They are China made, but definitely a quality tire with the thousands of miles and over 60 nights camped. I'm completely satisfied.
