I'm on my second set. First ones went on in 09. Replaced those in 2014, 5yrs and 11k miles. Replaced due to age and one tire that shifted a belt. The replacements (2014) have been good.

I believe all the Carlisle failures that were posted years ago were of the "C" rated variety. Never once in my research did I see a complaint or failure of a "D" or "E" rated tire.

We have a Sanibel 3600. I had the Goodyear E load rated tires replaced with the new ST 235/85R16F from Carlisle This tire has a load rating of 3960 lbs. @ 95psi. I had the tires balanced to reduce side wall flexing at highway speed. The Carlisle F load rated tire is less money than the G load rated tires and still provides a 12% extra load capacity above the Sanibel's 7,000 lbs axle weight rating. If I keep my weight under 6,300 lbs. per axle, I'll have a minimum 10% safety margin for the axle and 20% safety margin for the tires.
The factory installed Goodyear E load rated tires decreased the axle rating per the tag on the trailer.
I have had no problems and the tires have not exceeded 100 deg. f. when towing.

My Sanibel 3600 had a blowout on the Good Year st 235/80R16. I'm buying 4 new 235/80R16/10 Maxxis today. How have your Maxxis doing?

Just got back from our first trip with our Ultra V 2715VS and it's new Carlisle tires. Our total milage was only 89 miles round trip, so I can't give a fair assessment, other than the trailer pulled well with no bad manners. I was going to check the tire temps with my thermo gun, but got side-tracked and didn't do it. Temps here in Texas are around 100 degrees, so we were trying to unload as quick as possible. Anyway, so far, so good. Later, y'all.

We've had Carlisle 10 Ply Rating tires on our Columbus 5th wheel for 2 1/2 years now and with the exception of picking up a nail just as we were parking one time we have had ZERO problems. And, during that time we've covered over 15,000 miles.

Before I ever head out I check the pressure and make certain they are properly inflated and never have a second thought. I love ours and will be buying the same thing once I need new tires.

I have them on my TT and have had no problems for over two years and LOTS of miles.
Also a set on a 2 wheel utility trailer that I load to the max often. The utility trailer has been to D.C. twice and FL once, loaded heavily, still look like new. All were balanced from the start and checked at about 1 year. I am religious about checking air pressure each time before the trailer moves. Both sets load range D. Will buy again.
