Carlisle tire question

I see that there are folks that really don't like Carlisle tires, but I have not seen anyone post their experience with the new design RADIAL TRAIL RH tire. Discount Tire says that currently the best ST tire out there. Based on this and the fact that I needed two tires while away from home, I now own 4 of them.

Don't want to start a brand war, just asking for folks experience with this new design tire, good or bad.
Thanks

My 2006 pop up came with them and I did not have any problems with them. I cannot comment on the new design. I guess time will tell.

Have only put 1k miles on my set so no issues yet. Only complaint is the large amount of weights needed to balance them out. Way too much.

That alone would tell me something.

Very telling. But I already own them so I will ride them out until unhappy with them.

I ran Carlisle's on my TH for a year. Had no issues and seem to tow better. They were 10 ply tires. I pulled about 7,000 miles with them.

From my readings about tires recently on various forums, the new design is getting pretty good reports.

Several years ago, they along with Goodyear had some quality issues from their ST tires coming from China. They cleaned up their act and paid claim to those that had China bomb explosions. The model you referenced is a newer model. They are what I replaced two Akuret tire blowouts with while traveling in Florida. I later replaced the remaining two with Maxxis, which was and still is my first choice in ST tires. Most Discount Tires store locations don’t stock, but can order Maxxis. All of their locations stock Carlisle’s…
