I heard tru there posts that the Maxxis is not always built in the US---I have called and talked to Carlisle and it is built in the US and the rating for a ---15--- rim is superior then most, and being Canadian can get it 40 miles form my place

Unless you travel the Austin Texas east side toll way where the limit is 85mph.
Link to a screen capture of the speed rating.

They seem to have tweaked their website. If you look at their FAQ you can see their speed rating definition and then when you browse Discount Tire website you can see the speed ratings of a given tire.

Thanks for pointing me to those Carlisle links. I see that their "L" is rated 75mph and "N" is 87mph. I also see later in the FAQ where they recommend only 60mph when towing. No matter, they are good tires and its my comfort with the trailer size, weight, road and climate conditions that keep me between 60 and 65. For this old guy, 70mph is usually white knuckle driving ;-)

I'm sure the 60 mph recommendation is a CYA. They actually speed test the tires at the higher MPH and rate them at those speeds which other manufacturers don't seem to do.

I don't necessarily want to go 87 either. I just hate to think that the tire manufacturer has only tested them to 65, or even worse they designed them to 65 and anything faster is going to lead me down the path of blown tire. There are times I feel safer at 70 because of the speed of traffic around me.
