2x7,000lbs axles w/Carlisle ST235/85R16

We have a 2013 Sanibel 3600 5th. The GY Marathon ST235/80R16 were at 100*f after 75mi pull on a 50*f day. The GY Marathons derate the 7,000lbs axles to 6,840lbs. each, as stated on the axle weight card on the coach. Has any one changed to the Carlisle ST235/85R16 E load rated tire, rated at 3640lbs @ 80psi? Looking to replace the GY tires.
Tire shop wants to use the balancing beads in the new tires. Any one out there have long time towing with the beads?

I ran that same tire on my last toy hauler and never had a problem with them . My new toy hauler runs that size but in a green ball tire . I am planing to go to the Carlisle after I get about a year out of transmasters.
I use the beads on my jeep tires and it works on them 315x75x16

Green ball are actually very good tires. They are rated at full load at 75 mph.

I will be upgrading to them in the next few months.

The Carlisle tire warranty will not allow balancing materials. I would have them verify the use of the beads before inserting them. Here is the reference.

As I read the above link, I understand section 6, subsection f, to be liquid balancer and/or sealers will void the warranty. The beads are solid. But, I see the list excludes the tires from warranty once they are mounted on my rims.
After reading the link, I don't think the tires come with a warranty.
