New Tire Suggestions?

I am looking into replacing the 205 75 14s on my 2008 grey wolf. Currently I have carlisle tires that came on the trailer and am hoping to find a higher quality radial tire. Any suggestions from you veteran rvers would be greatly appreciated!

I had kenda tires on my 2011 2902SS, I replaced all the tires including the spare with Good Year Marathon tires. So far so good.

Ditto on Marathons. If you ask them to get ones made in the USA they will order those from the warehouse for you. Gadsen Alabama is the US source factory for Goodyear Marathon ST tires.

Even though I currently have Chinese manufactured Marathons on my 2008 trailer, they are still running and looking great (except for the factory "buffed" spare....a whole nudder story). I will probably replace those in the next year or 2 with more Marathons>

I loved the Maxxis I put on our previous TT, and when it's time to put new tires on the new TT, I'll be buying another set of them.

My Goodyear Marathons have been over rocky National Forest Service Roads, endured days of 90 degree heat on the interstates, and have about 20,000 miles on them. Aside from some wear, absolutely no issues. I will replace them at the end of this year because they will be approaching 25,000 miles and will be 5 years old. I'd have no hesitation to buy Marathons again. (And mine are Chineese)
