so how good is goodyear endurance

Well after 2.5 years with my carlise hdtrails i pick up a nail . lucky it was noticed after i got to where i was going now sitting in front of my sons house . scheduled for monday for new tires . the Carlisle are 2.5 yrs old with about 12,000 miles on them was gong to make a Colorado to Florida back to Colorado this winter and replace in the spring . But now since i have a flat one i will just replace all 4 . discount tires has the good year endurance do you all think they are better then the carlise's are about the same ? all reviews show the carlise's rated pretty good . guess the endurance hasn't been out long enough for the reviewers or they over look it as the maxis and marthons show up but not the endurance . i would go with the carlise's again but the discount tires doesn't have them just some other off brands and the endurance at $131. a tire

Good enough to get you across the country and back on awful roads in all kinds of weather conditions with total peace of mind and without a blowout. Worth every penny IMO.

Thanks . the carilses served me well . I've read on here about the endurance but not many long term reviews . seems the thread depth is only 1/4" wonder how many miles they will get ? since i had about 12,000 on the carlise with plenty of tread left i just hope the endurance will get the same or more . the carlsie where only 2.5 yrs old dam road nails .

My tread still looks new after 8000 miles.

Ran the factory china tires (don't recall brand) on my 2012 unit until this spring when put on new Goodyear Endurance tires. The factory tires still had good tread but some signs of weatherchecking on the sidewalls.
BTW - the tires were about 2 years old when put on my unit at the factory.
As for the Goodyear Endurance, then tend to hug to road better, less sway and roll easier IMO.
I like them!

I just bought Endurance and noticed the same thing; not a lot of tread. My previous Carlisle tires had a LOT more tread.

Why change the tire out unless the nail broke the belt in the tire. If it did not break the belt, plug the nail hole and tow your trailer another 12,000 miles. Those Goodyear Marthons you spoke of are made in China.

My Endurance are 2+ years old with about 10k on them. They look to have just as much tread on them today as they did when I installed them.

So close to the wear indicators ? I still have about 7/32 left on the carlise's they've been wearing well and the tow seems solid . I can't get the carlise's and will be stuck with the endurance which sounds like it's not a bad thing .
Thanks for your response .

That's a positive sign . I do Florida to Montana 2 times a year with stops in Colorado to check on the house then off again so lots of miles .

I only use plugs to get to a tire shop . A patch from the inside would work . The nail is only a 1.5 from the sidewall But with 2.5 yr old tires and since it's sitting now flat on the rig don't want to risk any sidewall damage that may have occurred . did'nt go flat while driving but noticed it when i stopped. down to 50 psi and falling . So i would rather replace all four and not just one .hope the endurance is all that people say .

This is consistent with my experience. 1/32 wear/4K miles

I put the Goodyear Endurance on out trailer this year. Only a few trips on them but they ride nice. Much better then the Castle Rock ones that were on there.

Love em! I replaced my factory tires (some off brand that were weather cracking after 1 season) a couple years back before we took a trip from Michigan, along the east coast, to Florida and back. We have put well over 10k miles, perhaps closer to 15k on them. I just walked out to check the tread depth and I swear they are like new. The other thing that amazes me is that they never seem to need air. After at least three seasons with storage during long, cold, winters, they still are right at the same PSI I set them at. I have added maybe 3 lbs a tire since I have owned them. This summer, we went from Michigan to New Mexico, Grand Canyon, Bryce, Zion, then Colorado before coming back. We drove through all kinds of rain before spending 10 hour days on the road in 100+ degree heat. They performed amazingly. A few years back on our Florida trip, I was pushing it a bit fast in the rain and had to take evasive action when somebody cut me off, the trailer fishtailed for only a second before I got it back under control. They grip EXTREMELY well in the rain. I know since it seems to rain on every trip we take. Unfortunately, after all the miles we put on them, I picked up a nail on the 2 mile trip to dump my tanks at our storage place. I didn't hesitate to have the tire shop order another Endurance. I can't recommend these enough.

I had good service from Carlisle also but the gy endurance is the only USA made tire that I know of and has been getting great reviews. Best of luck.

BEFORE you purchase Endurance compare the same size tire OFF the rim... any tire Vs Endurance... you will convince yourself which is better when you see/feel the difference in the tire carcass...
