I am really hesitant to try and name a tire brand for anyone to use. Since there is no such thing as a fail proof tire, I think that as soon as I named brand XYZ, someone would have a failure and it would be my fault.
What I can offer are some suggestions when making tire selection.
1. I have a post in my blog "Best Tire
" I suggest you read that and its companion "Best Trailer Tire
2. When looking at tire brands you may want to ask yourself if the company that made the tires has enough confidence in them to:
A. Place their name on the tire sidewall
B. To offer a meaningful warranty (i.e. more than a few weeks or months)
C. How do you find a local store or dealer that sells the tire brand you are considering? Is there a dealer network or are the outlets just folks that sell whatever brand they happen to get a deal on?
D. Who is standing behind the warranty is a most important question.
3. You need to understand that there are a good number of tires made with what appears to me to be one objective i.e. Low Cost. Now for some products that might be OK and you make the judgment to trade off good performance and durability for low initial cost.
Lets look at an example: Suppose we work doing home repairs and were in the market for an electric drill to have in our RV. Now we have a name brand HD drill we use on the job when the drill has to work every time or we would loose time and money on the job and it gets lots of use but in the RV you might only drill a couple holes each year.
Would you buy another name brand drill for $70 or might you feel the on no-name brand drill that is on sale for $9 is good enough for your planned use. After all what are the negative consequences if the $9 drill fails?
Rather than making the decision just on price how about ensuring your tires can work reliably for the job you want them to do which is carry the load safely down the road at 65 mph for 3 to 5 years.
You need to ensure you have a reasonable reserve load
. (Load capacity - Measured tire load).
I cover weight and minimum inflation in my blog and without knowing the actual numbers we can do nothing better than guess.
I have a new post scheduled for the 19th on "How to Maximize tire life with minimum effort" that covers the basic and minimum steps needed to make an informed decision.
I know not what you were hoping for but it's really the best I can do without someone misinterpreting the answer.
