There is crap-loads of evidence that says the opposite... with regard to ST tires.

You must not read much. Every other day a thread pops up where another ST failed and caused damage to the trailer.

Many of us have swapped to LT tires and never looked back.

ST tires are crap. Period. Until they start to be manufactured to the same standards as P and LT tires that is.

We had one of the New 15" Maxxis 8008 load range E 80 PSI tires fail while in California,tire dealer said Week for replacement! He said He uses Carlisle Tires,I looked at them and they are 15" load range E ST Tires,and The HUGE BIG Print on the Sidewall says "80 PSI and 81 MPH"! We are now in Kansas and no Ill effects! Will evaluate when returning home! Youroo!!

Dangit... I am just gonna stop reading about tires. Now the Maxxis tires are crap too? I can't use LT tires without changing rims... I don't want to spend that much...plus it would change other stuff.

I guess best you can and ADD TPMS.

You didn't mention how it happened? JB. told me. I'm from California, 25 years, there isn't a decent road in that State. Where you on I-5? You will go back to Maxxis as soon as you get back to OHIO. Y
our last Maxxis lasted 5 years, then you gave them to a landscaper free, because they were in such good shape. Tell the whole story Youroo, what you did to blow the tires. MAXXIS 8008 ST. Best tire on the Market. How did you get a E
Rated tire on a max 65 psi rim? Good camp fire story coming, I can feel it in my bones already.

Get Maxxis my friend, you will not be sorry or ever look back. 8008 St load range " d " 65 max psi, tires drive me nuts also, use to be a Marathon Man, last set less then 4000 miles two broken belts verified by GY. Both tires ballooned on me and one the belt was showing from the chunk it took out of the thread. Happened at the Mayberry Rally, changed all four to Maxxis 8008 ST 65psi load range D, they wanted to put E Rated on at 80 psi, I said no the rim was stamped 65 max psi.
