My 5er came with Trailer King 235/80/R16 LR E tires. After 5500 problem free miles I was ready for a set of Maxxis. Research lead me to the Carlisle TH and bought 5. Only 1200 miles so far but very pleased. Tire dealer had Carlisle available in 24 hours and 72 for Maxxis ~~ the wait was irrelevant.

Do you really think they will be better, tires made by the same companies in a different location is really going to fix everything.

What Do You Do When The Wheels Fall Off?

Had a bad experience with underrated tyres.

Checkout my post "What Do You Do When The Wheels Fall Off?" in the On The Road thread.

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.
why the RV manufacturers don't use LT tires. And why hasn't everyone changed over to them? Seems like a no brainer automatic. What gives?

You're wrong. I purchased a Cardinal that had, as it turned out, Chinese tires. Somehow there was a problem with ensuring the belts were properly laminated and three of them, no THREE of them blew out on one trip. $2500 damage.

First the Chinese manufactured children's toys with lead paint. Then they built exploding tires. Then they poisoned our pets by putting filler chemical in the pet food. Then they made poisonous drywall. You get my point.....

For every ST tire that has failed prematurely millions have held up for their service life just fine. If ST tires were that bad the highways would be littered with TTs on the side of the road with blowouts and I'm out there daily and just don't see it. If changing to LT tires gives you peace of mind then more power to you, but it doesn't make those who think differently uninformed.

ST or LT

You must remember that it always depends on the load, the pressure (both starting & what it gets to after running for a while) and the speed. The ratings are one thing but what you are doing to them on the road has significance.
