Thumbs up Tires

Carlisle X2
Replaced tire's on 2015 FS 831FKBSS last summer and they have been great.
Tows so much better and no sidewall cracking at all. They also hold air better than Factory tire's did.
FR was good in assisting with replacements. We love our FS TT.
OVER 180 nights camped so far and no end in sight.
8500 miles last year and 5800 so far this year.

If you can afford these they are the best you can put on your RV and they will not go flat while in storage.

Goodyear Unisteel G614 RST
ST235/85R16 G/

Size LT235/85R16
Capacity 3,750 LBS @ 110 PSI
Ply Rating 14
Service Description 126/123 L
Diameter 30.7"
Width 9.5"
Tread Depth 12/32

A number of us on here who have had problems, have gone with these to take the worry about tires out of our trips. If you shop around or look on Amazon you can find them much cheaper than list price.

It's possible there was some confusion as to terminology here. The tire should have a warranty, but is not eligible for road hazard coverage..... which road hazard is usually more akin to an insurance policy than a warranty item........ but people confuse the two.

Usually trailer service tires are not eligible for road hazard replacement/coverage....but it's up to the company offering the road hazard coverage since this is usually something separate and offered thru the selling dealer and not the tire manufacturer (although some manufacturers do offer a very limited time/mileage road hazard on some products).

I always recommend that people make themselves aware of what a road hazard policy covers and excludes, since it is basically like vehicle insurance...and each company/policy can be way different.

Here is a link to tire rack's, which I used as an example since theirs is easy to find.

P.S. Trailer use tires usually never have a mileage warranty either.

I'll begin pricing at a couple places Tuesday for Carlisle.

LRC was 50 lbs. maxxis is 80 I think. I sure feel more comfortable with the new tires. I think you'll be glad you made the change

I replaced my tires after a major blowout on my V-lite with Hercules. Went from C rated to E rated. Same size tire as yours and bought some on Ebay for $95. and are made in U.S. N ow I feel safe on the road.

The Maxxis is a good tire. However we travel a lot and I was concerned about available dealer support if I needed it. So I went with Goodyear Marathon. I also upgraded from a C rating to D. I did this two years ago and I'm very satisfied - so far.

Went with the Maxxis 8008's and added TST 507 tire pressure monitors. Only got a few hundred miles on the tires but good so far.
