New set of Goodyear Endurance tires

Just trashed my "China Bomb" Castle Rock OEM tires and put on a set of Goodyear Endurance ST205/75 R14 D's. We will be leaving next week for a trip and I expect to notice a difference (besides the peace of mind I am already experiencing).
Anyone else go from Castle Rocks to Goodyear and what difference did you notice?

Castle Rock to Goodyear Endurance for us too.

I was surprised that I could tell a difference within a couple miles...The trailer had less up and down motion as well as less side to side motion.

Last month we put 2800 miles on the Goodyear's. I couldn't be happier about the switch.

In October of 2017, I replaced the Castle Rocks with Goodyear Endurance 14's. Just the return trip home from the installation facility and running empty was an eye opener! Had them balanced of course (just me), the tt towed straight and never swerved back & forth on a 2 lane blacktop road. Just a few weeks later, I loaded the tt with the trike and much more, left VT and headed home to TX, over 2000 miles thru the mountains! Total peace of mind even with semi's passing head on or along side! Absolutely love them to say the least.

i agree with BigH, my trailer is more stable and tracks alot better with the endurance tires.

Just got back from a trip to western Maryland, hauling the Gold Wing, with the new Goodyear Endurance tires. TT pulls straight and true, much less sway and definitely more stable going down the road. Real smooth at 70MPH! Glad I made the switch.....takes a load off of my mind!

Hi,

Just finishing up a trip from northern Illinois to Austin, TX in several weeks of ferocious heat -- coming and going. My trip to Quartzsite in early January involved starting out at home at ten below zero, so I have seen them perform at both ends of the temperature spectrum.

This trip gets me close to 7,500 miles on the Endurances I put on my Silverback a year ago.

So far, perfect performance. No air loss, and while it is largely subjective, they seem to be a more solid tire in day to day towing.

FWIW.

Hi Stu,

I think I'm not the Rich you think I am, since I didn't serve in the military.

But yes, a huge thanks to all who did!!

Rich

Just finished a 7000 + - a few miles on my 4 1/2 year old Maxxis 8008 225/75/R15 E tires. Had my only problem with the tires 300 miles from home. Belt separation I am told and the tire finally started coming apart. My tst 507 alerted me as soon as the tire started to lose pressure. By the time I got stopped the tire had gone from 80 psi to 30 psi. Put the spare on and made the 300 miles to home. I now have a new set of Goodyear Endurance E rated tires on our 5th wheel. The Maxxis tires served well for roughly 35K+ miles, I have no complaints. I went with the endurance because they have a short but good record but mostly because they are USA made.

We have a couple of thousand miles on our Endurance tires. Can really tell the difference.
