Carlisle radial trail HD, E RATING

Ok before the castle rock, bombs, that came on the travel trailer blew, I replaced them with carsile radial trail hd, e rated ones today.

Lots of debate on best choice of tire, went with these on tire shoo recommendation. Was a last minute choice as got her inspected today. Was planning to do them next season that would have been fourth season for them. However cracks within treads were visible.

That said how many cover there tires durning the season. I have only done mine during winter storage?Click image for larger version

I've heard nothing but good things about the carlistle tires. I will cover my tires if I am sitting for more than a week or so between the trips.

My wife and I just got in last night from 2200 mile trip to Bar Harbor, Maine. I just had Carlisles put on my camper. They held up great. Most know, the roads up North aren't the best, those tires took a beating.

If I am parked more then just overnight, tire covers go on. In 6 years, going on second set of covers. I would say saving the tires from all that UV!

I just ordered 4 of them for my 30 ft enclosed car hauler, nice tire for a not big price, got them a wallyworld for $67.50 ea.

If they work out good, I may put them on my 5th wheel.

We put 4 of that tire on last spring. Put about 5000 miles on them last year. They seem to be holding up well. I do not cover my tires. Thinking I may start.

I use white covers on mine. Seem to do a good job of reflecting the heat away. Funny how hot open tires get.

Trailer tires seem to have stuff in the rubber that helps protect them from UV damage which makes the covers seem to be less necessary these days.

Also, after 6-7 years a tire will have aged-out and really should be replaced even if there's plenty of tread left and there are no visible external cracks as dry-rot on the inside isn't visible.

Just my $0.02.

Not looking at a friends tires that were as old as mine. He covers his new tires now. He did not believe till he saw with his own eyes.
