I have the Maxxis tires. They have been very good, though admittedly, I don't have the 5th wheel out quite as much as before. Still, they are good tires. I had Carlisle on my old TT and never had an issue with them either.

My Cedar Creek has 215-75/17.5 tires. I can't seem to find any reference to a 17.5" tire. Biggest I see in the Endurance is 16".

I think what you have are load range G or H, Endurance only goes to F; There are other Goodyear tires on their website under trailer tires

Went from F rated original to G rated Sailun. So far so good after one year and 5000 miles.

I would allow Carlisle on that list as well. Those ran forever on our old coach with no problems akin to the bad Chinese made "China Bombs".

Big deal for me is to upgrade to Max load range tore you can get. If the plackard on the coach says 50psi cold inflation,. That's a C range tire. I would never have that on a trailer. 65psi is D load range better but not enough. 80 psi cold. Is load range E tires. I run those if they are available in your wheel size. Mine have always been 15 inch and I upgrade everything, TT TH utility trailer or boat trailer to LR . E tires for piece of mind. On lighter trailers I might run less than 80 psi, but I always want those heavyweight guys on the ground.

If you are blessed to have 16 inch rims I think you can go above E but I always upgrade the Load capacity.

On this rig I had myself convinced that with proper tire care and pressure management my load range d China bombs would last a long time. I was wrong. Which brings me to topic number to r tire pressure monitoring system saved us. With a 8-9000 lb travel trailer I won't leave home without it.

Upgraded mine from load range c to load range e keeping the same size tire. Went with Goodyear Endurance and love them after two years (going on three). They look great and run great. Because the TT was built for load range c I only inflate the tires to 60 lbs. Dealer said I should do this for wear.

"Best" ST (Special Trailer) tire brand is debated here every week.
Lots of prior threads. Remember... the OP has a travel trailer.

These always come up on the list of recommended. (in no particular order)
Goodyear Endurance, Maxxis 8008, Carlisle HD.

Whichever brand of tire you select Id recommend going with a higher rated tire than the factory put on. Mine came with E rated tires.

I just needed new tires and went with G rated. Rated for greater weight carrying capacity and a higher speed rating as well.
