The first photo clearly shows "ST"

That checking and cracking was why my Carlisles are in the tire dump.

My tires had cracks between the treads that ran completely around the tire and could only be seen after they were removed and deflated. My first indication of the problem was a high speed blowout (most likely accelerated by a curb strike about a month prior that finished the cracking off).

Since the tires were almost 2 years old when I bought the new camper (2 year warranty on the tire), the tire warranty was based on when I purchased the camper (from FR). The blowout was after my one year FR warranty expired.

Carlisle offered to give me a voucher for a "discount" on new tires, but I would have to ship all four tires to them at my cost.

I now have 4 new (3 months old when purchased) Goodyear Marathons (made in Gadsden, Alabama) on the camper. LOVE THEM.

I just replaced my Carlisle's, as well. Since no one makes a 14" LT, I went to the 14" Kumho's. Picked them up on Memorial Day Weekend, on the way through Conneticut, so I saved the shipping costs by driving 10 miles out of the way. Unfortunately, that meant that I had to pay CT sales tax, but I still saved money....

Two are on, two to go (this weekend, I hope!), as I'm doing one side at a time, and rebuilding the poorly installed wheel well liners as I go. But that's documented in another thread....

BTW - My Carlisles were dated 3607 (TT delivered new in March '08), and the new Kumho's 3511.
