Goodyear launches American-made 'Endurance' trailer tire

Goodyear launches American-made 'Endurance' trailer tire | Blog: Great Lakes Camper | voicenews.com

For years, hobbyists who tow boats, jet skis and snowmobiles to recreational destinations have asked for an American-manufactured trailer tire to help carry their cargo with confidence. Millions of workers who haul equipment from job to job have echoed that desire.

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has answered that call with the new Endurance trailer tire, which was unveiled this week during Goodyear’s 2017 Customer Conference in Orlando, Fla.

“Goodyear is proud and excited to introduce the Endurance, the only radial special trailer tire built in the United States,” said Ryan Patterson, president of Goodyear’s North American consumer tire business.

A tire capable of transporting the heaviest and most crucial cargo, The Goodyear Endurance features Goodyear Durawall Technology, which helps resist sidewall cuts and punctures.

Available in Load Ranges D and E to accommodate larger trailer load capacities, the entire Endurance trailer line carries the N speed rating allowing consumers to travel at highway speeds. The Endurance also contains a wide range of features, including:
An optimized tread depth and decoupling groove, which help it remain cool while towing heavy loads;
Rugged fabric-steel construction, which offers improved durability and carrying capacity while remaining compatible with tire pressure monitoring systems and typical tire inflation stations;
A specialized inner liner, which minimizes air loss in trailer applications; and
A scuff guard, which helps protect sidewalls.

In addition to introducing the new Endurance, Goodyear has unveiled a brand new, special trailer size: ST 255/85R16. The Endurance is the only tire on the market available in that size.

“The launch of the Goodyear Endurance is an exciting development for consumers who want a durable, domestically manufactured tire that they can trust to carry their important cargo,” said Patterson. “Goodyear is proud to meet this need with the new Endurance.”

Goodyear is one of the world’s largest tire companies. It employs about 66,000 people and manufactures its products in 48 facilities in 21 countries around the world. Its two Innovation Centers in Akron, Ohio, and Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg, strive to develop state-of-the-art products and services that set the technology and performance standard for the industry.

Time will tell if the new line is any good but at least Goodyear is not making these in China. A step in the right direction.

I just purchased LT tires, but in 6 or 7 years, there should be plenty of info on these new Goodyear tires. My Bridgestone LT tires were about the same cost through Costco. Over 4000 LBS. at 80 PSI, something doesn't seem right.

Westlake and G614 should not be mentioned on the same page, let alone in one sentence; its apple to oranges, cats to dogs

Goodyear has made some really good tires over the years...and they've also put out a lot of junk stuff. It will probably be a few years before we know how this new tire is going to perform. I don't intend to be a beta tester.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Took me all night to figure out the obvious, and then it had to be pointed out to me.

80 psi, Load Range E.

Deal killer. Need G or above load rating.

These should work for a lot of TT's though.

The Goodyear tire is a 255/85R/16. Most trailer sizes are a 235. Also note the weight of the tire, for an "E" rated tire, 51lbs. This tire has a load carrying limit of 4,080lbs, the Goodyear G614 even though "G" rated has a max load of 3,750lbs.

You have to pay for quality. There are Chinese tires for a price.

The Tire Rack has the Endurance 225/75/R15 LR E for $121. The equivalent Marathon is listed at $88.

Look at it this way. Truck = $45 to $60K. Trailer = $25 to $60K. Should we be worrying about an extra $120 for a set of four?

OP, thanks for bringing this new tire to everyone's attention.

That's a very true statement. In today's world, I would doubt that they would dare to put out a bad tire. But, who knows.

Then what is the point of the Load Rating letter?

Also, these are 10 ply tires..........not 14 ply like G614.

I have G614s on my toy hauler. I have been extremely pleased with them. But if these new Endurance tires do well, I'd have no problem going with a set on future campers. I like the weight rating.

Does anyone know the speed rating? I do like the peace of mind if I'm doing over 65 mph on the interstates and not worrying about surpassing what the tires are rated for.

IMO country of origin does not equal quality, but I for one think that USA means something... at least we have inspection/quality controls in material certification here in the states...Especially where the DOT is involved. We have been begging and here it is. You 16" boys have options...us 15" boy/girls have been SOL unless you put LT tires on it.... and then??
