Tires

Anyone have any experience with Greenball brand trailer tires? Seem like they have pretty good reviews on Costco.com.

I see posted price of $129... for that amount of money I would look at the American made Goodyear Endurance trailer tires. Many on here have replace stock tires with the GY Endurance brand when they first came out about 3 years ago. Many have also jumped up a load range from C to D or D to E. When you have them mounted make sure to ask for metal valve stems to replace the stock rubber ones.

Many tire threads on here if you search and most will say switch to GY or Maxxi tires.

Don't skimp on tires when you are on vacation.

An look at a TPMS system for trailer tires. TST makes a good one.

Thanks, just looking to see if anyone has experience with these. I was looking at tires today at Costco. These are the only trailer tires they sell. For a 205/75R14 loaf range D it is about a $250 total difference between these and Goodyear Endurance.

I moved up to Greenball Towmaster LR D tires from the junk Carslisle LR C tires that came on my GEO PRO 17 single axle trailer. I love the new tires! I was getting to ready to leave for a weekend and one tire was flat. Took it to Les Schwab and they said it was a pinhole leak in the sidewall of the Carslisle. They replaced it with their own LR C tire so at least I could be on my way.

I replaced the in service tires with Greenball LR D from Costco and my feeling is they are just plain solid tires! I only did get them this year, but I am sold on them so far. Hopefully, if anything does happen, the junk Carslisle spare will at least get me to the closest tire shop.

I find Costco to have very good prices but they are rigid in their policies... still suggest you spend the extra money to get the added piece of mind of the American made Endurance tires with metal valve stems. Your best price may be at goodyear dot com.

Hmm. I just had mine delivered to my front door and while I had the wheels off for bearing and brake inspection, took the wheel and new tires to a local tire shop down the road.

I ended up ordering some MAXXIS tires off the discount tire direct website. I was able to get these for around $120 more than the Greenballs. I have read good things about MAXXIS tires.

I read these posts about people ordering tires from various online (apparently) sales sights, having them delivered, and having them mounted at some local tire shop. That's not available here. I have not found any of our locally owned, nor franchised stores that would mount tires bought elsewhere. At one time I had a Wal-Mart tire on my utility trailer blow out away from home. When I took it to a Wally World close to where the tire blew out they would not honor the warranty on the three (3) month old tire because I did not buy the tire at that store. Go figure

We have had very good luck with our Carlisle Trail HD tires. Over 15,000 great miles to date.
You may have just had a bad tire or gotten poked somewhere.

You wonít be disappointed with the Maxxis tires. Good quality. I had a set for 3 years and over 20,000 miles. I bought GYE when I changes mainly because I think they will be easier to find GYE if on the road.

A few years ago, before GYE came out Maxxis was one of the go to tires. I donít think folks stopped buying them due to quality but wanted to buy USA.

One of my GYE tires developed a side wall bubble not 3 months after I installed them. Maybe I hit a curb or something, donít know but I got it replaced. Since then 7000 mile trip out west and 1000 miles more and no issues.

Maxxis are antiquated with a 65 MPH speed limit.

Always check manufacturer date code on the tire sidewalls, especially with Maxxis.

Another update, went on the discount website today and the Endurance were $50 off a set of 4. Talked to an agent and canceled the Maxxis order. Placed a new order for the Endurance tires. So I will now have Endurance tires. As someone previously stated, I was a little worried about Maxxis availability if I needed one ASAP! Everything happens for a reason.......

You will be happy with the GYE and that is the main reason I went with them is availability when out on the road. Still believe Maxxis makes a good tire...
