Too stiff of a side wall?

I am purchasing new tires for a Rockwood 8285WS 5th wheel. Originally came with Load Range C tires which I upgraded to Good Year Marathon Load Range D approximately 5 years ago. These are no longer available.
Discount Tire has Good Year Endurance tires, Load Range E. Or Maxxi Tires Load Range D tires.
The Endurance tires have not been on the market long enough to really prove themselves.
My question is will the Load Range E tire be too heavy or stiff a tire for my RV,
Or would you recommend I go with the proven Maxxi tire?
All input would be appreciated.

Put Goodyear Endurance on our 8289WS last spring. Put roughly 6k on them since then without any issues. Utilize the load/inflation charts for the tires and you won’t notice a difference.

Either way is good. If you are worried about the endurance being too stiff, you can't go wrong with the Maxxis. I'd probably go with whichever option is the cheapest. Both are good tires. Endurance just doesn't have much history yet, but seems good so far.

Thanks guys.
With a rebate I can get the Endurance cheaper than the Maxxis.

Sounds good! If you don't mind, where did you get a rebate? My nephew has decided on Endurance also....

2 years 4 months and 18 thousand miles on my trailer king 225 /75 /15 e rated tires. No problems except for one puncture flat. TPMS in constant use with 6 month battery swaps. They say you get what you pay for. But i think it's more you get out what you take care of.

At a recent trade show I visited the Escappee booth and found that one of the benefits is a 15% tire discount with Goodyear. So I joined.
A person must purchase the tires through Goodyear.com and you can schedule an appointment for installation at the same time.

Thanks! I will look into that.

Go with the tires that make you happy. The stiffer sidewalls can be offset with a set of shock absorbers on the camper. Make sure to have the wheel/tire balanced and roll on. We put 30k miles on a set of E rated Provider rubbers and the tread still looks great.

The proven one provided they are fresh. Check DOT codes on the tire.

I had a set of GY Endurance tires put on my TT yesterday at Discount Tire. They offered a $ 60.00 rebate for purchases through the end of January. I don't know if there will be other rebates coming up or not. The rebate is online so it makes it REALLY easy with just the invoice number for input.

Thanks. I forwarded your message to my nephew and told him he needs to get a move on

The Discount Tire rebate equaled about a 10% reduction on my particular size. There was no rebate currently available directly from Goodyear on the Endurance.

I found that as a member of USAA I can get a 25% discount on Good Year tires. They must be ordered on line by first fling into the USAA website and that will give you entrance to the Good Year website. It must be done in this manner to get the discount.

You don't have to put the full 80 PSI in the load range E tires. I would think 65 PSI would more than suffice if you started with 50 PSI Load Range C tires. Less air would give you a better ride.

If one reads the footnote on the chart, industry standards for load and inflation are being revised as of the date on this chart.

Go to goodyear.com/rv for latest info.

This will no doubt apply to all other manufacturers as well as it's supposed to be an "Industry Standard".
