Get ones that are round, black, and smell like rubber. Ok, really.... according to you signature your 5th wheel has 235/80 x 16s. A little more info about what you're looking for would be helpful.

I like the round black ones.
But I have noticed that they get a lot of dirt and mud on them.

If 16s, the best current choices are Goodyear Endurance or Sailuns. Search on this and other RV sites and Sailuns get the nod. Maxxis are no longer recommended.

Sailuns are not availble locally here. I immediately changed out the Carlisles that came on my 2019 Rockwood with Goodyear Endurance and they made a WORLD OF DIFFERENCE in the ride, handling and upgrade in load and speed rating. Totally worth it. I also sold thse brand new Carlisles on Craigslist which made up about 1/3 the cost of the Goodyears.

With the information you've provided, without researching your trailer model, the best information is to follow the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations found in the trailer's owner's manual. No owner's manual? Get the information from the federal certification label. Brands? LOL!

OK, I went and looked....Original Equipment tire size, ST235/80R16 LRE. Best upgrade, ST235/80R16 LRG. (The kind is ST, special trailer). Never had a problem with the OE tires? Get more just like them, brand is always optional.

Have seen numerous anecdotal reports of Maxxis blowouts more than three years now, this and other RV sites.

Of course, you'll find blowout reports for any tire.

I've read and know lots of fellow RV'ers that have given excellent reports on the Maxxis 8008's.

When I was shopping for tires earlier this year in Denver I couldn't find them anywhere...otherwise I would have purchased them.

One tire store said that they are now 'The Internet Tire'...meaning that most tire stores are not stocking them anymore and the online tire shops are about the only place to get them.

Which is too bad...

I ended up getting 'E' range Hercules SP2's...have close to 6000 miles on them so far in and all is good.

For many years Maxxis was not used as OEM on RV trailers. Thus they received very good reviews, mostly because they were used as upgraded replacements - say, from C-D. Shortly after getting some OEM contracts they started showing-up on some failure reports. Today, IMO, they are becoming antiquated. I say that because they have not upgraded their speed ratings above 65 MPH. Testing is required. They have the facilities for the tests so why no speed letters on their tires?

Absolutely beyond me why discount tire does not carry sailuns

They have maxxis and endurance.

My recommendation - get "black, round, inflated" tires that have a load rating of at least 20% higher than your rigs actual weight.
