Some say only LT tires are reliable, but I've yet to find any credible support for that particular opinion or find LTs with a "G" Load Rating.

Replaced the OEM tires with a set of G rated Goodyear G 614 RST Unisteel tires. A bit expensive but have never regretted having excellent rubber under my rig.

Goodyear Marathon. Heading into season 4 with a lot of off highway (gravel) travel. Our TT weighs 10000lb ready to roll. Love them... no issues.
Like all tires.... look after them. Check pressure once a week when we are putting on a lot of mikes . Always park on a couple of planks for the off season.

After much research and a recommendation from a friend who has been in the tire business for 30 years, I bought Goodyear Endurance. Although looking at other posts I should have shopped around for the same tire. As I paid about $160 each. Oh well the piece of mind is worth it.

Goodyear Endurance Load Range E for our 5er. Great warranty through America's Tire. Noticed a significant improvement in trailer stability while towing as soon as we drove off the lot. Made in the USA.


Our previous OE M Goodyear Marathons failed after less than 2 years of towing. Huge "bubbles" on the side walls of two tires as we were heading home from a camping trip. Fortunately we were only 20 miles from home. Stay away from anything made in China.

We've had our Michelin XPS Ribs for over 8 years, replaced the OEM China bombs after about 400 miles....NO signs of cracking, although I use 303 protectant on them quite religiously....My tire man said I would never wear them out....they would rot first.

They are expensive, but not when you look at how long they have lasted. Our rig weighs around 12.5K lbs.

Disagree ~~ the tires with the best reputation are made in China ~~ Sailun S637.

Ditto. 18500 miles including the worst that Alaska and Canada have to offer, they still look new.

X2 -- Some say any tire marked "ST" or "China" is unreliable. Those opinions are very strongly held by some, but I find no credible support. My advice is to consider all rational opinions, but attach the greater weight to those supported by verifiable or otherwise reliable information.

Very close to my story. We had Carlisle HD on our previous trailer, but after pulling our new one 50 miles home...it went to Discount Tire and had Goodyear Endurance tires put on it. We've only got about 5,500 miles on them, but we love them.

I wasn't aware of Goodyear's guarantee previously mentioned - but the fact they're American Made was a big factor in my decision.

I had few problems with the Carlisles, but felt Endurance was the way to go now.

We had one tire that lost 100% of the tread, but not an ounce of air. Didn't even know it for no telling how many miles. The best we could figure - we drove about 100 miles (based on some very rough roads that we hit) with no tread on one tire and it still had 80 PSI.

That impressed me with Carlisle HDs - and we had one time one tire picked up a nail in the sidewall and ruined it. Not the fault of Carlisle, and with my Discount Tire "warranty certificate" it was replaced free of charge.

I'd put Carlisle right along side Endurance - but the American Made factor was the tipping point.
