Need Trailer Tires

I'm in need of some ST225/R75-15 tires, would the Goodyear endurance tires be a good choice.
definitely don't want any Chinese poppers.

Wish stewart would have left this in the Ex forum since we have a lot of TT guys there....

a few years ago we were doing 50-70k a year towing our race cars around and couldn’t keep a 15” tire alive, tried all the brands and while the Goodyear’s seemed ok on our little Bumper pull for years just didn’t cut it anymore, certainly not the China tires.

we switched to 17.5” and tires went from carrying at least 4 spares to just one and only had to use it for a nail we picked up as opposed to complete tire failures on the 15.

We still have the camper pulling thread in the Ex forum for general trailer stuff (I wanted to keep that thread in the Ex forum even after we revamped and expanded the towing forum a few years ago and moved a bunch of tow/trailer threads to the tow forum), and while our Ex forum can cover a lot of subjects since there are 4 different engines that came in the Ex, I try to keep specific trailer questions confined to the proper tow forum.

As for the Ex guys specifically seeing this and chiming in, if Olaf wants I can copy his post to the general camper thread we have in the Ex forum so he can get input from them too.

I`m running Carlisle HD`s ST 225/75/15 in load range "E". they are one of the best tires out there! They have an 81mph speed rating. I wouldn't run any other tire, even the Good Years. I have seen Good Years after a few thousand miles and don't like how they wear, too choppy!

^^^^ Same here I run the Carlisle radial trail HD in the 225/75R/15. Load range E. So far so good on 2 season with them. I have them on a 10950gvwr TT. Have towed to Tennesse and back from NW Ohio, South Haven, MI and many other places in between. I probably have about 2500 or so miles on them. They look good.

I'd have to vote for the Marathon Endurance. I did two return trips from Toronto to St-John's, Newfoundland this past winter. (Anyone who has driven Newfoundland from tip to tip in the winter will understand.)

I was pulling my 24 foot cargo trailer weighing in about 9000lbs. Total mileage just for these two trips was approx 8000 miles. Never an issue and tires still look and pull great.

Rod.

Carlisle here as well. 205/75/15 D load range on our 9200# 5th wheel. Put just over 5k mile cross country trip thru 8 states this summer. They survived i40 thru Arizona, truck had a tire fail on that gawd aweful road. Still able to read the Carlisle name imprint in the middle bead of tread

The Maxxis ST M8008 are good trailer tires made in US. They have a good following in the RV circles.

Do yours state made in USA as most are made in Taiwan I believe? I run them on my Outback in Texas all day at 70-75 with no problems. 10 ply/80 psi.

My bad....They don't appear to be made in USA, but they have been good tires.

No problem. They do make some tires in the US according to the website. Just not these that I know of.

Really good tires so far. 70-75 for several hours and they aren't even overly warm to the touch.

Negatives on the "Goodyear" tires may be model/year specific. The new Endurance tire isn't made in China. So take the negatives with that in mind.

I'm running the Hartland tire from Discount Tire on my toy hauler. Load range E. After 4,000 miles, no issues and they look good. I'm waiting until 5,000 miles to do a formal review. I gave serious consideration to going with the Goodyear Endurance at the time but couldn't find any in stock locally. My local Discount Tire had the Hartland in stock. The Hartland is made in China. I'm using the 15" tires and they go for less than $100 each.

Those Hartland look pretty good also. I've gotten right at 2800 miles on the Maxxis set I put on last summer.

They look like new still so I am hopeful. I do keep an eye on them though.
