I have just purchased an 2006 Raptor 3712, The trailer has fairly new Carlisle tires 225 75r 15 E rated and the one tire is already needing replacemet due to the cords shifting. I would like to purchased a Goodyear tire because the local deal is great but I'm looking for some opinions on what the best tire is?

Thank you.

Wheww... you are going to get different opinions on tires for sure. I got a lot of grief for getting a set of Carlisle's, But i as well have a reputable tire guy and he assured me that these are good tires. I have put quite a few thousand miles on these and tires are doing great. I ALWAYS check air pressure and lug nuts before each take off. I think this is a must.
I have also heard to replace your tires about every 4 years regardless? I did mine at 3 years. Just from sitting and cracking. Unfortunately these sit for long intervals, sometimes.
