In this RV park they have a caution sign as you enter warning about curb strikes. Bottom line, they aren't responsible for damages you may suffer from striking their curbs with your tires.

Sorry for the double post, my reply from the other post:

Sidewall scuff guard: I have cringed a few times looking in my rear view mirror "scuffing" tires (lightly at very slow speeds) on a curb sometimes it's just seems unavoidable. This scuff guard seems to work well as I incurred no visible damage on these occasions. Obviously a good place for 2 pounds of extra protection.

Not the only "significant difference" as it is also made in the USA, the biggest plus for me for lots of reasons, after several Chins bomb blowouts.

I did notice the "1/32" difference, which I might consider on a passenger type vehicle where tread wear is a concerned. I have never worn down a trailer ST tire tread even remotely thin.

My question was why (and where too I guess) they are heavier. It cant be a bad thing.

Marathon Bombs

I had a very similar experience to what Alley Cat went thru just a few weeks ago. In Florida two Marathons (not quite 3 years old) exploded within 150 miles. This was two separate trips, about two weeks apart. When #2 blew up, I was able to get hold of Davis tire in Jacksonville. They had Endurance Load range E's in stock. They came out and put on 4 new ones. Not cheap, but I was on my way in just a couple of hours. Headed back to upstate NY with no further issues.

Weight rating

Just a quick note regarding these tires. I was about to buy them for my toy hauler but stopped at at the last minute.

Despite being a load rating of "E", the max weight for these Goodyear Endurance tires is 3420. Every other tire on the market seems to have a load rating of 3520 for "E". So, I was about to lose 400lbs of towing capacity. I have 7000lb axles, and need to be at or above that 3500 mark.

It's very probable that the actual rating for your axles is 6880 ea. The vehicle manufacturer's rating will be on the certification label.

During the time frame for the manufacture date of your trailer was built Keystone was going round and round with NHTSA. It was about axle loads for 7000# (Axle manufacturer certification) axles fitted with ST235/85R16E tires. One of the tire standards in the FMVSS building requirements states that tires of the same size having different load capacities must default to the lowest load capacity unless the vehicle manufacturer stipulates the OE tires must be above 3500# for 7000# axle (Vehicle manufacturer certification) fitments. The older GY Marathons, Maxxis and the new GY endurance ST tires are all rated at 3420# at 80 PSI. All other ST tires are either 3500# or 3520# at 80 PSI.

I know of at least three Keystone certification label recalls for incorrect tire fitments on 7000# axles between 2010 & 2015. Keystone's fix was to issue new certification label & cargo label to resolve the problem. Since then they have been smart enough - in most cases - to insure the trailer has the proper documentation for tire fitments.

I have the new endurance tire on my 5er after my incident last august.
I have 4 trips on them.
500, 600,500,650 miles so 2250 total on them. yes the tread looks light. but with the E rating and then the new speed rating. I am very pleased with them.
i have had the factory set on there, 2 sets of maxxis next, now the endurance on a
9 year old camper now.

So I had a travel trailer last year and put on the GY Endurance and could not be more pleased. The trailer towed so much better and felt a lot better when cornering. The new tires did not squat like the old ones did. This year I bought a new 5th wheel and plan on swapping out the factory tires with either these endurance tires or Sailun 637 tires. I have not made my mind up on which set to go with.
