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.
