Thanks for the input everyone. Meanwhile...guess what? The dealer picked up the Cougar to tow back to their shop to make repairs....and they blew another tire on route!

Opinions on Goodyear Endurance?

If the max capacity is 3500lbs, does that mean total trailer max load is 14,000lbs? If so, a reduction of 10pct brings it down to 12,600 in only one year. The GVWR for my Cougar is around 12,000lbs.

As stated previously the Goodyear Endurance has only been out a few months, not years. And if you listen to the Goodyear dealers spiel bear in mind they also touted the old Goodyear "maypops." Just because it says Goodyear doesn't make it good. I'd let the Endurance brand make a few years first.

Yes. That's what that means. You want to buy with enough reserve to last several years. Not the posted numbers on your trailer, although that is fine. Take it to a scale to see how much it weighs loaded for you. Then you'll know how much your reserve is and can knock off 10% each year and know when you may start to see problems again.

While not the stated capacity of the ST they are most likely stronger then the overrated China Bombs!

Replaced all 4 towmax at less than 3500miles. One had lost a piece of tread about 4"x 10" and the other 3 had large bubbled up tread areas. Replaced with Firestone Transforce AT Lt tires as that was all our small town dealer had in stock.. Very pleased with them after about 2 years and about 15,000 miles. Some mfgs are now installing LT tires on new units.
