My new Carlisle Radial HD's have gotten us to Macinaw City no problems so far. Not planning on any going home either!

Upgraded last season to the Carlisle ND and they are holding up well. No issues and no regrets.

Right now I'm feeling that the Carlisle HD's will be my next tire at the beginning of next season (fours years on the DOT code). No issues with the current Maxxis tires, but the Carlisle's appear to be equal quality at a lower price. Sorry Maxxis.

I put 5 new HD's on our 5r a couple days before our 3000 mile trip. Worked awesome, no temp or pressure issues.

I've got about 3500 on our Carlisle HD and I can definitely say they are a great improvement over the OEM Trailer Kings. Went up a load range (E) and the trailer rides/tows so much better. Temps run cooler and are consistent. Can't find anything bad to say about them - I really like them. Will leave for FL in Oct. so we'll see how they do on that road trip (did an excellent job on initial trip).

I installed mine last year in May so I'm looking at about 16 months of use and roughly 9600 miles. Not a minute's trouble, much cooler tire temperatures, smoother ride, less "cargo movement" inside the trailer and although I can't attribute it to the trailer tires, about 0.5MPG improvement in fuel mileage. I say I can't attribute that to the tires because there's been some changes in diesel blending in Michigan, some changes in speed limits and I do tow about 3-5 MPH faster now than I did with the "china may pops". So, with those differences, I'm not sure if the improvement in economy is tire related or not.

Anyway, I'm very satisfied, see nearly no wear and certainly no abnormal wear. This is with the Carlisle RH the "first generation model of the HD". I installed the HD tires on my boat trailer this spring and have had no problems with them as well. Next spring I'll probably remove these from the Cougar and install them on my flatbed car hauler. My flatbed trailer tires will be 5 or 6 years old, so it's getting time to change them, even though I seldom use the trailer. At current pricing from WalMart, it's a "hard decision" to buy something other than Carlisle RH tires for most any trailer application that's within their load range ratings.

Just got back from a trip to Port Huron KOA with the grandsons, My Carlise HD's performed great. Pressure steady and temp never got above 82 on each tire. Top speed 65!! What a comfort to have them and my TPMS to boot..
