Tires are ordered! I misread one of my quotes (they put "Car" Radial Trail HD instead of "Carlisle") and they are another $100 cheaper than the other shop we were going with!


So now I'm off to Amazon for an EMS!

That's what we did as well, mainly since ST205/75R14 LRD are the heaviest 14 inch tire that Carlisle makes. The new version of our trailer is coming from the factory with the wider ST215/75R14 LRD tires for the extra reserve capacity. The GY Endurance was the only name brand ST215/75R14 LRD tires that I could find. Carlisle has a ST215/75R14 but only in LRC. What I would really like to see is for them to come out with a ST205/75R14 LRE if there is such a thing. Not a tire expert so I'm not sure if a 14 inch LRE even makes sense.

LRE and higher are more for the bigger rigs, at that point I would go to Sailun tires

I traded my factory Trailer King "Tow Master" China Bombs out with "D" rated Carlisle tires and got good use out of them, with the exception of a Blow Out on one. I then traded up to "E" rated. Two years ago I had one of the Carlisle's tread separate and a bulge start on another. Going to Discount Tire I told them to put some Carlisle's back on the trailer. The dealer said that they have been having problems on the Carlisle's as of late and suggested the GY Endurance (not the Marathon's). I've had them on for 15,000 miles now and they are performing well. Some of the benefits of the GY Endurance are they are made in the US, They have a stiffer side wall and they have an 87 MPH speed rating. Now, I pull my trailer at 65 MPH, but what the higher speed rating gives is better durability in the heat of the summer. Where I live the tires are HOT before you even get on the road. While I'm on my soapbox, let me caution you all about chasing tires based on price. Until you've had a blow out that tore up your entire mid section of the trailer taking the kitchen with it, then you'll be glad to buy the best tires, not just the cheapest tires. It hasn't happened to me but a friend of mine lost use of his 5th wheel 3 summers ago due to the damage of a tire blowout.
