Carlisle Radial Trail RH

Well, I now believe that Carlisle Radial Trail RH tires are good quality. In this post (clicky) I mentioned that I had bought them. Now I've got almost 12,000 miles on them and have not had any issues. I do have a TPMS and keep them properly inflated; I'll drive 70 MPH all day if its a legal speed and the traffic, weather and road conditions permit it.

The tires I buy in the future will either be Carlisle or Maxxis depending on whichever is cheaper and more available to me.

Good to hear!! They have been on my radar for sometime. My local tire folks don't have a good supplier for Maxxis and my choices have been between Goodyear and Carlisle! Been leaning toward Carlisle because of where they are made.

Check it out cuz I believe it's China...not that there's anything wrong with that but I've not heard anyone say they want to buy tires because they are manufactured in China.

Truthfully, I've gotten over the anti Chinese thing because it really has to do with how good the manufacturing controls are within the company and not the country. There was a time when I had a hissy fit over chinese built tire when I had two new ones blow on the same trip. I realized my wrath should have been toward my tire dealer that I had trusted for years. He was well aware that I don't cut corners on tires. I had bought two sets of 4 and he assured me that he had been selling them for years and didn't have any issues. Both sets were trash. Made one more trip to that dealer to let him know that it was his last sale from us. Carlisle like everyone else now has a plant in China. Don't know which ones are built there. I bought two 16 inch 10 ply Carlisle trailer tire 6 months ago that were made in the USA.

My four Load E 225/75 15 tires I purchased this past January say "Made In China". I guess size does matter
Chinese tires don't bother me either.

I don't have Carsiles but had a bad opinion of them in the past for rv tires. The Radial Trail RH and peoples results with it have changed my opinion lately.

I don't think that all tires from China are junk but they have to have a track record and be backed by a company with a good reputation.

Looks like my tire is losing air.

Here's one of the Carlisle Radial Trail RH tires that was on my trailer; it's seeping just a little bit of air.

This tire was on the right rear axle. I have a TPMS and keep my tires at 80-PSI; while the TPMS worked, my first knowledge of a problem was a rather loud explosive noise caused by the tire in the picture.

It is certainly possible that the tire sustained some road damage somewhere, but none that I remember. It was the rear tire on the right hand side; seems like the front tire would usually be the one to get road hazard damage. I check my tires for issues before moving the trailer and at each fuel fill up (and have found two bulging ready to pop tires by doing so). In this case, I had no clue something was about to happen. The tire has about 15,000 towing miles on it and was installed in June, 2015.

I'm just filing this happening - my first tire blowout ever. I've bought four new Carlisle Radial Trail HD tires. I'll post my experience with them here.

Remember that ST rated tires are only rated to 65mph they can blow out at higher speeds. I had 4 carsile tires separate around the side wall to the tread where one could see the steel cords, lucky only one blewout. I use to drive at the speed limit ie 70 mph.now u don't go over 65 when towing.
