Wow. Not the answer I was hoping for. I'm rethinking my opinion of the "new" Carlisle ST tires. So far, my RH's are doing well with many thousands of miles. But with your experience and their denial of warranty I'm really concerned.

We OKI do hope they last but the lack of warranty means little to me, if you have ever had a road hazard claim on a car tire you will know what I mean.

I too phoned Carlisle before I bought the HDs, the guy I talked to was really excited about the new HDs saying they were much improved we will see.

I wouldn't let one persons bad experience with the Carlisle bother me. In any discussion about any particular brand of tire, there will always be one or two folks who will claim to have had nothing but bad luck with that tire. Meanwhile, there are hundreds of folks who have had great luck with said tire. As there are multiple causes for tire failure, the one or two naysayers may be causing their own failures, and not realizing it. Myself, I've had Carlisle's on both of my last two rv's, and have absolutely nothing bad to say about them. The Maxxis 8008 ST tire is also supposed to be a good tire, but cost $50 more per tire. Again, I've read about those failing too. I will say, those are the only two brands that I would consider, after countless hours of reading and researching.
The Carlisle HD also sports an M speed rating, up to 81 mph. All other ST tires that I know of are rated up to 65 mph. I don't exceed 70 mph while towing, but it is comforting to know that you could without worrying about the tires coming apart.

There must have been some significant changes in Carlisle's ST tires. I just changed tires on a 20 ft. flat bed trailer. All of the tires replaced were from 7 to 10 years old and I closely inspected them as I pulled them off and put new rubber on. They were 2 Marathons and 2 Carlisle's. Non of them were put on as a set. one Carlisle that was 8 years old and D rated was cracked up and was clearly over due for replacing. Another was 7 years old and E rated and showed no cracking what so ever. We don't use that trailer often and never over long distances, so I stretched the replacement. Don't know why but the E rated tire clearly was made from a different material that held up much better.

Tire #4 just took a dump.. the belt started coming through the tread.. These tires have never been over 65 mph good amount of tread still on them. On the way S this fall I will get a set of Maxxis .. they are not sold in Canada...

They may have held up longer due to being a 10 ply tire instead of an 8 ply. Stiffer sidewalls would surely contribute to that theory. But who knows..??

I have had excellent luck with Maxxis trailer tires. I am putting a set on my new Eagle HT that we will be picking up next week.
