Looking for New Tires

Well my 25 month old Good Year Marthrons made in the USA let go on my 5th wheel. Luckly I have an Air Pressure Monitoring system. I got off the interstate with 40 lbs in the tire. The tire had a nail in it but the Steel belt was coming out half way around the tire.
No more Goodyears !!!
I was looking at BFGoodridch TA's as I had on the other trailer. Stopped today at a tire store and a guy said look at Carlise they have a 12 ply tire but its a 85r rather than a 80r which is one inch taller. My axles are spacer at 33 inches C/C. the space between the old tires is 3 inches. I'm thinking we're good to go but don't know much about the Carlise Tires, but they are made in the USA.
OK what do you think ????

Wayne

yogi154,
What make of TPMS do you have for your 5er?
As for tires, i tend to stick to the major brands, and Carlisle is not one of them.

OK Ed and Seann, how about recommending a tire brand to the OP since Carlisles have been ruled out?

Yep that's what I figured Well my choice was and still is BFG TA's I had them on our Cardinal. I just checked my Goodyear's made in China. When I was at Jayco's factory I looked at the tires Made in the USA. Well I guess I didn't get them.

Pressure Pro System rated the best on a couple other fourms. Their teck is the best too, as they take their time to answer your questions.

As was said previously, I stick with major brands and Carlisle isn't one of them. I personally like Good Year and will be replacing my factory Marathons with G614's next year. I like the good reports on the Michelin XPS Ribs, but they don't have a high enough weight rating for my 5'er so I can't use them.
