(4) Maxxis radial - Discount Tire - $368

(4) Goodyear Endurance radial - Discount Tire - $440 (came on my Jayco)


Everyone wants the best, everyone sells the best, everyone recommends the best (if it's not your money).

Which do you like... considering the cost?
Our 5th came with TowMax which were great tires, right up to the point that two of them shredded themselves in a 75 mile stretch.
I bought G’year G614’s which are LT tires and they’ve given me no issues.

I credit my TPMS with preventing any damage to my trailer when they disintegrated.

Thank you for this thread. I have a 2 year-old trailer. How do I determine when I change the tires? They look fine to me but it sounds like everyone uses time and/or miles to determine when to change regardless of what they look like. Can I get a few tips of what to look for or some guidelines on when to change?

Thanks!

My "cheap" tires came on the trailer and they are now 4-years old.

I just towed the trailer 200-miles with those tires, and no problems at all. They look perfect... no cracking with about 60% tread.

But, I will have more piece of mind if I get new tires this spring.

Maybe I will sleep better... after I pay the bill.

To "date" or check the age of your tires, look at the sidewall for "DOT" behind that you will see 8 letters and numbers then an additional 4 numbers.

Example U8X7 TWPH 2118

The first 8 are plant codes and mfr codes. The last 4 represent the week and year the tires were produced. In the example above it means the 21st week of 2018.

Trailer Tires

I'm a Goodyear dealer in Iowa and sell quite a few trailer tires of all brands. The new Goodyear Endurance is made in us and is holding up really good. Good luck with your purchase.

On my Jayco I installed Maxxis 8008s. Today I will either go Maxxis 8008s or Goodyear Endurance when it is time. I have read there is Carlisle trailer tire at Walmart that is supposed to be pretty good.

Purchased 4 Goodyear Endurance 205/75R14 from Goodyear.com for 445.78 installed at our local Goodyear tire shop, cheapest I have found.

Just as an FYI my current China specials are 4 years old, time to go.

Checked with my local dealers today... the Goodyear Endurance are way cheaper from Discount Tire, than from my local dealers.
