Hercules Trailer Tires

Has anyone had any experience with ST tires for Hercules? Just got 4 ST225-75R15 Load range E for my 08 Eagle Super Lite 30.5 RLS. I know they are made by Cooper Tire. Any real world experience out there?

24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.

Google "Hercules ST225-75R15 reviews".

Here's one opinion:

Any 5ver with 16" or larger rims should use Sailun S637 G rated tires as they are proven on many forums and now standard on many new 5th wheels. I have them and love them as there a commercial tire and we paid $140 per tire.

Did I misread that review he said he was running trailer tires on his s10 pickup? Go figure they dont last if that is the case and at $58 a tire not sure which one it was but their 901's are more like $150 tire.

I have used hercules tires in the past on my truck years ago. They were very good. If you do a search on here, IRV2 or RV.v.net I think you will find very good reviews on them as this has come up before.

If they are China, I'd not buy them. Goodyear Endurance tires are US and seem to be doing well in the field so far. US LT tires are a good option as well.

Problem with Goodyear endurance is there only available in an E-Rated tire and if you have a heavy fiver their too light and you should go to a G-rated.

LT it, they come in higher load range if you need more than an E.

Put an LT tire on a pinnacle and it will fail. The side walls are not strong enough even if you find it over an E-rated. And yes G-614 is the next step as i was saying E-rated tires should not be used on heavy 5vers. The beast tires are gone on the pinnacle in favor of g-rated.

Nah, some of large high end trailer manufacturers put on LT tires right from the line. Read lots of ppl put LT tires on heavy trailers with no issues. Here the farmers run LT tires on their hay trailers which they grossly overload. I put LT tires on my previous 5th wheel and the thing never pulled so good. LT tires flex a lot when used on the steer axle of vehicles. If these endurance tires don't hold up I will replace with LT's.
