Time for tires.

Looking to put new tires on my trailer. Are Goodyear Endurance still the go to tire for trailers?

I'm contemplating the same thing. My current tires are now 6 years old. Endurance tires are now $184 each at Discount Tire. Maxxis are $153 and Carlisle Radial trail are $135. These are all E rated tires size 225x75x15. When did Endurance get so expensive? And yes, I believe they are still the go to tire but the Maxxis have a great reputation as well.

I've always used Maxxis 8008's on all my trailers including my car trailer, large enclosed and utility. Our current camper came with Goodyears so I will run them until they need to be changed and then back to Maxxis for me...

Don't buy tires based on price...buy them based on reputation. Find the best price for the tire you feel has the best reputation. A roadside call and the damage from a blow out will cost more than the whole set.

I've had very good luck with Maxxis, I just went up a load range for more peace of mind.

Iím on my second set of Endurance. OEM set had plenty of tread but were 5 years old and it wasnít worth taking a risk when we were about to take a long trip. Iíve been very happy with them.

I think all tires, if weight matched and well maintained, will perform just as good as any other brand. Technology has come a long way. Buy local, inspect often and especially...maintain proper pressure. Folks get lazy. You can't tell by looking at them. If you checked other campers around where you are camping, I'd bet $100 against a stale donut, 99% of them would need air or would have unbalanced inflation.

Same here. Moved from the stock load range C tires to load range D. Maxxis 8008 are great tires. I bought 5 new ones so I'd have a spare, and I'm glad I did. A 12" spike punctured the tread and went out the sidewall somewhere near Redding, CA. I'm still running on 4 Maxxis, but the spare is some other brand.

Check out https://www.discounttiredirect.com/ for current deals.

It's true, maintenance matters. That being said there are still some junk brands of tire out there.

Changed the China Bombs year one to Goodyear Endurance and went from load rating C to D.

Last August I put a new set of Endurance D rated tires on. The old ones still looked great, held air well, no checking etc., but we were taking a 5 week tour of the Southwest and I wanted to avoid tire problems, especially since we have a single axle trailer.

If you can wait until Memorial Day-ish, you can get pretty good prices on Endurance tires from your local Goodyear dealer. I replaced my D rated no-name tires with E rated Endurance. They are great tires, MUCH heavier than the no-names and run much cooler going down the road, because it doesn't flex nearly as much in normal conditions.

You are exactly right about maintenance and air pressure. But even with that, Iíd never risk my family or property to a set of ďChina bombs.Ē Too many horror stories ó many here on JOF. Tires, like brakes, are one of those I donít skimp on.

Have to agree with this. I have had blow outs on every china tire I have had. They were all maintained with proper air pressure checked frequently. Since sticking with Endurance tires not a single problem.

Discount Tire will price match. When I replaced the tires on our TT Walmart had Carlisle Radial Trails for about $25 or $30 less per tire. I took the quote across the street and saved $100.00.

And on top of that you get an educated evaluation of tires for your rig rather than someone's favorite.


I trust the people at Discount and have for 50 years.

Ino experience with GY, but can’t tell you how happy I am with Hankook. I had issues with continentals on my Rv and Toad 3 separate times! Uneven ware on the toad twice, switched to Hankook, 20,000 miles later no issues. Then on my first RV the rubber was so far out of Balance they could never get them road force balanced correctly !

48,529 miles in 7 years with no problems - on second pair of Endurance 215-75-14 and they still look great. Had original Thorjayco brand for first year or so and and now get a new set of Endurance every 3-4 years.
