Maxxis are well regarded. I have them on my Jayflight and am satisfied with them.

Have checked with a local tire shop that I have dealt with before for auto tires. They recommend Carlisle 235/80R16 upgraded from load range D to range E. They normally do not stock Maxxis, but can get on special order. Prices are about the same. Does anyone have experience with Carlisles ?

I have stopped to help folks with Carlisle
Blow outs. I have seen trailer damage from Carlisle
Blow outs. I know of no one who tows a trailer
That recommends Carlisle. I use LT tires with
a highway rib. Never a problem. They were OEM

Thanks so much !
I would highly recommend that you stay away from Chinese built tires no matter who's brand is on the tire. I replaced all of my tires last year after the travel season had ended for us. I had a tire failure in Indiana on the way home so I thought it was time to replace every thing. A large local tire distributor who up until then I trusted suggested that I replace with BCT tires that they claimed that they had no comebacks on. After putting them on I began to read different accounts of premature tire failures on trailers that were Chinese built. I bought a set of tire minders (sensors) that told tire pressure as well as temperature. We left Md. on a Western trip this July. We blew the first tire in Wyoming with absolutely no warning. Tire pressure was 65 psi and 85 degrees when she went. Blew the second one in Nebraska on the way home in exactly same manner. These were structural tire failures, not cut down tires. I would strongly recommend that you dictate only American built tires. The tires that we took off were Good Year that served us well. I also have a 15000 lb. dump trailer that has Carlisle on it with no issues.

OK - thanks everyone for weighing in. Majority of you seem to recommend Maxxis. My dealer can order Maxxis, but says they are made in USA. Elsewhere on the internet, I have seen reference to Maxxis being made in Thailand. Can anyone clear up this discrepancy for me ? And I also see a number of folks on the internet putting in a good word for Denman. Does anyone know if this is the same Denman that sold out to Titan a while back, or is there another Denman company out there ? They were supposedly made in USA, I have heard, but may not be made anymore ?? Thanks for any info you can provide.

Any shop will recommend the brands they carry over anything else... Carlisle are the lowest of the low end...

My Maxxis were made in Thailand. I don't think any Maxxis are made in the USA. I'd check on their web site, tho.

I'd go with Maxxis (and did) over Carlisle even if they cost more.

You might be interested in this link about ST versus LT Tires I only use ST tires and they are marathons to boot. Never had a problem on several different 5ivers and TT's

I have also read info from a tire maker, that ST tire sidewalls are designed to stand up to the sideways forces you get when turning a corner with tandem axles, and that LT and P tires don't have that feature. Just another angle on this whole controversial question.
