Replacing Tires

I like many others have decided to change the tires on my one year old 29 RKS. I have read comments about different brands choices. Before I pull the trigger, I would like to check with everyone else and see what you have chosen and what road range you have decided on? The three brands that I have been looking at is Maxxis, Carlisle, and Goodyear. Thanks for any and all help.

I went with the Carlisle tires early this year and put about 6,000 miles on them. They drive great, have kept their pressures nicely, seem much smoother than the old ones, and I can't really find a negative about them. Our local RV shop sells all of them and couldn't find anyone who has really complained about the newer Carlisle tires.

Goodyear, Load Range E for our TT.

Be sure to check your rim's max pressure before you buy.

I changed the tires out on our 27DSRL to Goodyear Marathon right around the time they moved from production in China to the new USA made Endurance trailer tires. I ended up with the Chinese Marathon and while I wasn't overly happy I also wasn't specific enough to be mad at the dealer for installing them. They ended up being great tires and wore way better than the Trailer Kings that came on it and were pretty toast after 10k miles.

I'd get the US made tires without a second thought if I were doing it today.

Your TT is a lot heavier than mine. I replaced my tires about 2 years ago with Carlisle HT. I reviewed a lot of tires, even made a spreadsheet that documented each tire option. I decided to go up one load rating. Verified the rims could support the higher air pressures.

The Carlisle tires hold their air very well, I almost never have to top off the air pressure. I also went with metal valve stems. I probably have about 5000 miles on the tires, and have been very happy. I also changed out my spare.

Its winter so it’s a good time to do your research.

I went with Discount Tire, I chose not to go with the extended tire warrenty. I picked up a nail this summer. I found a flat tire at home, after sitting for a few weeks . I pulled the tire and Discount Tire fixed it for free.

Mt 27DSRL is about 7500lbs fully loaded out to max. I upgraded as soon as I could from Load C china bombs (rated to 65mph but I wouldn't go that fast with them) to Goodyear Endurance Load D (rated to 80+ so I will go 65mph with them). Been a little over 5,000 miles so far and the hold air pressure and look brand new. I love the way the TT towes with them and also not as bouncy once set up at site.

Oem aluminum specs are hiding, any insight for their rating?
