I dunno if I even dare ask, but I might as well. Anybody heard of Greenball tires? They any good? How would they compare to a Carlisle? Yeah, I know, another piece of******tire.

I'm sitting here off of I-5 in SoCal on the Grapevine with a few chunked remains of one of my Carlisle 225/75-15 E's and a wheel ground down into a frisbee shape, thanks to California's messed up roads. I know the road did it, because I remember the string of potholes that were impossible to see coming in the dark until it was too late.

I've put my spare on, and the only tire I can get locally is a Greenball, also load range E, from America's Tire in Lancaster.

My other choice is to limp back to Reno to a Les Schwab and get one of their own brand tires for $20 more (probably the same one for all I know). Oh and Big O had a similar tire (store brand) for the same price, but couldn't get a wheel to fit my trailer (6x5.5).

So... I'm trying to decide what to do. I'm here to visit the Hungry Valley OHV area for a day or so, so I have some time to think about it.

Thoughts?

Never heard of em’. I think you are left with one option as I see it; buy the tire and finish your trip. Once you’re back home purchase what you want. I would not try and limp anywhere when there is a tire available for you.

Clark W.Griswold ended up with some greenwalls due to a slight problem in St. Louis, but I've never heard of Greenballs.

Once you make it over the Grapevine to Santa Clarita there are plenty of tire stores to chose from (supporting lots of RV owners).

Mike's Tires is a good source. Mike is a PITA, but his prices are fair and his shop's service is very good. Exit I-5 at Valencia Blvd and turn East. Valencia becomes Soledad Canyon after about three miles. Mike's is on Soledad.

I just "googled" them. The reviews by users say to stay away from them. Made in Taiwan. One of the most inexpensive on the market, but for a reason.

I've got them on my vintage Deere garden tractor. Quite a leap to 15".

They came stock on my DF. They were fine until the 10K mark then a blowout, then a big bubble on the sidewall then I bought all new. I have read that any trailer tire is only rated for 10K miles.

Hey, Harleybass47: What part of the state did you go to back there, if you don't mind me asking?

We had three on our Weekend Warrior when we bought it used. I figured since one had already blown I changed them out with maxxis and went up a load range. We've already taken them to Ark. and back so good so far. The manufactures just put on tires enough to get them off the lot and barely heavy enough.
