RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

https://i.imgur.com/niAS9Kql.jpg Hi guys, here are my new Endurances. Manufactured on 26th week of 2020. About 3 months ago.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

I thought I could get away with my 7 year old Marathon tires this year as well. Found out that I couldn't. 2 of the 4 had major bulges and had to be removed on the spot. One blew on a trip, but I can blame that on the shackels braking and not the tire. But, the point is, and everyone on here will tell you, 7 years is too long for a trailer tire. Where are your 2 bad tires located? The one failed on mine is at the right front side and the diagonally opposing one also showed signs of belt separation. The other 2 still looks good with a bit of tread left. Everyone here is talking about replacing trailer tires every 7 years. My last set of Marathon still looked good after 19 years when I sold off my last TT as a reclamation project. These Marathon were made in Canada in the '90 though. We didn't travel enough to wear them down to get new tires. We keep the pressure up on every trip, park at home out of the sun and keep an close eye on them for dry rot or uneven wear pattern.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

The price I was quoted was CA$938 for 4 including 12% sales tax, installation, $20 Environment Levy but no wheel balancing. (That's another topic for another day). With today's 1.33 exchange rate, it works out to US$ 175 per tire out of the door. Tire Rack listed $133 each which works out to within a few $ of local list price. Besides, buying online & ship across to border is not economical. A lot of online merchandises get free shipping in the states will cost an arm and a leg shipping across the border. I was to hold off until next season that we can travel farther before I get a new set of tires. One of these barely 7 y.o. Marathon developed a slow leak from belt separation last weekend. I used the spare to get home from 100 miles away. Because we have a very nice fall weather this year, I thought we shall take advantage of the next few weekends camping. But travelling without a spare is not an option thus the new tires.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

I was told they are in stock in a local warehouse. This is Western Canada. Trailer tires could sell slower than the eastern seaboard. I will check the manufacturing date tomorrow to see how old these stocks are. After reading some of the replies above, I wouldn't be hesitated to use Carlisle HD if Endurance is not available. The same dealer sells them too.

I have looked into Amazon for pricing and found that their Canadian site does not have the best price for Carlisle.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

Thank you all for the replies! I decided to bite the bullet and ordered a set of Endurance. Locally Goodyear is only exclusive to one dealer so there's no shopping around and pay the full list price.

Carlisle is made in China, thus the cheap price. OK, that's why the price difference.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

How do the load rating compare? I already know it would be the endurance because that is what I will tow home the 8th. chevman They both are Load Range E.

Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

It's time for a new set of tires. I have narrowed down my choice between GY Endurance and Carlisle Trail HD. However, in comparing the price locally, Endurance costs 45% more than the Carlisle. For a set of 4 ST22575R15 LRE, Endurance costs CA$230 more than Carlisle HD. Is endurance that much better than Carlisle? I heard enough good things about the GY. I would like to hear from the Carlisle owners for their opinion. Thank you in advance!

Good Oyster Digging & Clamming Spots on Vancouver Island

High ferry cost has been keeping me from visiting Vancouver Island for years. With the border closing, we are going to camp on the island this summer. Oyster digging & clamming are our favorite pastimes. Would the good folks here don't mind sharing some of the good clamming beaches on the east side of the island?
