I have long been a fan for an all steel ply trailer tires. Which provide low rolling resistance, and lots of strength in the carcass.

You have however have down talked them over the years. Why the change in heart now?


I've always disapproved their misapplications. There is a difference.

The way the tire industry works, a vehicle manufacturer usually requests a specific designated size. I'm sure whoever requested that specific tire already made plans to fit it to their vehicles. Others will follow suit. I'd look at RV trailer manufacturers using OEM Greenball tires.

I had Bridgestone 250's on my previous 5th wheel, (30'), and would not hesitate to buy another set for my new unit. I had Goodyear Marathon's, made in China, that came with the unit new before the 250's and had no issues with them after 5 years of use. Rarely had to adjust pressure on the 250's. I would recommend good metal valve stems with a new set of any tires and also a good TPM system for peace of mind.

Talking to my neighbor and he asked about tires. Finally he said I was scaring him and I said good. Now after we walked to his TT to see what tires he had I was shocked. Good year Endurance E rated tires. Jayco has done what I was not expecting.

The Endurance was introduced with a GY ad saying that Jayco was moving to this new tire exclusively a couple years ago. Chris
