Good point.
Come back in 35k-40k miles (5 to 7 years) and gives us a report on them.

Hell we had lots of fans of the old style Carlisle radial trail.....Tow MAX.....Marathons..... others..... who made it 3k-4k miles on the first long trip.

I would say from looking at the new gen Endurance or Carlisle HD they dropped that wheel barrow rounded sidewall profile.
I would bet in 5-7 years they will be hands down better than the older gen tires they replaced for RV trailers.

I hold the record for the first Endurance failure/destroyed tire. However it was not the tires fault. Goodyear paid 50% of the cost of a replacement as a goodwill gesture.

I had to have picked this up just before pulling into our Arizona resort, as the tire was still going flat. If it had happen early in the trip, I would have never know the reason for the failure, and maybe blamed the tire.

Tires were 8 months old at the time, and had about 2000 miles of them. They now have around 4000 miles on the origin three and 2000 on the replacement. I have looked pretty closely at the truck and do not believe the bolt came from my truck, however when I go for the next recall I am going to have the dealer look under it. It is similar to my cab mount bolts, so maybe it is a Ford cab mount bolt that was not tightened correctly after a cab removal.

I recently had a blowout with my less than a year old GY Endurance. I was taking it out on a short test run for the new fan clutch I put on my truck. Pulling the trailer up a hill was the easiest way I knew to get it hot enough to engage the fan clutch. Since it was such a short run, I neglected to check the tire pressures before going. So, I blamed myself for the blowout. Turns out the pressure in the other tires were fine. It was a road hazard ... something long as it penetrated the tread and scarred the inside of the wheel. I probably drove the better part of a mile before getting off the freeway. The tire was shredded, of course. But surprisingly, the rim and trailer had no damage at all except where the hazard made contact inside the rim. AAA put on my spare, I went straight to Americas Tire and they replaced the tire for free (I had purchased road hazard insurance when I bought the tires). I did have to purchase another coupon for the new tire ($24).

Too old to head stands.Just saying after 25 plus yrs. of pulling trailers the endurance tires were the best to my liking and I have gone through some tires in that amount of time and I always change tires in 3 -5 yrs no matter if I go 400 miles or 40000 miles.
