I'm in need of new tires, leaning towards goodyear endurance, but spendy. Also considered carlisle and maxxis. Just wondering why I never hear anyone or read any article about firestone st tires. Any idea why? And what's your opinion on LT tires on a fiver that's only used here and there a few days at a time. They say, opinions are like belly buttons, everybody has one, right or wrong. What yours.

OVER 2.5 years on the market with stellar reviews and no failures that I have seen mentioned.

Go to Discount Tire, they have good pricing.

GY ENDURANCE are TOP Quality and US Made.

Run 75mph if you choose also!

I have heard good things about the Endurance tires, too. Sizes are limited. What size are you looking for. That will help others with suggestions and experiences with different brands. I have 17.5 Goodyear G114. Great tires but very expensive. When I replace I'm going with Sailuns.

Many brands of 5th wheels were built with LT tires and did well. My NUWA is an example. The axle rating matched the tires which were Uniroyals when the trailer was built in '04. I changed them in '12 with Michelin LTXs. All of them have done well without issues except for 1 Michelin that was replaced due to a puncture that could not be repaired. My axle weights are under the max rating. We travel 5-8000 miles a year. As long as the tire meets or exceeds the axle rating there are many good LT tires that will work at a reasonable cost, IMO.

Just put Goodyear Endurance tires on my fifth wheel. Had a blow out on the three year old original tires with about 4000 miles on them.

It was between Maxxis and the Goodyear. I have had Maxxis in the past and was very happy with them. However the Goodyear Endurance had two extra things going for them. Higher speed rating and stronger side walls. Even being a newer tire only a few years on the market, they have been getting good reviews.

My tires are ST225/75R 15, I replaced all five including the spare. I paid $775 at Tires Plus. The same five tires at Discount Tire would have been $739. The discount tire is 65 miles round trip for me so I bought at Tires Plus. The dollar amount for both places was the out the door price tires, mounting & balance, taxes etc

I had Firestone OEM on a new 1975 Olds Cutlass Salon. Two blow outs on the Atchafalaya Swamp bridge on I-10. No more Firestones. I think that is when they went broke and Bridgestone bought them.

I never had the new Goodyear Endurance, but my Maxxis were great and currently everything (boat, 5th, utility trailer) has the new Carlisle. No issues.
