My 2018 Jayco Talon came with the Goodyear Endurance ties in 255/85/16. We use our TH for our sons racing which spans from Fla-NY about 10 months a year. I'd estimate we have approx. 25-30K miles on these tires.

Generally, the wear is even on them although one has developed a flat spot and one seems slightly out of round. All four are down to the wear marks and starting to show very slight cracking.

I'd say these are loaded on average at 75% capacity and always aired to max psi. Rotated a couple times a year maybe.

I'll be replacing them very soon with another set of the same as I've been pleased with these, considering the milage I've put on them. With the average user not putting this much milage on camper tires I would highly recommend these.

Not to be too critical, but if I only got about 25,000 miles out of my tires I don't think I'd buy more of the same. Especially if I had one that developed a flat spot, one slightly out of round, and one starting to crack.

Would you be happy with tires like that on your car? I certainly wouldn't.

I put the Endurance on my 5th wheel in June of last year and have close to 18,000 miles on them. They are wearing fairly evenly and expect I'll get about 25,000 miles from them. The biggest negative about them is that they start out with only 1/4" deep tread.

"Flat spot" Why is that? UH maybe a brake sticks in one spot???

"seems slightly out of round" Why is that? Have you jacked it up to see if it actually is?

So 25-30k per set, where are the failures?

I was also going to comment about the mileage, until I looked at mine. Finishing my 2nd year with them, likely have around 15,000 miles on them. I run around 75% of weight capacity, never rotated, and I would estimate I am at about 50% tread ware remaining.

Personally, I am happy with them. Really improved the handling of the boat trailer. When mine are worn out, another set will be going back on the trailer.

The OP uses the trailer a lot of miles per year very unlike most camping trailers and can get 25k miles out of a set which is about normal for ST class tires as they have only around 8 or 9/32" of tread depth.

If he would go with good recommended LT tire with enough load capacity he could expect 50k-60k miles a set which is about what we get out of a LT tire on our commercial road trailers which can have a 15 to 16/32" of tread depth.

In the hauling business... or folks that wear tires out on their trailers in a couple of years it will pay to dump any brand ST tire and go with a good recommended LT tire.

Flat spot across the tread most likely is from a brake lockup which can happen even to a commercial grade all steel ply carcass tire like the Bridgestone R-238 LT tire.

I would say Goodyear has a winner with the new Endurance. The Endurance like any ST load E/D/C work better for rv folks whose trailers sits much of the year and times out before wearing out.

I would be concerned about the slight cracking. With that many miles on them, they have not been sitting long enough to dry rot, and they are only 3 years old. Should not be cracking.

My long term review of the Goodyear Wrangler HT LT tires after seven years and about 30,000 miles is this:

Very little wear, could easily go over 50,000 miles.
No flat spots.
No out of round.
No bumps.
No cracking.

No way I'd go with those again if I were you OP.

Yesterday I just replaced all 4 of my duals which were Goodyear Wrangler HT's (came on MH from factory). Those had nearly 32k on them & still had I'd say 45-50% tread left on them but were 5 years old & starting to crack.

I replaced the above with 4 Cooper Discoverer HTs. We can get really fresh Coopers around here now, I've had great luck with Coopers on my 4x4, & the Goodyears weren't readily avail (not that I'd have issue with running them in the future).

Well folks we have it. GY ENDURANCE at 2.5 years was not long enough time to be considered as a good tire. BUT NOW at 2 years 7 months its officially a “WINNER”
