"As I have mentioned before. I have blown 3 trailer tires. They were all aired properly. They were all properly maintained. ( I blew 1 more , but it wasn't mine can't say how it was maintained) They all had had serious tread separation. AND they were all in their 4th (fourth) summer. Having had to change 3. 4 year old tires on the side of the highway. I will never run 4 year old tire again on a trailer again. Trailer tires age differently than car, or truck tires."

Well, if I worked with that theory, I'd be changing tires at 2 years, because the properly maintained ST tires blew at less than 2 years old. [emoticon]

Then again, perhaps if you had been using LT tires instead of ST tires they would have lasted longer than 4 years. My 6 year old LT tires show absolutely no signs of weathering or dry rot. Being built better is a definite plus.

My 5er came with LT tires when I bought it new, way back in 2003. I've had two tread separations on that trailer over the years. I am good about checking the air pressure and the tires themselves before I go anywhere. I don't think I hit anything that would have caused that separation. I always buy name brand tires, and they were certainly less than 7 years old.

So LT tires are not immune to tread separation.

Because of that, the tires on my 5er are also on a 4-5 year life period. They get sold on Craigslist with pretty much new tread at that time.

My Coastline boat trailer came with Rainier tires that just got replaced Thursday because the tread was about gone at 3.5 years. Replaced them with Maxxis M8008 C tires yesterday from Discount tire. As for our camper they will get replaced with Goodyear Endurance tires early next year (spring). I've replaced tires at 4 years or sooner and never had a blowout to date.

Wondering. Can you get 14" LT tires, and do they lube themselves sitting still????. That is what causes them to rot.

Why yes, amazingly enough you can get 14" LT tires. If you let your tires sit long enough for them to rot, maybe you should consider taking up another hobby. I do use mine occasionally and have no issues with rot.

And of course, YMMV.

GY does not advertise their Endurance trailer tires as mileage tires. Like all other ST tires they are wear-out tires. To get in excess of 25K from any ST tire requires some excellent management practices.

To replace the OPs GY tires with another design such as a low platform truck tire, would, in all probability require 17'5" diameter tires. And, they would be smaller in profile than the current tires. For high mileage users the switch might be beneficial because the more robust truck tires would probably double in expected mileage before wear-out. However, the size and inflation pressures will provide a more harsh ride for the trailer's internal cargo. I'd talk to a tire knowledgeable employee of the vehicle manufacturer about the pros/cons of such a swap in size and design.


Curious about that statement, you are saying I won't get 25K out out of my Sailun tires on my fifth wheel, they are also ST .Trip to Alaska next summer , it will be a minimum of 10k miles, will report back on the wear. They are two, and half years old around 8K on them .

Curious why not ENDURANCE for the boat trailer? Two years on my Boat trailer with lots of miles and lots of 70mph driving.

Anyone have any personal or hearsay reports of Goodyear Endurance tires failing catastrophically?

My trailer wore the inside edges of the tires to where they was no more tread and with torsion bar spring axles there's no way that I know of to adjust for the negative camber, so it didn't make sense to go with a more expensive tire. If these Maxxis' go longer then maybe a better quality tire will last longer therefore the Endurance could be an option for me.
