I have the Carlisle Radial Trail RH tires. They've been great over the last 4 years and a lot of miles. No issues at all and good wear.


2 years ago I had one RH (not HD) lose the tread on the way north to a campsite. Very small amount of damage. On the way back on the same trip another one lost 3/4 of the tread with 1/4 slapping and blowing a hole in the bottom of my trailer. All 4 tires were only 4 years old and less than 7000 miles. Both that came apart still had 80 psi in them....LRE tires. After inspection, the last 2 were also showing separation and Carlisle did nothing about any of it. Will never deal with that company again.
Of course Im only complaining because I had a negative experience.
Ordered GY endurance and no issues after 2 years and 5000 miles.

I have the Carlisle Radial Trail HD on my travel trailer going on 2 years, no issues or complaints. I balanced them and they all took 1.25 oz or less to balance, which is great for trailer tires.
They tow smooth and are wearing like iron!
I will admit, some of Carlisle's older trailer tires were less than reliable, but this new design is one of the top trailer tires on the market.

I have had mine for almost 2 years and they have about 6 or 7K on them.

They are black and round and to tell the truth for over 40 years with all sorts of cheap tires I've only had one tire blow up and that was from under inflation from a nail.

My only complaint is the tread is very low when brand new. They do really make up for it by wearing really good.

The biggest problem with ST tires is the RV manufacturers who, in the interest of saving a buck, install low quality tires of barely adequate load range and speed rating on their trailers. Then you get someone who loads heavy and runs with too-low pressure and too fast for the speed rating, and there you go. Tires fail, and everyone blames it on the source country.

Buy quality brand name tires from a reputable dealer, and you should be good to go.

Coming from the commercial side our tire threads never mention years of service but miles of service like 25k for ST tires......50k for LT tires..... or 75k for some haulers using commercial grade steel ply carcass ST or LT tires. In this type of work our tires never time out but actually wear out
Some haulers can wear out two sets a year.
2-3 Years of service or 2-3 years on the market or what one trailer owners experience with a couple of rv trailers doesn't tell all the service life story for a tire for all trailer types.

The Carlisle HD and the Endurance are from our oldest ST tire makers. Both have made some crappy ST tires in the past. To their credit they did improve them every several years.
Miles and years of service are building in their newest efforts and so far both are a vast improvement over the ones their replacing.

Are the Carlisle Radial Trail HD tires made in USA? Are these the Carlisle trailer tires that a lot of folks seem to like?


The plant code "AQ" found on Carlisle ST tires identifies them as being made by Carlisle tire & wheel Co. LTD at Meixian, Guangdong, China.
