At quantity is it "sufficient" for people to star howling?

These have been on the market a few years now. (2 or 3 I think).

Northwood and ORV are using them as OEM tires.

It took Maxxis ST tire 3-5 years before issues started showing up around the rv and non rv trailering industry.
Using them for a couple of years or one long trip doesn't tell us much.
This is true.

The people here tend to chase after the latest new tire. Those of us that have been arouna long time and paid attention have seen this movie many times. Each time the Marathon changed its country of manfacture, everyone rushed out to get it. Whenever Carlise made a change to its tire, the same thing. Maxxis was the last one.... Until the Endurance.

It seems that the ST crowd HAS recognized that there is an issue with ST tires (privately) or they would not keep chasing the latest one on the market.
Maybe this is finally the one..... Maybe not.

From my perspective, Maxxis Tires were good at first. It was my third set before they started having issues.

The same could happen to the GY's but they've been out for about 4 years and so far, so good. I hope my next set is as good.

The Endurance came out 3 years ago.
From Goodyear website; (paste and copy)

*** New Endurance features Durawall Technology
AKRON, Ohio, January 30, 2017 – For years, hobbyists who tow boats, jet skis and snowmobiles to recreational destinations have asked for an American-manufactured trailer tire to help carry their cargo with confidence.***

Thanks everyone for your feedback. It looks like the Goodyear Endurance is performing well so far. So I going to put them on the my travel trailer.


Be sure the tire shop balances them.

I have had 3 sets of Maxxis. No problems at all. I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.

If you balance them.... Be sure you have them use a lug plate. Otherwise it is a waste of time and money.

Lug plate or not IMO balancing trailer tires is a waste of $$$ in general. [emoticon] However, it's your $$$ so do with it what you want [emoticon]

Unless you use shims in the wheel hub pilot to center the wheel on the axle before tightening the lug nuts, you will never center that wheel on the axle with any consistency. The first two or three lug nuts you mate to the conical wheel seats will shift that wheel off axis if you don't use shims which is a HUGH and TEDIOUS procedure and having balancing wts already on the wheel can potentially make the wheel even more UNBALANCED on the axle than if the wheel had not been balanced on a machine using a lug plate.

That is not the problem.
The problem is that the so called pilot center hole is not necessairily perfectley centered on most trailer wheels. They are just stamped out. They are not meant to be centered on the hub by the pilot hole. They are called Lug centric, for a reason. The lugs center them. Now a lot of autos use hub centric rims. Those can be balanced using the center hole when balancing.
