Before you all jump on me abut inflation and weight, etc. I always check my tires and make sure they are aired up to 95 lbs (as called for)...Well, this weekend, one of my Chinese tire bombs blew on me on the way home from a trip. The tires are 235 85 R 16. I am looking at the Endurance. Weird thing is that the OEM tires say load range F and Endurance are E. When I look at inflation rates per Goodyear, they say I can hit the same rating by airing up to 95 lbs or 100 even though tires say 80lbs. So are people still happy with Endurance? My only requirement is tires made in North America, preferably the USA.

Very few trailer tires are actually made in the US any more. I'm a big fan of Sailun S637s (have put them on both our previous fiver and current). They are a load range G tire and are one of the favorite tires with full-timers on this and other forums. Their all-position commercial tires are used on a lot of 18-wheelers. Search this forum and you'll find a lot of posts on both the Sailuns and the Endurance tires.

How old were the so-called “Chinese bombs?” How many miles? Covered from direct sunlight when in storage? You are positive no road hazard or debris caused the failure? Tire previously damaged by going into or off a curb? Other three tires still in service?

F load range = 95 psi
G load range = 110 psi.
Most likely your wheels are 110 psi rated and can use the 110 psi if needed. Best to find out though...you sure don't want to over pressure a wheel. I've seen load F tires on my equipment trailers go to 104-106 psi at interstate speeds and carrying a load.
The Endurance has been out for over 3 years now and so far there has been very few complaints ...like in tread separation.
If it matters they have only 8/32nds of tread depth which means 1/4" of usable tread depth. Its a poly carcass tire and good for maybe 18k-22k miles before time for replacement.

Now if your the type of rv trailer owner who expects 40k-60k miles in a 7-8 year period then the commercial grade all steel ply carcass Sailun S637 ST235/80-16 G at 4080 lbs capacity is at the top in this class tire.

Check out prices on the internet for each and figure how often you will need replacements.

I looked and my rims say 110 lbs. 18-22k miles will be more than I need. I would probably replace in the 5-6 year mark and the endurance, although saying 80 lbs of air and an E rating, will go to the 3960 mark with 95 lbs and 4400 lbs with 110 lbs of air.

I’m thinking you are reading something wrong. Give GY a call.

ENDURANCE is USMade with over a three year stellar record.

Understand load ratings. G rated tires are what I finally put on my 5th wheel trailer after a couple of blowouts.

Just bought the endurance tires. Read the specs on the weight rating and your should be good. Mine are 3,400 a tire, which times 4 adds up to the gvrw of my fifth wheel..

You grossly over inflated your tires. Do not inflate to the max of the tire as you are not pulling max weight trailer. If you pulled 26,000 lbs. then inflate to 120. A G tire with a 12,000 trailer only needs 80 to 85 lbs., not 120.

Now all the expert tire people, who cannot use a cell phone, will give you advice.
