And no Carlisle tires have not gotten better. I know from experience.

Carlisle makes about four different line of ST tires. So which line did you have issues with.
Carlisle deservedly had a bad rap for shoddy cheap tires several years back but like Goodyear their newest line was a big improvement. Thanks

I just replaced my 6 year old trailer kings with carlisle radial trail HD they look to be a well made tire. I have read that they are better than they used to be. We buy them at work for our trailers and have not had an issue with them. I just installed them today and have not driven any where on them but they are D rated instead of my old tires which were C. I was looking at the Goodyear tires but did not want to spend the extra 30+ per tire but now I wish I would have.

Goodyears or use truck tires that are made in USA. My choice is Goodyears.

Ditto. I have two sets of Goodyear Endurance tires.

Here's a comparison video I did when I installed them on my 20' cargo trailer.

Another video when I installed a set on a smaller cargo trailer.

I don't suppose Michelin's would fit but I like my XPS ribs. Someday hope to go camping again.

While not wanting to get into a debate about North American versus China manufactured tires, I just want to comment that while travelling in Utah in 2012 We had to purchase 2 new tires for our unit. We were in a very small town and the tire place offered us 2 Crosswind Tires (made by LingLong in Thailand) The tires were L780 12 ply and again while I understand the many things that affect tire life longevity they are still on the trailer some 15000 plus miles later and still running well. No endorsement just a comment. Good luck with your tire search. The Crosswinds are paired with 2 Maxxis which are also performing well.

Google "Goodyear Marathon Failure" and you'll find out while I'll never buy another Goodyear product.

I bought a set of Goodyear's a few years back. They pulled hard to the left so I got rid of them.

I also say thumbs up to Maxxis tires. Had a set for seven years on a utility trailer and they held up great. Seems Carlisle and other companies keep getting burned trying to outsource tires to China in order to hit a lower price point. Had same problem on John Deere diesel garden tractor, front Chinese Carlisles wore out in five years, rears made in USA looked like new. I would trust South Korean tires btw, they seem to set high standards, unlike Chinese tires where you just have to get lucky to get a good tire.

Tires are such an important safety item, this is where it seems to make sense to buy the very best you can find. Thankfully Tirerack.com is becoming more active here and offering some alternatives.
