I had the "E" GY Wranglers n my Avion Platinum. I was running on the edge so I upped to GY "G" and ran at 85psi with perfect tread wear for thousands of miles.

I've had some Bridgestone Duravis R500HD's o mine in LT215/85R16 since the summer of 2018, they've covered approx. 38000km's to date and still look pretty much like new. They haven't shown any signs of drying out, no cracks and up to date i couldn't be any happier with them.

I installed the r 250 bridgestone back in 2013 on my 5ver and have been nothing but stellar. I know some will say they have exceeded there life span but they still look very good. if i replace it would have to be r 500,s not sure they make r 250 anymore. i hate to spend 240.00 if i sell my unit in a couple years. other choices lt 245 75 r 16

Replaced my R250 because they were 8 years old. R250 no longer available but Bridgestone replace them with R238, all steel body ply as the R250 was.

Follow up, just returned from Phoenix AZ put about 850 miles on new bridgestone r500 hd tires. (LT235-85-R16)They rode great I could not tell any differance or ruffness. It gave me great peace of mind not thinking about the Carlisle ST tires blowing out. I sold the Carlisle tires just about paid for my new spare tire. So far Im happy I bought the bridgestone.

I've got Michelin XPS Ribs on my front axle and Bridgestone Duravis R250's on the rear axle.
Heaviest tires I could find in the 235 size.
So far so good except for a nail in a XPS Rib (thanks expensive Illinois Tollway Tollbooth entry ramp) and losing a WHEEL with tire on a freeway in AL (just the spindle and some brake parts left!)!
My experiment in durability continues....

I pulled the China bombs off my TT after 2 years and 5,000 miles. Dealer said it's a good thing I did, the valve stems were badly cracked. GY Endurance seem to ride better.

Good call on the ENDURANCE Tires!

They have been on the market now for four years, several said 3 years was not enough time to be a proven tire. Wonder what they say now as I have not seen one non road hazard reported.
