Tires for travel trailer

Looking to replace the Goodyear Marathron ST225/75R15 that were original equipment on our 2015 Outdoor RV Timber Ridge 27 travel trailer.  We have about 25,000 miles on these tires. The date code is 3313, so the tires are at least 6.5 years old. Have not experienced any issues with these tires.  Have had the same brand of tires on other RV's that we've previously owned, again with no issues. My travel speed is btwn 55 - 65 mph; rarely over that.  We are fulltimers, so we rack up the miles.

I'm looking for recommendations, good and bad experiences with RV tires.

I currently have the Goodyear Endurance ST225/75R/15 load range E on a 10,000# trailer. About 6000 miles in 6 months and so far so good except picked up a nail in the sidewall of one in Taos, NM. Trailer tires can sometimes be a little difficult to replace on the road. The major tire discount store wanted a week to get a replacement Endurance. I was able to get a replacement at a local mom and pop tire shop delivered and installed the next day at a price slightly less than what I paid per tire at original purchase and considerably less than what the discount store wanted.

In the past, I have had good service from Carlyle HD radial trail and Maxxis M8008 tires. Never had to replace one on the road, so do not know about availability. Neither are manufactured in the USA, but both had good reputations the last time I shopped for tires. The Carlyle and Goodyer Endurance have higher speed ratings than most ST tires which are rated at 65MPH.

You have a very popular tire size. All of the ST tire manufacturers here and over there build that tire in four different load ranges, LRC, LRD, LRE & LRF. At the very minimum, pick the load range that matches your OE tires. Narrowing it down to a brand will depend on your personal research of each considered.

 

Note: All of the LRF tires will be steel cased.
