They don’t get reviews. Haha.

I know endurance tires are hard to get right now. I have a bent axle on my trailer and one tire wears out at around 8-10k miles. It’s time to replace it again and my wholesaler is out of the 205/75-14 ST endurance. I’m pushing my luck on the one tire right now.

I might have a Hercules tire too, before long. Haha

Ok I stand sorta corrected. Like I said I couldn't find the Endurance tires I wanted. I want to go fishing this fall. I don't tow half way across the state to go fishing. The tire should be just fine for me.

If you could find me a brand new set of 4 Endurance tires in the metromess, I would return the ones I have .

That's tires to be installed tomorrow.

Besides most of those reviews where for passenger tires, not trailer tires. Did you read the review form the tire dealer. Most tire failures are from improper application or poor maintenance of equipment the tires are installed on.

Plus they have to be better then the Freaking Marathons I had.

I'm towing the boat to Sanger tomorrow @ 70 miles an hour.

If the tires are that bad, then I guess I should be ready for a blow out. I have a tire iron, jack and spare.

I ain't skerd.

If the tires haven't been installed yet consider Carlisle Radial HD's. Put over 20k miles on them in less then 3 years including lots of towing on the highway. Only replaced them because the date stamp was over 6 years old. Went with the same for replacements and already have over 3k on them.

Nope Staying with the tires installed. They were cheap. I'm just an old fart set in his ways.I guess you guys needed to point out what a bad mistake I may have made. I'll live with it..

Just wanted to post that I got a set of tires for my trailer and what brand. At least I didn't recommend them to anyone else or I would have really been raked over the coals.

I really don't do much fishing anymore. My health will not let me fish in this heat so I will have to wait for the fall to fish.

The tires will probably dry rot before they blow. I hope.

Sorry, thanks for the tire recommendation.

You can and to eliminate the problem you need to get a new receiver with more drop so the trailer sits level. Rear tires wear faster if trailer sits high in the front.

I went 15-years with one or more blowouts every year, using ST trailer tires. They do not make a low profile 15" truck tire, but they do make them in 16". No 15" wheel/tire combo would fit my trailer, but a 16" combo will. Over 5-years ago I went from 14" wheels to 16" wheels and Goodrich All-Terrain T/A® KO2. I did have to adjust my fenders. I drive 75 to 80 and have not had one blowout. Trailer tires are a joke, they even say on them for trailer use only. In other words not good enough to use on cars or trucks. Could you imagine the uproar if truck tires had all the blowouts that trailer tires experience. Another issue with trailer tires, they can be hard to find in stock when you need one. Everyone has 16" low-profile truck tires in stock, it may not be the one you want, but in an emergency at least you can get one.

RAMM, did you have any problem finding the larger wheels that would fit your bolt pattern? I'm looking at doing the same thing.
