New Tire Time

My unit is a 2013 Hill Country HCT32RL. Have only had it on 8-10 trips, but the tires are at the 5-6 year mark, still fully treaded, but I'm sure dry rot is in the works. What does everyone recommend for tire replacement ? Would prefer to stay with a name brand (Michelin, Goodyear, etc)

Any comments ?

Goodyear Endurance, much improved over the Marathons and the only ST tire made in USA. Also has a higher speed rating.

X3 on the Goodyear Endurance. Put a set on mine last fall and also put a new one on the spare. If you think it’s time for new tires then it probably is. Always trust your gut.

I agree with others. From my research, I believe the Goodyear Endurance is a better than average tire. I did put Sam's Red Ball on my last TT and have had good luck for the three years I have towed it. I have taken it from IL to WDW, FL two times, no problem. That said, I believe Endurance is a better tire. I like the speed rating for Endurance too, since sometimes you need to go a little faster to pass or whatever.

X6 on the Goodyear’s. I replaced my china bombs with the endurance and love them. Great piece of mind with the higher speed raiting and i went up to the next load range (had C’a stock went up to D’s) just so i was not running so close to the max limits on the tires. I think the trailer pulls better with them too but could just be my imagination.

X7 on Endurance, We replaced China's last year. Old moto was ''be prepared'' cause you never knew what direction the trailer wanted to drive the truck. NOW ''enjoy the scenery'' as you basically have to look in the mirror to make sure the trailers still attached. Night and day difference and absolutely love them..

X8 on the Goodyear Endurance. I replaced all 5 at the beginning of last year. Very pleased with them. Check with Goodyear for sales and rebates. I got mine from Discount Tire Direct with rebate and free delivery and had a local shop balance and install them.
