New tires

Im thinking about getting new tires for my camper and I am looking to get D load range to replace my C load range. Thought it would help w/ my tires when back into a site since my current tires have some flex while backing into a site. Just wanted to get other peoples opinion if the D range is worth it and what tire brands to avoid?

Avoid any tire made in China. I just put on a new set of Goodyear Endurance, made in USA

Goodyear Endurance eems to be a popular tire for RV trailers right now because their 10 ply and also have a heavier side wall to protect from curbing. Just ordered a set also and getting them put on tomorrow. Here’s how Goodyear describes the tire. “The Goodyear Endurance is a durable trailer tire that provides towing stability, heat resistance, and high load carrying capacity for trailers, toy haulers, and RVs. It features a tough internal construction and specialized inner liner for load stability and resistance to air loss. The hardworking Goodyear Endurance has Durawall® technology for resistance to cuts and punctures. Whether it’s for work or play, the Goodyear Endurance trailer tire is designed so you can tow with confidence.“

If you go on Goodyear’s website you can save quite a bit on these tires.

New Tires

Just put Goodyear Endurance on our Crusier Aire. The original E rated tires three of four failed at 8000 miles. Couldn't get Maxxis at this time so I put on D rated Towstar. One just blew causing trailer damage. This was on an empty trailer cool day nine miles from home. The tire had 10,500 miles on it over two years never overloaded, kept at 80PSI and not towed over 65MPH.

Gracie so sorry for the trailer damage. I also posted on this next statement under;“Tire warning “. So I was going to order my Goodyear Endurance tires through Goodyear but my local tire shop ordered five (Including spare), took my Castle rocks off and put on all five Goodyear’s and balanced for $625 out the door.

X2 on direct purchasing from Goodyear. Currently running promos for 15% off tires. I've posted this elsewhere on the forum.

I was going to order through Goodyear but I had to pick a Goodyear dealer on the list (For free shipping) to send them to have installed which was 45 minutes from where I live. I could’ve got them $40.75 Cheeper by going through Goodyear but the hassle of driving 45 minutes each way wasn’t worth that for me and the cost of gas in my 2500.

I see that Sams club can get them for about$120 per tire (225/75/15E).

This may be the route I take in the future.
