Default New Goodyear Trailer tire

If you haven't seen this yet, it looks like Goodyear is now making tires in the US again with a new model trailer tire called the Endurance. For many of us who had to endure the pain if the non-US made Marathons and other brands, this looks to be a potential winner. They are making in in a load range D for 14" tires and up. Maybe all the bad press has finally forced them to improve.

After I posted this a couple of weeks ago, I sent them a request for more detailed information, but never got a response.

Glad to see they've added it to their site.

awesome....I like the fact that its a load range D and made in US. Hopefully it will be better than the marathons from China. Nice to see a D tire in a 14".

Great to see more load capacity. Maybe more important, I read multiple reviews that the entire Endurance line of RV tires are speed rated @ N (87mph). I found no verification of speed rating on the Goodyear web page so buyers should validate before buying. I will never buy a 65 mph speed rated "bomb" ever again!

Actually Goodyear's own website does show the speed rating as N.
Click on " Endurance Trailer " it brings up the size and spec chart. They all show N under the "service description" column (Load index/Speed rating, ie 105N, 108N,etc)

Unfortunately no 13" sizes available. But most of the Marathons are now L rated at 75MPH.

Carlisle now has a seemingly well reviewed and reliable M rated 81mph tire in their Radial Trail RH and HD models. Just put new 13" HDs on mine last month.

Put a set of the Goodyear Endurance ( ST215/75R14) on this past weekend.

Headed to Port Clinton from Pittsburgh on Thursday. I'll Post a first Trip review when I get back.

One things for sure...If you buy them now, they haven't been sitting around in a warehouse. 0117
