I'm on my second set of the Carisle HD with no complaints. I do really like the higher speed rating.

You can buy the new Carlisle Radial Trail with confidence as it's a quality tire. I haven't read much anything negative on the new ones.

Yes, the older Carlisles got a bad rap years ago but the new ones are holding up well, getting good reviews, and have a big following. It's a completely redesigned tire designed to last. Too soon to tell but I've had mine going on 2 years and they're holding up fine.

BTW, the best price I found on them was walmart.com, which I took to America's Tire (Discount Tire) and they beat the price by a couple bucks.

The Goodyear Endurance has a good reputation too but I have no experience with them.

I have the Carlisle Radial Trail RH tires. They've been great over the last 4 years and a lot of miles. No issues at all and good wear.

I got seven years out of a set of radial Carlisles back in the ‘90’s. I run bias ply Carlisles on my boat trailer. Based on my own experience with them, I wouldn’t hesitate to buy them again.

mileshuff, I certainly understand your lack of confidence in the Carlisle company for not standing behind their tires in your incident. I wouldn't buy another Carlisle tire from them either. I bought a new hybrid that came with the poor quality Carlisles. I had no dealer to complain to. I went through the steps. I filed a claim with the NHTSA explaining what happened. I sent a letter to Carlisle telling my story, including a picture and copies of my weight tickets. I was not overloaded, it was cool outside and I was not speeding. I also included a copy of the receipt I had for 5 new tires. They responded quickly and included a check to cover my expenses.

Yes, they were bad tires. No, they are not still bad. This argument could be used on the new Goodyear Endurance tires. The Marathons had more than their fare share of issues. From everything I have heard the Endurance is a better tire. My Marathons had all sorts of trouble and showed that two had belts separating. This was after only 3 years and very few miles, like less than 3 thousand.

Sorry that you had to live through what I did. But, the OP asked about the new Carlisles and I will stand behind my original response. They are pretty good tires. Buy them from a reputable dealer who will stand behind them and you should be good to go.

When Carlye's first came on the scene, they were the worse tires ever made. Just like Hyundia's and Kia's, things change over time.

Excellent tire. Discount Tire stands behind them. I've had them on my last two trailers and never had a problem. Even rated at 82 mph (I think).
