At least someone here has decided the ENDURANCE is a credible tire now that it has made it to three full years on the market with stellar results. [emoticon]

What pressure will you be running them at?


Any advice?? I am used to using 50PSI on my old tires, but these can handle up to 65PSI. I don't need them to carry the maximum weight that they are capable of. I believe I'll be at about 75% of maximum weight.

LOL..if thats pointed at me I've always recommended the new gen Endurance when someone wanted a ST tire. What I've also said 2-3 years on the market does not tell us how the tires service life will be.
The Maxxis at first was touted as the holy grail and was the go to tire for trailers of all the C/D/E ST tires but after 3-5 years issues started popping up when their numbers on the road/miles of service increased. The Endurance may or may not follow the Maxxis but only miles of service will tell its story.

Hellz... lots of folks ran the old Marathons for just three years with no issues.

Just wanted to have some fun.

You were always quick to say 1 or 2 years on the market was not enough time to prove reliable. But since they have made it to 3 years no one seems to be questioning time on the market.

Hopefully they balanced the tires too.


Ditto on balancing.

Here's a short video I did a few years ago about trailer tire balancing.

That would be me.

Former tire engineer with a major manufacturer who tracked returns and developed algorithms to predict return rates. My experience said that after 2 years in the market, you could predict the return rate for structural failures - which peaked in the third or fourth year.

Since no one has reported a Goodyear Endurance ST tire failure in 3 years (They entered the market in the fall of 2016), my prediction is that there will not be any design failures until the tires age out. (We don't know when that will be.)

Please note: That even the best designed tire can suffer from road hazards (punctures and impacts) and those types of failures are difficult for the average person to diagnose. Ergo, people will report tire failures and blame it on the make/model tire even if the cause is not tied to the make/model. Been there, done that! That's why we examined every reported failure for root cause.

Thanks for the reply!

You actually felt the tire was credible last year. I have saved some of your comments from the past for the nay sayers! [emoticon]

It’s only a matter of time before someone picks up a nail, runs low and throws a belt or... pulls into a station and drags the hot tires over the curb unknowingly starting a belt separation. The tire victim will post numerous pictures of the fuzzy bead clinging to the rim while swearing to never buy a GY tire again.
Keep them aired up and covered when not in use. Minus road hazard, should get 5-7 years out of them if you don’t wear them out sooner.

First, structural tire failures in the winter months are almost non-existent. The last month where you might see a few is October. They start up again in May.

So, yes, I made that prediction in October of 2019 after the season was over. Nothing magical. Just the facts.

Just for my own curiosity what does your data show on the new Carlisle Radial Trial HD? I had these on the previous trailer for about a year without any issues and have not notice any failures mentioned on the forums so just wondering if these tires are better now too.
