I gave up on trailer tires on my car hauler. I am right at 10,000#s. I went from 15" tires to 16" tires and run BGF Commercial LTs. I've been running them for about 10 years and gone through a few sets due to age but haven't had a failure yet.

|The Evil Twin||Interesting. The Providers have a pretty good reputation. On my second set.|

|packratt||I run Maxxis load range E with good luck on my car/equipment trailer and it gets loaded heavy most of the time. I will check out the Goodyear Endurance.|

It baffles me what camper manufacturers are allowed to put in there for axles, brakes, leaf springs, and tires. When we were shopping, every single one we looked at were way under-sized. Meaning if your camper dry weight was 6,000lb, they would size the axles and tire load ratings for just barely above that dry weight. Once you load up 1,000lb of gear and 500lb in water, even though you were under the GVWR of the trailer, you were over the tire and axle ratings. How the hell is that freaking legal? They should be mandated by law to size to a GVWR of the trailer at a minimum.
But most trailer purchasers don't even look at those numbers. Luckily we found a trailer that had already had the axle flip done, and the axles were sized to just above the GVWR. Tires were still underrated, so a new set of wheels and tires were the first thing done. Now after 4 years my leaf springs are flat, cause those are freaking under weight rated...time for bigger rated leaf springs in the spring. I wish trailer manufacturers had to go through the same safety mandates as auto manufacturers. Way too dangerous.

I have ran Carlisle tires (made in china) on equipment, flatbed,5th wheel, and currently a tandem utility axel trailer with good results. I typical always went with their E-rated ones just in case and have zero blow outs, tread issues, bubbles, flat spots etc. Now I will say you gotta get the right speed rates though. I got some 65mph rated tires on accident and above 65 I got some vibration but nothing to be scared about etc.
I have actually had some crazy experiences with name brand and Chinese tires lol...
I had some off brand china tires work very well on on beater car and some vibrate like crazy at 55+mph despite re-balance, rotate on wheel etc. Then I've had some Kumho tires explode after 20k miles (you'll see from many of my threads im a more ocd maintenance guy with my vehicles, equipment, and trailers etc. Tire pressure checked regularly, fluid filters, maintenance logs and the works etc.
I've seen people rant and rave their pure hatred for BFG tires yet I run them on my trucks almost exclusively lol. Same for off brand china tires lol.
It sucks not knowing if you are going to get a good tire. there is a crazy thread for a forum regular here about a crazy experience with Cooper tires in a bad way too.
