Hello Everyone,

 

Our Casita came with these tires:

 

Goodyear Marathon ST 225 75R15  Load Range D (65 psi cold).

 

I went to a local tire shop to get a replacement tire. They said that they didn't have the above tire but could sell me a comparable tire, What they sold me is:

 

Carlisle Radial Trail HD ST 225 75R15 Load Range E (80 psi cold).

 

Some of the Casita documentation seems to indicate that this new tire may actually not be suitable for the Casita.

 

Does anyone have an opinion as to whether or not I should return the Carlisle tire?

 

Thanks Very Much,

Mike Poulin

Houston

I have that same tire on our FD17 and am quite pleased with them.  I do not run them inflated to 80psi, that's not necessary for the weight of the trailer and can make a harsh ride for the trailer.  They have three years and over 30K miles and show no wear.  I will probably swap them out next year.

 

I've never heard of the E rated Carlisle being a problem on a Casita.

 

The subject of tires, brands, inflation, age, speed, etc is the one topic guaranteed to generate more opinions than politics.
