Taskmaster Provider f385

I have been researching tires for my trailer and I know about Maxxis, GY and other popular brands. However there is little to no first hand information available on the experiences with Taskmaster Provider F385 tires. Anyone with any first hand experience with the Taskmaster Provider F385? Thanks

I just purchased 8 Carlisles and 1 Taskmaster as a spare for my trailer. I got them from Discount Tire. I didn't know anything about them, because I've never heard of them. Manager said they just started carrying Taskmaster because they quit carrying Greenball, I believe.

These tires claim a weight capacity over 4000 lbs @110 psi. That is what piqued my interest

Taskmaster Providers came on my trailer from the manufacture, but not the F385. Mine were rated for 80psi. I had them on the trailer for over a year and over 6,000 miles with no problems. I had to switch them out this last March when I upgraded to disc brakes and 17.5 rims.

Finally talked to a guy that has been running this tire. He has had no issues and said that he would buy them again. Also talked to Discount Tire again today and confirmed the specs: 14 ply, G rated to 4080 lbs @ 110 psi. I won't be anywhere near max load on these.

This is worth serious consideration. Made appointment. They go on next week. And yes, I confirmed my rims are 110 psi rated

Those tires are coming on the new Keystone campers with the G tire Upgrade. I saw several new units at Tom Johnson Camping with them as factory tires. Post up in the future as to how they run, and if the tread surface begins to curve in about a year like my last China Bombs. I just put on a new set of Marathon tires on my 3600RS. Alpine

Don't know anything about the tire, but this is first I have heard of Discount handling the higher pressure trailer tires. Everytime I have inquired about either the 17.5 or the 19.5s, they have told me they don't work with/handle them. Will be interesting to see how this works out as DT has a good rep of standing behind what they sell.

I got the tires installed last week. Paid $140/tire. Was told they are going up to $195 soon. Interesting thing happened. They advertised an F385 here:
Ratings, reviews and specifications for Taskmaster Provider ST Radial F385 Trailer tires

However, what got installed were F835's. Maybe it was a typo in the site. I am not sure. These tires are still 14 ply G rated at 4080 lbs @ 110 PSI. Also, Discount Tires' air compressor will only go to 100 psi so I will need to top them of at the truck stop.

These are some very beefy tires. See below:

Trailer Kings being removed. I was going to sell them on Craigs List but decided to let Discount Tire keep 'em. They were terrible tires and completely squatted out when sitting still with no fresh water and all waste tanks empty, And there were bulges.


New tires with a 4/15 date stamp. Installed first week of 5/15. That's a fresh tire:

4/15 means they were made the 4th week of 2015, not April 2015. But, they are still pretty fresh tires.

I stand corrected. Thank you. My mistake
