Carlisle tires time bomb!

Made in China, Carlisle tires are a blow out waiting to happen! May look good, but check for weather cracks on the inside no matter how old they are!

I ran 2 sets for about 9 years, total, and had no issues... With other choices out there now, I'm not sure I'd run them again, but I wouldn't feel too bad about running them if I had to.

They did manufacture some tires made in the USA. The ones stamped "Made in China" are the bad ones!
Climb under your RV and look at the inside side walls.

If you were not running them at sidewall maximum pressure, that was the cause of failure. Their warranty reflects that.

Carlisle makes several lines of ST tires so which line gave you problems.

Carlisle tires time bomb!

When looking at tires I look more at load range and on every trailer Iíve had I always replace with 1or 2 higher load range tires. I had a blowout shortly after delivery of my car hauler .... I bought Carlisle tires for it ... up from D rating on the other brand that came on it to E rated Carlisle and run at the max rated 80 psi and have had no issues .. 4 years now . The 65psi D was within the load capacity , the E are overkill but are not as stressed in my opinion , again 30,000 miles in they look great.
Unfortunately, There are very few ST tires that are not made in China.

Depending on your GVW, you'd likely want G rated tires, even if you're placarded for E's. You'll have to check the wheels to see if they're rated for 110 psi, though and, if not, replace them, as well. Right now, Sailun seems to be the way to go. Much cheaper than the GY G614 and have a better rep. There are some other G tires that are awful good, too. Our 30' triple axle GN trailer has Providers on it and I see a =lot= of commercial trailers with Providers around. Not having to shop for them myself, I can't speak to costs or model #'s, though.

That was my logic when I upped from Ds to Es on my old Komfort.

Never had issues with mine in 2.5 years and near 10,000 miles.
Millions of TT's and 5er's running on St China bombs and we get one or two a year rants about how bad they are.
I guess we should start rants about every RV MFG and every brand and model they sell.

Look on the LH FWD external side of the trailer. You'll find the vehicle certification label there. The tire size and recommended cold inflation pressures for them will be on that label. That's your starting point because that's the minimum allowable load capacity for any replacements.

LOL.....We know where Carlisle ST tires are made..... but which line did you have issues with. Carlisle has several lines of ST tire lines but not all are a blow out waiting to happen.

You may have had a ...
Carlisle Radial Trail HD ..their newest and a very good Tire
Carlisle Radial Tail RH ..fair results
Sport Trail... terrible service record
Sport Trail LH...not so good
USA TRail....new and just out so no service record yet.

Those with Carlisle ST tires may be interested in which line is a blow out waiting to happen.

If you need a G rated tire Sailun is the answer.Some people don't know what good.
