Anyone using Carlyle tires?

In checking out Discount Tires I noticed Carlyle tires with a higher speed rating than the Marathons and a higher load rating. Has anyone used these. I would appreciate feedback! Thanks

If you have 15" rims many use the Michelin 235/75x15 XL tires. What is the allowable gross weight of your trailer. My Classic 25fb is 8000lbs.

Sorry, no personal experience with Carlyle. I've read good and bad about them on this forum. If you do get tires from Discount Tire make sure you monitor the techs. They have a habit of putting floor jacks under axles vs the jack points on a trailer.

What is the load range, and how many plys are these tires?

I have 10 ply Maxxis tires that have higher load and speed ratings. They cost 3 times as much tho.

My only experience with Carlisle tires (New. when I purchased my AS in '09), not good. Thread separation (blowout/damage). Sent tire to Carlisle with their return label, UPS. Upon their inspection, they sent me a check for all 4 tires to be replaced. I assume they found something wrong. No comment! I suffered with the repair to the banana wrap and wheel well trim.

Probably should check to see if its a type error.

I purchased four new Carlisle when I started referbing my 1976. Probably have less then 2500 miles on them. About a month ago I traveled the Blue Ridge Parkway and one of the treads separated without loss of pressure. I assumed it was a fluke. Then two weeks ago in South Georgia lost another tread with no pressure loss. Both did damage to the wheel well and banana wrap. Not willing to go through this again. Bought new 16 inch aluminum rims and 225/75/16 Michelin . Expensive but now I can stop worrying. If you look under tires subgroup on this forum "spent all day fixing wheel well"there are several post with good tire information.

I put 4 new Carlyle "E" on my trailer as soon as I got it home. Guy at Discount said that they were not getting the support from Maxxis and they were pushing Carlyle at that time. I ve had them since march of 2013. No issues so far.

I had 2 sets of Maxxis on the last trailer.

Hi from AZ. . .As opposed to throwing away a perfectly good set of 15" alloys, I installed a set of Carlisle trailer tires (Radial Trail RH) on my AS. They were $110 each & I only have 100 miles on them so far. I'll be sure to post my experience with as we go. We're headed to Southern New Mexico next week,.(but, remember, I had 2 sets of GYM's on two trailers without a single problem) just sayin. regards, Craig

Sometime through this winter I will be buying 6 new tires for my Avion 34W. I'll be interested to see all comments in this thread. I'm leaning towards sticking with the GYM load range D's that are on the trailer already, but I'm open to good real-world-experience suggestions. I'm not interested at all in buying 6 new alloy rims just to go up to 16" tires.

My international Serenity 30' allowable gross weight is 8800 lbs. the Michelins have a max load just under 2000 per wheel so not quite enough. I think I need a load range E for this trailer.

The Maxxis 225/75/15 can carry enough weight for the trailer depending on inflation pressure but rated at a max speed of 65 mph. While I don't stay above this for sustained periods of time I do occasionally and would feel better with a higher speed rated tire

Yokohama ry215 at 2040-lbs per tire a better choice on a tridem if you keep it at or under 10k lbs.

Many better choices than most any ST tire.

My experience with Carlyle tires has been excellent. I had never heard of them, but they came with my first AS, a 76 Tradewind. Although used, I kept them for 4 yrs and 3,000 miles until I sold it and purchased a '99 Safari. I put new Carlyles on the Safari and have driven approximately 15,000 with not even a flat tire. Perhaps I've been lucky but so far they have been great.

Discount Tire recommended Carlisle instead of Maxxis when I needed to replace the Marathons two years ago. They commented the Carlisle's were made in a new US plant and were specifically designed for the temperatures of the Southwest. They do seem to run cooler. I've got close to 10k miles on them with no problems and will buy them again.
