My Excella had Carlisles on it when I bought it two years ago. Have had no problems(knock on wood). I would buy them again.

I recommend staying away from china tires, no matter who's name is on it, all junk like the rest of their products.

I've got one year on a set, so far, so good. It would be nice if there was a better 15" trailer tire out there. I paid ~$65 each for the Carlisle load range 'D' tires so I figure I will be ok if I change them out 3 or 4 years from now. We also have them on a utility trailer and the first set went 7 years before the first blow out.

Some Carlisle tires are made in the USA. Carlisle (PA)... a plant in Aiken, SC.

It is nice to hear good reports about Carlisle tires. I had a set on my SOB years back that were terrible. One unraveled at high speed shortly after buying the trailer new. Of course these were smaller tires and I really can't compare them to what is out there now.

I do NOT share the anti China thing that goes on here. I believe it is more important to look at the company who builds the tire and how they stand behind their products. Goodyear builds their tires in China and many stand behind their Marathons.

Hearing from people who actually run these tires is the best way to find out how they hold up. Asking the question is what makes this forum so useful.

Good luck with whatever choice you make.

If you do a search on some of the other web sites regarding RV's and tires, you will not find a very good recommendation on Carlile tires. They also make ATV tires and do not have a good reputation on those forums either. For me, I'd stick with Good Year or Michelin's.

Pappy makes a good point. It seems to me that the tire of choice, if you are going to stay with an ST tire, is the Maxii. Of course these are not made in the USA either but they do get very high ratings here on the forum.

I just put on a set and paid more than what I had wanted. I rationalize this by saying that my trailer is more expensive than most and why cut corners on such an important part of the whole picture. When you get right down to it, the savings with going with a cheaper tire can't possibly cover the damage done if you have a blow out.

I might cut a corner here and there but not when it comes to the running gear. Just my $.02 worth.
