Click on the photo at the bottom and you can see the 3 tires have Endurance on them I think. Need to check on my laptop when we get back home. Zooming in on my iPad these are 16" IMO according to the stamping on the tires.

The "Endurance RSA" and "Endurance WHA" are not the same tire as the new "Endurance ST".

Thanks, yes I realized that, and posted the links only as "Possible leads about new Endurance line," a whole new USA-made line apparently, which we now know (from the photo being discussed) does include ST tires, but maybe only in 16" IMO.

Thanks again, and welcome to the forum!

Any scuttlebutt in the industry about this new tire coming in ST 15" ? Not sure I would ever buy a Goodyear ST tire, after the bad press about the Marathon ST's . . . FWIW.

Thank you also for helping renderit gather all the 16" wheel/tire/etc. specs. in the 20-footer thread.

The article says "exclusive" relationship. Does this mean they will only be available at Jayco dealers? I expect so.

Since Thor now owns Jayco and of course Airstream, should be exclusive to Thor products. Maybe?

Just completed 8,500 mile trip, last year a little over 10,000 miles all on Michelin 16" on a 30' AS FC. Run a TPS tire monitor system as well. No issues at all with the tires. I run them at 72# cold, in very hot weather at 65+ they will climb to 80-82 # and the side in the sun as hit 108 Degrees F. Unless someone convinces me there is something better I will buy these again. Also, not one rivet pop in the 18,500 miles.

Maybe it will just be a rebranding of a Marathon tire with the Endurance name. Could just be a marketing scheme. Seems like Michelin just did this with the LTX and Defender series tire. Not too much difference.
If the GY Endurance is an improved ST tire why not just call it a new and improved version of the the Marathon. Carlisle did this a few years ago with their "dura trail" technology stamped on their sidewall. This seemed to have helped their reliability just a tiny bit as mine are still holding up. The tires are into the third year so we will see. Whether they hold up I still don't want to purchase Chinese tires in the future.

Thanks again for starting this thread. We have not gotten new tires yet, and are still pursuing different leads. FYI the Jayco Owners forum has some recent comments on the Endurance ST but no new info.

If anyone has additional information on this new tire, please share.

PS -- Here is the link for the thread I just mentioned. Not positive that posting links to other forums is considered appropriate here.

No earth-shattering news but good to see that they are discussing the new Goodyear Endurance ST tire, given Jayco's decision to use it. As the product hits the road, maybe this will be a good source of further info..
