"Shield" Brand Tires??
I went to talk to my local tire guy about Carlisle tires and he rcommended "Shield" brand 7.00x15 Bias Ply Trailer Tires. They're 8-ply, Load Range D, 2040 lbs. max at 60 psi max. He said he's installed them for quite some time and that's the only one he keeps in stock now because of the quality, durability and price.
This guy's been in our neighborhood for 25 years. I don't have any reason to think he'd steer me wrong, (especially when they're the cheaper option) but I was hoping somebody out there has some experience with these, good or bad.
He quoted $70/Each. That includes mounting, balancing and valve stems... everything but Tax.
Seems like a good deal to me, but is it too good? Think I should steer clear? He said the Carlisles would be $90+/Ea, Goodyear's even more. (Arguably not a huge difference in price between any of them, but enough to make me check 'em out!)
