Thought I would contribute to the numerous posts on here about ST tires. I found this YouTube video on Carlisle Radial Trail RH tires (their ST tire). They highlighted them on a truck show on Speed Channel. I thought it was interesting. I was told they are now made in the US, but I have recently emailed the company to confirm this. Enjoy:

I could not disagree more. Every person I know that switched to LT tires have not had anymore tire problems. The ST tires seem to be made to a lower standard. Those guys get paid to promote products but I dont agree with the ST is better than LT garbage.

Me, I'll wait and see. It would be nice to have an American ST tire company. The question really is, can a tiger change his spots.

Over 200,000 miles on non-Chinese ST tires so far. Only issues have been a few repairable nail punctures.

I have been from florida to california to pennsylvania pulling a montana 2880 5th wheel sitting on their radials. I went from a D to an E, and run them at max pressure. No issues.

If Carlisle GAVE ME a lifetime supply of ST tires, I wouldn't even remotely consider running them. I'd donate'em to the city dump where they belong.

Happy camping!!! See y'all down the road!!!

Just bought 5 new Carlisle, went up from a 205 to a 225 on my 75/15s also from a C to a D load. The only choice I had locally was GY or the Carlisle or much cheaper stuff. In my reasearch I found that the Carlisle are about 8oz heavier then the GY for the same size tire, time will tell

I had tires blow out on me that were Carlisle tires. I think the main reason they blew out is the people who made the TT put on the wrong tires. they put 15 and 14 inch tires on from the manufacturers. I had a blow out every time I went camping until I found out they were miss matched tires. I went to 15's plus the spare and over sized and up the side walls and now no more tire troubles. the new tires are Carlisles. been good so far and they are 4 years old now.
