Sorry, let me be specific. If a rear tire, perhaps at night is sloooly leaking, when it gets low enough, it will shred and tear things apart!
If sealant could save the destruction of your trailer it might be worth the goo.


That's what your TPMS is for. Forget the goo in the tires


So confident in my RV tires I don't have TPMS, don't want anything extra setting on my trucks dash.

"On our Cedar Creek the G tires have not stood up. They separate long before they get old or worn."

Invest in some good tires, yes expensive but well worth it IMHO. GY "G" tires have a stellar record.

We saw the results of a fifth wheel not having his tire monitor turned on in front of us in October. He just passed a wide area just before the tire blew. He turned the monitor off a few miles before. Not a good thing.

New Endurance features Durawall Technology

AKRON, Ohio, January 30, 2017 – For years, hobbyists who tow boats, jet skis and snowmobiles to recreational destinations have asked for an American-manufactured trailer tire to help carry their cargo with confidence. Millions of workers who haul equipment from job to job have echoed that desire.

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has answered that call with the new Endurance trailer tire, which was unveiled this week during Goodyear’s 2017 Customer Conference in Orlando, Fla.

“Goodyear is proud and excited to introduce the Endurance, the only radial special trailer tire built in the United States,” said Ryan Patterson, president of Goodyear’s North American consumer tire business.

A tire capable of transporting the heaviest and most crucial cargo, The Goodyear Endurance features Goodyear Durawall Technology, which helps resist sidewall cuts and punctures.

Available in Load Ranges D and E to accommodate larger trailer load capacities, the entire Endurance trailer line carries the N speed rating allowing consumers to travel at highway speeds. The Endurance also contains a wide range of features, including:

An optimized tread depth and decoupling groove, which help it remain cool while towing heavy loads;
Rugged fabric-steel construction, which offers improved durability and carrying capacity while remaining compatible with tire pressure monitoring systems and typical tire inflation stations;
A specialized inner liner, which minimizes air loss in trailer applications; and
A scuff guard, which helps protect sidewalls.


In addition to introducing the new Endurance, Goodyear has unveiled a brand new, special trailer size: ST 255/85R16. The Endurance is the only tire on the market available in that size.

“The launch of the Goodyear Endurance is an exciting development for consumers who want a durable, domestically manufactured tire that they can trust to carry their important cargo,” said Patterson. “Goodyear is proud to meet this need with the new Endurance.”

Jiminlin now you got my attention. I have 5 fifth wheel trailers around here from flat decks to heavy duty cargo to cattle to RV.
I also own a trailer repair business. I have seen a few things. Some guys around here figure when you ask a simple question your 22 and pulling trailers for the first time.
You comment “no more trailer tires”!
I recently was persuaded by a tire shop to go to G LT tire instead of a trailer tire and he showed me how much heavier and stiffer it was in comparison. Even though it is against the law to run LT on trailers around here.
Once again I was changing out a trailer tire that was only 3 years old and likely only about 15,000 miles on it!!
Have you come to the same conclusion then that trailer tires can not be trusted to give one good service. On our Cedar Creek the G tires have not stood up. They separate long before they get old or worn.
Where do you live that LT tires are against the law on trailers?

Hmmm.. really. Perhaps he went to a tire store that can't put LTs on a trailer. Some do that for liability issues, making it 'against the law' for that store.

TPMS would be great. Trying to decide if I can afford a set. I called the manufacturer of them and the batteries will not work in colder weather which of course could be a big part of our trip south.


How cold? I know mine work when it is several degrees below freezing but I don't know how cold they will go.

Is trailer tire sealant effective at cold temps? [emoticon]

The Endurance sounds good. However our trailer calls for a “ G “ rated tire. 110 psi.
Not available in a G rating. Should this bother me? Seems that would be going to something lighter!
Or does one only look at weight rating.
