Nothing to worry about. Nothing to be upset about. they gave you a better tire. Go with it. Its a trailer, not a car, or truck. It don't care what is on it, as long as it is close. trailers don't even care if one is radial, and one is bias. It's just a nonissue

just my .02cts you should worry more about the carlisle tires , they don,t have a very good rep.
Carlisle makes six different lines of trailer tires.
If the OP has the Radial Trail HD they have a good rep going for several years. The other I don't know.

I agree with the Endurance being a better tire, however, I would want all running tires the same tread, and load range. If you have a flat and have it repaired, I would then use the repaired tire for the spare. If you keep the GYE, you would lose that option.

My opinion, keep all 5 tires the same, have them get the right spare for you.

JMO but your worrying over a non issue.
Having owned as many as eight trailers at a time (non rv) with five on the road daily (28 tires on the road) many never had the same tire brand or size or load range spare tire. However they were all close to the same diameter and load capacity.
The only down side I found was in a different tread pattern...or load range....or tire diameter on the same axle could cause uneven braking on that axle especially on wet pavement. Usually causing one tire to lose traction.
When I buy new tires for a tandem axle trailer I buy 4.....or 6 for my triaxle trailers. JMO but buying a new tire that may never see the road was a waste of my hard earned money.

I use LT tires so most trailers spare tires saw little road use. I look at a spare as a tire to get me back on the road to the nearest tire dealer to fix or replace the flat tire.

The Endurance and Carlisle HD both are new tires from their MFG and have been out just over two years. Both seem to have about the same service record (good) so I wouldn't say one in better than the other.

Personally I would ask them to put all Endurance on and remove the Carlisle, just my humble opinion.

I'm in the 'don't worry about it' camp.

To the OP, this is 1000% not an issue if the tire is the same size. and you actually get 1 tire that is purportedly of better quality than the other 4.
It's some of the fickle responses on here that make customer service a challenge....
