IMO you're worrying over the wrong issue as the Goodyear Endurance is superior to the Carlisle HD tires you ordered. A couple years ago one of the stock Chinese tires on my Coachmen split for no apparent reason and before ordering a new set of tires I compared the Endurance LR D to the same size Carlisle HD LR D. Putting my full weight on an unmounted Endurance the tire barely deflected at all, did the same with the Carlisle and it collapsed noticeably. Not saying the Carlisle HD isn't a decent tire, just that the Endurance which is manufactured in the US is demonstrably better.


The tech at Discount tire had me do the same thing with those same 2 tires. The Goodyear was much stiffer and beefier. They have 2 steel belts, 2 poyester and 2 nylon belts.They also weigh 3lbs
more than the same size Carlisle which only have 2 steel and 2 polyester belts. And yes they are made in the USA.

I think the Endurance D is a better tire and I would run as presented.


Yep and I would have bought the American tires in the first place. At least now when the china bombs blow off, you will have an american tires to replace it with.

If you intend to do a five tire rotation I would prefer to have all five the same. If it is a spare and you do a lot of towing, I would keep it and buy three of the same kind when the others wore out.

If you do not do a lot of towing, you have a dandy spare.


Twenty six foot 2010 Dutchmen Lite pulled with a 2011 EcoBoost F-150 4x4.

Just right for Grandpa, Grandma and the dog.

I won’t buy LR Cs. Ds are tuffer.


Ds are tougher and Es even tougher still.
Es. have stronger sidewalls and I like em better towing in curves.

Either are better than any Passenger tire.
