Just curious why you would go back to ST tires. Have you had issues with the LT tires you've been using? Personally the only ST tire I would ever buy would be a Sailun.


Wait, what about the Goodyear Endurance , it’s has a stellar reputation one said, but how’s that possible , at 2 years old .

I agree Sailun is the only one for me , it TRULY has a stellar reputation

But it is still relatively new. Only been out 2 years or so? Launched Feb 2017.. Not really enough time to have a comparable record. They may well be great tires. Only time will tell.

but for now. Maxxis seems to have the best longevity record.


Two years and eight months. Show me a non road hazard failure.

Cherry on top it’s a US Made tire.

Another vote for GY Endurance. They've been around long enough for me and their record is excellent regarding blowouts and failures.
The only thing I don't like about them is they are subject to rock mining, where a sharp rock will burrow all the way down to the cords. Most tires wont do this but mine have several places where I can see the silver cords after removing rocks.

Why? We don't even know what FW the OP has. Unless he's got a 15k+ rig, why not stick with a good E rated LT like a Michelin Rib or Bridgestone Duravis?

Maxxis is very long in the tooth, IMO. Still speed rated at on 65 mph and I've been reading of more failures on them, recently. If you're stuck on an ST tire, the Endurance is probably the way to go.

A little searching of his posts shows
"We have an 09 Bighorn 3370" That model has a 14K GVWR. I agree on Sailun's for tires. Run them at 80-85 PSI.

After having tire problems I ended moving up to G load range, Hartland tires from Discount Tires. Great tires and good price.
