"Les Schwab is a very reputable company."

That is truly a sad statement as they are jumping on your back before you can get out of your rig that sell LOW quality products. But hey they have great "SERVICE".

They used to be a quality Company but sadly no longer the case,

SAD you didn't get to the GY dealer.

So your spare tire wouldn't have gotten you an additional 155 miles and saved your self more tire issues in the future?


4PM on a Friday I was happy LS was able to get me in and they were just 20 miles away. Plus I was thinking I have three more of those tires on the Trailer.

I may not even have this trailer in two years if they last that long fine if not I will replace them when I'm not stuck between a rock and a hard place.

I read a atricle recently there they were shooting down all ST tires no matter where they were made and going with a LT truck tire?

Yes to the Les Slobs is now up there in the ranks of Firestone Service Centers for the most upselling and ripoff sales tactics.

RE LT tires, you "can" find a few 15" LTs that have decent load capacity, but still nowhere near what you can get in a 15" ST tire if load capacity is something that interests you.
You have 15s, but 14s are a non starter for LT tires anymore.

Not until you get into 16s and larger can you get LT tires with the same or greater load rating as ST tires.

I would have done the same....Don't mind 12V. If you're not wearing AmZoil undies, a B&W hat and a Cummins T shirt, he assumes you make poor life decisions! LOL

Lots of haters but the ENDURANCE has a perfect track record for non road hazard failures.

What? Four years old and a couple years past time for replacement?!


actually his tires were 5 to 6 years old. Trailer was a 2017. More than likely built in 2016. Probably sat on the lot for a year probably had 2016, or 2015 tires on it. 2021 -2017 = 5 years. 2021- 2016 = 6 years. and yes. That is a couple years past time for replacement. Those tires were just looking for a place to blow out. No matter how well they were taken care of.
Did you see the date code on the tires? You're just speculating with no data. The trailer could actually have been a late year trailer, and the tires sourced earlier that same year. That would make them 4 years old. Don't be so quick to chastise someone without determining in advance you're working with facts.


No chastizing. Just stating fact. They were overdue to be replaced. I stand by that, and I would bet the TT was built in 2016. By May, and June of the year. They are already putting the next year trailers on the lot. I bought my 2013 in June of 2012, It had been on the lot for 2 months. That tells me the new model year starts long before the year for which they are named.

Mainland China will mfgr tires to the buyer's specs.

Most major tire brands have manufacturing facilities in China, including GY and Michelin.

For niche markets (like trailers) some companies still use their brand name, others devise creative names for their 2nd or 3rd tier tires - so tire failures don't reflect poorly on their first tier product/s.
Even *you* can be a distributor for "Lynnmore ST" (or LT) tires if you desire. The Chinese will be happy to accommodate you - and produce a tire that meets minimum specs - or improved specs & quality - whatever you want. Line up your US distribution network - and you're in business.

I just had to replace my trailer tires (Maxxis). Had a tread separation that my TPMS did warn me with a drop in pressure from 80 psi to 65 psi.

I had already decided my next set of tires would be good Year Endurance.

I was just south of Salt Lake city. It was a Sunday so I checked in to an RV park and started looking for tires early Monday Morning. Called Big O to see if they had any Endurance tires. They checked their warehouse and all local Big O stores with no luck. Then checked with a Good Year dealer and they could not find a set of Endurance in any of their local dealers and their warehouses in Salt Lake, Denver and Reno.

So I called a Discount Tire which was less than a mile from the RV court I was in. They said they had 29 Endurance tires so I corrected him said you now have 25 tires. They installed a new set in less than 1 hour and I was back on the road before 11:00 am.
