All I run on any trailers I have is radial trailer tires. The difference from bias belted is amazing!

The other side also says 09. Doesn't make sense as I put them on when I got the trailer and I sure don't remember replacing two of them other than when I first put them on. I'll check with Les Schwab as they did it and they keep it in the computer- if they ARE 09 I'll leave them on.

Marathon Quality ???

1. A 6 year warranty won't be much better than a 3 year warranty if, after 70 months a tire fails in the boondocks and the only replacement you can find is a Schnitzu Uberroader tire, that's made in Uszberkonia. (Yoz-ber-konia).

Goodyear knows that there is almost no chance of someone owning the same trailer for 6 years, warrantees are seldom transferable, and pro-rated warrantees are almost always based on full MSRP.

2. The Marathon tire family has not had that good a following as to quality, with lots of reported tire failures.
Google Goodyear Marathon quality and read up first

My apologies to any Uszberkonians I may have offended.

The web will soon have you replacing your trailer tires every year.
Much of the Marathon web mania was unwarranted.
There. I just added to the wealth of web knowledge.

Can attest to that! The options on tires in Needles California I discovered isnt all that great! Funny part was I ended up with a brand of tire I had never heard of but while attending the NOG spring meet this year another member looking at my tires and indicated they had the same tires - guess how they ended up with them & where from! LOL We had a good laugh over it.

We've towed lots of miles over the last 6 years on Goodyear Marathons and have yet to have a problem. Unlike many trailer's ours is only parked for a couple of months during the summer and than it's in a relatively mild NH climate.

We are also not people who push their tires to their limits, driving at 62 mpg or less, not traveling in the heat of the day and keeping them at max cold pressure.

WOW I wish I could drive at 62 mpg.

I know you meant 62 mph.

ST tires are probably not primarily used for recreational trailers but for utility trailers for people in business. Those ST tires are no doubt abused greatly and taken to construction sites where they would encounter all kinds of things to cause failure. That's my guess.

All I've had from the dump and those cases are slow leaks. Almost all of my tire problems are total blowouts in the highway, in some cases with pressure checked less than ten minutes before. I've had no issues on my camper or small trailer. My car trailer eats them like candy. I just assume it'll cost me a tire every trip.

A good article but, like others I've read, it leaves me with questions. It is stated that ST tires have a life expectancy of between 3-5 years but it doesn't specify when the clock starts; the day of manufacture or the day you put the tire into service. If it is the day of manufacture then tires should come with a sell by date. If it's when the tire is put in service then how long between then and the date of manufacture is too long? Raz

We bought a 2008 Out Back recently. With original GoodYear Marathon tires. They had better than 80% tread left. Both tires were made in 2008. I had both replaced with Carlisle yesterday. The garage said they do usually balance trailer tires. I had them do it any way.
