I just bought this tire yesterday for my 13Scamp deluxe front bath.
These Carlisle Radial Trail "RH" tires replace a pair of Carlisle Radial Trail tires which had about 34000 miles and nearly 5years of service.
I saved the best one to replace a never used "B" rated marathon as the spare.
It must be said that one of that last set developed a trace of sidewall surface cracking and was promptly replaced at no cost in the first year of service. This was followed by four years of flawless service, amazing and even wear and the most stable inflation I have ever seen in any tire. They were maintained at 50PSI and my now spare has about 1/2 tread and a good carcass.
The RH has improved heat and UV protection and I expect great service over a long time from them. Take a look...

That looks like a great towing tire, Floyd!

The tread depth/design looks to me just about optimal for tracking and rolling resistance....I know that gas mileage gains only really add up after LOTS of miles, but every little bit helps, in my opinion.

Most famous phrases credited to Edward Bulwer-Lytoon:

"the pen is mightier than the sword"
"pursuit of the almighty dollar"
"the great unwashed"

I'm surprised you left out what's perhaps his most famous line of all, and which led to the establishment of the annual contest named in honor of the venerable author :

"It was a dark and stormy night..."

The purple proser and devotee of the pathetic fallacy.

For all his literary sins, I think that Bulwer-Lytton did not much indulge in pathetic fallacy, which is the attribution of human traits/feelings to nonhuman creatures or objects.

I think the master of that form is Walt Disney....well, and PETA!

Technically I believe you're technically correct, Francesca, technically speaking. Aw shucks! you're right! There is no indication in the stormy night setting that the trees nor the rain nor the dark of night are echoing, reflecting, enhancing or otherwise making a sales pitch for the passions of young maidens and masters. My bad!

I smell a winner...

Will you make an official protest if I enter that line in this year's contest, Jack?

Good one, Dave!

Francesca, a nickel's worth of wind ain't worth a dime in most quarters but maybe I've got what it takes?

Sounds like a pretty good descriptor of the actual prize, and here I quote:
Quote:
Finally, in keeping with the gravitas, high seriousness, and general bignitude of the contest, the grand prize winner will receive … a pittance.
I'm on it- I expect a cut when you win!

Your Agent

P.S.

Didja notice that I purplefied the Contest Entry quote? Looks even better in its proper color, don't you think?
