Tires
« on: July 22, 2019, 04:39 PM »
So I ACTUALLY got the boat out of the garage and went to Lake Mary with the club this past week end but had a bit of trouble on the way there and the way back.  I am, actually was running Commodore ST215/75R14 on my Triton trailer, they were about 3ish years old.  I have heard that you need to change your tires about every 3 years or so here in AZ.  I guess I got lucky with my old Goodyear Marathons because I had about 8ish years on them with NO issues.  So what brand tires are y 'all running and would you buy them again?

A big shout out to Stevert who helped my on the way back down the hill.  He graciously stopped to help and even took me to Big O tire to pick up a new tire and back to my truck with a floor jack (that's another even longer story.  It's a 205/75R14 but it fits and got me home.  If it wasn't for him I would have had to have my boat towed to my house and that would have not been cheep even though I was only 35 miles from home.

Iíve went back to Goodyear a few years ago. I put the new then Endurance trailer tires on both my boat & fifth wheel a few years ago. So far so good. But this is why I carry 2 spare tires for both my boat & fifth wheel as Iíve had trip to both Lake Mary & Alamo when I needed to use both spares!!

Hereís your pic to remind you of your pain...... Didnít hurt that beautiful boat of yours did it?

I have Hartland Radial ST ST205/75R14 I got from Discount Tire.  No issues with 2-3 Powell trips: https://www.discounttire.com/buy-tires/hartland-st-radial

I had Carlisle on my 5th wheel for about 3 years. When the Goodyear Endurance became available, I swapped to those.

The boat also had Carlisle, but run it with Heartland now.

Out of the new tires (5 Goodyear- 2 Heartland) zero problems. The Heartland have more miles, and are wearing better than the Goodyear

The 17 had tire debris all over the place the entire length...donít think you were alone this weekend.  Sorry Mac....that sucks. Captain Stevert to the rescue.
When in doubt, set the hook!

It was no bother at all Mac.  Glad to have helped.

I just put new Goodyear Endurance tires on the Nitro a couple of months ago at Discount Tire.  I had Carlisle Radial Trail's on it but after 3 years, one had separated. Discount inspected the spare and the other tire and found they were not going to hold up.   The Carlisle tires had a six year warranty on them so Discount Tire replaced all three with Goodyear's for $94. $450.00 worth of tires for $94, I hope they last a while.

I've had this happen 3 times on my Triton trailer, and it's always during AZCA events. haha

I don't remember what tires I have right now, but I got them at Costco. All the ones I've gotten before were from Discount. I feel like they're Goodyear though. I've always thought that the more you use the tires the longer they'll last. Something about the oil inside the rubber moving around to keep them fresh.
