I just recently put on a set of Carlisle tires. I have read mulitiple reviews about this brand and didn't have any negatives. I couldn't be happier with them so far.

Run a search history in the forums for Trailer tires. There have been many threads regarding brands, pros, cons, etc. You should be able to get all the info you need.

Some folks swear at them instead of by them, but my Z-7 came with Trail-America tires. I've been to GA twice, Pickwick and KY Lake, plus two summers of fishing around here and they still looked like new when I traded in my rig. Conservatively, I towed that trailer 15,000 miles and they still looked new. When I got a spare for the rig, I got the wheel and a Carlisle tire for half the money that BPS wanted for a spare tire and wheel. The wheel I got is galvanized to boot. It has yet to make contact with the road.

I do maintain the tires at near the maximum recommended pressure. It may make for harsher ride for the boat, but it rolls a lot easier. And, the rig is garaged which protects the tires from the sun's Ultraviolet rays.

Hate to say it but I have had a different result from my T-A tires. Just replaced both after a year and a half. Outside edge bald, rest of it okay. Could be my axel is off, but i would much rather blame the tire. Just put on two new galv'd and they look and feel great

I just got off the phone with a guy who recommends these 8 ply Goodyears, that they put on construction trailers. I am going to give them a shot, we'll see
