I vowed to never buy another trailer tire again, and give Light Truck (LT) tires a shot for trailer duty. But I recently discovered that Goodyear has a new trailer tire they promise is better.... The Endurance. Slightly more expensive, but the load ratings are way higher for the same size, speed ratings are up, they have a new rubber compound, and are made in the US. I caved and ordered 4.
I'll give an update when I get them and mount them up....

Let us know how they work out. Ever since my last blowout on the then top trailer tier (Maxxis) I vowed to not return and went LT tire. Havent had an issue since and they look brand new after thousands of miles of towing. I will need to get new ones due to age well before they are worn out.
I thought you may try those commercial van tires but the Endurance sounds nice, I will need to check them out. Thanks for letting us know.
EDIT: Just checked those new Endurance tires out and they look really nice! I would try them if I was in the market. There are still a lot of lateral forces when turning put on trailer tires that are not a factor with a LT/passenger tire. These look like the first viable alternative to an LT. I'll still with my LT's (Wrangler HT)for the next couple of years but I am looking forward to seeing how these new Endurance work.
