I had 3 out of 4 carlisle's have the tread come off. No dry rot & lots of tread still left & they just pealed. I'll never buy them again.

Same problem on two of my trailers. Almost new tires just blow apart.

It must be the Goo in the Gooyears that helps the tread stay on

well for what its worth i sold and installed 72 carlisle trailer tires last year and 56 the year before. these numbers are a mix of radial and bias tires sold.

i had one blow out on my trailer but i knew it was way overloaded. i kinda expected it.

of all my customers ive sold them to i only had one complaint and i pretty much expected it too. this one specific customer blew several of them out and when he came back to get some new ones put on they were all low 15psi or more and his dodge truck needed more air than that in all the truck tires. i know his tires are always low and he never check them so i knew it was coming.

ive had really good results and will continue to sell them as long as the complaints stay low.
