Maybe Carlisle... nothing else made in the US anymore in that size. I am currently using WestLakes, going to be going to Maxxis when the time comes.

If you don't go great distances and carry a lot of weight Carlisle will do fine.

carry weight, drive long distances, etc etc. Trailer ST Tires will all fail at some point and since almost all if not all, are made across seas, they will get the blame. EVERY day a U.S. L.T. etc tire blows up on someone's car, truck, trailer or horse wagon. It's often not the fault of the tire, but the fault of overloading, not inspecting, rotating, or pure neglect.

I just drove my trailer across country (San Diego Cal to Raleigh NC) on tires that were put on a trailer in Indiana, drove to Cali and then I pulled it back across country (in AZ heat of 115, driving rain of TX and crappy roads in MS). They'd been on the trailer for 1.5 yrs.

Take care of them, replace before 5 yrs and keep covered. Don't over / under inflate and fill or check each morning before heading out. Simple recipe to controlling the controllable as much as you can.

Good luck finding a decent us made trailer tire. If you check enough trailer forums you'll find a lot of people like the Maxis ST tires. Seems Carlisle and Goodyear Marathons have had a bad few years. Maxis is a Canadian brand but made in Thailand. I had two sets of Maxis on my old toy hauler and never lost a tire. I'll be putting Maxis on my Aerolite once I get some wear on the factory tires.
