I bought the Carlisles at WallyWorld for, you won't believe it, $47 each on a close out. Load range D. They were 8 months from manufacture date which is older than I would have paid full pop for but still a great deal. I was going from 14" tires to 15" and needed to buy rims as well. Found some nice chrome steel wheels on ebay, $200 for 4 rims. One had a cosmetic flaw and they sent me a 5th rim free so I had a spare as well. Altogether I have about $500 in 5 tires, rims, valve stems mounting and balancing. About what I would have paid for 4 14" tire from the local tire store.
Did a 2500 mile road trip this August and was completely satisfied at how the tires performed. Have about 4000 miles on them now and couldn't be happier, or feel safer. We'll see how they wear over the next 4-5 years. I only put 2x8's under the tires when the trailer is stored. I also use 303 and tires covers in storage. I am not going to take the tires off the ground either.
