Researching tires for the HTT. The original tires on it (2018 model) were manufactured in 2016. These look promising but a little pricey. Has anyone used them? Planning 4000+ mile round trip vacation next spring and want newer tires for it.
I have found as you go smaller the selection of tires also decreases. There were no tires in 12" that met both the weight required and the speed desired for our PUP. Fortunately 13" was an option on ours and had plenty of room. Rainier was the only brand I could find that met both weight and speed. I sold the PUP after one year. Up to that point they were doing great. 14" for the HTT has a couple options and once you get into the 15" and 16" tires you get even more options.When I was looking for tires, the Endurances got nothing but good reviews. Unfortunately they didnt make them in the size our popup needed, so I settled with whatever the local tire shop said was good..... Cant remember what they gave me, but I had never heard of them.
I hope the Endurance tires end up being better than the Marathons they replaced. Their are a lot of Marathon blowout stories out there.
I plan to upgrade TTs in the next few years. The newer one will have 16" LT tires on it.
Our PUP had 12" when we got it. 13" was an option on our model so I stepped up to Rainier ST175/80R-13 load range D speed rated M (81 mph) on ours. The little taller tire nearly eliminated scraping the back bumper. They did a great job for the one season we had it beyond that.I doubt there is any tire brand out there that has never experienced a blowout. Now I am sure some brands are better and experience fewer blowouts than other brands. My popup uses 12" rims and there are no USA made tires in that size that I can find. I am using Kenda Karrier radials in a load range D. I bought my popup used in 2018 and I installed new tires right away. So far they have been great. In 2020, we towed the popup from Louisiana to Colorado and the tires performed great.
