Hiya guys.

Wow, long time since I was here, where's the 5ver section gone?

Anyway, to the point. I live in the UK and Fulltime in an American built 5ver, a KountryLite built by Allen trailer.

From new, it was fitted with Goodyear ST205/75R15 but due to our daft E.U rulings I'm not allow to import a new set here!

I've heard that I can get a set of Carlise tyres in that size over here even tho they are a U.S spec tyre but as nobody has heard of them, I'd like to ask you guys if you know what thier reputation is like.

If good, I can get them for £66 each here.

If bad, Gooyear USA have recomended the Goodyear G26 Cargo which IS E Marked and available here. Admitedly, its a /70 profile instead of /75 but that should be OK on my wheels/rig. These are approx £100 each.

Any help you can offer would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Paul

Paul - Welcome back. I've never used Carlisle tires, so don't have any personal experience I can convey. They recently sold their Transportation Products Division as explained at the below link, but that shouldn't affect existing tires. I just talked to my local tire dealer, who I've worked with for many years and whose opinions I respect. They sell Carlisle tires, and while their first choice would be the Goodyear Marathon, they had nothing against Carlisle. Hope this helps. Good luck. - Dave
