How many posts about GY Endurance blow outs have you read? About as many as I've read about LT problems.
Not to say the GY is as good as LT's but so far the track record seems positive. My TT came stock with GY Endurance 16". I'll let you know if one blows.

When I looked for 15" LT LRE (or LRD) tires I had a hard time finding any. LRC is the highest I could find. Maybe I didn't do a good search. But if anyone has names of 15" LRE tires, I'd like to get it. About the only one I could find was a tire used on MB sprinter vans.

16" another story, they are a huge number to choose from.

Did a quick search and looks like Provider Tires are either no longer being made or no longer available on the East coast.

Providers by Taskmaster.......Discount Tires and Simple Tire will get them for you or their web adds say they can. My ST235/85-16 E was ordered by my area Discount tire store.
Like Sailun S637 16" load G tires which are the most popular in that class has to be ordered from their warehouses by just about any dealer
Provider warehouses are located in Hampton, Iowa..... Sikeston, Missouri.... and Mount Pleasant, TX. I would say TX has more equipment/flatbed trailer mfg than anywhere plus their warehouse system being centrally located close to RV and other trailer type mfg's was a planned choice.

I see that Goodyear has come out with a "new generation" ST tire. I do like to tow at 70 mph so the ST 65 mph speed limit doesn't work for me.


Goodyear Endurance is the tire.
They have a higher PSI and speed rating rating when you compare a given size to the off brand ST tires.

Video comparing them to another tire

Another video, ST205/75R15 Endurance

There is no reason to deny yourself a good tire for anything you own because there is no local dealer. I needed new 19.5s for my motorhome. I'm surrounded by at least a dozen places in a 15-20 minute drive that could provide tires. I saved hundreds per tire by having an online provider drop ship tires to a local truck shop. The tires were name brand, a few weeks old, and I rolled out the door for less than half of the highest local quote I got.

Tires are one item where I believe easy acessability is important.

Even though I have not needed a unscheduled tire replacement since 2006, I am keenly aware that the right road hazard can cause a failure at any time.

So I like to have a tire that can be had relatively fast, wherever I may be.

Before I buy another set of LT's thought I would check and see if I should be looking at ST's again.


To answer your question posed in your thread title - the answer is yes, Goodyear Endurance ST tires manufactured in the USA. Installed a set myself after one of the original Chinese manufactured tires suddenly split of it's own volition. Maybe there's someone out there with a set they're not happy with but I myself haven't read any negative reviews anywhere from those who did decide to give the Endurance a try.
