The 7 year old Maxxis tires are shot, starting to break apart in the ribs. I have had great luck with these, wondering about the New (to me anyway) Goodyear Endurance tires made in the US and seem to have good reviews. So Maxxis 8008's again or Goodyear Endurance? 2011 Jayco Eagle 321RLTS max at 14500. So E load range at least. 235/80/16.

Between those two, I'd go with the Endurance. They are a newer design allowing a much higher speed rating. While we don't need to tow more than 65 mph, it is nice the tire is capable, and implies better built.

Or put the Sailun S637's on it, then you have a steel ply carcass tire, which would not require the full 110 lbs on inflation. 90-95 should be fine. Chris

“90-95 should be fine”

Or you can follow the manufacturer’s recommendations and be better than “should be fine.”

Most people, when they have good luck with a particular brand of anything, they stick with it.

Why not stay with Maxxis?

Although I will say I had great luck with Goodyear Endurance on my previous RV.. and have heard alot of good about Sailuns.

Good plan unless the OP's wheels are rated at 80 psi max. Never over pressure a tire or wheel. BTDT on both back in my younger knew it all days...even after my tire dealers told me what can happen.

OP, look at the chart below for the available ENDURANCE 16" sizes and load ratings. You could always up the size for more capacity at the same 80psi if you have room. Do you know what your actual load on the tires are???

I will tell you why, the ENDURANCE is a trouble free tire with 2 2/3 years on the market. GY is Made In USA.

See below.

I started tracking the on-line reports of failures of the Goodyear Endurance ST tire line when it was introduced in the fall of 2016. That means the first production is in the last few months of the 3rd summer, and the second year of production is in the 2nd year. Because I have not seen any reported non-road hazard failures - compared to previous reported failures for the Marathon, I am declaring that Goodyear has fixed whatever problem they had with their ST tires.
