So, how fast do you drive towing?

Carlisle site is very confusing on speed rating. They state one place that ST tires are 65 mph rated but then also talk about N rated. Aside from Discount Tire listing that tire as an N I don't see any information that our Escape size Carlisles are anything but "regular " ST's. I looked on my fairly new ones and there is nothing to say it is otherwise

I recently bought a set of Carlisle radial trailer tires . I too was confused about their speed rating . I called Carlisle and they recommended that I keep my maximum speed to 60 MPH.

If the tire designation moulded into the sidewall doesn't have a load and speed index on the end (after the ST205/75R15), then you have default ST specs: 65 mph, or more with reduced load.

The Discount listing for the Carlisle Radial Trail RH in ST205/75R15 (the Escape size) has the same speed rating of "N" (and the higher load index of 107 which goes with the larger size). I have no idea where Discount gets their specs: off the sidewall, from a spec sheet...
