Anyone tried a Hartland tire?

Was at my local Discount Tire the other day buying some truck tires and asked about both the Carlisle Sport Trails (already on the TA) and the Goodyear Endurance tires and the feller tells me to look at Hartland trailer tires. He said they were an upgrade over the Carlisle and on a par with the Goodyear. So I looked up all three on their website when I got home and they rank them good, better, best with the Hartland at better and Goodyear at best. Anyone heard or know anything more about these tires? Discount Tire seems to be the exclusive retailer for them, and I believe they are made in China....

So, Discount Tire recommends their house brand eh?

Hummm, if you're traveling and need to replace one.. or maybe two tires, is it going to be fairly easy to find a Discount Tire store or a Goodyear tire dealer?

D1 Load Range, Speed rated to 87 mph, max PSI 65. Seems a decent tire from the specs, but I've no experience with it. By the way, not that their ratings matter, but Discount Tire rates the Carlisle Radial Trail HD (the stock ones on Escapes) as "best", not "good" - higher than the Hartland. The dealer may have been confusing the Carlisle Radial Trail HD with the Carlisle Sport Trail L/H. They carry both. Based on their own ratings, the Hartland is not an upgrade from the stock Carlisle, although it does have a higher load range.

I expect they make more profit on their own house brand.
Like Costco and Kirkland.

Another interesting thing I've not noticed before. Discount Tire offers the Carlisle Radial Trail HD in a C1 load range (ST205 /75 R15 101M C1 BSB) and in a D1 load range (ST205 /75 R15 107M D1 BSB) for the same price - $80.
