The tire size is shown in the Features list for each model on the Escape website. All models use the same size: ST205/75R15

ST205 / 75R14, for trailer service only.
If ETI uses the same tire on all models that is what is on ours.

Unless you have 15" wheels, like my 17B. ( Option at the time ).

They haven't used 14-inch wheels and tires for at least a few years. They do use the same on all models now, but it is the 15-inch size (ST205/75R15). There has been at least one other size used as well in the past, but not now.

"ST" at the beginning of the tire designation means "Special Trailer"; all ST tires are for trailer service only.

lotta folks over on the FiberglassRV forum swear by using LT (light truck) tires rather than ST, as the quality of most of the ST tires available today is generally awful, they are all made-in-China.

The Goodyear Endurance tires are made in the USA. They are a special use trailer tire. I put them on our 21 when we got it and I am happy with them. They have been good for wear for the first 10,000 miles or so, they track well behind the Highlander, and they have held air well when mounted on the aluminum rims. Cost for the raw tire at my dealer is $108 per tire. And I can buy them locally and when they mount the first two I stop for a five guys burger across the street and then I take the second two over and get a Dairy Queen when they’re doing the second two. I am a man with a plan.

Do we have to
Some folks use LT tires even though they are not designed for trailer use. Most use Special Trailer tires.
Almost everything you buy these days is made in China. Check your iPhone or laptop, for instance. You think it was made in the USA?
You are a few years away from driving Chinese electric cars ( BYD is the builder ). They are far advanced in battery and solar technology.

Almost makes me wish we'd ordered a tandem axle model. Now I'll have to choose between a burger or ice cream.
