Probably the reason why when the ST tires (Goodyear Marathon) on my previous Casita needed replacement, I bought LT tires. The max speed rating went from 65mph to 112mpg - not that I would drive that fast but it does show that the LTs are better made tires. The Marathons scared me as I never knew when they would explode. The LT tires never gave me any problems up until the day I sold the trailer. The new owner is still running the LTs even now.
There's a good probability that when the Escape tires are due, I will do the same.
Went down the LT road 2 years ago. Doesn't appear to be much available anymore in the 15" size. Airstream uses Michelin, yet they are on 16" rims. Very happy with the wear after 5K miles on the Goodyear Endurance. Better than previous Maxxis.
