Tires Escape 19

Question? My 2015 Escape 19 that I bought new still has the original Carlisle tires it came with. The tread is still good, but I am concerned about the age and breakdown of the tire. I have been told after 6 years they should be replaced.
Also, I have looked at the replacement cost and there is a considerable difference ($40) between staying with the current Carlisle or switching to a Goodyear. They are both "D" rated. Any suggestions? Thanks for the help!

What's popular

I'd had good luck with Carlisle's on my sailboat trailer and E19, but I did go with Goodyear Endurance tires this summer for replacing the 7+ year old stock Carlisle's.
I didn't do a cost comparison. Coffins don't have pockets, and often, you get what you pay for.
Just my observations and lame opinions.

It was a no-brainer for me. I went to ETI and bought two mounted on wheels and balanced Carlisles for less than just buying the bare tires at a tire shop.

I've put a lot of miles on Carlisles, including some less than ideal roads, and never had an issue.

I see Goodyear Endurance ST205/75/15s are 4 for $653 at Walmart on line. I bought new steel valve stems and had my mechanic mount and balance them. I bought a total of 5. He told me that is far less than he could get them for if he could even get them.
