I currently have this tire on my 2015 Durango 380 FLF. I have not had any problems; however, I was wondering what experience anyone else has had.
So far, the Endurance is enjoying a decent service record.

The ST 235/80R16 is the proper size for your Durango Gold. Your Durango Gold also has 7000 lb axles. If you look at the weight rating on the Goodyear Endurance tire in that size. they are under rated. Not by much. But still under rated for the axles on your trailer. 123/N or 3417lbs/87mph. A minimum rating of 124/L is needed for your trailer. Just sayn', run them at you own risk. Goodyear anything would not find its way onto anything I own......ever. JMHO.
Have the Goodyear Endurance on our 2016 Durango 315RKD with 12,000 miles on them at this time (235/85 R16). Very pleased, no issues so far. Happy Campin....
I'm a LT tire guy with about twice that on them, but I am seriously looking at the new ST's for replacements. Starting to get strange wear pattern so it won't be long.
Sometimes trailers get strange wear patterns due their free rolling position (not driving or steering). Experienced this back when I was operating a truck trailer leasing location.
From a HD Equipment site:
Irregular wear is a special problem on free-rolling axles like trailers and tag or pusher axles. “Trailer tires are on a free-rolling axle with almost no torque applied, and this creates a very slow wear rate. As such, trailer tires are prone to irregular wear,” says Roger Best, sales engineering, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations.
