Trailer Tires

Anyone have any recommendations for trailer tires? Just the standard trailer tire for a 16' car hauler flatbed... I had an incident a couple months back and my trailer needs new tires...with rims. But really have no knowledge of trailer tires. Any ideas?

I just replaced the tires on my boat trailer. I went with the Goodyear Marathon. I paid extra for the Goodyear tires (assuming they were made in the US) and when I got home, I noticed they were made in China. Not to say that all tires made in China are poor quality, but there have been many issues with them.

Hi,If you plan to off roading ,like fishing or hunting trails, find trailer with 6 ply side walls. Won't slash on sharp rocks and branches as easilly. I also balance my trailer tires ,less vibration on lugs(and torque them) Learn't the hard way..

yeah, over the last years he as in business, he was using Redneck's "house brand" tires, with no trouble. one thing that's funny I saw from the 1980's goodyear making tires here, then in the 90's Mexico, and to Indonesia, glad i missed the move to china, but regardless, the price of the tires NEVER went down, they always had their twice a year price increase.

but whatever you get try to get radials, and stay away from bias- ply tires, radials will last longer and are more forgiving and you have to keep a higher air pressure in bias-ply and if one gets a leak or flat and you dont catch it in time they get hot, fast, and will fly apart on you.

I did some shopping around and found the best deal for purchase+install at the local John Deere Dealer. I found them the first time because of a blow out on the road; but after looking around they had the best rates. Their tires are farm equipment rated so I know my 4Runner is fine on the trailer.

Don't use car tires on a trailer. I've used Goodyear Marathons for 20 years with very good results. Check locally for a Wingfoot dealer, I've found them to have the best price installed. Check the Goodyear website for valuable info. They actually recommend running 10psi MORE than the sidewall says to run. This does keep the tire much cooler. Most folks that have issues with Marathons are running sidewall pressure, or worse, even lower pressue. I tow several thousand miles per year with the tire loading at or near maximum recommended and I always run the extra 10psi. Zero tire failures since I began doing this.
