Also as a moderator, I need to stay as unbiased as possible. If I start recommending/pushing brands of tires, being in the tire business, that makes me more of a commercial entity (or almost factory rep) in these forums.
I've always been curious too, but never asked because I thought your reasoning was fairly obvious. Thanks for confirming it.

Who cares what he runs for tires? Unless he has the exact same unit, with the same spacing issue, what he runs for tires doesn't matter.

He found info relevant to the op, shared it, stated he didn't know them but that by the numbers is exactly what was sought. What more is necessary?

It's true, I am very grateful for being pointed in the direction he gave me. I would not have thought to check those otherwise.

Greenball Tires for ATV | Golf | Farm |
I have the greenballs and have run them on several trailers with great results. As far as my research has shown they are the only trailer tire manufacturer that lists a 75mph speed rating at maximum load and normal tire inflation. Others claim 75mph either at lower loads or with additional inflation.

I generally prefer to have some safety margin. I will not run my tires at max load, nor at max speed, but it is nice to know I could.

well he IS a professional and owns/runs a for profit based business where in others willingly seek and pay for his PROFESSIONAL expertise and opinion? nothing wrong with that.....theres lots of psuedo tire experts like myself who will give your their pseudo professional sopinion for free!! LOL .....as a business owner myself who charges 60$ plus an hour for specialized one on one help i dont think its fair to give him grief for giving FREE generalized answers and or suggestions for others to investigate on their own....?
