Replacing ST235/80 R16 tires

We need to replace our tires on our Crusader 334ckt after a tire failure. Current tow max tires have weight rating of 3520lbs and 80 psi. We are totally lost as to what to replace them with. Trying to find an ST tire (not LT). Any suggestions?

Look on the metalic tag at the left front, see what axle ratings you have and find tires to at least equal that. My guess you will have 6K axles. If so go shopping for a decent LT tire and quit fretting about ST failures.

X2. LTs and never look back. I run Transforce 235/85r16E never had an issue.

I agree that an LT tire is the best tire for replacement but you say you want to stay with the ST tire. I have not read of many ST tires that are not problematic. The Maxxis 8008 as stated seem to be the best but can be hard to find, especially if away from home and in need of one quickly.

Regardless, IF you decide to go to a LT tire it MUST equal or exceed the axle rating of your trailer. An LT tire in the weight capacity you would need may create clearance problems and require a higher rated rim because of pressures.

I called around and was told the Maxxis 8008 has been discontinued. Is this true? Was offered an Omnitrail or Marathon instead.

I would do a little more research to make sure tire dealer is trying to sell you something else. Omni and Marathons are on more "no" lists of buyers.

Maxxis tires are alive and well. I just purchased 6 they Amazon at 147 each, free shipping. M8008 ST235 80 r 16. Might have gone with LT Tires, but clearance issues prevented that. Si far, so good.
