I posted this in the Wildwood forum, but I think this is probably a better spot.
My '04 Wildwood needs new tires, and I have no idea what to buy. The trailer's plate says 5200lbs, GVWR 7515lbs. I've tried to Google and get a good answer, but so far all I really "know" is I need LT or ST (and if I'm reading correctly, LT's start at 16"?)
The tires (probably factory, I doubt the previous owners replaced them, and I've owned it since Summer '09) on it right now are 205/75/15. Can I change the tire size??? (Say 225/75? I know I have to stay with 15...and if I can, should I?)
Sam's is usually my go-to tire place, as we move a lot. They have ST205/75R15 Goodyear Marathon Radial - Sam's Club
. I'm not exactly sure how to calculate the weight rating? Do I multiply it by four, since my TT has 4 wheels? If so, I think I might need different tires? It says 1820 at 50lbs pressure, which would be 7280 if I multiply by 4....am I trying to hit that 7515 and have a cushion? We do tend to travel heavy. Our next trip will be 1700 miles and we will definitely be loaded down, as we're moving cross country.
Thanks for any advice!!! (If those tires don't fit the bill, could anyone recommend some that would, and possibly a place to get them installed? We're in Colorado Springs, CO right now)
Also, can someone recommend a decent, preferably cheap, TPMS for the TT? My TV has one from the manufacturer.
