Tire Replacement

So last week I was taking s short trip (50miles) and about 10miles into it I lost the tread on one of the trailer tires. I had checked before we took off and everything looked good. These were the original Westlake tires that came with the trailer and had about 8k mile on them over the last 18 months.

The tire just lost the tread and never actually blew. As it was on the rear axle I donít see how something in the road could have damaged it.

That all being said, any suggestions for a replacement. Iím going to replace all four as today one goes, tomorrow the next. Iíd rather avoid that if possible.

I would replace all 4 with either Max is, or Goodyear endurance. Both are good tires used by a lot of people on here. My oem, tires lasted 6000 miles.

I've been extremely pleased with my Goodyear Endurance tires. I put them on my Cardinal the day after we purchased it.

I know anything can happen to a tire out on the road, but the smoother ride and peace of mind has been terrific for the 2,700 miles we've put on them since May.

If you have a Discount Tire store there, I'd recommend them as well as buying their replacement "certificates". That's cheap insurance in my books.

+1 on the Goodyear Endurance.

Our trailer turned six this spring and it was time to replace the stock tires. After a fair bit of research we went with the Goodyear Endurance, upgrading from Load Range C to D in the process. We run them at 55 PSI.

After a season of towing we're very pleased and I would recommend them.
I have some photos at 2012 Rockwood - Goodyear Endurance replacement tires.

As my trailer is almost 17k max Iíll need an E rating. I thought the psi was supposed to be 80 though.

Almost... LRD is 65 PSI, but we did not want the tires to be too firm for our trailer. At 65 PSI there would be too much bounce, causing too much wear and tear on the trailer and the contents.

Since you getting new I would consider going up to 14 ply steel cased G rated tires.
