Guessing I should replace the old Goodyear Marathon tires on my new to me Surveyor 186 Ultralite (3000 lbs dry). Tires are barely worn but 5 1/2 years old. Not much choice available locally. Tire size is ST205/75R14C.
Nearby dealer "recommends" Westlake tires for about $115 each installed. Says not as good as the Marathons but will do me nicely. Marathons not available apparently.
Other dealer "recommends" Carlisle "higher grade" tires at $140 each installed. Says they are as good or better than the current Marathons.
Mostly we camp locally but planning a cross country trip so want good tires!
So should I spend more & get the Carlise tires? Go farther afield (3-5 hours to USA) for something different/better???
Appreciate any and all input
. First trailer ever and have no knowledge about tires.
