when you guys upgrade the tires do you also go with a slightly taller tire to add additional ground clearance on the trailer? or do you typically keep the same exact tire size.

I just put the maxxis on mine. Just remember if you go to the E load range you can still only pressurize them to 65psi as that is all the wheel can handle so you don't get anymore weight unless you also replace wheels. I just stayed with D range. Got them at tread quarters for 135 installed with the extra warranty (he threw in for a dollar)

Radials vs bias tires??

So after a month of emails and phone calls the tire distributor is willing to reimburse me 60.00 per tire or upgrade my bias tires to radials but I pay the labor? I need advice and recommendations on what to do....

I finally can get rid of the cheap factory tires that have less than 2k miles and are shot..

I got $75 per tire out of them,,,,for 4 tires.....$300 total. They wouldn't give me anything for the spare. The tires were 8 months old with less than 2000 miles on them.

Thanks for the quick response I will ask for 75 per tire. When I asked about what radial tire they would provide I received no answer so I assume it's more low grade product. What tires did you get?? Maxxis?? Is radial better than bias?? My TT is 37ft .

I took the check, sold my originals on Craigslist for $200.....and threw in the extra $65 and got 10 ply at Discount Tire. I'm satisfied with how they handled it. He offered to send me new tires,,,,but I said,,,,,NO THANKS!

I did a little research on your trailer specs and IMO you have 5080# GAWR axles. Also IMO you have ST225/75D15D tires.

If my assumptions are right your tires were under inflated causing the outside edge tire wear.

You should seriously consider moving up to the ST225/75R15E to gain some needed reserve load capacity. If you do make sure your rims will hold the 80 psi needed for maximum load capacity from those tries because (again) IMO you really need it.

Cold, hard truth is that most of the companies put crap tires on the units in order to keep costs down. My unit came with China crap but it did have laser aligned axles so that was a plus. I immediately pulled the trailer tires and sold them to a local who used his trailer for around town use. I put on my usual commercial grade LT E load tires and put those tire worries behind me. Good luck with the tires.
