The other consideration, esp if you run the tires at higher pressure, how rough will that ride be on your trailer and frame?

Tires

I would go to a Goodyear fleet dealer and get a price, also I usually make at least 10 phone calls to dealers to get the best price

Not nearly the damage a blown tire from running lower pressure would cause. Put shocks on the trailer and you don't have to worry about it.

I don't think there is any overkill as far as tires go, these are the same size you mentioned 215 85 R16 and I think they are probably cheaper

One word of caution...I notice where the tire dealer was going to put LT tires on your rig.


Search the forums for the extended debate on LT vs ST tires. I and several (many? ) others do not recommend or would use a LT tire on a multi-axel trailer. Bottom Line is the ST tire has a beefed-up sidewall that can handle the axel movements the LT tire is not designed for.


Like others I suggest Goodyear Marathons or Maxxis - neck and neck in reputation and quality.

Tire issues

Be careful about tire load ratings. Spending more for a tire with higher ply rating may be a waste of money for you. A tire with higher ply rating simply means that it is designed to hold more air pressure. Higher air pressure means more load carrying capacity. Most people don't know that the wheel that the tire is mounted on also has a maximum allowable air pressure. Max air pressure is stamped on the wheel. Do not buy tires that require more air then the wheel is capable of holding. Wheels can blow apart to if overloaded.
