Tire Issues and Pricing

We have a 2016 Chaparral Lite 29MKS which we will probably load close to maximum. The trailer came with E rated tires which from reading many posts on this forum are sub par and or are simply maypops. I just returned from a tire dealer who quoted me a price of $1666.00 installed and balanced ect for a set of 4 LT235/85R 16/14 Load Range G. Does any one have any idea as to whether or not this is a reasonable price. Also does anyone have any idea what to do with the take offs which are E Rated and the only miles on them are from the factory to Orlando.

What brand are you taking off? Craig's list or something to sell them.

$1666 for 4 trailer tires sounds extremely high. 4 E rated tires for my truck were only a little over $800 out the door. I think I would shop around some more.

Taking off a brand called Constaney. Yes I thought 1600 was quite high that's why I posted this. However since posting I have been all over the internet and it appears on those particular tires that the price is pretty good. They are G rated and I guess there are not that many choices.

Big difference between E rated tires and G rated tires.

Not so sure that is too bad. My 2013 Trilogy came with a tire upgrade option, Goodyear LTís, H rated from G. That upgrade was $900.

I'm looking at about $1500 for 4 Goodyear G614 tires mounted and balanced. That doesn't included the $500 for new wheels to handle the required 110 PSI for the tires. Make sure your current wheels support that tire pressure. It should be stamped on the inside of the wheel.

Well that's 2 of us with "constancy" tires. I have not found anyone else who had even heard of them. Must have just made 8. I guess G rated tires cost that much. I've never researched that tire so I stand corrected. For that much they should be bullet proof. I would think you would have no problem at all with those tires.

Have you though about Maxxis ST tires? they have the only ST tire not made in China and have a good reputation. The load E can easly handle the weight of your trailer.

I have them as the upgrade option on my new Wildcat, I had also put them on my previous Trailer.

Maxxis are made in Taiwan which is just down the road from China.
