Whatever tires you get, shoot to get a set that has carrying capacity of 20% over your trailer weight. That is number of tires x max tire load is 120% or more of your trailer weight.

In my case, my tires are 2,535 for a total of 10,140. My GVWR is 7642 so I'm around 125%. I've heard of folks who are running 105% or less. I think that is asking for trouble.

Last summer I was driving across Kansas and the outside temp was 111 degrees. the tire monitor said my tires were at 125 degrees. PSI... way up there....

To those whom said, "never let air out of a hot tire"..... all of the reading that I have done on this subject states that "the psi would be too 'low' when the tires cooled down".....

If this was the case of the tire(s) being to 'low', then this would be of concern (thank-you for pointing out you concerns)... but I will state that the tires never returned to the cold psi starting state, even when parked for over eight hours. When coming from a colder climate (as I did) and going to and staying in a warmer climate, the psi in all tires will naturally rise. I started out in a colder climate and had the psi at the stated 'cold' tire beginning point.

Check and adjust your psi on a cold tire before starting any trip and each day on that trip. (you may be surprised at the numbers, when going from climate to climate change)

I replaced my with Kenda Karriers from Etrailer. Went from Load range c to d (one of the very few brands that I found in my size with the "D" rating. I have had them for 4 years and about 12000 miles without any issues. When I received them the DOT date indicated they were about 3 months old. I have read good reviews about the Carlyles also.

My GVWR is 3252 and the max single load weight is 1710. So I think Im good based on your theory? I assume I donít have to include any extra weight we may add for supplies?

Gross Vehicle Weight GVWR is the max the trailer should ever be at, which includes all your stuff. The design allows your stuff to weigh the difference between the GVWR and the dry or unloaded weight.

That is the tire I would get as well. Both my boat and travel trailer have these tires now.

And NEVER let air out of a hot tire if you started the day with the specified cold PSI.

cold tire assumptions of mfg

mfg's generally consider 65 degrees ambient temp to be the correct temp at which to check for "cold tire pressure"
