Default Best trailer tires for my aplication

Ok start with the wize azz comments..... ok I will get most of them off for you guys...... Why do you need tires it just sits there anyhow...... Why you need tires, oh must be for your friends boat....

I have a 30 foot formula dry weight about 7,000-7500 pounds on a C channel heavy duty galvy trailer probably weights at leaste another 1000 if not 1500lbs. This is a dual axel trailer and I have 15" rims. What does everyone think that my best bet is for tires?

Jon

What's up Jon?

How ya do'in?
using 15's is going to limit your amount of choices, in a high ply tire. The Goodyear Marathon, ST225/75R15 is a 8ply with 2540lbs per tire load capacity, with a nice strong bead. you should be able to get them for around 80 to 85 dollars per tire.

Doing well Mitch how about you. Work work work makes audio a dull boy..... I will see if I can find any of those this week in my travels. What should I have gone with 16's? I was going to go with 16's but I thought that I would have clearence issues. I am fairly sure that I did not however.... I will double check when I get back to the shop later today.

I think solid rubber tires would be best...They dont "flat spot" after sitting for YEARS !

Somebody had to do it.....
