Car Trailer Tires

Unread postby decipha » Thu Mar 31, 2016 7:28 pm

Well since my endeavor earlier this month in high point, north carolina i'm in the market for two spares for my car trailer. I have the unique 5x5 bolt pattern on my trailer so choices are kinda limited.

I did find this

with an M speed rating (81 mph) this is right up my alley

before i click the go button I was hoping to get some feedback from some of the more knowledgeable lads here

if anyone has any info or a cheaper link please enlighten me

The rest of your tires are also radial?

I prefer bias ply tires on my trailer. They tow better and they don't come apart making tight turns.

Im back looking for trailer tires once more

i bought two of the tires in the OP link and theyve been great. My other tires are on the fritz and I dont expect much more life out of one of them with over 20k miles on it and several hours of 80-120mph drags on it.

Looking for at least 3 possibly 4 new tires. To keep as spares. Anyone know of a good site?

Size ST205/75 15

looks like walmart online has the best price 43.87 shipped
