Replacement Tires

OK here we go....

I am looking to replace my current tires on my Trailer. The max load is 9600lbs, i am running at about 8700 right now.

What tires are you using? What have you had the best luck or longevity with?

Thanks,

If I were buying tires today, I would look at these Radial Trail HD

I had good luck with Maxxis, but they usually have to be ordered because very few tire shops carry them.

I usually go at least a size larger and have had good luck with load range E when replacing OE tires.

Tire industry standards are very consistent in requiring the replacement tires to have an equal or greater load capacity as the Original Equipment tires provide.

I am not in the market for new tires, but at this time, if I was, I think I would go this route. Good capacity, speed rating is higher than I like to run, and reasonably available everywhere by mail order.

Maxxis. Also agree with increasing one load rating. My rig is 9500gvwr. I weigh in at 9400. The Maxxis have been better performers over the Goodyear and Carlisle.

The load range increase allows for higher inflation, better mpg and piece of mind knowing you are well over the stock 50psi requirement.

Interesting website on a tire I haven't heard of before. Sounds good.
If you can use the Michelin Ribs because they are the best. More expensive but still the best and most reliable.

I just went through this. I ended up getting Maxxis which will be installed this afternoon. My second choice was going to be Carlisle. My trailer is just over 8k pounds loaded so I stuck with the D load rating for my situation.
