Recommended 15 inch trailer tires today


Recommended Posts

I know this has been discussed before and I have read the latest  thread but trailer tire quality appears to be in constant flux so what would you buy today?  I have a 28 ft gooseneck that I use for long hauling with heavy cars.  This trailer is a 20 ft used for local trips.  Thanks in advance.  Bob Smits

Goodyear ST Endurance 10 ply

from Discount Tire/America’s Tire

with free replacement road hazard

for life of tread.

 

No pro rating - free replacement 

if road hazard renders tire non

repairable.

 

Free rotation & balance.

 

That is what I run on my

aluminum custom enclosed

car hauler.

 

Loaded late this afternoon

in Indiana.

 

 

Headed to Florida.

What would be the repercussions of having the same tires on a trailer as tow vehicle?

They’re an entirely different design of tire. It would be dangerous to use either for the wrong purpose.

Goodyear Endurance tire, made in USA

check air pressure every trip. I also use tire pressure monitoring: EZTire is my choice. Great peace of mind when towing. 
Four towing hazards: rotten or underinflated tires; dry wheel bearings; worn or non-working brakes/lights; and poor weight distr.

#5: Loose lug nuts.  Check torque before every trip (especially if wheels have been recently removed)!
